    I couldn't find an aftermarket body that I liked and I thought would fit well on the Talion so I purchased a clear stock. I am happy I did, I really love the talion body. One of the best Truggy bodies I've seen.

    Now on to the good stuff. It was my first paint job outside of peeling stickers and spraying the stock body down with truckbed liner to make it last a little Longer.... IMAG0147.jpg IMAG0146.jpg IMAG0145.jpg

    Those wheels must be great on hard surfaces, and they give the car a nice look together with the custom body!

    @BigSplit VERY nice man. The checkered effect that fades to nothing looks great.

    It's funny how we paint them so nice and then trash and bash them! Once we get the first scratch,it is on!

    I have to say your paint job inspired mine.

    I kept upping the pinion. I was bashing with a 21t pinion and never checked the temps. The stock esc burst into a ball of flames

    Armma already replaced everything; all electronics, melted plastics, center diff, both a clear stock body & new prepainted stock body and sent me some duratrax posse truggy tires/wheels. It took some time and me bugging them but they definitely took care of me.

    Really really good! Shoutout to Arrma! they hooked you up with multiple parts, nice!

    Not long ago I had an issue with my Losi Ten Rally-X, i bought a programming card for my dynamite esc and tried to connect them together. It figured out but i wasnt able to onnect my esc to my pc....that i can update the esc. On the prog box it always said update firmware...

    I had alot of email contact with horizon hobby germany, but they cant help me and i have to wait more than a week for a single response of them...at first they tried to sell me smth, after that they don't understand my problem, so i have done a video to make it clear what my problem is and after i send them the link to the video, i never heard again nothing from them........
    so i asked horizon hobby Us. They understood my problem and answered very fast, but unfortunately they cant help me with my problem, so i sold the ten rally x.

    For me it is clear that i will never buy a horizon hobby product again.
