Just like helis there is a lot to consider. I plan on getting one sometime before summer. That will give the Traxxas some ground time.

does your wife read RR?
Sometimes... she usually reads the ones I post in. Yes I get scolded some, because I'm not always polite.

Hey nitro_joe,

Just lookingat the club photo again and I spotted a Warthog! Crawlin' with Master Chief - that would rock

(I forget which company does the "Warthog" shell(different name & slightly different looks OK Microsoft & Bungie, is it HPI maybe?)

Tach.

Airtronics is selling a 'Crawler' version of their RDS8000 2.4 gHz air tx -- with the throttle stick gimbal also sprung to center. It's for rear-steer crawlers.

It seems the main reason to spring the t-stick to center might be to make it easier to find with the thumb. Other than that there'd be no difference in functionality, except for certain dual-motor driveline configurations. I'll do the rear-steer upgrade to the AX10 after it comes and use a Stylus to control it.

Yea the RC trucks can also get "VERY" expensive indeed. I did not have a rock crawler but had a pimp savage, alu rims custom, frames, titanium tranny, all kinds of rediculous stuff on it, was around 2-3K somewhere, don't miss it though now. RC Helis are the best of RC period, there is no contest imho.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

No argument there, but variety is the spice of life, eh?

We can't ever have too many toys, especially RC toys.

Fine lookin' truck, BTW.

I thought about the AX10. Read about how many of them are around, decided I didn't want what everybody else had. Plenty of other good ones out there.

Not yet but soon. This is the one I am going to get.

The reason is I will be able to use my 3s 2200 batteries in it. It has a large enough spot on top of the trany for my batteries to fit, and be protected by the chassis. Wasn't my first choice but good enough.

I don't know what servos ESC or motor yet, but I know I will be using my 7c heli radio. I'm also going to have them exchange the transmission to the same one with the dig setup and possibly rear steer later on, so the more channels the merrier. I have an idea for changing the left gimble for centering and easily removable for heli flying, if I need to go that route.

Finally... I ended up with this crawler. RC4WD Rock Rider with rear dig, Castle Sidewinder ESC, Integy 55 turn lathe motor, Hitec 5955 stearing servo, Hitec 645 dig servo, 3s 2200 20c battery and controlled by my 7c heli radio. The body panels are made from a cookie sheet.

I bought a Venom Creeper last weekend and so far have just been able to run it around in the house but it is loads of fun. For the price it does pretty good.
