    Body trimming

    Hey guys, I got my sport kit built and driving. Even just doing some tests the bumpers were getting in the way, mostly the rear one. Im going to do the rear bumper mod, that should fix the back. But what are some ways to get more clearance in the front? I could just take the bumper off, but I like how it looks. Are there any good mods or different bumpers I could do? Any help is appreciated

    Maybe try making something that would raise the bumper up a bit, and trim the body a little so it is a little more raised?

    lol I was thinking of trimming the bumper somehow I can just flip the mount just like the rear mount and trim the body. Duh.

    Got the rear done. Going to keep the actual bumper flipped upside down, looks better (to me) than right-side up.

    Before:

    Metallic blue, with some black here and there. Should look good if I don't mess it up, its my first paint job on an RC.

    Thanks Juan! I'm loving it too . Took the rack off when I went crawling, it's a little heavy. Currently working on the tire mod.
