So You Want To Build A Crawler, Do You?

by Smoke&Mirrors

I know, you saw a video on YouTube and have the urge now. I went through it and I’m sure a lot of other people have too. For me, I loved 1:1 crawling so much that I wanted more and on a smaller scale so I could do it in backyard without tearing up the grass so much. :-o

So I started looking around the net and here and bookmarking pages that had killer mods that I planned to do (note: I did not find ALL of these, some sites already had lists which I am linking to). Before long I had a good 10 mods, at least. So, to make it easy on all you crawlin’ pimps in the making, and without further adu, here it is:
