I am really going to have to get my BlackFoot back together. I have Blu-Line rims to put Clod tires on it.
Oh please do. I would love to see your Blackfoot with those 66's on it! Post it here if you want.

Re: TamiyaTony's Monster Beetle (2015 re release) Thread

I’ve seen metal parts before years ago on eBay but thought they were gone. Lol Apparently, there was a guy who produced a ton of orv aluminum parts under the company name .50 Caliber. He then sold all the files and rights off on eBay. It would appear that the parts being sold now are based off of h...

Where did you get all the alloy parts? Your MB looks amazing. Thanks Juice. The aluminum parts are found on ebay stores. They're not cheap, but they offer strength and bling factor. Here's some links to a couple different choices: http://stores.ebay.com/cooper813store/ http://stores.ebay.com/rcgosh...

I have the Traxxas 12T and XL5 esc running on my Monster Beetle with no problems at all. That combo is stupid fast!

TamiyaTony's Monster Beetle (2015 re release) Thread

Hi all. So I know I haven't been around much, (life gets in the way) but here I am back in the hobby and with something other than a Clod Buster. :shock: :lol: But have no fear, it's still Tamiya.

Re: ironcorn's 1987 Clodbuster (rescue and restoration)

Nice job on the rescue/restoration! I wish I live in Japan for a week! Nice score on the complete body set. For the decals, I would guess some of them would be easy to find, but the one on the front quarter in front of the rear wheel is hard to make out. Anyone know what it is? To my eyes, from top...
