Default Venom Creeper is Back on the Market

Is it a "cheap Chinese clone" if it's been out of production for years? Either way, good or bad, it's back. Everything looks the same except for the driveshafts. I think it's priced too high though.

It looks like the Creeper Safari frame extensions are aluminum now instead of plastic. The switch for the locking diffs is still there. I hope they changed the design to full time locked.

It's hilarious that they chose to clone this one.

I had a creeper for my first crawler as well. I loved it. Not much was left stock though. Ended up with an ab designs chassis for that fastback style body less look. I remember getting the kit for like $120 so it does seem pretty high. It's tempting for sure.

Wow, creeperbob, been a long time since I saw your name
In the last month I decided to return to rc after almost 3 years in the army, added fpv system to my creeper
And yup, my chassis is the abdesign too, but cut out of aluminium ;)

I don't see any parts for the zd 08422, and no cvd for the creeper, maybe just buy a whole axle?

I ran a RMDW Vulture chassis on mine. It appears someone is selling the same chassis now under a different name.

I didn't know the wheelie king axles had any decent cvd options. What brand? Any chance on a part number?
