The bearings make such a big difference when they are fitted all round, ah i see sounds fun . so there not something I can buy from a shop? The mustang shell is finished ready to be masked and painted took a few pics but I'm still drying it off.. The light mark on the bonnet to the left is a big scratch it looks like the previous owner tried sanding off the paint or used acetone of some kind but the rest is simply condensation from where I was holding it to dry it off as I washed it with soapy warm water to get all the chemicals off. I can still see a few smears of white paint on the sides of the car (I think)….not sure if its paint or if its the marks from the decals it had on when I got it because the marks are in the exact same shape and place as the decals..Might be the sticky side of the decal left so ill give the outside a scrub and wash down in the morning before I start masking off the windows ready to spray.

My experience with the spray has been 100times better than the Break Fluid though..No cloudy marks no brittle areas from excessive scrubbing and no paint left in the corners etc.

The trucks are awesome but there not really cheap a basic kit without radio gear is around 250-300 then there are lights and sounds that can be added you need a minimum of 2 channel radio 2 servos and a esc then there are trailers
that pink truck with its lights and sounds and it's pink trailer and the pink working radio controlled boat is about 2500
she has a trailer that has a working n gauge train set on the back that with the truck is worth about 5000

With the trucks you have to build everything up
it has a 6 speed gearbox (3 forward and 3 backward )
but you don't really use 2nd and 3rd

think I need to get saving lol..was going to get a ps4 but I might keep the money and put it towards a truck..got a ps3 360 and one and they just gather dust on the side lol at least if I saved the money and put it towards a truck its something I'd actually spend time on ..they sound complex to build though but I can't turn down a challenge..I remember when I was younger I went to a truck show up north and they had remote control trucks there with all the sounds (horns, engine noises etc) and lights with trailers and other accessories, they was huge though. They had basic kits there in the little shop things (trailers with extended roofs pretty much) and they was pretty pricey I just assumed the prices were high because they was on sale at a truck show but I guess not

I had a little spin about inside but the tires kept flying off everytime I turned the car or got to excited with the throttle lol so I've had to glue them on I really didn't want to because of other wheels I have on back order but it isn't super strong super glue so hopefully it will hold but not be to hard to get off when I want to swap over the tires. I might get a duplicate set of wheels but get 4mm off set they are 9 and stick out crazy on the rear of the car. The hex adapters are perfect to glad I got the ones that had the screw to tighten them to the axles otherwise they would have been loose and fallen off

Got a knife set and lexan scissors too (along with some other bits and bobs and tools, as I was using two sets of grips up until now lol) so I had a little go at cutting with them. That's why the headlights and front grill are missing from the scooby shell lol, going to get some mesh and fill in the gaps. I have decided on one shelf shell still not sure on what to get for driving outside (carefully) yet though. I have 4 basher shells as of now so it's not a huge rush to decide on one for outside. I'm going with a bugatti veyron shell for the shelf with a custom paint job (hopefully my masking skills will allow me to keep it tidy) and a set of 6mm offset 7spoke wheels that match the colour scheme. Still torn between the escort and Capri shells for outside amongst a few others I've got a bunch of paint already I went into a model shop and they had a full shelf of sale sprays for rc car shells so I took advantage and went a bit mad

Are all msc the same? If so I have two spare from the bycmo the original and then the replacement I got (turned out the original was fine the diff was gone) the price is a bit high especially for them tiny cans :O now I see why people just use generic "any purpose spray"
