Default what's the sickest chassis for clod?

i traded for a clod with ally axles and i'm looking for the sickest chassis to put them under.. i'd like to do a stock crew cab clod body. either that or a scale monster truck.. or maybe a 6x6.. what's out there now, not looking to race, looking for scale.

i remember back in the day there were some super expensive clods in rc car action, i can't find any of them tho

Sassy Chassy used to make a 6x6 chassis. They were pretty sweet. A friend of mine had one, it was a beast all loaded up and ready to go.

If you look at the Bug bodied truck I have, the chassis is made of thick lexan. I just found a skull I liked on the net and sized it for a chassis. I have never broken it.

My first comp crawler I built was with a home-made lexan chassis as well. Never broke it either, retired it when I got my LCC.

You can try to find a Bennett chassis too. They were really good chassis, would give ESP a run for their money in racing.

Another option is to look at the radio controlled truck pulling site(s). There maybe some things there too.

Our Terminator chassis can be built into a pretty scale looking monster. We also have our brand new Predator chassis debuting next week.

If you want to custom build something, you can order our Ground Pounder tube style chassis plates and then build the truck to your specs.

You'll be hard pressed to beat CPE on a Clod MT chassis kit. I've had two now....and while I did have to sell them, I will be building me a new one with a CPE setup, when time/play funds permit

I totally forgot about CPE, sorry guys. My lil' sister has a Ground Pounder and the chassis is very impressive. My sister can't drive for beans and this truck has taken her abuse very well.

We've just introduced our new Predator chassis for the Clod as well. Designed to handle dual batteries, this chassis carries over some of the features included with our championship winning Terminator chassis, all at a more affordable price.

Default Powers?

What happened to the old Powers racing chassis and Eric Beach and those guys from Tweaked Racing? They had that ECD chassis too... They had some extremely functional and unique chassis designs...

This is an idea I havent seen anyone else do yet.

A Hot Racing Chassis for the AX-10.

These are like $70 on ebay.

This photo shows my AX-10 build up, but I have just built another one with a set of Clod axles. It does really well!

Pimp cane by jp customs. Simple yet very effective. Gives you the lowest cog possible. I run one on my clod axles. Damn thing will climb a near straight vert. Or the superjuice.. that is a sick chassis as well. Both can be found and purchased right here on RCCrawler...
