I may be able to get some Tamiya Torque Tuned motors for cheap. Think they would make a difference to how the clod runs?

I personally doubt it, but cheap is cheap, so try em' if you like and let us know the results.

After a season of racing - it was great to get the clod out again I layed out bit a track- sone lawn, a couple of flower beds, some concrete and a dirt section. Grass dust and sand flying all over the place!! You would think after driving really fast stuff the clod would become boring, but it put just as big a smile on my face as ever. Turning through the dirt section with dust flying off the back wheels, the front bouncing and the inside wheel in the air? Fantastic!!!!!

It's happening.. getting some hotter brushed motors for the clod, and maybe some shocks. Will be sure to let you know what happens (hopefully not 2 broken gearboxes!)

Motors in, and turning the right way. Now to see if the new shocks go in..... then a test drive😁

It definitely has more torque, but top speed is identical... But going to charge the battery and then see again.

Well, the torque seems more but the top speed is identical. Think I'll put the stock silver cans back....
