  • Ride of the month winner September 2012

    Well another close on that came down to the wire but TamiyaTony squeaked it out . Huge thanks to our sponsors for there support Super Shafty (this month) Fatboy and Cow R/C

    i talk to Tony about his truck and here is what he had to say
    This particular Clod I've had for about two years give or take and started out with a lot of Bullhead parts. I systematically transformed it into a complete stock Clod Buster and have added part after part as they became available. Yes it has been run up until very recently. In fact, here's a great video of it bashing through the dirt a few months ago:

    I will probably shelf it now that it has won the ROTM contest as well as been featured in the October 2012 issue of RC Driver magazine. I am currently in the process of another build which will be even more outrageous!

      Truck looks amazing. The tires almost remind me of the 73" goodyears that some of the old school 1:1's ran back then.

      Thanks to all that voted for my truck! Oh and I forgot to mention, it has full ball bearings throughout. You need that to haul that kind of weight around haha. It's no rocket that's for sure but it'll crush anything in its path. I look forward to showing you guys my next build. I promise it will impress.
