Does anybody know if there is a co. that makes wax for RC bodys, and if not is there anything else I can use, and since the tires on RC'S are made out of real rubber shoun't I be able to use the tire wax that I use on my Ford?

I'm not sure if any R/C companys right off hand that make any. I'm pretty sure there are some that do though. But what works really well is STP car wax. It comes in a tan bottle and is pretty good stuff.

Treatment Products Ltd. makes a line of products called "The Final Detail;" one is a spray on Lexan polish that adds a nice gloss, they also have a model paste wax that comes in a 1oz. container. Both work well on RC stuff- just be careful around your decals. http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/cool.gif

Rustler - If you want your tires to look brand new, clean them well with soap and water, then spray them down with WD-40 once they're dry. It makes the tires look like they just came out of the package.

Bolink makes a lexan car wax called 50MPH+,
They sell it in a kit with a cloth and a small bottle of rubbing compound to polish out small scratches.
It works pretty good but wont take off the really heavy battle scars.
