Default Kits For Crawling

Available crawling kits in the local hobby shops are the following:
Tamiya TXT-1, TLT-1 Rockbuster, TLT-1 Max Climber, Clodbuster, and recently released 3 Speed Transmission Ford F-350 High-Lift. If you know of other RC crawling kits, kindly post them. The TLT-1 kits are friendly conversions to scale up-size. The Clodbusters and Jaggernauts have differentials adaptable to chassis modifications. Other brands like the Traxxas E-max are also suitable for conversions to crawlers.

This is the field in RC activities wherein Lock Differentials is commonly set and that speed is not needed.

standard crawlers use 35t, 55t, 65t motors, the higher the number the slower it goes ofcourse more torque. the most popular brands for crawling are the integy lathe and the eagle racing lathe motors. they cost around $19 to $21 USD.

this was the clod chassis i assembled before selling it to Racenut. it uses a Juggernaut 2 chassis with a custom 4 link system and bigbore shocks.

lol, if you owned one of those would you actually crawl with it? bling dont usually go up hills and rocks ... they are meant to be on the shelf!

anyways, if you want ultra performance then go with a stick chassis or an NN and pay a fraction of the price and leave than bling in the dust!
