Default Hot Bodies Mazda 6 Bodyshell Help

Hi,
I was wondering if the Hot Bodies Mazda 6 Bodyshell came with the flame stickers as shown in the photos, or if that was just for show . I just can't be bothered to paint them on myself , as it is difficult and it is winter, which isn't the best weather for painting. I was also wondering how good the body is, in terms of speed and handling? (This is a 190mm body, BTW)
Here is a link:

If you can, please help.
Thanks.

It doesn't come painted.

I believe hot bodies used to sell a painted version that was included in the cyclone s rtr kit but I've not seen it for sale for years.

East coast bodies do a semi painted Mazda 6 which is ok. You just paint a backing colour.

oh I know it doesn't come painted, I just don't want to paint flames. Too difficult and painting takes enough time as it is, as it is winter.
Does the body come with any flame stickers?

It does.

I had the pink one they do and it's very similar to the protoform version on shape. I sprayed mine two colors and I thought it looked pretty good.

yes, that does look awesome. I was thinking of getting the pink flames, but I was thinking of using pink in exchange for one of the colours. I will probably use pink and black. Do these bodies come with any decals? or do you have to use your own? I know it won't come with the novak stickers etc... as they are obviously supplied with some of the electronics in your rc, but it would be nice if they supplied a few east coast stickers and/or hot bodies stickers...

It comes with the headlight stickers and all of the grills as well as a few east coast logos.

Here's someone else's painted pink and white:
