I have a TLT crawler currently undergoing a tube frame conversion after having a custom machined chassis, and my roommate is in the same process. We should be good to go in about two weeks. We go to SDSU. where do you guys crawl in san diego? We hit up Cowles Mountain

Hows it. I have just put the finishing touches on a TXT crawler. Up here in Escondido. Found some spots here and there(Lake Dixon) but still lookin for a gem. I have a track in my friends backyard, small and tight but fun to bash on.

We crawled right on the main hiking trail maybe 100 yards from the start of the trail. There are three pretty fun switchbacks in that area. It's definitely not somewhere where you could get a lot of people together (that trail is VERY crowded with people) but one or two rigs and there's no problem. We haven't really looked for anywhere else in the SD area because currently our TLT's are in pieces.
I have some pics and vids of us at cowles mountain under this thread.

Some Action pics and vid in San Diego

I hope you guys can make it up north for our comp series. I know it's
a drive but it is only once a month.

Hopefully this weekend i get a chance to start bending the tubing, and then all i need is to make upper links : )
P.S. The shocks are just laying there because they have no where to be mounted to, in case you think i was on to something that wasnt going to work : )

About an hour from N. County maybe a little more. Well worth a day trip.
