Tamiya 1:10 Super Clod Buster (2012) EP
The Super Clod Buster is back! This monster truck features a body that was inspired by classic pick-up trucks from the 1980's, giving it a realistic appearance. The front grille, air intake and roll bar are recreated with metal-plated parts. The truck also features a twin-motor dual gearbox 4WD drivetrain, 8 coil spring dampers and massive 165mm diameter tires, as well as a 4-wheel drive steering system to help the model navigate tight corners.

Highly-durable bathtub type monocoque chassis frame
Front/rear trailing arm suspension with 8 coil spring dampers

I like this monster truck, but I would rate it lower than the Tamiya 58519 Bruiser, Traxxas E-Maxx brushless and Traxxas TRX-4 crawler. The reason is, too much plastic - actually it's mostly plastic and less in scale detail. What I like most about it is the monster bashing ability and toughness of the plastic chassis.It has gone through lots of jumps and hard landings, many many scratch marks on the underside from rocks etc, and it still works. But I would have preferred dual steering servos for 4WS rather than single servo linked to both front and rear axles because the turning radius is much less. If you love to customize your truck, you can modify many things including the steering, there are tons of options out there to choose. I bought 2 of these monsters. Great job!
