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...

Also, some servo's run opposite of the norm, but I forget which brands.
Thank you andymac0035.

Re: Clod Mods Photo's added

Thanks. I had to swap D1 and D2 to hook up the linkage. Here's another question. If I wanted to add steering to the rear, how would I get the wheels to turn (steer) in opposite directions. Would I just mount the servo on the opposite side of the rear diff? Thank you.

Thanks for the reply, i'll give it a try.

Clod Mods Photo's added

I've just finished building my first Clod. It's mostly stock but I did add some mods where I felt it was necessary. I added a rear steering lock out, locked the rear diff, aluminum steering arms, axle mounted servo, and XVD's all from CPE. Now I have a question and comment about the xvd's and the st...

Re: Foam insert question

I tried the rubber band method, but I find with decent power the rubber bands twist up and spit out the side. I have shoe gooed the rubber bands in, but now I just shoe goo the tyre t the wheel. I'll give the rubber band method a try once. If it doesn't work I'll try the Shoe Goo., it should work w...

For holes, you only need a couple of 1/8" holes to make a difference.
1/8" thank you.

Re: Foam insert question

putting a rubber band around the inside of the wheel where it mates with the tire? Do I leave it loose or glue it there? Thanks Try loose first. Depending on your truck's power level that may be all you need. I glue the rubber bands on my wheels, as the rubber bands tend to pop out on big jumps and...

Re: Foam insert question

+1 on not gluing the tires. The rubber band trick works perfectly. one trick that I do, as well as others, is to drill a couple of holes in the rims. Drill them on the back part of the wheel (inside of the mid hub of the wheel so you don't see them from the outside). This will allow the wheel to bl...

Re: Foam insert question

I've never used them, but my truck is heavy so I'd probably benefit from them, just to keep the tires at full round. The conventional wisdom is that the tires actually work as part of your suspension with the give in the foam-free tires absorbing some bounce and compression before the jolt even hit...

Me too, just ordered one up. I like the fact you can add a four link later.

Foam insert question

My new Super Clod Buster just arrived. After looking at the tires, I was wondering if you guys use foam inserts in the tires?
