Re: Steering mount Options

I was running hand made ones that mounted to the 'long' side axle brace horizontally, but i ran into some clearance issues with the chassis I use. I ended up leaving the rear like that, but went with a custom front bumper mount in the front to allow for the clearance. I like how compact it is. they ...

Re: Advice needed: Making a super slow clodbuster

not sure what your ultimate plan is for this, with the slow moving clod. if you are not going to try and pull something and need all the torque, you might be able to run the highest gear reduction case you can find in that link, and power it with 380 size motors from a grasshopper. they will run eit...

Re: Steering link clearance?

yeah that will likely occur if the knuckles you have don't have stops built in. The tie link will hit the gear case 'lump'. I suspect you won't have servo travel enough for that to happen though, once you get it all built. In other words, you already have more travel than the servo will provide.

Re: Pro-Line Brawler 2.6'' wheels on Wild Dagger WR01 Chassi

if you can find the barrel nut that fits properly, it should work out fine. I don't know how hard I would drive it but it should be strong enough to cruise around and do some light terrain.

Re: Universal 12mm hex adapters for clod wheels?

i would think you can use the stock clod adapters with a number of washers or spacers on a standard 12mm hex, although depending on the length of the axle, you might need a barrel type nut to reach the threads.

Re: Resurrecting my childhood clod (battery and motor questi

for younger kids, the 2.4Ghz radio from Towerhobbies is a smaller framed radio and pretty lightweight, only requiring 4 AA batteries. helps working the trigger a little easier. still a little tough for reverse for the smallest hands. I have one for my sons that they have used from about 5 yrs old (j...

Re: Double K chassis thread

I don't know how wide the kingclod is for sure, I don't have one. I made my chassis between 3.5" and 4" wide. I forget the exact measurement, but its about a half inch narrower than the c-hubs on the axle.

Re: gearbox grease

i have used white lithium grease for years, but the trick is, just a little!!! put in on the gears in a couple places, and run them around to get completely coated. that's all you need unless you are using bushings, then you can stuff some in the gears behind the bushings.

Re: Reviving my ~1993 clodbuster

don't wire them to the same switch unless it's a double pole, single throw switch, so each circuit is isolated. each esc would need it's own pole.

the castles aren't sensored are they? can't you just swap two of the three wires to get reverse?

Re: wheel choices

I think they mount just like stock, so the axle nut is a 4mm thread size.

Re: Deans Connectors on Clod Motors

it doesn't really matter. Use the deans plug marking for the + and - on the esc side, and connect up the motors on other side however it takes to get them to run the right rotation. you could make the motor wires on that side all the same color and wire them up to run properly. If you have the esc p...

Re: New here. Stock chassis with 4 link plans.

I just joined and also just finished building a low budget clod.

check this link for some ideas, the 4 link setup I used is really similar to a stock chassis mount point.
