  1. I prefer carbon over alloy. Alloy ones tend to bend in a crash, while carbon doesn't. I have a lot of alloy parts on most of my cars, but none of them has alloy shock towers or a-arms due to them bending or breaking other parts instead of the original plastic versions which flex before breaking.
  2. Do I need a special speed controller or transmitter? Something with low speed mode or auto brake? No special transmitter necessary. ESC, brushed ESC with drag brake, HobbyWing Quicrun 1080 is widely used. When going brushless a sensored setup is advised, HobbyWing Xerun AXE is a fantastic crawler specific system. Do you need more than 2 channels on a transmitter? Independent front and rear steering or twin motors? Depends what you want, standard 2 channel can be enough. I have 5 channels in use on my TRX4 1 steering 2 throttle/brake 3 2-speed 4 winch 5 lights Are ‘wheel’ transmitters still the popular choice? Personal choice, a lot of variety is seen on crawler/scaler events what motor would you use if not supplied in whichever kit I buy.. do the supplied ones meet the standards required? Brushed, somewhere in the 35t/45t range, some people prefer even higher 55t/80t motors. Brushless, somewhere in the 1800-2300kv range is what I use Is high suspension travel the be all and end all of crawling? Too much travel can actually hurt performance
  3. Robbed the BEC from my TRX4 as that one is currently out of order and installed it in the Clod. So far so good, and it runs fine, will be running it some more in the weekend. Next step is going to be a lexan body so I don't trash this one
  4. Hi @J@mes those are 3d prints to lock the rear steering. They work really great. I replaced the RX, but the issue persists, I probably need a BEC for the servo, going to install one soon.
  5. I have a TRX4, started as the Tactical Unit but I removed the difflockers and a lighter body, so basically a Sport with 2 speed now. Performs fantastic, had pretty heavy 1/8 SCT setup in it for a while, and handled that without a sweat, no damage whatsoever. Was in doubt between TRX4 and SCX10 II, but Axial parts support around here is really bad, so that helped me make the decision to go for the TRX4.
  6. Got the anti rotation brackets and arch fab bumpers mounted. Also installed some 3d printed lockers for the rear steering and cleaned up the wiring, only to find out the RX I used is defective. On the bench and smooth surfaces it works fine, on rough surfaces it shuts itself down and won't turn back on
  7. I had the same with my Xerun motor, then someone gave me the tip to first add more solder to the existing connectors and heat it up. That did the job for me and I was able to remove the connectors.
  8. Received the Arch Fabrication servo mount bumpers last weekend, now I need to find the time to install them. But I forgot to order a set of servo savers/arms, which ones are recommended when running a dual servo setup?
  9. Went for a nice clean look! Also had it's first test runs around the neighborhood, but it had a lot of issues with steering. Steering one side is fine, but zero to none steering to the other side. Been trying a lot with no results, with all wheels off the ground it steers fine both ways. Apart from that, it is a lot of fun, already got some dents in the rear bumper from wheelies So I ordered the first custom parts, a pair of Arch Fabrication servo mount bumpers
  10. That module sounds great, really need to look into that
  11. Started on the body last weekend, decided to go for a yellow body. Also the metal anti rotation brackets have arrived thanks to @whahooo, thanks again! I have just started with primer on the main body.
  12. Yeah, only had a short test run, but already the most fun car to drive in my collection! Decided to go with a nice yellow body, been a bit busy lately and hope to put on the first coats of primer somewhere this week. Same here, has been on my wish list for years.
  13. Had some time to finish up the chassis. The metal axle braces were a pain to mount, but got them on in the end. Took it for a test run in the living room, and what a fun to drive a Clod! Steering needs some work, but it works. I also had some ideas for the body but not made a decision yet.
  14. I received the kit last friday and started working on it yesterday. Done the basic steps for the chassis and started on the axles. The diff step took me way longer than expected, thought I was missing 2 of the pins holding the spider gears in place, but they were stuck inside the spacers which are used for the motor screws, took me a while to find that out But man is it huge when you are used to "regular" 1/10 cars like onroads, buggies and crawlers
