Later

again ve8 thread? also it doesnt matter if they are clear or not i am just using them as masks they will not be on there permanatly

The ve8 will break a chassis sooner or later and they wear faster then other e cars. Not saying the hb car is junk its just made affordable. For the price there not worth buying used really.
i think you should shut your mouth and **** off, kk, people dont need bad critisism from a tool like yourself. Enjoy your day i know this made mine

What you dont know is im a proud hb driver. I know the hb ve8/d8 from inside out! I know what they do and what they break. So before understanding what i said like the guy who started this thread sees keep your mouth closed. I simple said i dont think its worth trying to get paint off lexan, just spend the extra $22 and buy a new body. Also i said the car wears fast. Im guessing yours maybe still new and you havent gotten much time on one but I have. The hb line is great and will drive one anythime BUT they wear out FAST. For example cvd's mainly, they wear out really fast and if not maintained they will fail. So before you say bad criticism see what im saying. Ask anybody whos been in this hobby for a while, you spend more and work more then drive. Also the ve8 needs upgrades to make it last long as far as chassis. Thats more spending. You see what im saying? So before posting not understanding where im coming from is somthing you should keep tp your self. Also the foul language may it be sensored or not is way inmature and not needed. Thanks

i know how to keep cvds maintained. but i have been in the hobby fot 6 years. i had a nitro stampede an electric stampede and a slash then i went to some better brands besides traxxas i got an ofna jammin then found a good deal on an hpi baja. i didnt really like the gas so went back to electric

oh and a few tricks i have picked up i would like to share are to soak your a arms and plastic parts in just below boiling water every once in a while this makes them more flexible and less brittle

and for bodies with scratches on them use this http://www.amazon.com/Simoniz-Clear-.../dp/B001P5TDM0

first clean around the scratch then clean the scratch itself with a razor blade so it is free of dirt then apply the pen

Yes boiling parts make them stronger but hb plastics are really strong as is.
