My 16 year old son, Gavin Ayala created this video for Crawler Innovations. Gavin filmed it, edited it, and created the metal bumpers on both the 10.2 and TRX4 rc vehicles in this video. In some ways, this video has been 16 years in the making. For those not familiar with my son Gavin, he has been driving hobby grade rc cars since 2 years old. At 8 years old he competed at the 2010 United States Radio Controlled Crawler Association National Championship in Disney, Oklahoma where he finished 52 out of 100 drivers in the 2.2 Pro RC Rock Crawler Class. That was after he had earned his invite to compete in the championship through the LCQ or Last Chance Qualifier earlier that week.

Bringing the timeline up to 2017, Gavin taught himself to TIG weld. His Axial SCX10.2 Cherokee kit that he assembled in October of 2016 became his canvas. My Traxxas TRX4 was in need of strengthening as well. Gavin is coming up on one year of TIG welding now and both of these vehicles have changed considerably since the filming of this video in 2017. Gavin's skill in TIG welding, as well as design continue to improve and he has started his own RC Chassis company named "Ayala Metal Works." Crawler Innovations has several new builds under construction with Ayala Metal Works. As those builds are completed, I will film a build break down video to add to the CI series.



Technical Specs on the two RC's in this video:
Axial SCX10.2 Kit (assembled in October 2016)

Default a TRX4 w/ Rock Beast XL's; Forty One; and a baby skunk

Gavin and I headed out to the rock garden for an evening of drive time when we noticed a new resident. Apparently a baby skunk has made a home for itself in the rock garden. I personally have never seen a skunk this small, especially in the "wild". This little animal is so cute, and had a small swarm of flies following it everywhere. It reminded me of the cartoon character "pigpen" from the Peanuts Series.

The Traxxas TRX4 in the video is pretty much stock. The few changes it does have are a 35T hand wound brushed motor, Castle Creations ESC, Hitec Servo, Crawler Innovations front electronics tray which has a servo winch mounted P/N CWR-5015;
Traxxas TRX4 Front Electronics Tray - Crawler Innovations
The TRX4 is running a 3S lipo in the stock battery location.
The 1.9 bead locks are Incision Method MR307 in black:
Incision Method 1.9 MR307 Black Anodized - Vanquish Products
The tires are Pitbull Tires 1.9 Rock Beast XL's:
https://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/pbtpb9011nk.htm

Wanting to test a different foam set up on the TRX4 with XL height tires, here is the combo used in the video; Front Pair, Lil Nova 4.50 Comp Cut Inner with Medium Outer and the medium outer tuning ring installed, P/N CWR-2025.
Lil' Nova Dual Stage 4.50
Rear Pair, Lil Nova 4.75 Comp Cut Inner with Soft Outer and the soft outer tuning ring installed, P/N CWR-2034.
Lil' Nova Dual Stage 4.75
I was impressed with how this set up performed. These are New tires and New foams, used bead locks, and there first run on the rocks. Usually it takes 5 battery packs to set the tires and foams, but this combo worked well immediately and will only get better as it breaks in. The TRX4 weighs 8 pounds 7 ounces in this video or roughly 3.94 Kilos.

Also making an appearance in this video is the custom build "Forty One", link here:
"Forty One" by Ayala Metal Works for Crawler Innovations; 1.9 Ultra4

Thank you for watching, liking & subscribing.

This is the third video for The Formula. In this video The Formula is run in the opposite direction of the same course in the 2nd video. This was done completely on a whim, so some of the gates were actually not possible and The Formula is driven over the gate so that the course could be completed.

I'm pleased you like the new Cell Block configurations. Thank you for your feedback. I do have several new videos planned. They are currently on hold while I construct a studio. I will be making more videos in 2019.

I (Edmundo Ayala) built this 2.2 competition rc crawler in May of 2012. I used it to compete in the TXRCRCA series, and finished in the top four in the state of Texas and earned an invitation to the USRCCA World Championship that year. The chassis is a Y Town Crawlers Secret Agent in carbon fiber, with custom titanium links, with lots of #vanquishproducts parts to make the Axial XR10 axles durable. The build thread for this vehicle is located on the RCCrawler forum, linked below:
--- The Crawler Innovations XR-10 Build --
I passed this crawler on to my son (Gavin Ayala) several years ago and he created this video recently. Gavin did the driving, filming and editing for this video.

This is the first video of the Ayala Metal Works built "Forty One" rc crawler. This video will serve as a baseline, not the completed version of Forty One. After this video was filmed, Gavin made changes to Forty One which will be seen in the following series of videos for this build.

The set up for Forty One in this video included a 2500KV Tekin Racing Pro4HD motor, Castle Creations One Cell ESC and CC BEC, on 4S Lipo. Hitec steering servo. Both axles are Vanquish Products Curries and have standard VP AR44 gear sets. The tires are 1.9 Pitbull Rock Beast, the foams are Crawler Innovations 4.50" Lil Nova P/N; CWR-2025 in front with Deuces Wild in the rear; P/N; CWR-3001 The 1.9 bead lock wheels are Vanquish Products.

The build up of this rc crawler began in April of 2013. The axles are customized Kyosho Twin Force or Mad Force straight axles that have been heavily modified. The Kyosho twin force was the electric dual motor transmission version, while the Mad Force was the nitro version. This rc vehicle features many rare and custom parts from Super Shafty. It uses an Axial transmission. The chassis is carbon fiber. The rims are Crawler Innovations 6 Bolt Wheels in the 1" width (P/N; CWR-5003); the tires are narrowed Hot Body Sedonas with shaved sidewalls, grooved lugs, and clocked tread pattern, the tire foams are Crawler Innovations Double Deuce Foams (P/N; CWR-1044 front and CWR-1045 rear. The RTR weight is 4 pounds 3 ounces.

JoeyF on the RCCawler forum built this rc crawler and sold it to Crawler Innovations in December 2015.

A family that plays together stays together.

Now I have a better understanding of the foams, types, and applications. Will make some adjustments, but have been pretty happy with what I chose by chance and guess. Certainly better than single stage soft foams that come with tires.

I did not realize the PB's had become so popular - they tend to be my go-to as well. I've tried a lot of the prolines too, but seem to come back to my trusty RockBeasts.

Maybe you should make a line of tires as well.

Well said sir



The Pitbulls tires 4.50" Rock Beast is definitely our "go to" here at CI.


As for creating my own line of tires, I am more interested in working with a reputable company than creating my own line. The RC market is plagued with cheap copy cat imitations of so many tires already. Truly there is nothing new under the sun. I'd rather bring to market a true value where the right tire and foam are together in one package. Unfortunately NO Manufacturer has approached me or taken me up on talk like this. I don't understand why, the hobby would benefit and so would sales in general.



Thank you for your post and for viewership of the channel.

This is the first video of the Ayala Metal Works Chuggy and Forty One together on the Crawler Innovations rock garden. Both vehicles are TIG welded creations of my son Gavin of Ayala Metal Works. Both vehicles are based off the Axial racing SCX10.2 platform. Both vehicles have Vanquish Products Currie axles, motor plates, transmission top shafts, titanium links, transfer cases and 1.9 bead locks. Both vehicles are using the Pitbull Tires 1.9 Rock Beast (4.50" OG size), with Crawler Innovations 4.50" Lil Nova Comp Cut Foams. P/N; CWR-2025 front and CWR-2026 rear.

It's about the $$. PB came out with their own foams and frankly, they're not that versatile and therefore suffer some in tune-ability. Kind of a one-size-fits-all approach.

Same for Ottsix. Proline has some innovation, but their new 2-stage ones look like a copy of your product. IMO people will try to knock-off someone else's thing if it's any good.



No, just keep doing what you're doing. The enthusiasts know and like your product and your reputation is golden. Don't mess with that.

The chassis is a carbon fiber Y Town Chassis and 115mm rims, Vanquish Products aluminum XR10 tops, transmissions, link mounts, titanium links, steering knuckles and c's. These axles are made wide by using custom tubes and Wraith AR60 long side shafts on both sides. I made the tires by hand using 2.2 Hot Bodies Sedona tires and 3.8" sidewalls. The foams are Crawler Innovations Super Nova 7.75" Comp Cut inners with Soft Outers, : P/N; CWR-4004

This Traxxas TRX-4 was acquired in a trade in pieces after the previous owner had bashed it hard. Gavin decided to claim this one for himself and we've been referring to it as "The Box", for lack of a better name, and well, it's just so boxy.

Electronics installed in "The Box" for this video are Tekin Racing RS Pro ESC with Tekin 13.5 Gen 3 motor, on 3S Lipo, Hitec 5645MG steering servo, the front and rear axles have been locked out, only the two speed transmission is still functional.

1.9 bead locks are made by Vanquish Products, in the wide can design, Method style in orange with black rings. 1.9 Pitbull Tires XOR, filled with Crawler Innovations, Lil Nova 4.50" Comp Cut Inner / Medium outer P/N; CWR-2025 in front, Deuce's Wild Single Stage P/N; CWR-3005 rear, plus Deuce's Wild Tuning Discs P/N; CWR-3015, one disc on the outside of each foam, inside the tire, to add width to the foam, in order to control the tire.

The hype over this truck has long since left. Crawler Innovations actually PRE-ordered one of these UDR trucks, it's something I (Edmundo) rarely do. After the success of the TRX-4, I had high hopes for this truck. I was disappointed from day one and pretty much lost interest immediately. Thank fully Gavin took an interest in it and all of the videos about this truck were created by him. This video is footage of the vehicle itself.
