This is just letting everyone know that TLT axles are still in high demand and a favorite among builders.

It's 2013 now, but here's my most recent TLT build:



It will eventually get rovers. I have one pair, but messed up and didn't order a second...

Yeah, I made the plate,from a piece of strap aluminum and a hacksaw in my bedroom at my desk... It's not too pretty but it works I guess

Is that an Eclipse chassis? I just finished building my eclipse but didn't use TLT axles. Instead I used t-rex 60 axles. The eclipse chassis is pretty awesome in my book.

I've been a fan of the Eclipse chassis since TCS released it! caI finaclly was in a position where I can own and build a working rig with this chassis...

Cool build thread and some sweet old school tlt from other members. Is there any action pics or a vid of it in action.

This build actually got torn apart to so I could build this:

2013 j2-tt

It's basically the same, just a different chassis and wheels/tires. I have it mostly torn apart at the moment, but I'll eventually get a video of it posted up. Keep checking the other thread for the vid

My first crawler built in 2006 and it still competes today. Just upgraded lock outs to a straight aluminum housing.

My 2013 Ambush CGR TLT.
