Default Revo Crawler

Hey all,
I got a second revo, so im looking to try and transfer it over to a crawler.
And yes, i did a search, and found one thread, but it wasnt very helpful. So im going to ask you guys, if i install the long travel rockers that came with the revo, do you think that will give it enough travel to make it over some good size rocks? Im just looking to make it into a truck that can crawl small stuff, nothing huge like with the TLT's. Im also thinking that i should upgrade the shocks? theyre inboard on the revo.
Another problem, the revo is pretty low to the ground, but it also has a very low COG, so it tends to stick to the road and the track.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

revo=probably one of the worse things to try to make a crawler with. For one thing, nitro is the worst for crawling. second, with the way the shocks are set up, its difficult to get a big amount of travel. Basically, its just not a crawler, but you can still run over some stuff with it. if you wanted to make an actual "crawler", you'd be better off getting a tlt or jugg or something like that.

Actually, the Revo has an insane amount of travel for an independant truck. The wheel travel isn't the problem, it's the nitro engine, low ground clearance and lo-pro tires that make it tough to crawl.

plus, independent suspension isn't the greatest for crawling. Solid axles are preferred.
