I honestley dont know but as you pointed out it will get destroyed so regardless I think mit will have to come off.I was going to get the shell painted buy evilair but with the pipe I think it just sits way to close to the shell and it would melt it so I might have a go with the airbrush I've had sitting around for a while.Does anyone know what psi a airbrush should run at.I would hate to pay to get the shell done and 2 or 3 races later it starts to melt just would'nt be worth it.

Around 20 - 40 psi.

Nice job on the car:thumb:

Nice work Billybob, i think the exhaust wrap is a good idea too. Personally i think spending a heap of money on a shell that will be used for off-road racing is totally overboard... mine was trashed after only two days at Luddenham.

Top work BB, looks the goods. If you want an easy body PM Zoomer for some vinyl masks (eg I did the JD thing, you could think of any number of designs), he is cheap and good quality and all I did was stick on the inside and spray Black over them :D They are still there, when they wear off I will spray white where they used to be. Cost me about $50 all up.

Gonna have to cut the pipe mate, should see the pipe i borrowed off THE FROG. Had a big hit on the side that cause my motor to break and the outlet when it lands from the jump, it was nearly flat.

Id rather cut a hole on a new shell than damage the pipe or the motor. Cut out the hole for the pipe before you paint and then just mask the hole so not to overspray the outside.

Thanks boys the pipe dose;nt actually touch the shell just sits a tad close for my liking hence the exhaust wrap.I'm going to cut the pipe just a little bit higher in to the side pods dont want it to bottom out and get a pipe full of crud.Does anyone know where I could buy some heatproof tape,looks like aluminium doct tape with a layer of some sort of heat resistent cloth.Tried american autos,supercheap,repco only place that had it was auto barn but $65 bucks a roll and I only need about 1 mt,was thinking maybe exhaust shop?

Billy,

Mate your as big a djr fan as me you have to paint 17 on both the greens tuff and tru blu bodies!!

Both your cars are 4x4's and mine are 2wd so we won't ever be in the same race anyway mate.

My car numbers are 17 and 18 in the timing system though, I can't remember what yours are as that's what the system will announce for places and results that's all ....
