It will be great to see this thing come together, clod has always been one of my favorite Tamiya kits. I remember drooling over my buddy's dads.

Thanks, I plan to build up the kit as Tamiya would have it, MSC and Drive Mode option. You know, the true Tamiya way, like when I was a kid. Only the shocks and bearings will be updated during the build.

Then I will add mods, ESC and etc.

The usual suspects, interestingly in an old school matte finish. This is not like the newer, shiney Mabuchi's.

Quick comparison, Clod motor on the right. They sound different too.

MSC, usual Tamiya resistor, Drive Mode switch and misc wiring. Hmm, is that a Rx balloon? Close, it's a MSC balloon...old school.

Wow, Tamiya splurged and gives the Clod owners two large grease tubes and a standard switch lube.

I was JUST talking about his too, right LB?

My usual tradition, I assemble the tires/wheels first. Kinda big, eh?

Here's a reference shot for size. That's a 1/10 buggy in the background.
