    Unfortunately, Krylon doesn't work well on r/c car bodies. It will likely flake off after a bit of running. If it looks like it'll come off 100%, you can re-paint it with the correct paint from a hobby shop (Such as the Pactra spray cans) which are formulated for r/c bodies and won't flake off like the Krylon does.

    I have heard of a few cases though where krylon or other paint has been claimed to work just fine, but my personal experience as well as anything I've seen first-hand says that it's not going to last too long.

    I've heard of people using DOT 3 brake fluid to get the paint off. Apparently it eats the paint away really well. I haven't tried it and you may want to wait for more replies to confirm this, but if I was desperate it'd be about the first thing I'd try.
