Make your R/C body stronger

3/14/2013 | 3 Comments | posted by Melissa & Jeremy Truxillo

Here is a little tip on how to stop your R/C bodies from cracking or breaking. You can also use this method to repair a cracked body. If you bash, you can do the whole body if you’d like. If you race, you will probably only want to do certain sections to save weight.

 First you will need Shoe goo which we have at Big Boy Toys and Hobbies. It sells for $6.99. Second you will need dry wall tape found at any big box hardware store, I like the thin kind.

Step 1 -Take your body and place some dry wall tape where you would like to make the body stronger.

Step 2 - Take the Shoe goo and you finger and rub it over the dry wall tape. When you are happy about the way it looks, let it dry.

Now you are ready to bash/race with a much stronger body. The shoe goo will come off your hand after in dries in a few minutes.
