Default What one color goes with white?

Hey guys, i just ordered a body for my 8th scale buggy. Now i'm in the market for some paint. As the title says, what color goes with white? My buggy basically has white dish wheels and a white wing. So basically it's white in the exterior. I want a color that stands out with white. I don't want any lightnings or flames, just one primary color. Any ideas? Thanks, Pictures will be appreciated.

I already have a black body, and it doesn't really good to me. It's too common.

Metallic Blue would look awesome

Orange? I've never seen a rc with orange and white. Got a picture?

you can get an idea of what it would look like. Take an empty pop bottle cut it open and spray it orange and hold it up next to your white rims.

Thanks for the pictures. I change about my idea of not having flames, so i think i'm going to be getting Flore Orange with black flames. Is that ok or do you guys recommend something else other than flames?

Thanks for the reply. I like orange but i'm not used to it. I don't see it very often, so i'm kinda leaning towards metallic blue.


Dave, what color did you use here? It looks amazing!
