    I'm building my first Clodbuster to compete in the Reto Class. Just wanted to see what 35T motors and what type of shocks are recommended?

    Thanks!

    New York club runs 35t motors. Nrctpa is limited 45t motors. Everyone else runs stock 27t motors.

    I like the sound of this build. Old school MT that barely will lift the front tires when hitting a car just like in the beginning. What kind of battery and cell limit do you have?

    You should provide pictures of your ClodBuster build so we all can see;)

    The trucks are pretty fast with 45t motors. We also have a 27t class. The class is supposed to represent old school monster trucks that were slow and bouncy.
