No sure what that is. It looks custum made. I looked on Clodparts.com but none of them match this chassis. The lower links look well made though and are really nice looking. Alos, can you get a picture of the wheel wideners? I don't think i have seen those before. They look like they are 12mm-23mm enxtenders to fit those wheels.

Very nice! I am looking to build a clod crawler right now. I have sorta missed my super since I took it apart to build my sons truck.

No idea on the chassis, does look to be a very well made custom. The lower links are very cool also.

There were a few companies that made the 12-23mm wideners in the past Jeff. The ones I used to have were odd in that they used a 24mm nut on the outside instead of 23.

Yeah, I have a pair of DACE adapters on my MGT that take the 23mm hex but have the 24mm hex nut to lock the wheel down. They are super rare now.

Yes I used the same tool to take wheels off that I used on my losi 5ive t. So I'm thinking this is too well done to be hand made .just must be really old conversion? What do you think is worth? I was going to sell it but I think i fell in love lol

Its a Clod Mod Racing chassis. Seems they went out of business a few years ago. I only know by way of picking up the same chassis on ebay and it still had the decals on it. I've since removed the decals and had it powder coated.

I do like those wheels though, what kind are they?

I'm wondering if it is an early prototype from many years ago from RCguy.com. I remember them sending me a unique Razor racing chassis they never actually released when my Gecko chassis was very late from them.

I only found a few vague references to Clod Mod racing, I'm guessing they didn't stay around long. The chassis seems pretty nice, but I'm not sure I'm even keeping mine. I'm something of a noob at this having been out of the hobby for many years and I bought it without really knowing what it was. So I'm building it as an exercise/practice. If I really like it, I may keep it, if not, I'll sell/trade it for something else.

Thanks for the info on those wheels. I bought some for mine, but in my noobiness, I got the wrong size. They look pretty pitiful on the chassis :oops: Maybe I'll get a set like you have for my Time Capsule, and put the stock Clod wheels on this thing.
