No. that is a 6X6 Kyosho USA 1. Got confused by the Clod buster likeness. IMPO it would not make for a good crawler. Discontinued, parts are rare, brittle, and well, junk.

He he...

The only stock parts left are the gearcases and steering knuckles. I have spares.

It has a STRONG aluminum chassis, Thorp ball diffs and metal gears. Aftermarket aluminum lower arms and drive axles. Bearings everywhere.

And it DOES climb pretty well!

I don't know why it was moved since I already posted here...

Body pics are on my website at:

Just follow the link to Spots page. Got some rock climbing pics too for the doubters.
