Create forum for bodies and painting
#1
I would like to suggest a dedicated forum for drift bodies and painting techniques. Considering that the esthetic is important to drifters, I don't see a lot of information regarding these topics!

Thank you.

Yes I see guides on the topic, but no real specific forum for discussion... Unless I completely missed something... But I did look.

You can find the RC Drift body forum here -> http://forum.driftmission.com/Forum-rc-drift-bodies

I see what you are saying about tips, we will consider creating a "Tips N Tricks" forum in the future.

Just to clarify, "Painting and Airbrushing" would be a perfect category. There are so many great looking bodies, and any information I could find on how it was done and painting techniques / procedures / tools were scattered everywhere. I know I'd like to share my experiences with my first diy project but there are no forums that feel like the right place to post. I'm sure many would benefit from the info.

Thanks.

Have you looked at the Work in Progress forum? http://forum.driftmission.com/Forum-work-in-progress

Yes I did peruse that forum as well, but found little info regarding the paints, tools, and techniques used to achieve the "then I painted the body" results. There are a couple of Airbrushing forums on the net that do have some information specific to painting RC bodies, but that forces me to use another forum, and I find more info there regarding boat hulls and helicopter shells than Drift Car bodies. And those forums don't see much in terms of traffic. 1 or 2 posts every 3 weeks. Driftmission is my go-to in chassis reviews, mods, hop-ups, electrical, and tuning, except when it comes to Airbrushing bodies. Not so easy to find specific info on paints and such. I just found it surprising that there wasn't already such a forum here.

Gotcha! I will look at adding it soon :) Just want to gather some resources to get it started!
