The Crawler Innovations; Y Town Double Agent XR10
 
Comp rigs are a special breed. They are built and designed to challenge the status quo, fight gravity, and put a smile on the face of the driver and spectator alike. Scalers can't do what comp rigs can do, and because of that, comp rigs will never die.

This truck has been in the planning stage since last year. The parts and time finally came together and here is the Crawler Innovations Double Agent.

First and foremost, a huge Thank You to my sponsors on this build:


Holmes Hobbies
Y Town Crawlers
Vanquish Products

Thank you.

I don't know. It's not an event that I currently plan to attend, but life is always changing so I'm not totally ruling it out.

I cannot take credit for that. The story goes, I already had the Y Town Crawlers Double Agent Chassis @ the CI shop. I couldn't find a second set of VP'd XR Axles. VP didn't have them, team driver or not. However, Steve connected me with Rob who works @ VP and wanted to sell his axles. They had stock gears, universals, on a stock xr chassis with VP DH wheels. I bought the rig for the parts I needed and sold the rest. The beadlocks were orange and went perfect with another build the 2.2 Mini Clod. Build Thread:

BTW, the video posted above may not play in all countries or on certain media platforms due to the music and the lyrical content. I guess there's a little too much spoken truth.

Lucky you that everything worked out and turned out nice then. VP parts are so hard to find right now.

Crawler Innovations reviews (and by review CI means that we show you what the tires do on the rocks, not talk about them) the new RC4WD 2.2 Bully Competition Tire for RC Rock Crawlers of the competition flavor. By referencing "comp" it means that the rc rock crawler is not scale to a 1:1 rock crawler; it means the rc rock crawler vehicle is designed for all out performance within the class rules it competes in.

In this video, Crawler Innovations is using three different trucks, built to USRCCA 2.2 Pro and 2.2 Shafty specifications. Each truck has a build thread linked to it below;

First truck in video is a 2.2 Shafty:
http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/axial...novations.html

2nd Truck featured is 2.2 Pro, Y Town Crawlers Double Agent XR-10;
http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/axial...gent-xr10.html

3rd Truck featured is 2.2 Pro, Y Town Crawlers Secret Agent XR-10;
http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/axial...-10-build.html

All of the tires, foams, and wheels used in this video are off the shelf parts and unmodified. Anyone can purchase these parts. There will be a full write on RCCrawler - News, Reviews, Videos and much more! in the tires and wheels section. I'll try to link back to it here once it's posted on RCC. All trucks used Crawler Innovations 6 Bolt Wheels that use Vanquish Products SLW hubs, all trucks used Crawler Innovations Double Deuce Foams in one flavor or another.

Thank you for watching.

By referencing "comp" it means that the rc rock crawler is not scale to a 1:1 rock crawler; it means the rc rock crawler vehicle is designed for all out performance within the class rules it competes in.

In this video, the tires have been trimmed into a new pattern by removing pins. Crawler Innovations is using two different trucks, built to USRCCA 2.2 Pro specifications. Each truck has a build thread linked to it below;
