Hi all

I'm a new joiner to the site. I joined after a tip off on Tamiyclub about Clodtalk. I live in the UK and got into the rc car world 18 months ago. Found it a nice relaxing past time on an evening to unwind.

I'm building a clod. I've also a Tamiya buggy and a lunchbox. I'm slightly modifying my Clod. It's the stock chassis but I've lowered it down a little using different shocks. stock chassis has been modified to lower the clod. Intend on running dual esc and dual lipo. It's a work in progress at the mo!

Being my first clod so far my advice has been from TC but with a good recommendation I was pointed to the existence of clodtalk for some specialist info on all things clod :)

Cheers!

Buggyjam

I'm new to this board. I just took my Clod Buster out of storage. It was unused for about 12+ years. I have get new batteries and tryout my controller (Futaba Magnum Junior). This was my first real RC truck. So I'm relearning this all over again. I wanted to use this just in my backyard or maybe on the beach.

Welcome!
You can definitely build one heck of a crawler out of a clodbuster.
There's lots of guys on here that have done it that should be able to help you out.

I've been meaning to join this forum for a while. I've been a forum member at RC10talk for a while and decided to join here as well since I always had a love for the monster trucks. I've been working on a custom Clodbuster for a while now and I'm hoping to share my experiences and gain some knowledge about the building and setup of these trucks. I've been into the rc hobby off and on since the late 80's. I have around 40 cars and trucks in my collection. Most are vintage 80's-early 90's with the exception of a vxl 4wd Slash, Stampede, and an AE 4.2 Factory Team truck. I have plans for more modifications to my current clod and putting together some ideas for a future custom clod build. Also, the scaler/crawler scene has finally started to catch my interest so I've been looking into that as well. I figured all of this might be well suited to this forum and I'm looking forward to hearing from everyone.

Welcome!

That's a very nice looking truck! 8)
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Greetings fellow Clod fans, I also found Clod Talk thru RC 10 Talk so I prowled around for a few days and decided to join up.

I started out with a used Super Clod about six years ago and have since rebuilt a hurtin' Bullhead for my bashing buddy to run[using a mix of Bullhead parts and some parts from my old Super Clod]. Now I'm almost done building myself a modified Clodzilla 2 and working on building up a Clodbuster for my wife to run.

Also have a few Traxxas rigs, Bullet, Rad 2, Hawk 2 and a Blue Eagle LS-2 conversion. Three E-Maxx and 3 T-Maxx. An E-Maxx each for myself[ modded out 3906], my wife[brushless 3905] and our daughter's nears stock wide Maxx 3906. Then my wife's fully restored Pro 1.5 T-Maxx[ just need to paint the body] ,my 2.5 T-Maxx and another 2.5 T-Maxx that I'm prepping for an Electric conversion with an 880 series motor.

Then there is the wife's mildly modded Sand Scorcher, which should be ready for testing very shortly.

And that brings it down to my Original [rear motor] Kyosho Optima and an old Kyosho Lazer ZX-R, a basket case Savage 21 and Mini Monster Gt 3.0 project. And a couple of old carpet racers sitting in pieces in a shoe box[one associated, one Tamiya].

And if all that isn't enough, I also have over 200 unbuilt or partially built 1/24 and 1/25 scale model cars and trucks.

My lifetime race car project[32 years so far] one 1968 Dodge Dart 2 door sedan, my driver, an '89 Dakota pick up and my 4x4 project, an '84 Dakota extended cab.

Luckily, I'm also a serious insomniac so all of this stuff keeps me busy and my mind on maximum overdrive at all times.

Any questions?

About your RC dedication?..... nope... you got a good wife there to keep watch over you.

Only question I would have is how well are you dealing with Fiat owning MoPar?

Thanks, She's definitely a keeper. 26 years so far.

And I'm not just RC dedicated either, I've been a full on gear head for as long as I can remember, I am the Manic Mechanic. I would lose my mind if they ever ban infernal combustion engines. :lol:



As far as the Fiat/ Mopar fiasco, I couldn't care less, I likes my mopars old and crusty, 50s, 60s,70s are my thing. They can cram the computerized nightmares, I only drive the newer crap because its so hard to find any affordable older stuff now thanks to the crush cars legislation that the big four cried for up here in Canada, I guess they couldn't sell their new junk fast enough to satisfy their greed.

I do have one question. I've noticed a few guys have their location listed with their usernames, etc... but I can not figure out how to add that to mine, how do I go about it?
