Default Body Paint vs. Skins

Hi everyone,

I'm planning on getting a new body but I can't decide if I should get it painted or get stickers for it. What do you recommend?

TLR 8ight 2.0 EU-e / Tekin 2250kv / Tekin RX8 / Proline, AKA, Sweep / Savox

a paint job is original and l9ooks great but can chip peel or just burn off by the pipe area.. but i still prefer paint job

skinz, if applied properly, will last a vrey long time while addiing strength to the body itself

Get it painted. Last year I ran a painted body and never had it chip or crack always looked nice. Just make sure you find a really good artist and it will take much longer since they are usually custom made. The skinz are good since they stiffen up the body but weight becomes an issue.
