My first Clod, Updated - Son Uva Digger Tribute

Recommended Posts

I've fitted some new body mounts and dropped the Hoonicorn tribute right down and I still have the lift kit fitted... I think it looks better, perhaps it needs raising up a half inch... But now I have the option!

I've discovered something very strange with the front servo - given a bit of encouragement it waggles.... Check this out!

New heat fins arrived in the post this week... fitted to the rear motor... fingers crossed that helps with the super hotness...

Finally my new body shell and decals arrived and I can build the monster truck tribute I wanted from the beginning... but the shell doesn't quite fit and so I've had to trim the chassis a bit...

Paint and decals finished... The decals aren't the most accurate or best fit - but it's going to be bashed, so I'm not too precious...

I think I now almost have my dream clod buster!

They are really good - but I've fitted the JC golden years tyres and tribute wheels with the full foams inside - and although the shocks are great, the tyres make it a little bouncy still... Not great for big jumps. but for stoppies, wheelies and bicycles - awesome!

I think I'm going to go on the hunt for some fake monster jam style exhausts like on this 1:24 toy, but I have no idea where to start... any ideas anyone?
