I used some thin 3m tape on mine. I got a strip behind the K decals on the sides and a big piece behind the bosch grille. Painted it same as the box except the florescent roof!

Maybe they are having a hard time too and are showing off their best angles?

I was thinking of using Shoe Good instead of tape. Thoughts?

the battery rules i know most state the reedy or peak battery but tcs says this:
Any stick-pack style, hard round case type LiPO, NiCD, Ni-MH is permitted. so thus making these legal:

I found that the directions in the box were incorrect. Once you get the cab mounted to the base the front air dam is quite easy to cut out.

I had a few small extra "wings" that i couldnt figure out if they went behind the cab or in front of the cab. After about 20 minutes i figured out that the "wings" needed to be removed. After cutting them off it fit great.

My truck(not stickered up yet). The body was a real pain in the butt to paint. Wish Tamiya just went with a one piece design and made really long body posts.

I'll have to watch for the wings you mention.

I wish Tamiya would have done a 1-piece body as well. Or even 2 pieces. 4 pieces is just absolutely ridiculous!

Super long posts become way too flexible though.

You really do not want a body that's got the sharp inside corner like that, that's one peice.

I have had them. The body on my Outlaw Raider had that inside corner on the back... it tore there first. So did my sisters. So did every pickup body I got near that didn't have a long angled structure on the back.

Tamiya could have done a bit better putting deeper ribs inside... though that would have taken away from the scale appearance.

The bodies are very durable for what they are... And the long noses may be what is keeping these chassis from blowing up.

I did that to mine and it has held up really well. No double sided tape on my cab at all.

Can we get someone to fix the title of this thread? I've already asked the admin... I got no response.

Is there a history of rear wheels breaking cause of faulty parts or is it drivers error?

People have broken them. I wouldn’t say that it’s a problem. I’ve hit some crap pretty hard with my truck and all 4 wheels are holding together.
