    I hear fiberglass mesh tape, you know the sheetrock stuff, and shoo-goo. Personally, I like painting and finishing bodies, so I let em get thrashed, so I can do a new one

    shoo-goo works very well, this is what i use on my onroad bodies, i never broke the traxxas body (yet)
    I have 15 r/c's and my slayer & slash are the best

    Drill a small hole at the very end of the crack then use the mesh and shoe goo. The small round hole stops it from spreading. Works the same for metal.
