Default What's A ClodBuster???

I know what a Tamiya ClodBuster is but most pics in this forum don't look like a Tamiya Clod.

SO what is and what isn't a ClodBuster?

the pics in the clodbuster gallery are all clodbusters, they're just modified or extremely modified. A clod buster is a MOA crawler, kinda like a slightly bigger berg or xr10. most of the clods on here aren't stock. I have a set of clod axles on a pimpcane chassis, making it a clod BASED crawler, like most of the other clod crawlers. hope it helps.

technically it's not a crawler, it's a monster truck.

no problem, strap has a good point, they were originally a monster truck and then someone tried crawling with them and there you go, clod crawler.

It was the first axles that could handle actual crawling and the grandfather of MOA(well actually someone once tried making a crawler out of frog rear axle ) along with the txt/juggernaut being the first shafty crawler.. The bruiser was the OG of "crawlers" but nobody could afford back then to chop up a perfectly good $100+ bruiser axle that would snap and cost a fortune for a replacement axle.
