Re: AZ crawling - 4-30-05 PICS

Glad to see you are posting again, hope you stick around for a while and help show those of us that have not been with the site as long what we have missed. Yeah, it's good to see these old pics. The early days of crawling were so much fun. Every truck was a custom build. Lots of fun! I'm mostly in...

Ah, the good old days of rock crawling when we all built our own trucks. There was such a greater variety of rigs back then.

Re: 6x6 Clod Build and join in with input and Question.

Todd, very cool build and I'm glad we (TCS) can provide you with some parts for your build. I miss the good old days of crawling that started here on ClodTalk back in the early 2000's.

I guess this writeup will only get some of you frustrated, considering you can't get these motors in the good old US of A. But I thought I would post up my findings anyway. I was finally able to install and test the LRP Truck Puller 2 motors I got from a good customer of mine in Germany over a year ...

the bta steering makes a huge difference. it's one of those things, once you switch over to it, there's no going back. At least for crawling.

here's a really simple way. Just use some servo mounts bolted directly to the long axle tube brace. Then use a small piece of all thread to make a small link. The only problem with this method is that sometimes you have interference problems with the motor. http://www.thecrawlerstore.com/Update_1_1....

i experimented with Kokam 2000mAh 15C packs in a clod crawler with lathe motors. With 13 tooth pinions it seemed to kill the batteries after about 10 runs. The batteries started tripping the low voltage cutoff at about half the batteries capacity. Things got better once started running 8 tooth pinio...
