Did a bit of both on mine. Completely cut of the tears and trimmed the fronts.



Was in a bit of a rush and need to go back with some sandpaper to clean the fronts up.

Perfect break separation!



Needless to say, rather than running with one fender gone and one fender on... I cut the other one off.
One thing I like to do around areas like that is pickup some Shoe Goo and sticky drywall tape.

- Apply tape
- Paint over it with the Shoe Goo

Makes a body pretty well bullet proof.

hahaha.... ok think i may just trim a tiny bit off as im super noobish. im afraid to do to much. just dont really like the sound of the plastic rubbing. i dont feel like it hindered the performance really.. thanks again!

I use Duratrax lexan scissors. I have had the set for years and they work really well. I would assume any scissors would work but I prefer the angled pair personally.

I use a set of Kyosho KRF curved lexan cutting scissors that I've had for over 30 years. That's not a typo, I purchased them to cut out bodies for my Kyosho Ultima back in 1989. I just used them 2 nights ago to trim out the rear bumper on my Enduro Trailwalker. Once I decide on what size of tire to run I'll trim my fenders.
