We originally reviewed the BZ-222 in RTR form back in the June 2015 issue, and Basher has since refined the car with a selection of carbon fiber and aluminum upgrades that earn the machine its new “BZ-222 Pro” name.

Paint & Detail An RTR Interior [HOW TO]

More and more RTR vehicles are coming with scale interiors to increase their realism. Since the interiors are vacuum formed, molded-in details are generally soft.
