Since this seems to be coming up a lot recently, here is a good site on how to use Rit Dye: http://www.misbehavin-rc.com/pit-lan...ying-nylon.asp And here is the list of colors they have
Just from my experience over in the rustler and stampede boards the Red and Blue seems to work the best on the Traxxas gray plastics.
I've not done my slash yet, but here's an example on my Stampede and rustler
(I Don't recommend doing springs as they come out pink as do the chrome all-star wheels, however RPM Chrome does dye nicely.

Those colors look really bright! How long did you end up leaving it in to get that color?
It doesnt take long at all. I did a very dark green and a dark rust color. Only took about 8 minutes worth of soaking.Originally Posted by dryoung
2 Stock Slashes
2 Mod Slash VXLs
These were done last summer so i don't remember exactly, but i think the blue was about 15 minutes and the red was about 20... the best way to do it is have a timer let it in for 5 min and check it. then pull it out again after 10 etc. till you have a color you like.
The longer you let it soak the deeper the color will get. These if you get a good deep scratch in the plastic still showed the gray. but i thought it was cool cause it's like primer and gives it more character.

does anyone know if u can dye RPM blue plastic products a color like red or orange???
ready to lose? because i drive a slash...
you can only dye to a darker color so purple, black, and possibly maroon would be your options.Originally Posted by kooky-kid
RPM has great info about all these things on their site
1:1 is more fun, but scale is in my budget
Yeah most people that dye the blue parts go a deeper blue... not seen any other colors that have been tried.
I just used this method so here is an updated link:
