Hello new here, so I hope I am posting this in the right area. Can anyone tell me what kind of chassis this is in what appears to be a promo shot of a custom clod chassis for j-concepts wheels?

Thanks in advance

First off welcome to the site.


Second of all it almost looks like a cut down stock chassis with a metal brace on the bottom to mount the links. The front Servo mount/bumper is an ebay piece. Maybe they ordered the chassis brace off eBay and modified the stock chassis.

I thought it might be the retro-racer chassis that ZRP is doing... not sure on that though...

Definitely not ZRP Retro Racer mark 1 as I am using mark 1 version on my Clawing Dead build however as Andy says it might be a prototype mark 2 version that has not been released yet. Or as far as I know not released yet.

Contact ZRP Racing on Facebook and ask what the situation is if indeed it is a prototype they can put you on the waiting list :) other than that I don't have a clue my gut feeling tells me it is a total one off custom job.

Let us know how you get on :popcorn:

Wow I have never even heard of Tad Goad I googled but can find very little information on his truck designs apart from the photos metalicclod77 posted. Must be a Facebook only thing maybe :?:

Cool thanks for the link shame there is no information on the retro chassis that he sells. Or maybe sells I'm confused :?

He makes his own race chassis and parts like many of us do, I'm pretty sure this is not for sale... Look up the Tweaked stage 5

He's a member in here Alex, 'TweakedTad' I think. He was the one that posted up the comparison photos in the tyres last year. I think he is quite active on RCMT (or was).

It is a custom build. Nothing special. The upper chassis is based off the old Bennett style add on aluminum rails for a stock chassis. The lower cradle is a repop sassy chassis part.

I am amazed you didn't find more when you googled me. I am the only Tad Goad that I have been able to find. If you check images you will find several of my old trucks.
