Use a paint brush I like one that is a little harder and bristles stuck together as you get pretty good brush stroke effect as well

A quick pic of my 210. All that is left is to rebuild the diff as it was used and the diff feels pretty bad. Next week will be my first outing and I can't wait!

I did not see that one coming. How about filling your nose and mouth with paint just before a sneeze? Bet you easily could do 3-4 lids at once this way...

Gotta say this sounds slightly more pro though:

Well ive narrowed my search down to the tlr 22 or the Durango 210.... How is the durability, smoothness and would there be anything that would need to be upgraded out of the box? This is one BAMF... Parts avalability i am not worried about because my LHS has about everything and I got my bestfriend Amainhobbies.... also, what do the all of the Configurations between RM and MM, as in there are 2 types for each one? Im just going off of a vid i saw.

The tranny can be built one of four ways. It uses the same case just different idler gears. Take your time and make sure you are following the right instructions for how you are building it.

I got to help make those things. Both my cars were the ones used for measurements. They are super nice. Enjoy them

does anyone know who would have the shock seal cap in stock like this http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ock-Seal-Cap-1
or possibly the plastic one from the kit. It screws on the bottom of the shock and keeps the oil and internals in. Thanks
