I have this one with buggy champ front wheels and tires mounted on not so visible SRB front suspension.

The Clod is big enough to alter the rotation of the earth depending on the direction its pointed in when you nail the throttle. 

Image result for clod buster ad

Seriously, its about as wide as the Frog or Grasshopper is long. The original Tamiya promo video can be found on Youtube. Somewhere in the first half, it shows the Clod rolling along the beach with the Lunch Box. The size difference is pretty impressive.

Just how big is the clod?

 

The answer should be - How big do you want to make it?

This is an old pic of my stock clod (right) and my modified bullhead (left).

Those Jumob Kongs are massive!   Funny thing is, your fist Clod always seems huuuge.  Once you aquire more and more of them they dont seem so big so you strive to make them even bigger :)

I haven't started building my clod yet but here's a couple of pics of just one of tyres next to a ps4 controller that should give you a bit of a rough idea of just how massive it's gonna be once it's made

On the original promo 52 seconds in there’s a Clod & LB together

1st photo is the most representative of the difference in size, side by side it’s harder to see. They both drive like puddings though 😂

The lunchbox is tiny compared to the clod.

You know, when the clodbuster accelerates, it's not moving forward, it's actually pushing the world backwards.

Hardly a standard Clod but the Gmade Spider conversion is one of the biggest, poor little Hotshot !

stock build looks so dumpy in comparison

presumably this is only the case if it's fitted with a Conrad..?

Presumably. After all, only the mighty Clod Buster could harness the unimaginable power of not only one, but two Conrads.

It's big, but actually smaller that you'd think. 

 

I can put one next to a touring car tomorrow if that helps.

Sure!

 

another thing is if someone has an Arrma outcast/notorious could you put a clod next to that?

Alright, here's the weirdest set of pics of my Clod I've ever taken.

IMG-5770.jpg

From top to bottom: A Clod, a standard Tamiya screwdriver (L), the TT01DRE, and a 7.2 NiMH stick pack. I figured those are probably the easiest things to convey scale.

IMG-5771.jpg

As you can see, the ground clearance under the gearboxes is about 1/2 that of the overall height of the TT. The tires, meanwhile, are taller than a stickpack, but slightly shorter than the screwdriver.

<a href="https://ibb.co/XD0tBxf"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/qCqpGYL/IMG-5772.jpg" alt="IMG-5772" border="0" /></a>

Banana for scale. xD (To be fair, the banana is on the large-ish side of things)

IMG-5773.jpg

Great, now I'm hungry for a banana.

<a href="https://ibb.co/cbZKSbZ"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/z8BWT8B/IMG-5774.jpg" alt="IMG-5774" border="0" /></a>

The overall width of the Clod is a little less than the length of the TT. The trackwidth is about the same as the wheelbase of a touring car.

<a href="https://ibb.co/FgR1jnt"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/cD497xd/IMG-5776.jpg" alt="IMG-5776" border="0" /></a>

You can just about squeeze a stick pack between the tires. A banana, meanwhile, can rest comfortably on top.

Anything else you'd like to see posed on / near the Clod? I can probably mock up something with A4-paper, if you're European. I have some 12" records laying around, don't know if you have one of those to compare...?

I did used to have a picture of the clod and outcast together but I must have deleted all the outcast ones to erase my memory of the terrible time I had with an outcast. 

So here's some with a normal 1/12 lunchbox, and the mighty Terra Crusher.

Which somehow weighs 2x the clodbuster. ( Which equates to 3 planets)

The arrma story is for a different thread. I been off topic a bit last few days.

Jeez! Also, what happened with the outcast? Something with the radio?

As it's your thread, and your question, I'll try and find a few videos of the arrma, post them in the YouTube thread, or maybe even in here as I won't be offending the original thread starter.

Yes the outcast is fast, but if it breaks every time you run it, it's no fun. The clod will last forever.

And also if the outcast looks a bit bigger in the picture, it's a camera trick.

The camera adds 10pounds, to the arrma, that's probably another motor and battery,

You can't add to the infinite weight of the clod, so it doesn't show up on the camera.

And anyway, you can't compare a modern buggy on steroids, to the Daddy of the solid axle.

Warning, this video may contain many curses. I was so frustrated by this time, I wanted to smash it to pieces with a big hammer.

There is swearing, Im trying to figure out how to mute it.

I just want to see how big it is, since I have a notorious
