My ttr ripper
Here is my Thundertech Ripper chassied Clod. This is my first Clod after drooling over built ones for almost 20 years. Bought used and have added cvd's, rear strait axle, Novak Super Duty XR, Losi shocks, and foams in the tires. Waiting on some CPE axle stiffeners and braces and hardware coming soon.
Looks good! Do you get to drive on a golf course? That is my draem, super short grass and rolling hills! I live right next to one but don't think they'd let me as it's a private club.
Here's my custom Clodbuster. With a machined chassis designed by me and Snoopmaxx. It's inspired by Tom Meents' Maximum Destruction.
And as it's alter ego... Snake Bite.
New to me Body, thank you Tom
Nice clods guy's
Here is mine!
Where do you guys get these bodies done? I know TBG sells them but who paints them?
I painted that one. I just finished this one.
Holy poop on a stick! that is talent (I'm not bad but not that good haha) what would you need to paint one up for me? Or do you not do that?
Awesome work with that Hulk paint job. You've got skills.:cool
Thanks guys I was kind of bummed with this paint, because it bled in the green letters. And left black blotches and streaks. I'm going to do at least two more of these, and I plan on using liquid mask next time. This was all tape. Which screwed me. I hoping to start doing bodies on the side, and as I get better, I can maybe do it full time. If this body were flawless I would probably charge $125-$150. Just because it's about 8 hours of work.
CPE Terminator build
It's done! CPE Predator w/ Parma 97 Bigfoot body
Got some new shoes!
I like it much better now with the bigger tires.
got a new chassis and body for the axles/tires/etc. that were underneath my zilla 4(so no more zilla 4 for me) i think it looks alot better then before all i need to do now is wait till it gets warmer here so i can paint the chassis black
Pictures of my CCP Clodbuster after restoration....
OMG I forgot to post my thanks!! I bought this truck when I was 8 years old. I built it by pushing a lawnmower after school and going to the lhs to get the chrome parts. The truck also had trinity matched madness motors, and eventually a Novak Super Rooster ESC (sold em on here)
When I decided to restore the truck, a few of you guys donated some parts for the project. I tried to use alclad and spazzstix to recreate the chrome on a couple other tubs and it didn't work quite like I had hoped. So the couple spots on the chassis that had a chip in the finish I simply patched with chrome monocoat....cant even see it!!
I do want to thank you guys though....everyone who help me and donated parts to get this thing back up a going....it means the world to me!!
OMG I forgot to post my thanks
