    Thanks for the link Woodie! I wonder how long it would take to transfer everything over to a new chassis.

    I agree I will stick with the stock purple as well. Cant see forking out a additional 160 bones when the stocker is perfect the way it is.

    I have a pretty cool color scheme in mind to go with it though. I have a friend who does professional custom airbrushing.

    Ya I have seen some pretty nice ones in the last year with the purple chassis some looked great some not so great.I need a body done too as soon as I can choose a scheme.
    Evertime I think I have it somebody post something similar and its back to the drawing board lol.Right now the purple parts are polished and the body is stock for now until I come up with something.

    I guess If I went with anything it would be the black one. $160 though.... Man I could use that on some other needed things.
