I used to have a number of them - Clods, TLT's and others. I sold all of them for fullsize stuff. Now I only have a 1/6th Nylint. It can be expensive, but still a whole lot cheaper than fullsize. Looks cool, it is probably a lot better with the clod drivetrain.

yea, its good with the clods. but its not very scale with them though. but all the wieght is on the axles. I have a set of TXT axles i was going to run, they are beefier than the clods. I have already broke the axle tubes on the clod axles, but i have a set of alum tubes im going to swap out....


lothos, try putting in a lathe motor, and put a 8 or 9 tooth pinion gear on them

what exactly is a lathe motor? I have 17 turn doubles, 6 turn triples, 27 turn doubles, etc... in my box of tricks for all the electric rc's I have. Hell, i even have a 9 turn single I use as a race motor in my RS4. Now, couple any of them with maybe a 20+ tooth pinion and yeah maybe I could run slow enough, but the housings I have aren't big enough for such a large pinion. 12 I think is the limit on the Clod axles.

I had an XTM truck with a pretty cool cantilever suspension. It had a bigger nitro motor so it wasn't exactly a crawler. I got out of the RCs when my friend that got me into it passed away.

I will post a pic of it and my buggy when I get home.
