I'm missing a few small parts so I had nothing else to do than... do a painting It's just a trial. I used one of the used body that came with the 12R5.2 and here is how it came out

used body, before:


after:


have you ever seen a matte pink pan car? here it is .. Cost: 1$ I can make three bodies with ease with one rattle can . I used a paint made for the roads markings and it helds up great on lexan. I had already tried it in offroad in rain/mud with no problem. Pink isn't the favourite colour of many drivers, but I love it!
Can you give more info about the brand etc of the paint? Where to buy or even a pic of the can? Looks great.

thanks! it's a cheap paint used to mark roads but I don't have the cans anymore, sorry

it's this type of paint, hope it helps



Here are three interesting vids that someone suggested on another thread, helped me a lot for the diffs:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq00eXAkwOo

we will race for the first time this week end in France having absolutely no experience

as usual it will be the adventure but we will see how it goes, here is the track



I'll share pics and vids

the funny thing is that we'll be racing in the 1/10 WGT class because we have no french licence, but it's just for fun!

it was the 2nd time I drove onroad and the 1st one for my girlfriend and it all went well
