    Which is the better R/C truck

    Savage or T-Maxx, just depends on what your preference is. I have a Savage SS and would not go any other way now. Just an opinion.

    If you did want to bond it using adhesive, 3M makes something. It's called Automix, (Part #8115) used for bonding steel, aluminum, SMC, and FRP (traditional fiberglass). Mainly used by OEM, and works great for roof panels, door skins, and quarter panels. -JJ

    Aircraft Remover. Klean-Strip makes it, part #AR-343. They also make a low odor version which doesn't work nearly as well. That part # is AR-777. These are available at your local paint jobber shop. All and all it's your best bet. The price at my store for a gallon of AR-343 is $25.99 with tax...
