Where did you get that chrome paint for plastic? Makes those suspension parts look just like Elcon

Seriously, though, how much time does one spend cleaning up these disc brake systems when detailing after a mud bath? I pull off my radio tray when cleaning. With disc brakes that gets a lot more complicated.

well with a car this good i will avoid MUD

but after a run in dirt ect ect, there is a clip on the caliper that u take off, and slide out out the pads, which allows u to clean any gunk that may have been caught up in them [8D]

mmm slight problem with the old jetpro....... with the lengthing set on the marder just before the chassis bottoms out the set will hit the pipe.

So the pipe is out, and will be replaced with an FG tune pipe b4 i damage it

now the FG pipe is on so theres no chance of the lengthing set hitting anything, also a rear end defelction limiter has been added, its now impossible for the chassis to bottom out
