Sticks are for ppl with NO driving skills.. Go for a TLT based rig, or even the new axial scorpion.. its almost rtr and its a very capable looking rig..

well here is the bottom line. A stick is not a crawler built for people with no skills, it is just a better handling crawler, calling it a cop out of a crawler just means that the crawler you own doesnt have the abilities or your driving skills lack in comparison. i could drive my 4 link clod into any situation that a stick could be used. a TLT or the AX10 are smaller, and you will not be able to crawl stuff that is larger, or stairs or stuff like that. if you want small scalish size then a AX10 or TLT or wheely king crawler is the way to go, if you want something that can climb anything go for a Clod buster based crawler or emaxx based, but you wont beat the ability of a clod based rig. I am building a clod right now, and i think that i would only ever run clods due to the size of the smaller rigs.

Yeah, get some clod axles. Big trucks are fun. I have both tlts and clods. There is something about being able to drive over everything that always takes me back to my clods.
