Those tires are awesome. I hope they start making all the 1:1 tires in 1.9. I think the paint would be better if it was like showing silver like with some rust thrown in. Looks like it got a bit of air. Whats the new and old spring set up?

the body was primed before the olive drab was painted but the primer is whats coming off.

the old spring set up was the stock set up.

the new set up is the chino mod up front and the main leaf and the shortest leaf under that.

same spring set up on the rear.

im not 100% happy with it so far so ill change it some more.

Cool pics, your hl looks nice, i went back to 1.9's on hpi stock car wheels and the mudslingers , i took of the msd 2.2 beadlocks with goelanders, i think it looks much better on 1.9 now, i did remove the tranny plate since lost the extra clerance and that has helped a lot

That's what my backyard needs a test course

Saw the 1.9 mudslinger in action a couple of weeks ago
and I was very impressed lots of grip and they to where on a heavy scaler. I'm waiting on the 2.2 coming soon

next time scuff the body with 320 or 400 grit, then use fusion paint. works great and VERY durable, definatly wont flake off like that
