Try a blow dryer to gently heat it up and I would imagine it should "buff right out" lol... good luck!

sounds logical...i'll give it a shot...still has the plastic film on the outside its painted on the inside ...but its pretty trashed ...already got my money back for it and they told me to keep the body...so i just wanna see if its possible to straighten it out somewhat

[attachment=3785][attachment=3784]  Thx wilkewhaq...did as you suggested, heated it up with a blow dryer then clamped together some wood to kinda hold its form somewhat.
I've seen drift cars with dents anyway  B) Heres a couple of pics
