I am new to the crawler scene. I saw some links on ebay that were some sort of modified traxxas links. I have to look into it more, I just haven't seen much online for these Clods.

Maybe Evader can help me out...

Ya I can! U kidding? There's thousands of sites with crawler conversions and custom chassis etc. Do you want a crawler or an mt?

fist off www.clodparts.com has most parts for the clodbuster listed. And www.thecrawlerstore.com has the stick and the nn chassis which are both prize winning packages. Go to www.rccrawler.com and look in the clodbuster section and you will be amazed at what some people are running. http://www.crawfordperformanceengine...n/commerce.cgi this site has some cheap chassis that work good. The most popular setups lately are torsion stick chassis and tubers, but to get these you need to custom make one.

For MT I would go tuber or a clodzilla becuase they are designed for responsive suspension and jumping rather than crawling. I still prefur the look of a tuber though

For sure! I bet he has at least 10 high quality clods

The clodzillas are on ebay and if you can believe it, tower sells one! I would prefur the clodzilla three but that's just me... http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...ARCH=clodzilla

Where did you see the 4 LB?

No and if you do, not yet. It's got 7 days left. I hear the evx is the least reliable out of all the high power esc's. The super rooster, e-zilla esc, and super duty xr are the best.

Ya, I am watching it right now. I usually bid on stuff within the last minute.

OK, so this one is out. I din't know about the reliability issue and that is good to know. I will just get the Novak SD XR
