I'm not a big fan of the color scheme on that one, trchey, but other than that, I like it.

The paint job is nice but I'm curious, why do you have the left tires running the right direction and the right tires turning backwards? Seems to me like it would be a bit of a handfull under acceleration and hard braking with the difference in traction from one side to the other.

yeah, i wasnt thinking when i did that sadly, but since i mainly bash off road in gravel and stuff and never reach high speeds it isnt that big of deal, when on pavement it does pull to one side, if anyone has a way for me to unglue them i am listening

there is such a thing as CA remover

Or there are a bunch of methods involving baking or boiling. Do a search in thegenereal RC or MT forums.

Or you could just have the rear ones on the right way and the fronts wrong, so at least it wouldnt pull.

You can also soak the rim in Acetone. That will soften the glue up and let you remove the tire from the rim.
