I just want a body to last. when i paint them they just chip and look like hell after 1 race weekend. ther has to be a more racer friendly way to have a good looking rc.

I have skinned many, many, many bodies and $50 is the going price. I agree with you on the paint but I am not a painter.

At $50 with the amount of work that goes into design and templating we might as well be stealing these wraps from the companies that make them.

I am actually surprised any one can even make money at $50 a wrap.

Just checked out the rev site and it doesn't look like they have a wrap for the Losi 8T 2.0 with a Proline Bulldog body. Did I miss it?
