    hey rc fan, is that a summit front you have?

    and where did you get the bumper below that? does it help with impacts?

    Looked at them on there site, which ones are they? They list two different part numbers, one for the front of a slash and the other for the rear.

    I havent had any issues with the 2.2 "Epic" rims so far, they've held onto my dirt hawgs fine at 65 mph (btw, if you plan on going that fast, balance your tires!!!"

    That body is a lot nicer than mine. I don't have the engine compartment visible in the back.. Although they obviously came with the same sticker kit...??

    Thanks, This is the Revo 3.3 Bug Body.


    I like the 1/16 much better. 3.3 was the second body ever painted.

    Powerman, that's a beautiful blend on your paint job, there!

    What do you guys use for paint? (And, for that matter, what's required for prep'ing lexan?)

    RC-fan, I LOVE those clip-keepers! How did you put those together ... or did you actually BUY them somewhere?

    Thanks, I use sooooo many different types of paint I cant list them all. Just make sure it is for lexan or polycrylic(not sure about spelling). The biggest thing I do for prep work is I use denatured alcohol on the inside instead of soap and water. It provides a surface that the paint adhears to better than just water. It will remove any oils or residue that may be present. After painting I back everything with a light coat of black. For areas that rub I use the silver tape that they use on duct work. The shiny stuff not plain old duct taps. It sticks great and takes a long time to rub thru to the paint.
