    No worry, I just thought maybe you didn't think that would work for the Clod..

    Yeah, give me a minute.

    I'm not at home, but I took this from a higher resolution source image, I'll take a real closeup when I get home.
    Thanks!

    Ha, right! Unfortunately, to me, building it is 1/2 of the fun (or more!) so sorry man, you are never gonna be building kits for LB... hee hee..

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    Damn.. But a collaboration would be a good idea. As in one buys to kit, or splits the costs, and one builds part and the other builds the other and at the same time one buys a lot of hop ups, and so does the other!

    Yes, run-on sentence - but I don't care!

    TEX, did you glue your tires on your Clod?!

    Tamiya actually says don't glue the tires on the TXT (to spare the drivetrain a little bit..).. funny.. they should use a slipper clutch or something.. instead of telling people not to glue the tires..

    I am gluing mine for sure! LOL!! After the foam shows up!

    Yes I did, but they are tight fitting tires. Take a lot of pressure to get them off the rim. They do slip in the rim though if not glued. I saw that when I put the foam in.

    Nice.. got a job lined up yet?!

    Why do a MBA part-time?! Just work for a few years and go to one of the top school full-time.. it would probably make more impact for your career..

    But who knows.. majority of the wealthy people got there not through degree / education anyway.. ha!

    Post some pics of your TXT when you got a chance!!

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    Nope none lined up/confirmed yet. I've sent out tons of applications though. Hopefully one will get back to me.

    But here's the TXT. All done. Bone stock though. Will progressively mod this till I'm happy with it. Need to start off with some tire foams though... Hmmm either that or skip it totally and get those nice MOABs (albeit $$$$ .)

    The TXT-1 is longer than the clod though. The TXT's body doesn't allow enough clearance for the tires to move though. The body was rubbing against the tires a few times... Hmmm. I guess it needs trimming. I'm happy with the articulation though...

    Probably gonna do that with the clear body (and paint it! )

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    Very nice.

    ONLY complaint I have towards Tamiya is they should have put in better shocks. I mean, for 360, why not throw in some shocks with at least one piece of aluminum on it?

    Thanks!

    I don't mind the shocks too much. What I mind is that they should have included full Ball Bearings!

    Argh, I'll do that next month (budget restrictions this time - don't have 4WS yet coz I need a servo regulator and another MG servo.)

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    It comes with some, but most of it is metal bearings (still better than the clod buster's plastic bearings I guess.)

    But its been fun so far... Can't wait to try it out tomorrow!

    It does have pretty noticeable body roll on acceleration though.

    I can not believe you put it together without full ballbearings... [:@]

    I mean, you need to take the whole things apart!!

    With the SuperDuty XR, I am counting on the 3A BEC can power the dual 1/4th scale servos.. LOL!! We will see!
