    Indestructable bodies

    Hi all, 1st post, Had my slash 4x4 for about a month now, and like it so much i bought them for 2 kids and the wife as well. My last rc was a Tamaya Frog....lol

    I recently bought a 2wd body as my stock body was getting all cracked up (guess I should concentrate on driving better lol) I decided to make it really durable, so I took it down and had it rhino-lined.

    It came out really nice, and is totally durable....can't scratch it or break it.
    Decals and paint, and it looks pretty good. It also makes it a little quietter when it runs.

    Hope this helps somebody save a few bucks on lids!

    How much did that cost? And how much does it weigh? Could be a good idea for a bashing body!

    IT didn't really add much weight .....maybe doubled the total weight of the body.

    Cost me 20 bucks

    I'll try and post some pics of it tomorrow

    any relation to Line-X-ed It?? Where's those pics??

    I tracked this guy down on eBay, who was selling these last month. Looks like he's got another one.

    OK ....so....no, no relation to the line-x guy, and no, I don't work for Rhino....lol....just thought this was a good Idea.

    As for pics, they are forthcoming, as I have a 2nd body being lined as we speak. It should be finished tomorrow, (Friday) and I will take a few pics. My daughter attempted to paint the last one pink, and it is horrid looking now.....lol. Didin't hurt the rhino-lining at all, but it is embarrassingly ugly.....lol.

    I will get pics up of the new one as soon as I get it home from the shop.

    The stuff in the spray can isn't nearly as good as the real stuff

    Rhino is good, Raptor is better, Linex is best, however, Linex is the most expensive and is hot tanked, so you have to be careful what you spray it on because it's been known to melt automotive plastics

    But do we really need a hard-core lining? I would bet the store-bought spray cans would work just fine for our applications.

    The cheap stuff tends to peel and crack when flexed

    The good stuff is more pliable

    I thoughtof this myself, instead I went to wal-mart and camo duct tape and did my body in that, it looks sweet quiet and very durable, and when it start looking bad I rip off another peice and put it on. The funny thing is everyone at the track thinks i painted it at first glance. Give it a try I will try and post a picture later

    Wow. I'm going to try this. Would be nicer if they could line the INSIDE though. I'll have to pickup a spray can and try with one of my busted up bodies.
    More RC's than most of the people here.

    let's see some pics of that. I've seen quads done in camo tape before.

    What pickup truck body is that? I really like it. Would help keep dirt out and it looks cool.

    I actually used Wall Mart spray in bed liner inside the body of one of my trucks and it's awesome. Paint your truck how you want it, then spray the bed liner. Adds a good amount of weight but adds a lot of durability as well. Not as much durability as what Rhino-lined-it did, but it would work and still keep a nice looking paint job in tact.
