Who sells the full wraps? I've only seen the sectional ones like upgrade/fastlane.

Mad props to those pro airbrushers out there, I love wraps but there's just something different about a brushed body. I hate painting bodies, I suck at it and its not worth the time invested imo so I buy wraps and stare at brushed bodies with envy lol.

You will never get a solid piece on a body or not good.

I dont think there is anything wrong with wraps if that is what you want but I dont like it when people sell themselves short. If you put your mind to it and apply yourself, with some patients almost anything can be accomplished. Now I'm not saying anyone can airbrush a masterpiece, there are some that are gifted with amazing talents, but unless you have some sort of disability there is no reason you cant do well. Someone said they are just lazy, well I dont know what to tell you, but you have to maintain and prepare your r/c to drive it so there is know reason you cant do a little more work to paint. Its worth it to me.

I'm in this sport to race, not to doodle on lexan that has crazy un-realistic curvatures for hours on end for an end result for something that's gonna get dirt and rocks slung on it and cracked/scratched/broken faster than it took me to make it.

Preping a car is different, there is a direct correlation between time/effort spent preping and success on the track, the same cannot be said for painting bodies. Waste of time/money imo. Plus its fun to spank $100 bodies with my monochromed rattle can job that doesn't even have the windows taped off lol.

I paint all my r/c's with a rattle can. My point was you can do it yourself, doesn't have to be a show piece. I like my stuff to look nice and I think it does and I did it myself and thats all that maters to me. I dont spend hours on end either just simple designs. If you want a wrap or a high end airbrush job, nothing wrong with that either, just saying anyone can do what you put your mind to.

I agree 100% w/ what you said. I shouldn't have quoted your post, I was just speaking generically, not directed at you. And I was only stating my opinion. A few posts up I commented about being jealous of nice airbruhed jobs, and wraps look good too. That's what makes this sport fun, seeing all the different bodies. I don't think I've ever seen two similar bodies at a race. I just don't have the time/effort/or patience to get paint jobs to come out looking presentable. Id rather turn a wrench. Just my $.02.

the one thing I have noticed about wraps is they last and last and last. Paint will crack and chip with time. I regularly clean my lids, after every run it's spotless again....I do the same with my 1/10 car but it is in fact paint.....lol

I got a wrap from upgrade and so far it has been good to me, selection and being able to design it with there website gave me more options than I could ever want.This was my 1st wrap,The one thing i found out was ya really have to take yout time.And they are durable.
