Default Paint is on!

So I have all the holes in set for flush mount screws, the chassis parts painted and, the plastic parts soaking in Simple Green.

That actually didn't look too bad. I would've stuck with it but then, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Something must not have been right for you?

I would've lightly shot blasted to level the surface evenly before running it in a tumbler, last thing would be to polish it by hand (if high sheen is desired). Your paintjob came out good too?

Like sand blasted? Don't have one. That would be a big rock tumbler. Also don't have that at my house. All that work was by hand or with a Dremel. Paint came out okay. Not great but I just don't have time. The parts are still sitting in cleaner. Wifeie do list comes first. RC's last.

Default Rc10 slash?

Hi I new to Rc10 worlds cars/ buggy’s. Has anyone ever heard of or seen a Rc10 pan/chassis with slash suspension and a arms or similar custom upgrades? Curious as to some of the finer details like axle upgrades to accommodate the longer a arms and different hub assemblies. Think I have the steering figured out but am open to suggestions. Already has a 1/10 scale castle set up on 3s that is bonkers. Wanting to upgrade to a bigger wider aluminum running gear, hubs and steering
