Recommended Posts

Today i got 2 Sets of Pro Line Planetary Casecovers for my Clod.

I thought they are Scalesccessouirs that fit on any wheel. I thought they had a Locknut in it because a while ago i saw some Covers with a Locknut in it, but they where 3D printed, expensive and ugly (because of the 3D Finish....)

 

Now how do i get use out of that Covers that i`ve ordered? There is no Way to mount theese.....

Should i glue some Nuts in tit via Epoxy?

Schould i rdill a Hole in my Clod Rim?

Should i put some adheisive Putty in it and press it onto the screwd on Nut?

I use these on Clod wheels from time to time, shame they discontinued them...

I just drill 2 holes in the stock Clod wheel & adapter that an M2x12 screw will thread in and hold the cover to the wheel.  Works great and I like the lool.  Here are a few examples.

Wow! Really nice looking examples of what can be achieved with RC Monstertrucks. Is the Bigfoot an Axial truck?

Thank you!  The Bigfoot is actually a TXT-2 Agrios.

Ok, then i will drill 2 holes in, I was afraid that that could weaken the Wheel. (i never drill holes in things that scould be sturdy)

The wheel will be fine.  Just make sure you drill with the adapter on and make sure you miss the mounting pins.  You want the screw to grab both the wheel and the adapter.

With Adapter you mean the Wheeladapter from the Clod?

 

So i have to drill Holes into the Rim AND the Wheeladapter.....

Yes, the stock black adapter.  You can drill just the wheel, but you'd only be able to catch a few threads and would bottom out on the adapter.  I drill both to catch more thread.

Has anyone purchased the Crawfords suspension rod setup? I purchased it, but then noticed that the size limit of shocks is 100mm, mine are 113mm, so I didn't even bother to try put it on the Clod, is it an easy install? Not sure what to do with the rods now, bought a few other things off him too.

Ive use the CPE links on a few trucks,  they work well and are good quality.  You can use 113mm shocks if you want, but it will throw the geometry off a bit.  You can always put spacers on the links to get it back to where you want it.  Honestly, I think 113mm shocks are too long for a Clod, 100-102mm is the way to go.  Not sure what you're planning on doing with it, but the stock E/TMaxx shocks are the perfect length for a Clod and you can get them cheap (~$30 for a set of 8).
