I was never into mudding with 'real trucks'- i always liked to tinker and collect RC stuff - one ive had the most fun with is a 1/4 scale clod buster - directions say " dont use in water or mud" - its been in that and more, i never had it submerged in mud, but ran it thru puddles - had it out in the snow and on ice , been the best lil truck i ever bot- plus it still runs good.

Surprisingly that 1:6 scale monster jeep uses a 9.6 volt battery- id like to see if i could run a 12volt setup.

Clodbusters are cool. I'm trying to buy some axles from one off a guy to build another rock crawler.

I was never really into mud in the fullsize trucks either. I'd drive thru it if there was no way around, which is common in these parts. But if there was a choice between mud or rocks and general trails, I'd steer clear of the mud.

After working on my mower this evening I got some rocks in the garage and ran my micro crawler. Took some video.
Brought some rocks into the garage this evening and got some video of the micro.

Did the big Jeep look like this? This was a walmart RC that runs on a pb-acid 12V battery, like what power wheels run. Gave it to a buddy who got injured and had nothing better to do with his down time.

Yeah, mine was orange but I painted it. The axles are belt driven from the electric motor, well it's actually a large o-ring. It's probably stretched and slipping. Might be able to find one at the auto parts store that fits a little more snug. That it the hi/low shift thing can get stuck sometimes as well. Mine did and I manually locked it in low gear.

hopefully it would be an easy fix.
i think maybe it got some water in it, or one time it rolled and hit cement really hard so idk what happened
