Those tracks look like they would dig into snow in reverse and nearly forward?? Wonder why the front top pulley is so low?
And might work better in reverse it the rear had Top pulley like in the front.
Still that truck looks awesome
Its not the way I would designed the tracks but these are the only ones available so I had to work with it lol. Those front top pullies is how you adjust the track tension. I wish they would have just made one of the lower front or rear boggy wheels adjustable for track tension and did away with that top front pulley. I also tried swapping the front 2 tracks around and it was even worse so I put them back.
just as well we don't have reverse then eh?
if they were made like snowmobile tracks...ie belted rubber, then you'd get some speed maybe.
Any way to cut down weight on these tracks would make for better performance. Its pretty cool how each section of the track is separate so all the lugs move independently from each other which keeps the tracks from binding when it rolls :-)...
ORIGINAL: Nitro Fumes
It must take a really strong steering servo with those tracks up front.
Dual steering servos, Hitec 5755, I don't think a single steering servo would cut it running tracks up front.
These tracks weight just over 3.5lbs a piece lol....
