As mentioned I am looking for suggestions. 190mm or 180mm or 200mm? Which is the best fit for TC6.1 Painted Bodies?

You need 190mm bodies.

I paint my bodies myself with a rattlecan. If you don't have two left hands it is easy. Just use Lexancolors for example from Tamiya.

Thanks, but I need display quality for this car and I cannot do that myself.

Just get a Tamiya or HPI body set. Spray bomb it a solid color and use the included decals. Boom.. display quality.

If I was to get a new chassis and dont want to do anything I would get the WC chassis, it seemed to be great on both carpet and asphalt.
How is this done?

I have completely tore my TC6.1 apart for cleaning and rebuilding. I run the car on asphalt during the summer and carpet during the winter. Since its apart I could narrow the stock chassis down to 88mm. But how is it done?

Cool, I got those tools. The cutoff disc's go fast on carbon fiber. Is there anything better? I have a air grinder with a cutting wheel but its like a 3 inch wheel.

Is it worth cutting or should I leave it alone? I have a spare thats why I thought I'd give it a try.

Go look in the painting forums. Find a painter with a style you like and contact them through PM. http://www.rctech.net/forum/painting...hotography-59/

I would strongly suggest buying the WC chassis. The stock chassis is a wet noodle and inconsistent in my opinion. making it narrower will make it worse. The WC chassis is superior aside from being narrower. I got mine from TQ and it was only like $56. Well worth it...

Try Bodiesbybean.com or his handle on here is dodgeboy. He paints very clean looking bodies at a good price.
