That was fun, I've only been to 2 and finished both. It was good to hear that I was geared like you, I thought I was the only one not geared to go fast. Nice to see you out on the rocks again...

If you missed out and have access to FB check out the Guys at San Diego Scalers they hooked it up. It's been a while since I've seen this many crawlers having a blast...

I can't seem to get my for sale item up in the classifieds. But I would like to give you locals a chance first.

I have to tf2 swb with a H3 hummer body for sale or trade for a drifter.
55turn motor. Ae5 esc. Solar d772 servo. No remote/receiver.

I will post up a pic or two. It's still pretty new. Only ran for like 5 min on 2s in my backyard.

Hi guys, newbie question. I'm looking for some new tires. I have 2 wraiths, both are slow crawlers. One with flat iron 2.2 M3 and the other has mud slingers 2.2. What scale tires and foams do you guys like specifically for our dry loose climate?

Thanks,
Kevin

When i had my Wraith i ran the stock Ripsaws R35 with stock foams and was fairly happy with them as i was learning to crawl again at 40yo. I went to PIT BULL 2.2 Rock Beast II Scale Crawler,with Komp Kompound PIT BULL 2.2 Rock Beast II Scale Crawler,with Komp Kompound (2) with Crawler Innovations Deuce's Wild Single Stage 2.2 Tall Foams Crawler Innovations Deuce's Wild Single Stage 2.2 Tall Foam Pair (2)(2) and the difference was night and day. For me the PBRB2's just glue themselves to the rocks but YMMV.

I am building a tubed u4/rock racer thing to play around the yard with and will try Pro-line Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XL 2.2" G8 Rock Terrain Truck Tires with CI foams next.

Can someone hook it up and approve my join request to the Facebook group?? Request was sent two weeks ago.... Looking forward to meeting you guys!!! Got a Twin Hammers basher and converting a 1/8th MOA comp rig to 1/10th scale, bronco SC body, steel frame, huge tires.... Lol...

And my back fence borders Chollas Park, so if your in the area looking for crawl spots I know the park really well. Couple trails, some good hill climbs, and a few rock gardens. My son and I run the crawlers on Sundays or run the SC trucks in our backyard track.

My modified brushless Twin Hammers, thing is more FOFF then crawler right now. Traxxas steering bellcrank, traxxas front upright shocks, sway bars, ect....

I wanted to get into it a while ago, bought and built a HPI cupracer datsun 510....then had no where to play/drift it so I sold it. I hear there is or was a drift place in kearny mesa.

My dad and I have a Tamiya M05 and M06, respectively, and just go over to the parking lot in front of the El Cajon PD to run them... They aren't really drift cars, but they aren't performance either.

Not to derail the thread or go off topic but was looking at this too as another avenue, shame we dont have a venue around us. I often wondered whether theres a business venture there that could house all three disciplines in one location with some mezine floors or clever track design? ie drift circuit in center, clay track around the outside and in the corners, heavy crawling terrain and stream....

I've been asked to leave the EC police parking lot but i was crawling in the rocks between the levels of parking. And the mall parking structure on the top level. And level 3 where no one really parks by the Macy's or jcpenny or whatever it is. Not the Walmart parking structure that is more busy.
Bizarre fish
You are absolutely correct. We do.

Edit...I found this.

Can someone please post a working link to the Facebook page for the SD crawler group?

I've tried to find it numerous times to no avail.

Thanks!

Hi guys so I use to frequent this website all the time mostly lurking and learning. Ive had an axial xr-10 for quite some time now. i have pretty much everything to get it running. just need some one to wire it up for me. (id rather not do it myself) Anyone have a local hobby shop they trust. I've read bad reviews about hobby people and el cajon hobbies. These are the closest to me. thanks for any input.

You might give SDRC a call, I'm sure someone there will help you out. If not hit me up with a PM and I'll be happy to hook up with you one day that I'm there and help you out.
