I thought the crawlers looked really cool but so do the go fast buggies . I’ve never pieced one together so I like the idea of being ready out of the box but having upgrades available like I’ve been reading on here !
Something like the Axial Yeti can do a reasonable job of both or you could do what the rest of us do and get multiple cars :lmao:

Here's a video of my VSe, the RTR (ready to run version) makes a good starter buggy (mine was an 80% roller) and they're solid out of the box with most the mods being lightweight racing stuff.

Vs my crawler which was RTR and is also good fun but slow

Who makes the dent side body?
Carisma RC, they make 1/24 and 1/10 scale ones (and whole RTR trucks as well). Ordering direct from them takes a while since they're in Hong Kong.

Just got a new motor for my boys scx24. For the price they really are great for kids. And put some new gears in my old losi comp crawler. Was suprised I could still find parts for it.

For my next step in pouring way too much money into a tiny truck meant for beginners I snagged a sweet carbon fiber chassis from Team Garage Hack for my SCX24. Angled transmission skid plate was the main thing I was after but I did get to drop the body a little lower while I was at it.

I haven't had an rc for a few years and thought the TRX was pretty cool when it came out but I like to build my rc's. I seen Traxxas finally made the TRX in a kit form so me and my oldest daughter built it over the winter. It's still running stock electronics but a motor upgrade is in the future. I'm running the axial 69 blazer body on it but just picked up a Gmade military blazer body for it so I can make it like our fullsize.

Just wrapping up this iteration. Most of the parts are from an axial ax10 that I had maybe 10 years ago. Upgraded motor/esc and a bunch of other drivetrain things. Just dumped all the good parts I had into an scx10 frame with some 2.2 tires/wheels from the old crawler I had and bought a body to match my XJ. Seen next to the 4l60e going into my jeepster project on the bench

The Clodbuster was the first hobby grade RC car I ever saw, back in the mid 90's. Need to get one of those someday.
After 30yrs I can still hear the gear noise.

I bought the first one that hit our local hobby shops shelf the day it came in.

Took me a week to build it, then two weeks later I tore it all down to install roller bearings as the plastic donuts wore out.

30 years later, ball bearings are still an optional extra on most Tamiya kits!

I remember drooling over all the Thundertech chassis upgrades and parts for the Clods. I've always wanted one, ever since I was a little kid looking at RC Car Action magazines.
