Hi guys, well my new toy has arrived.

I had a bit of a soldering session lastnight prior to binding the crawler. I converted my 2s packs over to ec5's, just to be uniform.

I bought this crawler of off CiLyX and it turned up yesterday.

I am pretty happy with the car and it is my first crawler, it's definitely not as fast as the baja, but I can see it being a lot of fun and some careful and precise driving too.

I am sure you all know what they look like, but here is mine.




At the moment she is bog stock I reckon and will stay like that for now, but like all good intentions, I am sure that will change.

Cheers Dave.

Thanks guys. I have a nickname for the car now - 2 Dogs.

The pic will be self explanotory:)



I have put a pack or two through it out the front and it was great actually.

Since I am new to this crawler thing and the honcho for that matter, are there any things I should keep an eye out for? What about maintenance on a car like this.

Cheers Dave.

Buy yourself some marine grease and use it to grease the diff/transmission, not to much on the gears or it will bind up, but you can fully pack axel tubes to stop water/dust getting in there

Keep an eye on the set screws that lock the shafts to the box and diffs, they have a habit of becoming loose
