    nice looking body man, but what is the deal with the epic bead locks, they are not that good and i hate them. i had to switch to axial beadlocks and they hold the bead under 3s power all day long. trust me dont get epics

    thanks for the heads up. my system is a novak havoc 13.5. (2S) ive heard about the beadlock issues. i might have to consider something else. do the axials have the same offset and bolt right up? what tires will fit them. any pics would be great. thanks for the comments

    1slash, 28 for the body. 33 for the decals. 10 for paint. so $71.00

    any proline tire that mounts on a 2.2 rim will fit the axial beadlocks. i own the rocksters and they look great.

    Freakin sweet man! I'm also considering the motoXXX decals, the red scheme one. Did you have any trouble applying it? I'm afraid that I might screw it up, it's one expensive decals. Would I need a heat gun for it to confirm the curves on the body? You seem to do it very neatly. I couldn't help noticing the tire polish that's great man...I thought I was the only one to do so...I treat all my RCs just like my real car...they gotta perform and look great at the same time!

    i was gonna get the red but someone else i know has it. i didnt use a heat gut, but im sure it would help. i just took my time and was very careful. these stickers are heavy duty! work the sticker from the center out so you dont get air bubbles. i did trim some areas with a hobby knife when i was done..great decal kit. well worth the money. only thing is it does add a little weight, but the brushless will take care of that!

    Many people mentioned about this UpgradeRC decals being heavy duty. How does it compare with other RC decals, like the thickness and etc? I haven't seen an actual Upgrade RC decals yet, so I have no clue about it..all I know is they look so good, despite their price, still cheaper than most custom airbrush jobs.

    outofsight, there is no comparison on the decals. these things are heavy duty and can take a beatin! they actually add a little weight. they are that nice. the best way i can describe them is that theyre like shroud decals for a motocross bike. well worth the $$ IMO
