Default My crawler project

well i finally got around to making my first crawler. started with a clodzilla chassis and reworked it to make it better. pics have stock e-maxx tries on tho i will be running moabs with 40 series rims narrowed 1". stearing is also not hooked up since i havn't made the links for it eyt

new links to stretch wheelbase to 16"
link mount holes for direct shock connection.
adjustable body mounts.
dif mounted servos (tho still in work)
had to drill some new holes for the links to allow for an above dif connection.
custom cut and narrowed moab 40 series rims. (tho not pictured since i need adapters still)
locked difs of course.

tell me what ya think.

Before


After

waiting on new rims lol. the ones i got and narrowed for my moabs turned out to be the wrong ones since i didnt know there was no such thing as a 14 mm adapter for 23mm 40 series rims.

the body was actually kinda a mess up on my part tho you cant see it hehe. i originally tried to narrow the front keeping the fenders on but when i went to melt it mack together the fender went to junk. it worked on on the back, only prob is you can tell where they were overlapped since they didnt melt perfectly since it would ahve ruined it. it looks good enough tho i guess heh. i had taken the e-maxx tires back off it to run my e-maxx, but i recently snapped one of the abck turn buckles so back on the crawler they go! lol

Nice project! Body is awesome!

Thunder Tech Racing makes wheel adapters for using TMAXX type rims on Clod axels.

i already have adapters, like i said i just ordered to wrong rims to fit on them. for 40 series rims u need a 23mm adapter which stupidly enough connects to the drive bar itself and not the hex.

ok so i finally finished this puppy. took it out back today and it was sick. if it doesnt snow ill get some pics tomarow. so heres the completed version with servos and tires installed.

the rims have been narrowed 1 inch so they wouldnt rub and also get some extra bite.
