Actually I still have my Bullhead, the cousin to the Clodbuster, it has eight Kyosho "gold"
shocks and an aluminum Sassy chassis.

I miss the clod, it was such a beast when it first came out. I had a Bullhead too, just wasn't the same though. Only 1 Clod Buster.

The Clodbuster was the first kit that I built.. My first R/C was an ARR (Kyosho Sandmaster ST-2). I loved the clod, that thing could take a beating. Though the lamest thing ended up shelfing it for almost 10 years.. a broken servo saver. (Don't ask me why it took as long as it did to fix it..).

Eventually (a year ago) fixed it up by buying a ESP Clodzilla IV chassis for it.. Ran it a little bit and then the nitro bug bit me.. So I sold it and purchased a Savage. From time to time I wish I had kept it- had some nostalgia to it- I remember spending hours and hours working in a vineyard for my Dad to buy the *censored* thing lol.

Perhaps I'll buy another one in the future, buy a CPE Sniper chassis and throw in some brushless/lipo and tear it up..... It's only money right?
