Desktop Rock Crawling Yeah Baby!!!

Check this out my desktop rock crawler. It has a 4" wheelbase with 6" overall length, so I'm not getting hung up on any domestic obsticales, these things are soo cool. I just wish they were remote control and not "point and shoot". Heck I already modifed my coils to make it flex more. They are die-cast so that helps with it not being remote controlled.

Wouldn't it be cool to build a full-scale replica of that thing? [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: Desktop Rock Crawling Yeah Baby!!!

Too fun, My buddy Nate and I raided the local walmart and bought all they had(5) We already started adding mods to them.... cut all unnessary frame off, cut the body corners for more tire room,I cut my springs down to have a lower CG and more wheelbase,siped the tires with a razor blade,and trimed the lower link mounts on the axle to ease the binding.....all that mad a big improvment in it's performance [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
