Detroit Mud Run 1994 2/3
Part 2. Detroit Maine. Tricky track for some reason. Mudosaurus gave up the VW bus transaxle (skimmers need automatics - one gear is very limiting) for a chevy powerglide 2 speed with 6000 stall converter and trans brake and a ford 9" rear axle with aluminum spool. This cut the times almost in half (with the Nitrous installed later on) When driving up to the starting line the engine would often flood out and take awhile to clear up, I found out later that the carb would shake from vibration and dump fuel. A stiffer carb mount would have probably fixed the flood-outs. After installing Nitrous oxide later in 1994 the engine was damaged from a series of unfortunate events so I replaced the VW beetle engine with a 350 chevy V8. Even with the NOS it ran slower times than with the VW engine. The front end is 1973 VW Thing front spindles and ball joints with fabricated control arms and VW Rabbit steering rack with modified tierods.

A quick note for youtube users: Remember this was filmed in summer 2009. There was still no Axial XR10 on the marked and lots of things in the RC-world changed since then. Also, on the full DVD film is much more action and not only people falling with there crawlers ;-) This clip was made to be an appetizer
Thanks for watching.
Filmed at the german rccrawler nationals 2009. Soon on DVD, stay tuned.....
