i am hopeing to maybe get an airbrush and start aibrushing bodies, but if not ill take a trip to the lhs. i would also like to thank Tom F for his help with the body. i will also be most likely running these rims- http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXSCG9&P=7 and tthese tires- http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXGG35&P=7 . -Wes

i tested it out with my buddy waynes foams and i found out its a 3mm offset front and a 6mm offset rear. anyway i tested it and it did pretty good. its got tons of power and it slid i little bit but once i get some rally tires and use it outside it wont slide anymore. -Wes
