Got my crawler up and running again, tried the boulder rockwall. It is difficult to clear some gaps with the 2.2. A few flatstones or 2x4's would work for transitions, and moved from course to course.

That all aluminum XTM is pertty!.

Hope the rc4wd one is worth it.


Side note my 2000, tracker's motor blew today right at the 100k mark. I don't have any wheels right now so if someone has a CHEAP work truck for sale they want to sell real fast LMK.

Pretty sure the XTM truck is manufactured by RC4WD as well, the axles look a lot like RC4WDs Raptor axles. They make parts for a lot of companys, not just the stuff they sell through their site.

It needed a lot of work plus the guy just kind of offered me money. No for sale sign on it or anything.
The list of what was wrong with it was huge remember it got flooded.
Clutch rusted to flywheel
seats smell like the dead
broke front locker
broke winch
no brakes
no doors
no windshield
no top
bent tie rod
broken ear on x case


Side note that nicer tracker I bought this winter the motor blew 801 miles outside of the warranty.:-(

That's a pretty good buy if it's drivable and is not falling apart. Iowa rig?

Yeah drivable just the IA rust in place of sheetmetal. It is even current on the registration.

Yah, priced like that yuh gotta act quick. Sorry, better luck next time. Those pics of mine were after I cut all the rust out FYI. This is what it looked like when I got it.




Amazing what some pop rivits, galvenized sheet metal, and a LOT of bondo can do.

No I'm not but that sounds like a pretty good deal.

I'm going to make a tractor I have all the parts to do it so why not. This flood has made me lonely. All my friends that were in my hood all got flooded real bad. They have either moved or are living else where while rebuilding. A tractor should keep me buisy after work.

RC tractor, or a lawn tractor? MAKKEM pulls lawn tractors and minni rod class tractors. He could get you some parts if you need. He wants to build a nitro RC puller too.
