Props to Joey for an amazingly well built and performing Shafty. This rig now resides in the Crawler Innovations stable. I've owned it over a month now and it's so much fun!

Here are pics of what it looked like when it arrived;

The only thing I have done to this rig is change the body and the wheels and tires. I've never purchased such a well tuned rig before. It's amazing what it does and how smooth it is on the rocks.

I definitely agree about being lucky. This rig is one of my favorites currently.

I really do! Thank you for selling it to me / CI.

Track width as pictured is 10.75"
350 hub front
600 hub rear
1" width 6 bolt wheels

I could still narrow the track width if need be.

There's no thinking about it, I do have an addiction and I admit it :-D

Some pics of the TF Sporty from the CI road trip to King of the Hammers 2016. This location had some great terrain to drive on:

Comp Crawlers are a special breed. They are built and designed to challenge the status quo, fight gravity, and put a smile on the face of the driver and spectator alike. Scale Rock Crawlers cannot perform in the same way as comp crawlers, and because of that, competition rc rock crawlers will never die.

The Meteor Crater rest stop is located in Arizona along Interstate 40. Crawler Innovations stopped on the return trip to Texas from King of the Hammers 2016 to rest and play on the rocks.

C.I still has this truck, it gets driven every now and then. I widened the rear upper links and flipped the rear shocks.

The build up of this rc crawler began in April of 2013. The axles are customized Kyosho Twin Force or Mad Force straight axles that have been heavily modified. The Kyosho twin force was the electric dual motor transmission version, while the Mad Force was the nitro version. This rc vehicle features many rare and custom parts from Super Shafty. It uses an Axial transmission. The chassis is carbon fiber. The rims are Crawler Innovations 6 Bolt Wheels in the 1" width (P/N; CWR-5003); the tires are narrowed Hot Body Sedonas with shaved sidewalls, grooved lugs, and clocked tread pattern, the tire foams are Crawler Innovations Double Deuce Foams (P/N; CWR-1044 front and CWR-1045 rear. The RTR weight is 4 pounds 3 ounces.

JoeyF on the RCCawler forum built this rc crawler and sold it to Crawler Innovations in December 2015.

Yes it is. Other than the drive shaft set screws coming loose, there has been no issues with this crawler. My son Gavin has taken interest with it, and he is the one that made the video and did some tuning. I haven't driven it since he tuned it. For whatever reason, we seem to be going through a competition 4x4 / 2.2 shafty phase at the moment. We currently have four running crawlers and two more in project nearing completion. It's always surprising what these crawlers will accomplish compared to a MOA. Especially with the simplicity of only 2 channels, steering and throttle.
