Here's my Cliff Climber.

Stock ESC (for now)

Clocked front axle & extended chassis using Traxxas turnbuckles (part numbers #5138 front upper links and #5139 for all the rest of the links) makes wheelbase 12"

Hitec 645 for front steering and locked out rear steering (working on possible rear steering using 3rd channel)

Proline hammer tires

Traxxas shocks

Metal gears front and rear

Banebots motors on order

relocated one battery to front axle

Rear steer lockout: $.50



Modify Tires to get way better grip: $0
Cut Stock foams in half thickness wise: $0

8 oz lead in each fron tire: $10 (self-sticking lead tabs and solder (yes, solder) wrapped around the rim; no lead in the rear, as the rear has a battery pack)



6-32 allthread, 1/4" brakeline, Traxxas old emaxx ball ends: $12 total
12.5" wheelbase




use servo tape under clamps

clamps: $3



25% better articulation

batteries:

from a busted black and decker 16.8 drill (4/5sc Nicd 1000mah, currently taking 1368mah (?!?!): $0

trim body so batteries clear in front



ebay used trx 2075 servo and trx old emaxx Servo Saver: $15 total

i mounted the top link to the inside hole on the top and used a trx ball as a spacer and them mounted the bottom link to the outside holes on the bottom of the knuckles. the result is 50% better steering, and total lockout (the knuckles touch the axle now, eliminating the need for rear steer as well)



no, I WIN for biggest electronics!!

metal gears in the rear gearbox: $27


having a $176.50 Duratrax CC (Anderson Model "Crawler-X") (that outperforms ALL stock Axials: Priceless:-P

yeah, i was dumb and got the RTR; the stock ESC is TRASH, absolute trash (any kind of blip resets it, and it zeroes out the throttle no matter where it is (one time it did it when i had it at full throttle, leading to it going full speed in reverse (16.8v=5mph , a decent jog)

Hey guys. New to the site but not to RC. This is my first crawler, and I've built this more for trail running than crawling, but I do on occasion hit the rocks with it. Other than the body mods, and rear steer lockout it is a stock ARR running on a single Hyperion 2s lipo, and a cheapy 1/10 ESC. Anyway here's a few pics.

Ok guys, yesterday I won an original Blackfoot body on ebay, so I decided to see what the Parma Blackfoot body currently on the truck would look like on the CC. I moved all of the scale accessories and the driver over to it, and got it mounted. The only thing I don't like is that I can't use my grill, and now I have to wire up a whole new set of lights, but other than that I'm pretty happy with the way it looks.

Default Green Ghetto CC

i added 2 Banebots motors and kept the 16.8v

now it is alot faster (a RUN for a 7-year old)

and has alot more torque (i worry about the toothpicks that are in there, next upgrade is CVDs, now that the trannies are all Metal.)

total additional upgrade cost: $13 shipped for the motors, yes both of them

and $28 shipped for metal (each set) ( i tried a set of stock axial AX10 tires and beadlocks, which promptly scrapped the plastic gears)

My beater, redid the paint with Tamiya paints Metallic Red and Gunmetal with vynil pinstripe for window frames, extended the links and sleeved the lowers with SS piping and waiting on Aluminum tubing to come in to sleeve the tops. Good performance with good artic.
