Vaterra RC Car Bodies

Vaterra has been making vehicles for a couple of years now. As much as we do not stock Vaterra vehicles you bet your bottom dollar that we have their wheels and bodies in stock. Many people ask us why we don’t have certain products and I usually respond with “there are other products out there offering better value”… now not everyone likes that answer but it’s the honest answer.

You ask anyone with a VTR100 {Vaterra’s on road platform} what they like best about their car and the answer is “I love the way it looks”  and we do too. I have noticed many trends in the market but none have been as predominant as flashy aesthetics. Let’s face it, the prettier the box and the prettier the car the quicker it sells. Now those of you who know us well, know that we are shop based on function first. That being said all of us at Chris’s House gets to pick and choose what we think is best for our customers. So what do we do when we see gorgeous bodies on cars we might not have room for? We order the bodies of course.

Chris’s House stocks all the available Vaterra prepainted and clear bodies that we can get our hands on. I recently painted a 2015 Mustang body for a new customer of ours and low and behold it fit near perfect on his Redcat Lightning Nitro car. I didn’t even have to drill new body holes :] . The body fit and finish is great not to mention the bodies are precut which saves a ton of time in the finishing department. The cool thing that Vaterra has really started to do is give other body manufactures a bigger run for their money by producing readily available beautifully casted bodies. Decal quality could be better as the decal adhesive is very light duty and the graphics are slightly cheesy but the overall porduct is stellar. So next time you are thinking of the big 3 {HPI, Parma and Pro Line} remember to ask to see some Vaterra bodies so you can pick amongst the best
