Default Tamiya Clodbuster Retro Racer Mod Clod

Listing for sale my Clodbuster. This is a 110% all original clod. Tires were never Glued. The body has been painted Tamiya Metallic blue about 20 years ago. This has spent most of it's life in a closet, and the past few days on my bench. I have been tossing and turning over building this truck as a vintage racer for my son and myself to enjoy. I don't think I have the stomach to hack up such a nice/ perfect older truck. I haven't dissembled it to give it a re-grease/ cleaning yet... I do have the radio tray and mechanical speed control, however I didn't snap a photo.

*EDIT Ended up throwing in a EVX2/ titan 550 motor combo, Solar D722. Swapped the stock springs for a set of Traxxas GTR Big Boars. Glued up the tires. Replaced the chassis with a custom chassis. Great Race chassis, or you can modify to setup as a crawler. Added a triangulated 4 Link setup, with about a 3" strech. Lowered about 1", Stock width. Custom rear lockout as well as bumper/servo mount_tierod allows you to dial toe, and lower links allow you to dial castor, both front and rear. Modded the Knuckles and C's.... If anyone is looking for a clod racer/ basher, let me know. Need $650 shipped. Can run 4s, i've been running 3s, and while it is fast, the chassis can no doubt handle 4s. I have the battery mounted in the upper/ over the front tiresposition, however, you can swap it into the middle bottom plate for a lower COG. Super flexible setup.

New Update

Swapped out the Solar servo for a Brand new Savox 1230. Swapped the ESC/Radio plate and the battery plate. ruck currently has K5 body...

Another Update!!
Went to the Hobby shop and picked up 2 new titan 550 motors from an E-Revo... I also picked up 2 castle Sidewinder 3 with sensored 1406 5700kv combo's! Truck is an absolute beast Brushless. So I can now sell this many different ways.
