Default 3-link Clod Crawler

Anyone seen this before? I came up with a very simple 3-link idea for clod axles, i just gotta hit Home depot up and ill be ready. Itll end up only costing me around $30 - $40 to complete the chassis. You dont think that being too light will hurt its performance at all, do ya?

Of course it won't hurt performance. It will only help, you want a light weight crawler.
3-Links are excellent setups if you set them up right.

Im gonna make some prototype links and see how far I can get. They're only about 12 inchs long, so the wheelbase is only gonna be about 14 inchs. Man.... the design is so simple its stupid.

I take that back, the wheelbase will be more like 15.5 inchs. Itll weighs practically nothing. However much 2 clod axles w/ tires (no foam), a 3000mah battery, 2 550 size motors, and a Super Rooster will be the total weight. So im just gonna make a guesstimate and say 3 lbs.

Ive made only 1 link so far, and the only thing I can find that weighs about as much as it is a AA battery, and the battery still weighs more.

More updates to come.
