Jeff LaPorte’s Classic Clod

Apr 22, 2014 No Comments by

Jeff LaPorte of Liverpool, NY submitted this shot of his Tamiya Super Clod Buster, and it’s one of our Readers’ Rides selections for the June issue. The truck is mostly stock except for a few choice Traxxas bits including an XL-5 speed control and Ultra shocks. Bonus points for the smooth paint job (no easy feat, since the Clod body is hard plastic and painted on the outside), a custom “Purple-Licous” color Jeff created with Testors paints. The kit-supplied motors power the truck, and Jeff plans to upgrade to a 2.4GHz radio system and add a few Pro-Line scale accessories to this nicely-finished Clod.

I've been involved in RC for over 25 years, and first joined Air Age Media in 1997. I served as Executive Editor until 2008, when I went to work on the manufacturing side of the RC biz. Now back at RC Car Action, I'm thrilled to be doing what I love most--not just enjoying RC, but sharing it with all of you. In addition to RC, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Kathleen and our wonderful daughter Audrey.
