The colors look fine in your photo. Is there a recommended PSI range to be used? If someone happens to want to thin it, what is recommended to be used?  Water, alcohol, an airbrush medium, some other liquid? Is heat setting recommended between coats?. Can this paint be used on hardbodies, too?

With a .5mm tip 45 psi will work; anything with a smaller tip will require a reducer or thinner most likely. Heat setting will speed up the process but isn't required.

Yes, of course it can be used on hardbodies. A clear coat is recommended.

I just wanted to clarify a bit of misinformation going around about our new Racer's Choice paint line...

 

It is not "repackaged" paint. It is manufactured just for RTR, with a custom formula. Yes, it looks the same as Createx, however it is blended differently, mainly to promote better adhesion on Lexan.

 

We have 15 different colors available now, if you have any suggestions for colors you would like to see added, let us know!
