    I am not really sure what you are asking.

    Yes, you can dye parts using RIT. I understand that if you dye darker you will be ok.

    I am not sure if you can go lighter. I think once they are black, that is it. You might be able to slightly scuff them, but I am not sure.
    Have you looked at the RIT website?
    I have seen the white parts too online, not sure where.

    I am sure that someone with more knowledge on this subject will chime in.

    Or go to URC, they have a paint thread. try that.

    Look on eBay for the white dyable arms or whatever your looking for. I think they discontinued them

    Yeah, you can only go light to dark. If you have black and want them orange, just sell them (or keep as temporary spares) and buy white ones. You can get any color RIT dye on ebay. I just got Tangerine, Sunshine orange, Scarlet and Cherry

    The Tangerine is a deep orange-red. The Sunshine orange is a standard orange.

    Ok, looks like RPM used to make white a arms for the 4x4. A guy on ebay has a few sets left. But looks like the front a arms are different on 2x4 vs 4x4: http://www.ebay.com/itm/RPM-WHITE-fr...-/390500273586

    RPM has never made white parts for the slash. At one point they may have made them for the rustler but they are no longer available. And i have never seen any anywhere. I think your choices are black or blue for most parts.

    This is not correct. RPM made a special order of white a-arms for the Slash 4x4 for ebay seller Python Motorsports. A different ebay seller is now selling them. I just called RPM to confirm this: (909) 393-0366

    ok, but it wasnt made available to the general public. What i mean is you cant simply go down to your local hobby store and pick them up. and still those arms are for a slash 4x4, which are of no use on a slash 2wd.

    You're right. And in the end, we still don't have white front a-arms for the 2wd.

    Are the rear a-arms the same?
