I was under the impression that you can't use an air transmitter something to do with ground crystals not being compatible with them is that true? Mine is 2.4 Ghz can you use a air receiver to? If that's the case then all I would need is a motor, ESC, servo and something to monitor the battery voltage.

Err...isn't 2.4 GHZ , just 2.4 GHz? No air/ground incompatibilities? NO CRYSTALS?

FWIW have you guys seen the TRAXXAS Summit? WOW!

2.4 is 2.4. The difference was with the old style transmitters. 72 MHz was air and I believe 50 Mhz was ground, with a couple others in there.

officially no air tx is supposed to be used on the surface however all of my trucks (not crawlers) have 72mhx rx and tx with no issues. they work fine but would have the possibility of interference with other people flying in the area. however i have no idea if 2.4 will link, i imagine it would/ should.

Gimble for a little more money ($15)you can get one rtr with a radio and if you dont like it you can give it away as a gift to someone else.

They are saying the same on the ground forums. Not a problem using air trans in 2.4 gigahertz. So my options are open. Seen another crawler that looks interesting it's a traxxas summit. It's not out yet but soon. I like the idea of independent suspension. Also two speed transmission. Locking and unlocking both differentials from the transmitter, either one or both on the fly.

Sorry TachkyonDriver... Just skimmed your post didn't that you already found the Traxxas. I really like the independent suspension idea. The head on pic of it gives you good idea of the extra clearance.

Amazing little machines. I watched the video clip they look like bugs feeling their way across the terrain.

Husky i don't think its going to be as good. from what i have read tonight about crawlers you need articulation and the traxxas doesn't have as much in the chassis. if you look at the traxxas web site they don't get the wheels switched up much at all and give no specs on deflection. but that being said traxxas has always made a great truck and i'm sure it would work to some degree.

That's a Super, in rc crawling there are three main classes; 1.9, 2.2, and Super. The cost to build a super is substantially more then the 2.2. Also if you start attending local events 2.2 is the most popular and will have the most people running.

thanks Anthony,
so continue please, whats a 1.9 & 2.2 and super? does it have to deal with the wheel size? is 1.9 and 2.2 still 1/10 scale?
thanks in advance

Yes, 1.9 and 2.2 typically are the same chassis (1/10ish), wheelbase, etc. These size relate directly to the size of the wheel or rim, 1.9" and 2.2" respectively. 1.9 is typically used by the "scaler" guys, and 2.2 is the most popular size for "competition" chassis's.

Super is a whole other world that uses "monster truck" size tires that typically come on 1/8th monster truck size chassis's.

1.9 and 2.2 are typically front steer only, especially if you compete where rules require it. However super allows front and rear steering. If you are just playing around in the backyard most 2.2 chassis's like the AX10 can be converted to rear steering as well.

I think a lot of your questions could be answered by reading the USRCCA crawling rules.

from what i have read tonight about crawlers you need articulation and the traxxas doesn't have as much in the chassis.
Not only that, but there is the phenomenon of "forced articulation" with the non-independent axles (live axles??), in that when one wheel on an axle is forced up, the other one on that axle has to go down thus providing grip on that wheel (hopefully!). However, I'd still love a Traxxas Summit

The independent suspension certainly helps in the go faster handling department! (Summit has two selectable gear ratios - on for crawling, the other for hooligan 4 wheelin'
