A sakura paint marker.. while its not completey dry you can just use your fingernail to scrape it off the gloss and make it a clean edge. Any good branded marker should be okay. And if you really wanted to make it worth it ..do a final coat of "clear" with CA glue. To make it gloss edge (test it to see if it reacts negatively with the paint first) ..this edge in the photo is matte. So far it holds up pretty well if it gets knicked or scratched I just touch it up.

Back the day... (lol early 90's) I rememberd in a rc car action magazine they would do a pro drivers "under the hood" and like show off little tricks and mods. Colored wires.. annodized stuff...etc. well someone did this! I remember the first I saw the edges were painted white..I wish I could remember drivers name...

yall feel free to go for it !

Default I like a clean set up too.

I bought the Schelle plastic one and the plastic cracked before the screw even got snug. I ordered the ya-4sf one now. Thanks for the tips.

Has anyone tried to fit a b74 body on a b64 or vice versa? I know the rc8b3.1 body will fit the rc8.2 buggy with some extra trimming. Wondering if this would work for the 1/10 predecessors. Cheers 🤘

The B64 body will fit with some trimming on the front. I ran it for a couple weeks until I could get the new body painted. I mainly cut the front to clear the steering and the front corners.

You are very welcome!
IIRC I saw a dedicated, as yet unreleased RDRP B74 fan mount in a picture of Sven Rudig'sor Joona Haatanen's car at the Euros somewhere. Let me see if I can find it...
Edit: Here you go! It is Joona Haatanen on circusrc.com

Default B64 diff washer size

Iíve been trying to get the b64 diffwashers due to the coning issue but in the Uk everywhere is out of stock. The part number for the b74 shim is only for a complete gear set including washers so is an expensive way to get the washers

does anyone know what size the b64 washer is or have an alternative that will fit?

Which washers are you actually looking for, the blue ones people are using instead of the large ones behind the pin?

If so I believe the importer stock has been depleted and they are waiting for fresh stocks to be shipped from AE.

As an alternative I've been using the Core RC CR451 5 x 8 x 0.1 shims in mine, 2 shims each side as the original kit shim is 0.2mm thick. Been working perfectly for a while now, 10 in a pack for about £2

Most people who spoke to me on Sunday wish they hadn't .... we all get those meetings where luck is definitely not on your side but Sunday was just a disaster!
