Re: Barbarian 2k18 chassis kits now available!

Hey Brett - I have an older Barbarian, and was wondering if you offer any crossmembers that are not circular in shape? Some square shapes ones would be nice, to be able to drill/tap/mount things to a little easier. For one, I don't really like using side mounted body posts (tear bodies easily from m...

Re: Got another Clod

Thanks! If you guys ever see this Clod for sale please msg me and tell me I'll regret it so I change my mind #-o :lol: I see some new RC's coming out and getting the itch, but must resist selling the Clods to fund a new purchase ! I need a higher paying job :cry:

Re: Looking for 17mm hex 2.6 wheels

Would be great if Proline would just offer 14mm and 17mm in the brawlers, and make the backside a bit larger diameter to clear knickles on the big MT's like MAXX's and Savages...like these, but plastic and cheaper https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-TMaxx-EMaxx-17mm-Hex-Alum-Rims-2-6-Hybrid-Riskey-Conc...

Re: Barbarian Chassis Carnage

I'm just digging through threads since I have a Barbarian project in the works...crazy carnage to that thing! So I'm wondering about drilling a few more holes and seeing if I can get just an extra brace set from CPE for this chassis to reinforce it a bit? I've already had some trouble mounting verti...

Re: Clod steering stops

Depending on suspension setup, I've seen where too much steering throw starts to get into lower links/shocks and I thought also I read about the stock axle dogbones not working well and possibly needing cvd's.

Wow what a beast! Any pics next to stock sized Clod or something to get a better idea of the completed size of that monster ?

Re: SFC K's CC-01 Ford Ranger

Cool truck! :thumbsup: I missed this one somehow...I too have an old Ford body like that and been thinking I should do a similar little project since it's a shame to let it sit around, but the wheelbase is so short makes it tough to fit on most trucks.

Re: Got another Clod

Still got this truck (more or less) and looking back it's changed quite a bit since those 1st page shots lol. Just picked up Brawlers for it. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4645/24608448667_2c0a64dd15_c.jpg 20180103_120553 by mrgrimm1 , on Flickr https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4633/27697784929_898ea...

Re: My collection so far...

Very impressive buggies! They really mimic the appearance and suspension design of the full size woods and desert buggies of the 80's and 90's I loved to see as a kid. I've gradually liked seeing these kind of buggies built up more and more over the old RC10's. They just look cool and makes me wonde...

Re: Which wheels fits on Kyosho Mad Kruiser?

From what I googled, the Kruiser hex looks just like any other 1/8 17mm setup. The only real difference I have seen in 17mm hex wheels would be center hole size. Most new wheel designs that are 17mm have the big center hole (which looks like what you need) and every set of Proline MT wheels in 17mm ...

Re: Which wheels fits on Kyosho Mad Kruiser?

Most likely yes...just watch the inside diameter (3.2" is probably the smallest you can fit without hitting the knuckles, etc.) Mot wheels these days are 3.8" so you should be fine. Personally I like the looks of a smaller diameter wheel, and RiskyConcepts RC makes some aluminum wheels that are hybr...

Re: What's Up?

I'm going to post up a pic of my workbench tomorrow so you guys can see what I'm working with - because I have enough parts now to build a truck or 2, and my others are pretty well finished up so I think it's time! :)

Re: Member R/C Gallery!

Haven't really got into my RC's for a few months now...Today I decided to turn the storage room into in area where I can mess with the trucks more. Moved things around, took the doors off the cabinets, and put a couple tables to use that had been folded up for years. Figured I'd snap a few pics of t...
