With the fancy extended race frames and such? I started building a stock one a year ago but never finished and parts got spread out. I don't have time to start again would rather just pay someone to build me one.

We can do it, and have built trucks for people in the past. It just takes time to assemble these but we can help you out getting a rolling chassis built.

This time of year is really busy, but we can probably fit it in as long as you don't need it turned around really quickly. Probably looking at a 2 week turnaround at best. Thanks!

Brett,

How much does it cost to build the truck for someone?

Thanks
Beyond the cost of all the parts used, probably $50-60 for assembly plus whatever shipping for the rolling chassis is. This is NOT something I'm interested in doing a lot of though as it takes a good bit of time for each one of these. Thanks!

I was just wondering. I have a truck that is almost finished, but haven't had any time to work on. I just didn't know what you guys would charge to finish it.

Personally I think you should build your first one. I bought my first one and had no clue what to do or how to fix parts on that truck till I decided to build my own second truck, taught me a lot about the clodbuster and gave me the knowledge to know when something breaks what it is and how to get to it.

Cool, if your going to run it loose the mechanical speed control and upgrade it to an ESC. Novak makes a nice one designed for dual motor applications.

If you ever need any help i can assist as I am working on my very own custom clodbuster and have had it completely together once and it ran great but since then I have been buying a lot of upgrades for it that I am still installing, I have a pretty good knowledge of the hobby, and if I can't help you with it than I can refer to the guys at clodtalk.com and I'm sure I can find an answer there they know everything

John Boyer over at Rcmt and I'm sure Clodtalk can build you a Sick MT. He's one of the best when it comes to realistic, and strong replica chassis, I'm sure he would build you a full truck too. It may be spendy, but you definitely get your money's worth. He goes by the name RCWizard. From what I remember over on those boards. He's got some vids on youtube under that name of his 1/.4 scale custom Grave Digger and some other things.

The Novak Super Rooster or Novak Super Duty XR are both designed for dual motor applications, but you will have to try to find them used as they have booth been discontinued. Pretty much everything is brushless by Novak now.

This is the only current esc that is dual motor they offer, but more greared for the rock crawlers...

Also, the Traxxas EVX speed controls are made for dual motor, but also dual batterys. They run 14.4 volts, so the clod would be fast! There's ways to mod them for single battery though.

I think the EVX-2 is the best bet because they are readily available and waterproof however can they work with just one battery or will it degrade the power

Looks like it will work according to tower hobbies spec 7.2-16, im sure you will only have half the power or half the run time. I might go with it myself, reasonable priced
