I forgot to add this to my showroom. This is the result of a bullhead made from left over parts.


I had nearly enough bits to build a complete bullhead from the spares I had from previous Bullhead and Clod restorations. Only I had locked diffs so had to buy two gear sets to get rid of the cheap integy alloy spools in the boxes.Then I decided to buy a Crawford Performance Engineering Carbon Chassis Kit from the States, beautifully made and quality kit but no instructions, and half of it comes pre-built so you would think it would be a synch but guessing were all the imperial hardware goes isn't as easy as it seems. Still, once it is all together it is a nice bit of kit.



After that I brought two adjustable clod motor mounts from Ebay and some 15 tooth Robinson Racing onions to go with them, some slight modification was required to get the onions in the gearbox as the motor has to be mounted in the correct position on the mounts before it is mounted to the gearbox. I also ordered an set of Emaxx shocks as these are recommended by CPE and work nicely on the lightweight chassis. I also found some 1' ESP Clodzilla wideners locally second hand for cheap that was a stroke of luck. It also has alloy front knuckles.



I brought two Turnigy 80a 4000kv brushless combo's and they work really well with the truck with only a little 'clod stall' on take off as both motors decide what direction they are going in.



It runs great on 2s lipo with a reasonably quick pace but on 3s it is a an uncontrollable animal and very squirrely when you put the boot up it and top speed is too fast for a clod lol.



-How the kit comes.

Awesome Clod you have there. I love my own Terminator, it is my absolute favorit RC. I am wondering if I should build another one based on the Zyck Diablo chassis.

How do you like the E-maxx shocks?

You can check my Terminator here:

Thanks Klausen, I love your Terminator too, you've done a fantastic job with it!
The Zyck Diablo would be nice, I wouldn't mind building another monster either! Considering they were $20 for eight and are quite plush on this I am happy with them so far, I could be persuaded to get some powerstrokes or something else though
