For 4 bucks for 2 shocks is worth the risk. They look great on this truck! I really like the use of this chassis with the Clod axles.

Yeh that's what I thought when I bought them. TXT-2 shocks are 95mm, so I was looking for something around that length. I scoured Ebay and other sellers before I even thought of HK. They have them in different colours too. I really wanted black, but this was the closest they had.

Here's the full range in 90mm; http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... 85mm+shock

They have them in 100mm too; http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... able+shock

I wish they had some longer versions available, I would get a set for my WK to try out, might work for my clod though.

Mark truck looks... Excellent! :shock: :P 8) =D>

At first I could not understand why you called truck AgriClod and now I know why :oops: #-o looks great and good balance between Clod and TXT-2.

I get the feeling this is your most liked truck in your collection?

Hopefully we will see more TX-C2's built possibly only two in existence at the moment. Maybe Jeff (SFC K) will build one he seems to like the TXT-2 chassis/ Clod axle combo :popcorn:

Thanks Alex! I wasn't sure if the body would work out, but I think it does..... I love the look of it, just need to get it up and running, them I'll know how much I like it! I have to say though that I already like it more than the Clod Factor that gave way for this project. My TX-C is still my favourite truck (so far).

Jeff, Jason's Store have the chassis on Ebay for $31 + $14 shipping..... Go for it!

Finally this truck is a runner! I've been flat out at work for the past 6 weeks or so, but got a bit done today. I ended up just using the electrics from the Clod Factor, except I have used the GP radio so I can switch from 2ws to 4ws. I had a short play with the truck today along with the kids. It didn't last long though as I broke a rear knuckle. I have aluminium knuckles on the front. I think I will put them on the rear as well.

I'm not going to lie. I came in here hoping to see a tractor. But this is pretty cool as well I guess haha.

I think the red looks good. Being against the black helps out with the dulling effect backing it with black has.

This may be one of.... if not the best post/pic I've seen on this site.... and I've sorted through almost all of them...

That is the future of our hobby right there folks, and it's always good to see. :thumbsup: =D>
