Further Description/Back Story I always wanted a Clodbuster when I was younger. This is my first Clodbuster (black edition), bought it in April 2020. Started building it to be a stock black edition clod but didn’t want it looking like all the other black edition clods out there. Born and raised in Hawaii, replicating the old school Hawaiian Punch truck was a no brainer. Also being pretty new to building rc trucks I was nervous about the two tone paint scheme. But it turned out pretty good.
