ive been reading alot of threads about the Rally VXL and the KB version (if theres a differance besides styling) and i realized that there is a slight problem with over heating. It was than i wondered how I could protect my investment cause lets not kid ourselves this hobby is an investment and i found imadeadoot's post http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...or-ventilation and i decided i wanted to do something like that. than i started looking at my KB body to figure out how i could vent it without taking away to much from the intended look and i came up with what i did in these pictures. although i still have to vent the rear but im waiting till i get my body reamer in to make nice holes instead of half fast junk
the overall look
the hood which i hope will create a vacuum and pull air in
the roof scoop which will push air hopefully directly on the engine
i know the holes arent perfect but this is my first "good looking" vent job. also i coated the underside with white appliance paint because its durable (look at how many dings your fridge gets without scratching) and with it being white itll also help keep the colors more vibrant.
With the appliance paint, is it still flexible or is it stiff? I usually use car undercoating but wanna know how this is working out for you as I may try it. Can you get the paint at like a Home Depot in a spray can or how does it come? Does it come in any other colors than white? Just ask as I have seen black and red appliances before. Thanks for any info
i just saw your post Dropped sorry for the late reply. yes its still flexible it makes the body slightly heavier but not much and yes you can get it at home improvement store i picked mine up at lowes. and im sure they got other colors.
