Re: *** Situation Seems Critical ***

I agree with the name change idea, tho when I see the suggested monstertrucksandcrawlers.com my eye see, and mind reads it as monster-truck-sand-crawlers.com, to compound things, it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue like clod talk does. Now, seeing that I've mentioned a minor, actually, very minor...

Re: The Clodtalk May 2017 Truck of the Month Contest

Having no idea of the work involved, my thought was to put another section like the truck of the month winners in underneath, thing I can't quite work out is weither to just show the winner from the year for the year, which would get fairly boring quickly (atleast for me) or staggered time for the t...

Re: What do you want to see in 2017 for the mt world

from what I see out there, only way to get solid axle is to go old skool clod, or new skool crawler axles

I fully intend to get a g6-01 kit, if only to experience the build, and punish the drive train with a brushless motor and lipo's....

Re: math problem

oh yea, your right, I remember that now, my last job of 10 years had me having to do addition before multiplication, so that threw me. I do recall a math problem in a book way back in school, the book was for students 2 yrs above me I believe. My math teacher handed it to me after I'd mentioned that...

Re: Resurrecting my childhood clod (battery and motor questi

I think for now I'm going to stay near to stock with the truck itself and just upgrade the radio gear. So being the new radio gear is greek to me I have some more questions. 1) The old Futaba steering servo, will it plug into the new esc? I am assuming it will. 2) The battery choice I have listed b...

The new plastics you have from bitd will be brittle also, you can find threads around the web about people that have soaked them in different things to get some to most of the softness back into the plastics, can't recall where, but I'm sure someone here has done the same thing, or can remember read...

Re: Need some recommendations for a new truck

Haven't gotten anything yet, life got in the road, have gotten my LHS to get and put aside a TXT2 agrios kit, but that's as far as that has gone.
