I recently resurrected a few of my older clods.... Currently working on more of a "racer" type clod out of spares.... I took an all original "vintage" clod I had in the closet for the past 24 years, modded the cases went to 19T pinions, threw in an EVX2 and titan 550's. On 3s it is "fast for an old clod" on 4s its a bit faster.... For some reliable fun I say the EVX2 is great.

So a small update... at the swap meet that I posted about, I found a Novak Super Rooster and one of the cheap Asian dual motor ESCs. Since then, I also purchased a new 3s lipo and a JConcepts 93 F250 body. My plan is to use the Asian ESC first, because the Novak is in great shape and looks so nice in its original box ( :roll: ) and use the 3s. I need to decide on an old school paint scheme because my skills are limited, and mount the body. I'm also now thinking of some performance changes, but am having a hard time deciding what to do. Money is my biggest hurdle at the moment, with time being a close second. Every time I visit clodtalk, I get so inspired to work on my clod. Then I get home and realize how many other projects I have in the queue. #-o
