Default Fast Crawler

Im not all that interested in crawling, but like the looks of them. Does anyone know if I can make a fast crawler (as fast as an emaxx) Also along with how, could you give me a platform (TXT-1 Clodbuster... ect.) that I should run this on. Thanks,
-Wes

you can make them fast just by adding different gearing. The problem is though, that they are very tipsy at fast speeds.

That is the exact reason I was posting & selling(my idea) my 'Trail Maxx'. It isn't cheap for the short on cash crowd, but my spooled, brushless, four shock Trail Maxx crawls well and scoots fast with wheelies in first and second. And over half hour run times. Not tippy crawling or going fast.
My P2 Maxx and Blazer SST are going to be sitting a lot... []

I would say TXT-1.
With the center tranny you can have one brushless motor for the speed you want.

hey where are you in VA im in centreville, and if you want a fast crawler im guessing your not gonna crawl with it so you could stiffen up the springs and shocks along with a swaybar and it would still look cool like a crawler but not have so much body roll in it.
