Bush Devil, sprayed in a lovely metallic blue years ago.

the only issue, the blue was for a hard body, not lexan, so it just flaked off! (PS not PC?)

anyhow, had a spare 1/2 white spray, so washed the inside and sprayed.

It is a runner (and well abused!) so not fussed on the look, the shell has been bent double many times! its an unusual look, but probably better than it being see through :)

other mods include a 90's stock modified motor, Ripmax No-Limit esc, fully ballraced, new gears & pinion (so smooth and quiet now!) and a M3 nut and bolt holding the upright in as the tamiya gubbins comes loose.

This is quite quick, and generally abused, it seems to stand up to a LOT without any damage.

it was a blackfoot lexan, thhe car came with none and it was advised, but you can see the cracks behind the doors, it needs a wheelie bar

With the white backing it looks like a hard shell with flaked paint
