    Finishing the painting up on 34 ford pickup. First time painter

    I am not an Arrma owner but i hoping too. I do have an torment stock lots of fun

    maybe some tips for my next paint job or comments about this paint job. When I trimmed glue out some stuck to body went ahead and painted it is that gonna pose a problem.

    @joe kidd, I'm only 6months into hobby grade rc's, so please forgive this question. What is sticking out of the bed of your 34 ford?

    Do you prefer, nitro over electric rc's? I've seen the fuel online, $$$$$. Do you have to work three jobs, in order to keep fuel? :)
    Your 34, looks awesome! Good job!

    Actually I like my nitro but I believe I love my electric.fuel is bit pricey but me and friend by it by the gallon and split it so we end up with 2quarts a piece for about 7bucks each quart still kinda high but not to bad. Electric though just charge and go awesome! If you have nitro you better know how to work on them vibrate apart and had to upgrade to all aluminum parts plastic couldn't handle the speed love those monster stickers on that flat black

    Thanks!
    Yah, electric is pretty much plug in play. I've watched rc's on nitro videos, seem pretty fast and loud. (fast-n-loud gas monkey garage show) :D And expensive to maintain as well. Don't get me wrong tho, the whole rc hobby is expensive!!!! But, I love it!!!! Like the ole wifey says, there are whole lot of other bad things I could be spending the money on. And she's right, (did I just say, she's right?) Lol! Good clean fun! How close are you to getting an arrma rc? Have any of them peaked your interest any?
