sweet cant wait to see it vato.

low: dont mess with suspension or anything yet. wait and drive it first. then adjust it to what you want more. it will be easier. and dont go take screws out then locktight them in. im sure most will be licktight already.

currently in a project. building up a tyosho. slightly traxxas, slightly kyosho. plannign on doing some crazy stuff with the suspension. mostly going to be rusty arms and gearing, but different chassis. updates later

SWEET! Hey are these the hinge pins that hold the upright castor blocks to my hubs on the pede.

They have different sizes and I think the 44mm are for the susp. arms themselves!

It's called a marbled effect! I saw it else where and thought of giving it a try! And you don't need a air brush! You Crumple/wrinkle up a plastic bag in to a ball, dab it in to a water based paint like parma fast pearl blue and dab it on. then do other color's too! Didn't even use my air brush! simple and easy!
First dab on Faspearl blue, then Faspearl green and blue blend, then Dab on faspearl white!
