Default poor mans crawler

A poor man has poor ways, But as i drooool on all these killer builds, im embarrassed. Im a proud owner of two 1/10 maxstone exceeds one venom creeper and a losi night crawler. not much action found on these. I have lots of hours of fun on all these rigs and they have been tough as nails. only mods is to throw some weight in the wheels and change lexan bods.So to all the broke people out there on a budget but have the passion, Crawl on ......you are not alone I think we need to start a hot line The C.C.A CHEAP CRAWLER ANONYMOUS LOL i like the sounds of that anyone else? peace rcron

I have never bought a kit for RC, maybe once about ten years ago lol... I just like to make things into other things and see potential in everything

Hey rcron, at least you have a few RC vehicles that can run on the dirt, they may not be top of the line Berg's or whatever the cutting edge rigs are at the moment, just enjoy what's available to you at the moment. Everybody has to start somewhere!

Nothing wrong with a budget build Back in the day, we had to make all our own stuff anyway. Putting something together from "what I got" is a hell of a lot more fun than assembling a kit.
