Ive done some reserch and in honor of the clodlizza 3 Ive decided to make this a go faster clod for beach and yard bashing with some track racing mixed in so i swaped out the monster truck tires for some redcat 2.2 wheels and tires for now and i lowered the body to the chassis and rearanged the links and raised the shocks to lower the chassis some i cant wait for my new escs to come in so i can run this thing

I'd throw the MT tires on it, score a EVX'2 and hit them titans with 4s, you will have a smiles for years to come.... I have a clod I just finished up with titan/EVX2 combo. Threw in 19t pinions and have been running it 3s with a jumper, and it it soo much damn fun!

Either way, that is a hell of a deal for $45 bucks... Shit I'll give you $200 for what you have right now!
