Have someone ever cut the stock slash body so it would look cooler, a bit like a bajr body?
I am thinking of doing that but i dont want to mess up my body.
Someone pictures, tips or suggestions?

the stock slash body comes with a bunch of outlines which are in the cast for it, since the slayer (and now the nitro slash) used the same body. Maybe cut some of those holes out and see how it do?

Dont have any picture but i usually cut the flappy parts off the bodys as they wear mostly its the rear fender wells that end up breaking off and that we have to cut.

Oh that? Im sure you could. It'll never look right though, since the body wasn't designed with that in mind. It'll always look a bit... off. Probably better off grabbing a bajr-designed body.

Yea. My rear fenders are getting a bit floppy. They will prolly get cut off soon.
It is nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice.

Yep. I think my rear fenders will be getting that treatment soon. The shoo goo isnt really helping any more.

Does getting rid of the fenders help with the parachting effect?

when you do that to the front, every time you land on the lid it will crack more and more across the windshield. I had a friend that did it and he ended up trashing it with in a week of running.
