Default Off-Road Services By: "Smiley"

I am having a tough time finding a job right now, So I'm going to try this. I have been racing for 9 years, Mostly Electric up untill '06. Then I focused on Nitro, both Gas Truck and 1/8 Buggy. I'm a 2 Time ROAR Region 9 Regional Champ, 2001- Stock Truck, 2007- Gas Truck. I also have many top finishes in 1/8 Buggy as well. I am offering services that many racers dread doing. Below is a list of the Services I offer:



Building New Kits

-Completely build the kit for you, using box setup or setup of your choosing.
-Mount and glue tires that come in the kit (If you chose)
-For alittle extra, Paint the included Body to a Paint Scheme of your choosing.

Just to Build the Kit- $75
Build Kit + Custom Painted Body- $110
Build Kit + Mount and Glue Included Tires- $90
Build Kit + Mount Included Tires + Custom Painted Body- $125

"Also Return Shipping will be added"


Rebuild Current Vehicle

-I will completely tear down your vehicle, clean it and check for wear.
-Anything that looks like it needs to be replaced, I will contact you and go from there.
-Will also clean your Dirty Tires as well.

Basic Rebuild/ Cleaning- $50 + Any parts needed to Rebuild
Rebuild + Cleaning + Cleaning Dirty Tires- $65 + Any Parts needed to Rebuild

"Return Shipping will be added"


Custom Painted Body

-I will Custom Paint your body.
-I can come up with a design for you, or you can provide a design of your choosing.
-ShoeGoo can be added to the inside for added Protection.

Custom Painted Body- $40
Custom Painted Body + ShoeGoo on Inside of Body- $45

"Return Shipping will be added"


If you can think of anything else, I can probably do it as well. I know that Alan Burton has a thread on here already, just thought I would put my hand in as well! If you have any questions, Feel free to PM me or email me at:

I've bought a body from Smiley and it was really good work. If you do need a painter, he's someone you'd want to consider.

Hope this works out for you in while you find another source of income. good luck.

Also going to offer another service:

"Race Roller Look Over"

-Most Race Rollers are less than "Race Ready". I am going to offer a service that makes sure that its truely "Race Ready". Make sure all srecws are tight, any that go into Alum. or Metal have Locktite on them, etc. Balance the included tires, Set droop, and make sure nothing binds, and moves freely.

Race Roller Look Over- $45
