Shoe goo is some tough stuff. It really makes a body last a long time.

Add the meshed drywall tape to the ShooGoo and it makes things 10 times stronger than ShooGoo alone.

Hey guys,

Got another question. I just bought the JConcepts Illuzion body. What I need to know is how are you guys trimming out the body for air flow, or do you trim out at all? My motor has been temping around 150-160 with the nitro body on it, and I don't want it to get any higher. I was thinking of trimming out on the sides where the body has the step ups? Would that provide enough air flow?

Thanks for the help!

Jeff

I went minimal with my Venting back in the day and it never proved to be a problem. 160-180 after a hard run is more than fine.

Thanks!
