Re: Extreme Kyosho Monster Tuber Build

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...

Re: Axial Monster Jam Gravedigger

Took a good hard look at this truck and still fighting the temptation... I really like that it's CLOD sized in dimensions right out of the box. I do like the tube frame and overall look as well. I've never owned an AXIAL but from what I read on the net the general feeling is that when it comes to t...

Heck yea if those servos work out let us know because they would be perfect to stock up on for mud and snow trucks!

Re: Servo Savers?

I do not run them on several of my trucks - I have broken a few servo gears over the years but only when going outside my realm of "normal" driving. My Clods and crawlers are all using relatively cheap servos though, some just plastic geared. If getting more than 1ft. of air off a jump is a possibil...

Yes I was running 2s and 3s...2s mostly. I sold off my last useable batteries with another truck so I am really due for a pair of 2s and also a pair of 3s 4000-5000 lipos :)

Re: From scaler, to mud truck, and finally to monster!

Hey guys I haven't been online as much lately, but I will get some more pics of this truck up because I swapped a couple things around like paint and a bed cover...haven't driven it much though I still need some decent batteries and charger to run longer than about 5 min. at a time lol.
