Hey all,



I have finally finished my TXT 1 electric crawler and here are some pics.







I have done mods to it including, locking the diffs, re arranging
steering servos , installing 4 wheels steer, dual magnetic mayhem
motors, robinson racing 9 tooth pinion gears, Novak Super Rooster ESC
and GPM alloy cantilevers.



Future mods include narrowing the rims and cutting the tyre tread to
make them softer for better grip. A lengthening of the wheelbase will
also help crawling and the most important of all , especially with the
TXT 1 is to get the centre of gravity lower.









A few other lads with elec crawlers and myself met up today at ARB
Southside in Brisbane. They kindly let us use their 1:1 scale
test track.







The green truck in this picture is a Mach 1, its made by Centipede
Engineering ( Monster Truck Parts Australia ) and is basically the
ultimate in electric crawling trucks. It is based on a custom chassis
and Clod Buster axles.







This truck is a Clodzilla 4 with a few other mods aswell. Clod
axles are the best for crawlers due to the motors being mounted on the
axles thus lowering the centre of gravity aswell as eliminating torque
twist as sufferd by shaft driven trucks.

The txt was an ebay score, I got it, a miniz and a heap of other stuff
for 500 bucks. I sold the mini z for 100 and the txt's esc and motor
for 100 so really I picked up the txt for 300 bucks but ive spent a
fair bit on it, super rooster, magnetic mayhem motors etc etc

They look posed, impressive. It would have been good to watch!

they're LANDCRUISERs, Dan.
Should be quite a few up Snowy??


None of that Chrysler crap, they literally couldn't hack the Snowy's HEP work. Took Toyota to build something that lasted the distance/project. Even today the maintenance engineersareusing RAV4s.
