Hey All, i know you guys are all very busy with the great projects you have running still . . . . But, i'm impatient! Very impatient, so i decided to make a complete NEW design Clod Axle that gives a 16" overall track width without using "Wheel Wideners". This puts the Hub Carrier right slap bang in...

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 cou...

If they allow brushless motors, why don't you add them in your truck? Its expensive but its worth a try if you got the $$ and the cohones :D. Your plastic gears won't last long so I suggest upgrading to metal gears, coming-out soon Thundertech Thorp Diffs and CVDs.Alternatively, get an ESC which ca...

The Eliminator system will be replaced by the Aggessor system when it is ready. I know we've been promising preview pics and are getting close to being able to do so. We are giving every part of the gearbox a work over but want to be sure that stock parts can also be bolted up and used as well. Reg...

Actualy, if it was widened at the GearCase end, a wider diff hex could substitute the original bronze Tam part and save making new Drive Shafts :)

That's a shame. :? :?

The "Eliminator" is a great idea, but a, stock a weak replacement.

It'll be a great new Tougher up grade.

P.S.

Show the designs before you go ahead and get the moulds made.

Customer input is always better WITH the R & D team as opposed to criticism after when it's too late to change aspects cuz of big investment.

BTW, my Ripper is STILL my favourite Clod

Hey Brad, A few months back when i spoke to Darren, i asked if these new tubes would have smaller tougher "C's" on them, so they take smaller GPM type Hub Carriers without the need to use spacers. He didn't seem to aprove much of this course of action, suggesting the larger originals would be strong...

BTW Aggy!

Seems like you've got far too many 3Speeds now, and as such that HiLusx has been confiscated and readdressed to ClodWorx, UK!
