Crawler - 11.03.2005, 09:21 AM

I see some people run the juagernuat. Other people have a clod buster. What is the difference between the two? They look alike to me. I have only seen pics of them as well. I like to know which is better. I want to build me something pretty and not really a speed demon. I love the way they look over other trucks. I think cause they so realistic looking.


Peace!

I was looking at the difference. I notice the clod has the motor mounted on the rears like a stampede. The juggernuat has the motor mount to a tranny like an emaxx. Can run an emaxx tranny in one. :cool: is this the case or is there more.

I have found a few around. Seems the juggernaut was dicontinued. That really sucks. Is there another truck in production that is built like them. I don't want to get something that is not in production and the parts are going to be like hard to find. I need to find some juggernaut peoples. Does some one no of a site for after market parts for these. The place I found sells custom made chassis. I may have to email him. Any other help would be appreciated thanks all.


Peace!

The TXT (by Tamiya) also has a center transmission like the Juggy.

Wait for Dabid to come on, he will fill you in on the crawler info. :)

I'm here, whaddya want? :D

Clodbusters are unique because they're one of the few trucks that have the motors mounted right on the axle, like this:


This is my truck:



True, as MetalMan said, TXT's and Juggernauts (and Jugg. 2's, the second edition of the Jugg) have center trannies with driveshafts that go down to the axles. This is the major difference between Clods and the ones with trannies, and defines the two different types of basic crawlers: Clods, and "shafties". I would go with a Clod as a first crawler, that way you don't have to worry about driveshaft length and stuff.......:D

Oh yeah, head over to www.rccrawler.com if you need any help.

I think the shafties look a little better. Well not reall better but more 1;1. I don't really have a place to crawl. I want to build like a beauty. I have to search my options more. Thanks for all the help. Does any one no of a good site to get aluminum stuff for these trucks. I build one out of parts if I can. Like my maxx.

I have a clod, jugg2 and a txt1 myself. The clod is the better crawler hands down(none are stock, mind you), but the jugg2 and txt1 definately look more realistic. I haven't played with them in quite a while, though. I have an -emaxx tranny conversion kit for the txt1(still haven't mounted it, though!). Jugg2 is no longer in production, so I wouldn't build one to use, but thentxt1 is the same basic truck, but with a much better chassis and suspesnion design(stock vs. stock). Sounds like the truck for you, Leroy.

So you think the txt 1 or a clod? I like the txt 1. Some one made aluminum rears for them. I can't seem to find them. I found aluminum rears for the clod.

From what you say I think the TXT-1 is for you too. I have one that really got this whole Monster Truck thing going for me, along with a modded Juggy. The TXT really is a thing of beauty in design, assembly, and scale looks. With that aside though, I haven't played with either of mine since I got an Emaxx a couple of years ago. I thought about pulling it out last summer but never got around to it. Maybe this winter inside since I have 4 wheel steering for it and that works better for inside, but when it comes down to to it for me, speed, turns, and big jumps are what I like, and the crawler, well it only crawls! :p


Please tell me that's not smoke I see!
