RC Stampede and Crawler Lexan Bodies

If you have been watching, you know that RC rock crawling is gain momentum as an exciting alternative to the fast paced stadium/monster trucks. With Axial providing such a great platform to start with, rock crawling courses are popping up, customers are creating custom ways of getting the right articulation and ground clearance and having a blast doing it.

The Ground Haug bodiless tvp chassis bolts right onto the axial rig and with some changes to the link arms, your customers can crawl in style with fine tune shock placement, a perfect comp legal 12.5 wheel base, and with our introductory offer you can save money by buying directly from the OEM; Racer's Edge Machine which has been making upgrade parts for Traxxas since '04.

I spent enough time in school to know how geometry works. Since this chassis is designed for 4" sprung shocks or droop, I have made sure the shocks never touch the chassis or the tires on severe articulations unlike other bodiless tvp chassis's on the market. I also created a way to hold the shocks inboard and free from the chassis while giving great side hill abilities to the crawler.

Ground Haug Design & Distribution has a simple moto: Get Off That Couch!. With kids sitting around all the time, my kids too, I took my talents to RC crawlers, bodies and skateboards; mixing hot rod style and the rat rod culture with tools that help kids think.

Racers Edge Machine uses the most advanced CNC Machining and Design Technologies to produce Precision RC Parts from Aircraft Quality Aluminum. REM prides themselves on the highest quality standards to insure proper fitment and durability of every part, Guaranteed!. REM manufactures ALL parts in the USA and leads the industry in GREEN Standards. Through REM's Quality, Outstanding Customer Service and Innovative Designs, they strive to be the Leader in the World of Performance R/C.

Series Comp at HT - Concord

This last Saturday I entered a series comp at Hobby Town Concord and had a blast. The chassis handles great. Our team driver and I placed quite well. I drove okay but knowing that my drive shaft was about to snap, I drove too gingerly and racked up some point that I shouldn't have. Scores are like golf so for each reverse, add one point.

Here is a short vid of my allowed entry into the pro course that even though I wasn't happy with some areas that could have been tackled with more patients, I did pretty good.

You can catch the other vids and comments at: and see what others in the "pro" class did on this same course. after seeing they're runs, I think I did pretty good.
