I have started to build a new crawler. This one will be pretty big. This is something that I am going to slowly peice together.

2.6 inch Clodbuster tires.

That is going to be huge but should be an awesome project.
It's going to be a slow build because some of the parts are kind of expensive. My 1st thing to do is completely build-up the chassis, which I have ordered chassis parts for.

It will be worth it. What kind of power plant you plan to use?

It is definitely not gonna be an extreme super class vehicle.

It is mainly going to be somewhere between one of those and a 1/10 scale crawler. Is it will definitely be longer than the standard comp caller as I am using Wraith specific links, which are longer than the XR10 ones, which the stock XR10 is standard comp crawler length.

I decided to throw the straight links on the bottom and I will put some longer straight links on the top of the chassis, above the shocks due to the axle layout.

Looking good indeed! I am no good at builds like that, I wish I was :)
When I started RC, I started on crawlers like that. I had a Losi Night Crawler RTR that I modded a bunch.

Here is the final form of the chassis and suspension.
