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.
If you’d like to submit pics to Readers’ Rides, just email your JPEGs to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t down-size the photos, we need ‘em full-res for print.
