From what I have read they have neutral timing so I wired one forward and one reverse. That is the reason I chose them over other 550 motors. I have only tested it for a few minutes with a stick chassis before and the motors seemed to run at the same speed.

How did you rotate the rotation of one of the Titan motor? (I think they have advanced timing... ?)

I always thought the Titans have advanced timing.. ha!

Anyway, if you think they are neutral, that's good news.. They will be good replacement for the Clod!!!

I am pretty sure that they are neutral, but please let me know if I am incorrect. The only thing that sucks about them is that there is clearance issues with the stock clod chassis (they rub against the suspension links) with an aftermarket chassis they have plenty of clearance.

I recently got a vintage Clod Buster NIP off of ebay. The box isn't in perfect condition, but it still has the plastic wrap on it. All that is wrong with the box is a couple of dented corners. I was thinking about building it and making it a shelfer, but now I'm thinking that maybe I should just leave it in the original packaging. What do you guys think? I don't think I would sell it either way, and it would be cool to have it in mint condition as a shelfer, but if I'm going to lose a lot of its value by opening it and assembling it maybe I shouldn't.

I would leave it in the original packaging with the plastic. Things like that will go for crazy amounts of money down the road. Look on eBay, any of those older tamiya kits new in packaging for a lot of $$. Anyways you can get a pretty cheap clod runner off ebay to either use or clean up for a shelf display.

Well, maybe I will leave it in the box then. I got, what I think, is a great deal on it. I only paid $250 for it!! I think it is either a first or second year model too. I'll have to look at the box and see what year is on it.

I was just browsing ebay and noticed a Clodbuster Bullhead(Semi-Truck Body). I've never seen or heard of one of these before, but they seem to be quite expensive. Is this a super rare version of the Clod or what? If it is something really rare it may be something I'm interested in buying NIP to have setting alongside my NIP Clod.[>:]

In regards to the Bullhead, I just checked the completed auctions on eBay and the two on there went for $450 and $360, both were still NIB, so I would say that they are pretty rare. The only difference between them and the clod that I can see are the chrome parts, different body, and red chassis.

Its only rare now because it didn't have quite the following the Clodbuster had so there are few examples out there.

I would rather have it NIP than to modify a Clod to be a clone of a Bullhead. I'm not a big fan of clones, even though they're technically the same, they're still not the real thing to me. I think cloning something is like cheating. Do you think these are something that will increase in value quite a bit over the coming years?

Wow, nice score on the Clod. Was it stock? I think I probably will end up getting a Bullhead in the next several months just to have one. The only differences are cosmetic, right?

yes cosmtic, the bullhead had the different body, red chassis, the yellow f parts (bumpers, shocks, etc) and chrome c parts (suspension arms, servo bracets)

f you want to go mad the bullhead has the same chassis brace as the superclod and the power/economy switch was also the same as the superclod. (original was flush fitting)

They will probably increase in value but only if you keep it sealed in the box.

Does anbody have any experience with the ESP Clodzilla 2 sport conversion kit? I would like to make my Clod a little more capable for bashing and crawling purposes. I'm not looking for a dedicated crawler by any means, but I would like to get a decent amount of flex so I can go over most obstacles that may be in my path. I think I've heard people saying that the Clodzilla 2 kit is their favorite in other posts, but I'm not sure. It looks like a nice kit that would make it more capable and tougher, but I want other opinions. I can get it for $90 + shipping right now. Is that a good deal?

I use mine for bashing purpose only...and for maximum fun with minimum cost, I just let the stock motors on mine, using with a EVX-2 waterproof ESC and one 5000 mAh LiPo 3S...I drive it in the rain, mud, snow...you can't do that with brushless...yet

Was just wondering because I went through a set of stock motors with the 11.1 volt battery. They didn't last long at all.
