So, my sons really into RC's and found a Slash and Losi Ten-Scte 4x4 and they came with a TON of spare parts, tools, and even a tool box for everything. So I jumped on the opportunity to buy them.

When I got the trucks and everything home I immediately tore into both trucks to see what i got.

The Losi was pretty much stock except for a different set of wheels and tires. (I'm planning on selling that at some point, seems like no one wants it locally)

The Slash, it came with a bunch of RPM and Integy parts, as well as a Velineon Brushless setup, and a newly painted Raptor body (which looked horrible).

I ended up swapping the front and rear ends with my Stampede to make the Slash a bit wider and to make it look right with the Stampede wheels and tires. Also put in my old brushed ESC and crap Titan motor in it because i think the brushless was too fast for my 5year old to start out on. Also took the Raptor body and painted the outside of it with Plastidip and Rustoleum Fluorescent Orange. It turns out the orange has acetone and some other stuff that is used to clean up plastidip, go figure.

I plan on getting a 25-35turn brushed motor so it has more torque but doesn't go as fast. The truck has no power when running in training mode.

Here's how it looks now.

I painted it like that. The body was originally red and blue which looked horrible, they didn't prep it right. And the reason it looks like that is because the orange paint reacted with the plastidip. My son wanted it black and orange. Painting the outside of the body was cheaper than ordering a new body and lexan safe paint. Once he gets more experience driving the truck ill order him a new body. It didn't seem like a good idea to buy a new body for him to learn with.

BTW, the plastidip was perfectly fine painted over the lexan, so that's not the reason it looks like that.

I'm glad you said what I was thinking. It's unfortunate they didn't read the post but only looked at the picture and then commented, thinking they knew what they were commenting on.

My son loves righting my truck when it flips upside down. He'll be getting this one. next weekend for his birthday. He LOVES bright orange, and black. The next body will probably be a beetle or something else with an older body style, he loves seeing classic trucks at the drag strip or customized on TV.
