Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

Holy Moly...the vintage clod sold for $500 (shipped)! :shock: Am I missing something? I've seen the NIB (New In Box) old Clod kits sold for $300 or less. Maybe the Clod market has gotten hot again with all of us drooling over these Monster Trucks! :lol: Hey TamiyaTony...I would think your Clod is wo...

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

Gosh, I keep looking for good deals on Clods and no luck... :x I don't know...after experiencing those "used car" Clods, I'm a bit shy from getting good deals. :wink: On the other hand, check these two items out... Check out this guy who has no clue and is treating the Clod like an heirloom...he wa...

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

I was looking for used Clods for a future project and came upon this one with a Super Rooster and cool body: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320444665877&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT Then I saw this other one that included a CZ2 as well as a Kyosho Nitro USA-1: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/...

Close but no cigar...

Man, Tony....you're a great Monster Truck Bloodhound! :D Crimson Giant sure looks like the one; however it is a 1987 Chevy/GMC long bed and the Clod started production in 1987 (probably requiring at least a year or two of development for the body). Samson is a 1984 long bed, so it is a more likely ...

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

81-87 GM trucks had the clod body style, I have an 81 Not a monster truck, but same body style NICE!!! :) This is an example of why it's so tough to pinpoint which vehicle the Clod is based on...many trucks shared the same body style and parts. I recall researching it and having literally a list of...

Re: Gorilla Warfare - Tank Maxx (Full Metal Monster Truck II)

Thanks Halgar! :D I actually only have a vid of the finished product and even then it's nothing to brag about. I eventually switched to dual servo steering (turning those front tracks are heavy work!) and it seems to be sucking power from the ESC, so I've gotten a Castle BEC, but found out I need th...

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

DAMNNNNN! Those are some awesome pics! :shock: I'm pretty sure that Samson I was the model for the Clod... -Samson I was last heard of being sent to Japan in the 80's... how does a Monster truck disappear in Japan? -The bumper is similar right down to the winch -"4x4x4" shows up on the axles and tha...

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

Thanks guys! Glad you enjoyed them ( see Tony...no grass! :lol: ) BTW - I think TamiyaTony found the Clod Motherlode...Samson I definitely looks like it could be the truck the Clod is modelled after (possibly some slight changes like the grill to a 86 Chevy to avoid copyright issues). I found this s...

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

Nice monster tuck!!! :shock: Looks like it could be the one the Clod was modelled after. Is that from 1986 or so? Years back I asked people here if they knew what truck the Clod is modelled after and no one seemed to know. I thought I just found it recently when I picked up a "blast from the past" t...

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

Thanks for the valuable info. I would lean towards the 32 pitch because I'm not interested in ludicrous speed and rolling the Clod. I get my fill of that by watching Monster Jam on tv. :wink: BTW, I can't believe that team Grave Digger is up to #20 chassis! I remember Digger from day 1. Sure has co...

No problem at all Charlie! After all, wisdom is only gained once you're really an old man...something like 50 years old. :mrgreen:

Re: My very first Clod and the project that follows...

Pitch? Now I'm more confused. I thought axles were axles. :( Now I'll need to do more research... I have the impression that a custom Clod build takes far longer than anticipated. Much like my bike did. And my Ibanez as well. d'oh! Pitch refers to the gear-tooth size. 32 pitch is larger gear teeth ...
