Default custom bodies

I saw these bodies on some japanese site and need help for translation. these look like replicas of pro drivers. I'm wondering what the price is.

$90 wow... thanks for the prices, i could get alot better ones with better artistic schemes for about the price of a clear one. I was hoping they would be about $50 i only like the paint scheme of the stratus ones.

if u paint bodies, you'll understand. lets say around 20-25 bucks for a body, paints around 15 bucks, masking 5, hours spent creating the design and painting. if my calculations are right, the labor is only 5 bucks. have u ever airbrushed a body before?

no, i was actually considering buying an airbrush , but not just for rc though. I'm really interested in art, and i like the design on the stratus bodies, but once i looked at it again i noticed it was all repitition. And i know a guy who's best freind paints bodies, and i could always get deals from him.
