WWhiskey's project

Post by WWhiskey »

Thought I'd get a thread started for my clod.
It got stripped down recently and I'm awaiting the Serpent eagle chassis for it,, Any day next week I imagine!
also have the upright servo mount on the way and a new servo saver! (MY FIRST) I've been lurking around here for a few days and decided I better get one!
got a new radio for it today , spectrum DX4C, I have a super rooster for my ESC still and a hitec HS-605BB servo for the front so far,, still need to get a servo for the rear !
The body is from my Maxx Stone Crawler I bought, It got me back into playing! It hasn't broken yet and my 8 year old Nephews beat the crap out of it for three days!
I hope to have my original Clod soon, I built it while in Germany in the 80s, It has lots of decals all in German!
the first pic is in germany at a car show, hard to tell but that was my first clod on My S-10 and a case of CL

My current Clod before tear down!

And My idea for the new truck

anyone Know who or how to get a custom Body built?
I'd like to get a replica of my bigger toy!

Hi there and Welcome to board! I like your idea and body choice for your project. The only guy I know of and he goes by Pardonmyn00b. He is an expert builder. Do a search for his user name. He might be able to build you something. I think he built something similar to your idea a few years ago. I will try and find the build thread. He is on a lot of the forums out there so be prepared t see a lot of results. :wink:

Otherwise RJ Speed might still make a Power Wagon body.. if a search brings nothing up search for RC Car Kings, hobby store in MN, call them and see if they have one or can get one..

Started tearing the axles down last night, as well as putting he Eagle chassis together!

No instructions by the way!
Although the side plates have umpteen hundred holes in them,, I had to drill a new one for the body mount! Lol


Now that I've taken over the dining table for a week or two, I'm sure my wife will want to eat on it!
