    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    The thing is, the steering problem is not all about the torque of the servo.. you can have something that has 300 oz-in of torque, and it still won't steer properly..

    You will see when you try it out... have fun!! Can't beat a Clod!!

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    Who makes a kit?

    I remember the built in servo saver was a bit sloppy but it saved my servos butt a few times.

    Any pics?

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    What exactly is the steering issue, I mean I know it doesn't work as well as on the axle, but does it turn slow or sluggish, or just not turn the full amount lock to lock or what? I want to try that crawford steering linkage kit in addition to a high torque servo with mine, someone on here was using it, I wish they would give us an update on how they liked it lol.

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    The servo saver is the first issue...the other is that it lacks strong tracking and my rear steering seemed more touchy/sensitive then the front. Also...having less in the linkages is also a big help since they tend to flex under load especially in low speeds when it has to move the tire more with friction. Like turing your wheels on a full size car at a standstill vs actually moving forward.

    That single s148 with plastic gears was so taxed it wasn't funny. I too will at least attempt to leave stock alone with a good MG.

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    I think I talked about this before (but not like people actually read what I post anyway, so I will try again ) and of course, it is only one man's opinion.. many people are happy w/ their steering, so if you are happy with it, don't change a thing!

    The problem I have w/ Clod's steering is that one servo is located in the center, with connecting rods going to the front and rear of the axles, and turn the wheels through a couple of steering cranks..

    Even when you have a strong servo, you will see that the servo is pushing the steering crank, and instead of transmitting all the torque to the crank, it pull / push up and down the suspension instead.. and this is just something very difficult to eliminate unless the servo is located on the axle..

    But like I said, don't change a thing if you are happy w/ the stock steering setup!! It will still turn your Clod!!

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    i was hoping mine would be a classic since its been in the box for over a year [:-] but someones pushing me (literally ) to build it. hint hint.... lol j/k
    i finally opened mine and i must say the shocks are weak , for the money they could of gotten some cheap oil filled shocks [:@] . i also was looking at the wheel hubs ,are they 12mm ??? wow i made some 14mm adapters already to run my either aftershock tires or mgt tires, or even the jumbo kongs . hmmmm, naa too heavy.
    and no its not done yet before i play with it i think i will see if i can get some decent shocks for it , the lst2 shocks are not posible way to close to the tire and axle [&o]
    well since it looks like its going to be a long winter this will be a winter project for sure.
    and no it still has a msc [:@] it may be time for the fxr esc when i have more funds

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    Anyone have ideas on a clod body? I assume Jeep/'73 Bronco/T-Maxx and E-Maxx stuff should be good to go right? The body on it is a jeep rubicon but a gross color. Any 1/8th scale should work as well like the Savage right?

    I would love to throw some small scale goodies in the tailgate for fun and out of the way of the occassional roll over. No roll bars or engine blowers...they will be toast in 3 seconds like midnight pumpkins nlight bar haha.

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    i was just looking at tower for body ideas, the kit comes with a 1/8 scale looking body and may go with the old chevy 1950 body to match the pumkin
    edit: 1/10 scale is iffy, it measures the same size as the thunderquake body and that thing is huge[:@] http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBHZ8&P=7

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    In all honesty the body does look pretty nice that I have. I could dye the blue parts black and I can either dye the shocks or replace them with purple annodized shocks...

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    Those look pretty cool, but they're way to small for a Clod.

    Does anyone know if it will hurt if I run two different motors of the same turn together in a Clod? I've got one Epic 19T right now and the other is on back order. My buddy has an Arcornite 19T, and I was wondering, since they're both Trinity motors, if they might work together okay just to run one pack through and see approximately how fast my Clod will be when I get my other Epic.

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    I think that if the timing can be set to zero you should be good to go but the whole reverse rotation thing may be an issue.

    RE: Super Clod Buster Build-up Thread

    I know as long as I set the reverse rotating motor to zero I'm good, but I'm not sure if running two different motors(names not turns) would be bad. Also, I was thinking that when I get my second Epic I should be able to retard the timing on the reverse rotation motor to like 10-20* and advance the timing on the forward rotating motor to about 10-20* and that should work for more power out of my motors right? Seems like it would work awesome, but I've never heard any mention of it. Anyone ever try this, or even know if it would work? I'm not an electrical engineer, but I thought about it for a while and looked over some motor guts and it seems to me like a novel idea.
