RC Hard Shell Painting Tutorial – PT 1- How-to Paint & Rust Hole Modification

I have never attempted a paint tutorial in this DEPTH before, and I have been asked several times to produce this type of video. While working on the RC4WD Trail Finder 2, I figured this was a perfect opportunity to sit and attempt it for all the RC Hobbyests that need some help or direction in painting their RC Hard Shell moulds! Some of these techniques are usable with lexan bodies and others as well!

AWESOME! This is MEDiC’s Personal Choice MONSTER TRUCK for the 2012 RC ADVENTURES Season! The Electric Savage Flux HP from HPI Racing is a 1/8 Scale “Bashing/Racing” MONSTER Truck. Its tough design and rugged frame have been impressing me ever since I have seen them cruising the bashing fields in 2011. I must wait NO LONGER.. and I have unleashed the POWER!

In this film, I test out the 6S Lipo Battery capability and run 24 VOLTS to the HPI / Castle “BLUR” ESC and “TORK” 2200kV Brushless motor. I try this both ON and OFF ROAD to put the Hype to the test.. IT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT! Everything from INSANE Speed.. Standing Backflips, KILLER SUSPENSION and MONSTER POWER .. what more could I ask for!

Crawler Teds BERG.. CUSTOM Crawler…

From the infamous Crawler Teds Garage.. the Boss Man himself lets loose with a Camera. Ted films his CUSTOM BUILT Berg 2.2 MOA Rock Crawler up close and in detail. Listen to the Canadian King Of Crawling as he reverse-engineers his own RC’s.. It’s unlike anything you have ever seen from Ted before. It is unusual to see the God-father to viewers on this level..

We all thank you Ted.. for this inside look look of your EPiC Comp Crawler!!
