Clod buster crawler conversion kit
A few years ago before rock crawling become popular my dad received a crawler conversion kit for his clod buster and the suspension travel is insane. Mine is almost there it has oil filled shocks and a hand made chassis. I would just like to find a conversion kit or a build someone did with one. It's perfect it's a moa with front and rear steering and I even hand made servo mount/protectors. I think the motors in it are fine. I would like to upgrade to steel gears in the transmission. I think I'm also going to use my dx6i air transmitter to independently control the front and rear steering.

aluminum gears ina clod crawler isnt that great of idea from what ive heard from people using them, just use to the "stock" gears they are just fine(other then when you try to bash it with both axles locked, then everything can break no matter what you do lol).
but yea clods do have alot of crawling capabilities aslong as where your crawling isnt souley meant for 2.2 rigs and under lol and they deff are fun
here is my Clodzilla 4(my crawler)
this picture make me want to go back up there where i took this(Dorena Lake here in Cottage Grove Oregon) its drained because they are putting a hydroelectric dam in, so crawling all summer long there on the shore nice huge rocks and some nice big mossy rocks too

Here are a couple sites I like for the clod.
I tried converting my Clod into a crawler, but I just didn't like it as much as a basher. I got a diff-lock kit for it which worked great going up hills, but I couldn't steer! I ended up getting a HPI King Crawler instead and left my Clod as a basher.
