Re: Stock Clod Hop-Ups

I'm doing a little mod of the stance by doing an old trick. Simply swap Clod wheel axles with TXT wheel axles. This will give a wider stance with no need for wheel wideners. Doing this requires you use TXT hubs. TXT wheel axle part number: 58280 http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b511/kingklod/IMG_...

Re: KK2 Remix.....

I mounted the body a while back and forgot to add pictures here.

Re: Stock Clod Hop-Ups

I started picking at this project again to try to wrap it up. I picked up one of the new JConcepts Chevy 90s body. I painted it a metallic purple and silver and added some decals. I love the color combo. I am now waiting on some custom decals for the name. http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b511/ki...

Re: *** Situation Seems Critical ***

^^That's actually a pretty good idea. Kind of like an online cars & coffee meet. We could call something like Clods & Coffee and do it on Saturday mornings. It would be one thread, where all who show up can chat and post pictures and such. And maybe during the chat session, a topic or build may stri...

Those shock mounts are pretty cool looking! :thumbsup:
Cool, thanks! I run them on my KK2 Clod and my other daughter's semi-stock Clod.

Stock Clod Hop-Ups

Every time one of my kiddos turns 5, I build them a Clod. I've only built one for my oldest daughter. My second born daughter just turned 5, so now it is her turn! So, let's start this build thread.... 1) Get Clod axle parts... http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b511/kingklod/IMG_3760_zps17ism40n.j...

Re: Project Max Max

I know what you are talking about now. I'd have to think about it. If I did it, I could anticipate a number of people stating its a copy.

Re: Project Max Max

I'm not fillowing you. Are you talking about adding weight to the bottom like other chassis builders are doing?

Re: Photobucket

This would be good to know. I use photobucket, but I'm in no way married to it.

I forget if there is a limit on how many attachments you guys can have (I don't have a limit .. lol).
Last I knew though, we liked attachments, as that means no lost pics from dead links and such.

Re: *** Situation Seems Critical ***

Obviously you're free to do as you like, but for what it's worth I like the exclusivity of monsters only.

If I want crawler stuff I'll go to a crawler site.

Just my couple of pennies.

Re: Project Max Max

So I lied a little bit........ :nana: I've been running the truck a bit in the AR60 axle setup. I really dig the truck, but I have noted a few changes I wanted to make to the chassis. I've been tweaking the CAD to get the shock travel and link actuation just right. AR60 http://i1289.photobucket.com/...

Re: KK2 Remix.....

I finally had some time to make something for me! Ever since I saw Avenger in Arlington, TX with a truck body, I knew I had to have one. I used MCI decals. I chose to go with internal decals this time. I've never done it before and I think it came out great. Not too shabby for an amateur. http://i12...

Re: Project Max Max

Sorry folks. This project came to a halt. I've been traveling a lot for work and it hasn't left me with much room for anything else.
