You got me thinking about it - but I dont want to have to invest a bunch of $. What have you heard about the Losi Comp Crawler. You can get them pretty cheap. Shafty so only 1 motor - 1 esc needed. I am just very unfamiliar with these worm gears...

Guy has one on rccrawler with some upgrades - motor esc, recvr, $175 shipped.

BBking,

If you want a cheap MOA rig. Go pick up a set of Berg axles (oh wait, you said cheap, nevermind), *correction* :mrgreen: pick up a set of used Bully axles. Find a MOA chassis that you like (I see used ones on rccrawler all the time), two 45t brushed rc4wd cans and get to building. oh, get at me when you need links, I'm getting pretty good at making them now.

I don't know on shafty rigs, I'm still running TLT axles, so I'm a little behind on shaftys. :biggrin:

Not mine yet. he wants to throw in a tekin rs esc and teking 17.5 sensored BL motor. But That is gonna be way more than I want to spend. I likely will just get the roller.
