    this will be nothing fancy just a simple build .... I have a used kit roller on the way by mail . a savox
    SW0231MG servo and a Flysky ft3b coming for it .
    .
    I will post pics of what i get . this truck is for my 8 year old step daughter to drive and bash about .
    So it will most likely wind up pink . and it has to be ready before Christmas.

    my buddy is my paint guy . and he plans to try something He saw online ....Using dot4 brake fluid to remove the original paint .( im not 100% sure how well it will work ) but am willing to try . IF for some reason it doesn't go well I still have a honcho body. ... He does great on most things he paints. like this i built it he painted it . he covered the torn seat also . ( not perfect but great compared to before it was covered) ... he has done some outstanding stuff also but i do not have pics .

    .
    i used to do lots of model painting and rattle can graffiti ... but have lost my love for painting somewhere along the way . But i still love the mechanical aspect and mods .. on the little china quad I stretched the swinger 10" added new shock mounts to lower it 2" and merged the stock hubs with 250r hubs so it fits honda 4/110 wheels in the back . and made the custom header pipe then simply added the silencer . ( there is lots of leg room between the pipe and seat )

    The dot 4 is a fail on the stock plastic. But seems to work on home painted body's. It may just be Orange. I'm up to about 280.00 in this gift. A killer price for a drivable scx10. I all ready have a nimh and a 2s I can let her run under my supervision.

    You might possibly try this

    Not sure is it will take off stock paint but may be worth a try!!
    Even if you have to leave it orange there could be other ways to make it a little more girly!!! Im sure your Daughter will love it however you build it, Daddy/Daughter time is the main thing!!

    The pic not showing up on my smart phone. So what us this???
    Plan b is to use my buddy's stock green deadbolt body and paint the roll bar pink. And a couple other accents. The pink n green clashes in a good way. The pink and Orange us hideous.

    Tamiya item #87118 Polycarbonate cleaner, according to the video and the description it removes paint fairly easily.
    Google it.... put that in search and a video should pop up!!

    I used dot4 to remove the paint behind the light decals and it worked just fine. Will love to see how it comes out

    @Chase Billings Welcome to the forum and nice video ( awesome crawl spot)
    Start a new thread in the introduce your self section . and thanks
    .
    although this build is super basic.
    I did use white lithium grease in my axles and trans . vs the blue marine grease . It is much smoother and causes less friction in the drive train .
