I send mine to Larry Genova, who does some of the pro's bodies (i.e. maifield) and does basically all of Jconcepts prototype bodies that you see released on their web site. He's based out of florida. He's also a Jconcepts dealer, so if you want a jconcepts body, he will send it to you directly rather than you buy it, have it shipped to him, then send it back to you painted. http://www.kustomrcgraphics.net/

There's a ton of different paint schemes he has listed.

He's not cheap, but you're essentially getting a professional paint job. I may not be fast, but I'll look fast! haha.

Duck, wow, you're selling your 4wd buggy, too? hmm, maybe it's time to look at team associated stock and buy some shares. lol.

There is a guy in Enfield that paints some.

Just got an airbrush so I'm going to give it a whirl. Will let you know how it turns out.

come on joe, join us in b5 nation! will be an awesome car indoors and outdoors! or, if you only want to run it indoors, you can can get a second car just for outdoors, given it's low price point (2 b5's = price of one kyosho).

While I couldn't honestly tell someone to go from a 4.1 to a 4.2 I can, with a clear conscience, tell people to go from a 4.2 to 5, it's worth the price IMO. The car just performs better in all aspects.

Almost done with my B5. Electronics all installed and working on the body/wing now. Should be done either tonight or tomorrow.

Joe B, get a B5. Then we can call you Joe B5. I hold my 4.1 in reverence, but even I have to admit it is time to get with the times.

Next question is what to do about my T4.1. Maybe I just need to keep tuning it and, although I'm getting closer with it, it is a royal pain in the butt.

B5 fever.... Thankfully Saturday testing found a nice setup that hopefully keeps me up on all these Things popping up.

2wd Buggy @ RCHR = THE CLASS
