  4. my user name is from the aussie slang name for my 2 real life cars , holden vn commodores , one is a 1989 3.8lt v6 fitted with a powerdyne supercharger and the other is a 1990 5 lt v8 calais , we commonly call them '' commodes '' , '' dunnydoors '' and '' commiedoors '' ahh amongst other things ! lol on a side note , im commiedoor on most web sites , except for an american gun site because they wouldnt allow the '' commie '' part of the name on it as it could be associated with communism ??
  5. i have a superclod , different shocks and no rear steer , and a codzilla modded to the max running a traxxas 14v twin motor esc .. its like chalk and cheese ..if i want to just run around the dirt parking lot aross the road ..the super clod is fine and fun .. but if i want to rip up the sand dunes at the beach .. nothing beats the clodzilla .. it depends on what i want to do ..

  13. looks a bit like a red poison arrow frog .. they have red bodies and black running ( hopping ) gear .
  14. just finished up the resto on 3 buggies , tamiya a wild one , a marui galaxy and a marui samurai .. not much of a problem really till you work out that the bench is covers with bits of red roll cages .. all 3 have red cages !!! .. mixed in to all that was the old red stuff i was replacing ... found out you can get a bit muddled late at night after a few ales ... was left seeing red !
  15. the samurai with it's new clothes and decals .. just waiting on the'' rare as rocking horse used grass '' driver to turn up in the post ..
  16. the wild one is finished .. w00t .. period decals and all . not much left over , only the old red cage and other red bits .. cutting out the driver cockpit was a pain .. thenagain the whole body was , its so fiddly and flimsey . ..
