Smile R/C ROCK CRAWLING

Good day. Im rex from the philippines. i love radio controlled cars ever since. I would like to ask tips from you guys on what should I use etc. I am planning of building a radio controlled rock crawler that will be made up of custom brass or copper tube roll cage. actually I had three designs playing in my mind. the body will be made up of thin metal sheets. this will be a 1/8 or 1/7 scale rig. I want it to become different, so I want it gas that will run on high octane gas that could be easily bought from gas stations. I ask you if should I go for gas, nitro, or electric? what is the proper gearing set-up, ratio? should I buy ready made tranmission, or should I made my own? what are the materials? what else should I know? thank you. any response will be highly appreciated.

Wrong thread. You want to go to the Monster Truck thread and there is a crawling thread in there.

Also, check out www.rccrawler.com there is some great info on there.

Good luck.

Thanks,
Casey
