If it were painted right it would not flake at all. I shoe goo and screen door mesh all the impact areas of the body and repair cracks for the season with the bodies that I paint with Pactra paints... they stick and don't flake. Kyosho had a brain cramp when they painted these bodies. The right paint would not flake... at all.... I think it IS a problem as the first practice session, while dialing in the servos and suspension... some minor impacts popped the paint off. It should have been done right and then the body could be repaired pretty cleanly.
The Kyosho BMW and Ferrari bodies held up fine in the abuse of racing. No flaking on either of those bodies on my original GT.
