Yea, i don't think stickers will degrade any performance or lap times.

There was a time when all we had was paint and some learn hot to paint or pay some else to do it.

Today we have paint, masks and stickers, all work great.

Choose the one you like and go with it. For sure you will have the chance to try methods, lids do not last very long without scratches.

Hey, do you guys have any issues with air bubbles in your stickers? If so, what do you guys do about it?

Just use a pin or the point of your exacto knife to puncture and expel the air.

These body wraps to me are:
1. Quick, spray stick done!
2. Cheap!
3. Easy to apply!
Paint...isn't quick, isn't cheap, and masking sucks!

To each his own though, check em out and give them a shot.

then you know bodies don't last. So why waste the

The stickers don't weigh that much and you cannot feel a difference of the track. Chad Bradley has been running his UpGrade wraps on both buggy and truggy for a year or so. The stickers make your bodies stronger I think. The difference between paint in weight is probably a dirt clod.

Ive actually decided to run without an air filter to save weight. I figure it will help me out in the long run.

But doesn't these sticker sets cost upwards of $50? If so then why not just go ahead and get custom paint. A little more diverse in color and design then stickers. But if I am wrong about price please correct me.
