I've taken a "break" from finishing my Trail King, as I'm finally working on a Rustler 4x4 project ("Project Predator") that I started planning 7-8 months ago...tho, I will get back to the Trail King in the (very?) near future. Good luck with yours...not that you need any 'luck'.

I think mine is a combo of both the body mounts and shock towers leaning with the majority of it caused by the shock towers.

Thanks! I can't wait to get it painted. Definitely going multi-colored. I'm thinking two tone.

Jato.... that body is a perfect fit for the TK. I canít wait to see your color scheme. Do you plan on painting the outside of the lexan?

Thank you!

I'm going to pay somebody to paint this one and it will definitely be shiny so no paint on the outside. Why do you ask?

Iíve been seeing more and more bodies painted on the outside lately. I believe they paint them silver or rust color on the inside and hit the outside with their final coat. The outside paint adds some depth and makes the body look more realistic. Either way it will look fantastic Iím certain!

Oh no. I don't plan on doing that. Painting on the outside of the Lexan gives it a matte finish.
