Default Upgrade rc Wraps

Anybody know how they work. I currently have a solid red body and want to buy a wrap. Does the wrap cover the whole body or will you be able to see the red.

I did but its kind of hard to see if it covers the whole body or if the body is painted.

does it go on the inside or outside of the body. I am going to assume outside. which would lead me to believe that it won't last long. When i put decals on my buggy, no matter how much i clean it and press it one, In a couple of weeks the corners and stuff start peeling back Do thease work the same way. If they dont, i might wanna try it.

theres a ton of people using our stuff at all the tracks you go to in LA, have a look next time you're at a big race


they go on the outside of a brand new body, then you paint the inside to match

Wraps are the shiznizzle, I have paid for my last custom paint job. I have seen wraps that lasted 10+ gallons on a truggy, they actually help hold the body together. I reinforce my bodies with strappng tape on the underside and coat any areas that may rub the paint off with E-6000 (shoe goo, but cheaper and doesn't affect the paint)
My bodies usually last for a while-they are a little heavier but I am not adam drake so I can't tell

And on a side not they are better wraps than upgrade-my personal fav. Jab graphix they can also wrap all your gear to match(charger, power supply, radio, styarter box fuel bottle, glow ignitor and anything else you can think of

These wraps not only protect your body and make it last longer but the high quality of them looks great race after race!I have had one wrapped body on my 1/8th scale buggy all this year and after a wipe down and some spray wax and buff it looks just like new.It is a thicker material then the stickers you get with a kit therefore it is much more resistant to scratches.
