    go for it!its not a difficult build.probably the hardest was deciding on a color sceme and how scale i wanted to make it.still do not know if i will put or make seats for it.i will make it brushless eventually.thanks for your comments!encouragement goes a long way.would anyone know here if the traxxas steel gears for the tranny are a direct replacement for the nylon or will i need to purchase a new tranny altogether when i go brushless?or is there a stronger tranny out there that would work in this that would be a better choice?thanks

            i will try to get some action shots or vid if i can get my wife to take it for me!lol.the way it drives now is much more controllable than when it was stock stampede.the lower cog and longer wheel base and wider makes it a much more predictable ride too.i not pulling wheelies with the brushed motor but still not slow.probably around 30 to 35mph right now.already have gotten a lot of compliments from the neighbors and their kids too!lol.thanks rc4wd for offering such an awsome chassis to build on.taking it in to the local hobby shop to see if i can figure out what length shocks in the back to mount at the top position of the frame.i am guessing somewhere around 130mm but i want to be sure before i buy any.
            really didnt need to make a skid for the front other than to save the paint.i putfuel tubing on the shock shaft to limit so it wont bottom out.

                        well here they are.the clodbuster has matching roof and side panels with the sand rail.alluminum plate that has been fitted and polished.clod crawler has 65t motors and speed control from rc4wd.thanks!they work really well.it also has 4ws and locked diffs which make it almost unstoppable.both are alot of fun to drive.next will be the brushless system for the sandrail.

                              ok,i found out something that im changing.just ordered some new crawler wheels and tires for the clodbuster.tires from rc4wd,2.2 rockstompers,soft.along with gmade 2.2 gt beadlocks.should work better than the stock clod tires.post some pics after they arrive.

                                here is my clod crawler 2.2 with 5 in.links.35t motors,rc4wd tires,and gmade gt wheels.so far working great.took the foams out of the tires,remounted the servos to the axle support braces and installed servo arms instead of the servo savers.may even go with 27t motors and run it more as a racer.
