I've been slowly working on a scratch built ESP Clodzilla 3 style chassis. Alot of RC forums seem kinda dead at the moment. RCMT, Tamiyabase and even Tamiyaclub to a degree, seem to have slowed down. I dunno whats up.

Cool hopefully we will get to see a build thread? Agree especially tamiyaclub I have noticed the last few years less and less activity. Hard to tell I think facebook has something to do with it have never seen the point of posting a build on there within a few days you have to scroll all the way down again it just gets lost and less people see it #-o

Forum build thread is there forever so to speak 8)

You know, I've never done a build thread. I always thought my stuff was not up to snuff, especially with some of the great work on here and Tamiyaclub. I have seen a few new members lately on Tamiyaclub, but alot of long term members seem to be dropping off.

Me and a lot of other members on here would love to see your Clodzilla build go for it 8) :popcorn:

Where to start??

Been supporting both kids racing MTB every couple of weeks.

Just got back from vacation. Itinerary:

San Simeon/Hearst Castle
Grenade engine on car
Pick up loaner and continue vacation
Monterey Bay Aquarium
Mother-in-laws in Gold Beach Oregon
San Francisco

Then spent three days getting house ready for mom's 70th party

Trying to recuperate.

Starting to look at replacement parts (aftermarket probably) for the new-to-me Losi JRx2.

Racing again this weekend.

Clods have been on the shelf for the last year as the scale trail rig bug has bitten me hard. Plus building a scale garage. Still pop on here to see what is going on.

My computer puked its hard drive 2 months ago and I'm still waiting to get it back up and running. You don't realize just how reliant you are on technology until you don't have it anymore. :?
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Don't ever think that mate. I'm always happy to read what others are doing, no matter how fantastic or routine it is! A lot of my threads are just as much about me recording the build for my own purposes. I like to look back at what I did when and how I did it. I have a shocking memory, so I list part numbers or put links in to parts I used for reference. I have a thread on my buggy racing and I don't think hardly anyone reads it, but that is definitely a thread for me. I like to record my racing performance over time and enjoy reading back over it.

Just post it up!
