I dislike the paint scheme he has but for some reason it looks good on a Losi body. Maybe because kyosho has a wider body so his paint scheme is stretched out more. With the losi body its more together and it looks better.

Yeah, it definitely looks better on the Losi body. I remember when I first saw that scheme on the RC10T3...I picked one up based simply on that paint scheme.

Just something about how a buggy/truck looks on the box that will make a middle-school kid want it that much more.

From the OG RC10, to the RC10 Championship Edition...

I think Mark's paint scheme would make any buggy look good. I like it.

Marks scheme is money! He is a real nice guy and I wish him the best of luck with the move to Losi.

Fancy meeting you here. Rappapaint must be stooked with the Losi connection, new paint all the way from MI.......Nice! I might need to ship some things to him.

BTW, the AKA is painted I believe. Bravo!
