1:6 CXT Build
This is my first build in a long time. I am on a budget so no high end parts for now. The frame and suspension links will be made from Carbon Fiber. The colors I have are Black,Red,Blue,Silver and Yellow I don't know which one I will use. The truck is to big for Rock crawling so it will be a little Rock crawling and truck pulling like tractor pulling with a sled. The parts list is small but its a start.



I will use one of these Carbon Fiber color's for the frame and suspension links.

Can't wait to see how this goes. But if you really want it to be a crawler then it is very possible. It all depends on how capable you want it to be.

JJR 07-30-2007 10:42 PM

I am open to any suggestion. The frame will be more to scale like the Bruiser. I am going to start making the flat sheet of Red Carbon Fiber. The sheet will 3-ft. x 2ft. and 1/4-in. think, that way there will be enough to make the suspension links.

Whered you get that truck from? I wanted to buy one for my little cousin since we saw a 1:1 version of that the other day and he got so excited..

I checked e-bay and a few online stores and couldnt seem to find it..


P.S. Looks like its going to be a good build!

Mikekx65 07-31-2007 03:36 PM

Take a look at the k2 chassis those are scale chassis but you would have to make your own. Since there only like 12" and 16" or you can make a simple ladder chassis. do you want it to be a crawler,trail truck,or a puller? it all depends on what you want the truck to do. that will determine on how you should build the chassis.

JJR 07-31-2007 05:04 PM

X2 how did those x-fac ball ends work out for you? I can't wait to see it!

JJR 08-04-2007 12:32 PM

They worked great Thanks.

mississippirocs 08-04-2007 08:13 PM

As big as that truck is and with the size of the tires, have you thought about using a droop type suspension so that your COG and ride height would be lower. I cant wait to see this thing finished with all the carbon fiber details.

JJR 08-05-2007 03:09 PM

I want to build it some what to scale, but if when I cycle the suspension I find that it needs a sub frame I will. Keep in mind I would like to do some Rock Crawling with it and truck pulling with a sled which is my next project.

ALUMOUT 08-05-2007 05:40 PM

Thats huge!!! looks great cant wait to c it done:lol:

JJR 08-20-2007 11:49 AM

I just installed some parts on my Clod Diff. Delrin Diff Locker,servo,steering links,servo saver,wheel adapters,wheels and tires.

Servo HS 5645 MG

Delrin Diff Locker

Servo Saver

Wheels and tires

Clod Axel


clod booster 08-20-2007 12:03 PM

i dont think a 645 and servo saver are gonna be very good at turning those tires. but good lukc with the build, a droop suspesnion would be awesome.

JJR 08-20-2007 12:11 PM

I looked around to see what every one is running. I found almost half of the people using the HS 5645 MG and this servo saver with big tire. The info I got was from the sticky in the Clod section. Is this info out of date?

JJR 08-20-2007 07:25 PM

I got my motors in today. Integy 65T single.


Mikekx65 08-20-2007 07:33 PM

Awesome,hey BTW did you ever get that body from bronco?

JJR 08-20-2007 07:36 PM

I got the cab but no bed.

Mikekx65 08-20-2007 07:49 PM

Were you expecting the bed too? Im just wondering because eric is a good friend of mine and usually isnt like this.

JJR 08-20-2007 08:04 PM

I asked him for it. I figured when he said Body for sale that included the Cab and Bed. Why would I just want the Cab. The Bed is what I wanted the most so I can make a mold of it and make it longer.

Mikekx65 08-20-2007 08:14 PM

Alright man ill talk to him a little later and find whats the deal. Eric is usually pretty good about holding up his end of the deal.

JJR 08-20-2007 08:19 PM

Thanks man I know He is a good Kid I know he will come through.

Bronco 08-21-2007 06:49 AM

madhatter 08-26-2007 12:01 PM

Maybe not considering the diameter of the tires.
