Seriously, I would do it but first, its a lot of cash (the plasticclod axles are just not made for jumping from my own experience) and second, its gonna be a bash truck and driving a $3000 shiny, fully aluminium Clod at 40mph is a bit suicidal. I've only just finished uni and looking for a job so mo...

The Basics are basically the budget motors in the Lehner line. They can handle up to 700 watts. Simple design and the usual option for brushless e-maxxes, along with the Basic XL (up to 1300 watts). The Lehner 19 series (1920,1930,1940) are more reliable, slightly more efficient and above all draw m...

It was going to run a pair of Lehner 1930/5 or 1920/8. There are a number of issues with the clod. Firstly, you need two motors to make it 4WD. That means you need twice the amount of ESCs and cells mounted on the truck. Lots of weight! Secondly, with each motor handling front and rear, there were g...

Brushless Clod down the drain!!

After many months of battling to get a fully aluminium, 40+mph brushless clod, I've given up. Upgrading the drivetrain is just going to cost too much. However, I haven't given up on creating a brushless monster so I will be acquiring a twin force or a TXT-1. So, stay tuned!

You can get a super clodbuster pretty cheap from a Local Hobby Store or Towerhobbies.com or wherever. You'll need to start with ball bearings all round, some good oil shocks, a good chassis, a good ESC, a good servo (or 2 if you want 4WS) and a good pair of motors. What kind of batts and charger do ...

There are two types of brushless set-ups: sensored and sensorless. Sensored like the Novak brushless series have great throttle control (no cogging) but are limited in cell use and compatible motors. Sensorless like Lehner, Hacker, BK electronic, Plettenberg have slight cogging problems at low rpm b...

I'd love to see some more work of yours DangerRanger. Maybe you should try a pimped out bruiser look alike with TLT axles. I'm sure you'd do one heck of a job!

True, JPS and GPM axles are expensive but I don't think you'll be able to break them mate. Machined aluminium construction! The only thing I'm worried about is that I'm gonna scratch them a lot and ruin their nice shiny look.... :( . I got tired of having to replace my stock plastic axles every coup...

I hate to say this, really I do but you just can't beat the E-Maxx for the price. 2 speed gearbox, EVX 12 cell ESC, Titan 550 motors.....I mean its such a great deal for $315 at towerhobbies. The twin detonator is around $125 and it comes with an MSC, stock 540 motors and no radio. If you bought an ...

If they were simply motors, then yes. Unfortunately, they have an integrated circuit board which isn't designed for over 6V. Plus receivers (excluding BEC receivers) and such work at 4.8V-6V so you would fry them too with higher voltages. Some servos like some Ko Propo versions are designed for 7.2V...

For now, you can attack your servo the cheapo way!

You can use another servo on the back or lock the rear.

Nice skids. Definitely a great idea for any solid axle trucks, since they reduce snagging and damage to the gearbox. Tell us how it works out. My skids worked great for me but they were very thin aluminium and were only there to prevent scratches rather than take any impact force.
