Default Rock Crawling Concept Parts?

I am from Team Platinum Racing (As you have probably guessed! ) and I was wondering what kind of Clodbuster or Juggernaut upgrades would be popular. We currently make 1/8" 6061 T6 Sideplates, U-Bolt Brackets, and Shock Mounts for the Juggernaut, but we are looking into expanding our rock crawling lineup to include some other parts. We deal largely in 1/8" and 3/16" aluminum, so if you have an idea please specify what thickness you think it should be made out of. Please keep in mind weight, size, screw length, force transferance, load bearing parts, and strength. Anything you guys can come up with would be a great help. Next up should be a motor mount for a Juggernaut, but I'm not too sure. For more information on our current parts lineup, go to [link]www.TeamPlatinumRacing.com/JuggernautParts.html[/link].

Cool.. things that might sell........ I would think mostly about the TLT, Clod, TXT. Twin Force. I would look into Wheel adapters( not Wideners), a bolt on RockRing that can accommodate Larger tires, Servo mounts(regular & 1/4 scale, Tranny mounts, Link mounts, anything that toughens axles especially Clod Axles. There is alot of interest in 40 series wheels and 23mm hubs(Moab tires and Commando wheels). A custom Tranny would sell like hotcakes, I just got done making a custom tranny with "Counter Rotational" outputs which Eliminates "Torque twist", and there is alot of interest. Here's a look into the Future....... my Forward Tranny, High Clearance, Twin Force

Hope this helps

rod ends are always a big seller. Aslo, if you manufactured wheels that were already narrowed, that would be a hit too.
