No SWEET jumps, Just scale Jumps. Hope that video helps you to see how fast it can go, its only stock pinions for now. Or can try this try this video. I went to a world finals event on a different Island and took some video of the racing action. This was before I painted Monster Mutt. Mines is the white c-10 chevy that almost lost to the black flying Semi in the first race Highlight

I have been looking into building one of these. I know nothing about Clods so I've been trying to learn as much as I can. Got any body off shots?

Great looking truck and sweet track! It's nice to see that Clods don't always have to end up as crawlers. There's actually a nicely growing interest in race trucks again.

In general, a Clod race truck can cost anywhere from a few hundred to over $1000 to build. I know that some of our team trucks are pushing $1500 between brushless, lipo, radios, and custom bodies.

We can help with any questions you may have regarding parts and/or setups for this style of Clod.

I have a second clod on its way from a custom tube builder. When that is done, CPE the rest of the way. Nothing less than three clods.

And thank You, CPE, for the ROM vote.

Default Wow...

Today was fun once again in the 'Clod Arena'. The added Obticals and Chicago style course was interesting. But the Mutt could not help itself but to get right into FreeStyle. Jumps got into the, "SICK" catigory and that 11 year old chassis continues to prove its durability.

It will take some time to gather the footage and and edit it to make a video. As usual, I work faster upon request. So LMK if you all can not wait.
