That is a little difficult considering that it's in the Design Stages, LOL.

I have it posted here

The Suspension needs designing along with the Axle Rear Ring and Pinions, Transmission, Drive Shafts, Rims, and a lot more.

When the design is finished it I have to machine everything. This is going to take some time unfortunately:-(.

I need powerful cans and an ESC for Dual Motors. Any suggestions? I have been out of RC for about 15 years and a lot has changed.

Second Jdawg, i like the build, i dont know how i missed that one. Keep it goin man cant wait to see the finished product.

And third, some people don't have the money to go out and buy two $120 t rex sixty axles and pay 240 bucks on AXLES ALONE. maybe some of us arent ready or arent able to pay that much. the moa cc is excellent for anyone its cheap, pretty reliable and who cares if you make it into a scaler. Just bacause you beleive something doesnt mean everyone else has to beleive that to.

THANKS GUYS! I am very happy that we are back on track! You are all welcome to my house for Thanksgiving! HA!

That is what I like about the Cliff CLimber, out of the box it is a lot of fun and quite capable for $120 or so. The only thing Duratrax needs to get on the ball with is getting us better Pinion Gears! and upgraded motors and better shocks that don't run you $70+ (Big Bore). But I can live with the stock setup since I am only having fun with it.

Can anyone with this chassis tell me what the wheelbase is, and what dimensions on the body would be suitable?

I would really like to do a scale looking rig.. or scale-ish.. was originally thinking the Proline Hummer H1 for stampede.. but not sure if it's too small (narrow)..

Ha! I just measured the truck last night to see if it would fit in a Rubbermaid box but I did not get the wheelbase. I will do that later today. If I remember correctly the wheelbase was around 11.5 inches hub to hub. over all length was like 16-17" long Front to Back on frame.

Went home at lunch-
Wheelbase is 10 7/8" nut to nut
Frame length is 15 3/4" end to end
I think the Hummer would look cool on this frame, not sure what the WB is on that puppy.

Wheelbase on the 'Pede Hummer body is 10". It could work as a crawler body but not real scale looking. The body is not as wide as the CC is the inside side wall of the tires line up with the fenders on the Hummer body. Hummer body width is 6".

Wonder then if the maxxed sized NON-h2 body will work.. or maybe even the Bushwacker.. would probably try to see if I can run some sort of 1.9's

Sorry, can't help there, all my max bodies have been long gone. If I remeber right the width would be about right but the length may be to long.
