Default My first Clod....pic heavy

My first Clodbuster build. New Super Clod buster kit. Added bearings and Jconcepts tires and wheels. I plan on making new beefier steering links but that's it. This thing is too fun.

Looks great, what tires/wheels that you changed too? Stampede or Pro-Line? Always loved monster trucks and still have sentimental feelings for Tamiya kits, not the highest performance but fun to build and drive.

These are Jconcepts Tribute wheels with Jconcepts Goldyear tires. Oh yeah this this is crazy fun stock. I'm not changing anything until something breaks.

OK, thanks for the reply, yeah stock or very close is best imo. I see you're doing some jumping, doing anything to brace the axle tubes?

This looks great! Clod Busters are great. Very fun build and fun to run. They take you back to the old days when life and RCs were simpler and all about fun.

The problem is they are the gateway drug to more monster trucks!

Yeah it was my gateway back into it, lol. But it got me out of crawlers and back having fun.

Looks great. Still have a Clod in the garage cabinet that I haven't used in years. May have to dust it off and get it running.

Awesome clod! The clodbuster is what got me into this whole crawler addiction!

I bought the cpe time warp chassis and a bunch of other parts to mod, but nope, it's still sitting stock.

Maybe I should buy some extra axles to use this parts up.

Nice build, i haven't done anything clod in ages, i have two super clod crawlers from way back in 2006, one unfinished clod tuber, and a couple of extra clod axles sitting around, and i found and old stock clod chassis that has been sitting around for ages, and just a couple days ago i started building that, so yes the timing for your thread is awesome for me, inspiring, i am starting the build thread this weekend
