    I originally built it as a cold. With 9 tooths and lathes it was too slow for me so I decided to rebuild it with maxx axles and a brushless setup. Its been sitting around my room for the past few months. I could use the money for other things.

    You'll get everything in the picture except for the shocks, bed spread, chair, and carpet. Everything should be there to build 2 maxx axles other then custom made housings. I was planning on using jumbo dawgs for tires, but Im including the stockers so that you can use them for mock up. Links on the tuber are included, they are a mixture of alum tube with 8-32 set screws or alum tube with 8-32 all thread. The lowers where bent to clear the tires on the clod axles. Chassis is made mostly of 1/4" brake line that was tack welded with a mig. Now the welds are not the cleanest and could stand to be cleaned up but it worked fine the way it is. Like I said it is tack welded, I only welded the outside as I was excited to get it going the first time around. The chassis is used.

    Here is a picture of how it was setup with the clods.

    I have been looking into getting a RC crawler. Been eyeballing a TLT since seemed like a good value base. Does it include the clod axles?

    I'd assume no since the pic that he said has everything that it comes with has e-maxx axles in it...

    figured I'd double check maybe they were collection dust and might be willing to part with. Avery you seem to know alot about R/Cs. I have been looking at various TLT chassis and such is there anything you would suggest?

    yeah no clods I ended up building another truck with them so this would be chassis number 3. Too many for me to be dumping money into. Tlts are cool, thats the other one I have, but they are on the smaller side. Well compaired to this thing.

    Hmmm, I built this tlt with just a carbon fiber version of the stock chassis and I'd agree that tlt's are fun but they are sort of small...even when they are stretched (this one was about 13" WB).

    If I was to build another one I'd go with clod axles and go larger just because you can do more with it...now depending on how scale you want it to look depends on what chassis you'll go with...if you want to go all out just build a stick chassis clod and be done with it. Go browse around on www.rccrawler.com
    You'll see ;)
