Man is that bright!!! It looks really good though, I probably would have thrown some more fades in there, but over all it should make a really good racing body thats for sure.

Very nice! Since I won't be getting my buggy for a few weeks maybe I will go ahead and get a body and get started painting. It will be the first time I paint a body that I don't need the next day. LOL

bump steer is when some point in the suspension movement the toe-in-out will get greater or lesser.

and a longer wheel base will make the care more stable over the rough stuff.

They are not in the USA so postage would be a killer I assume for you. I got mine + a few other options when I ordered my kit. Got it from Nikkis Hobbies in HK.
