Holy crap - That's a big engine on there! Is that size needed to make this thing go or did you want it to go wicked fast?

I like it...

By the way, what kind of servos do you use, must take some heavy gear to turn those skids in heavy snow.

Well the body is being made as we speak and so are the sprockets for the rear track.There is still alot of testing and beating left to be done to have it bomb proof or close to bomb proof machine.This is heavy duty it will weigh about 50 to 60 pounds rtr and built like a tank,so it can handle any abuse.

The steering servo for now is a Hitec 5745mG and is working very well but our tests aren t all done yet.We might add a second one to relieve some stress.Or go with two 805bb wich have greater torque.

The disc brake is off your standard pocket bike and brakes like crazy!This will not be an issue i garanty it!

I can t wait to try the 125cc engine!!!This thing is going to be crazy!

Once i get more info,pictures and video i will post the news.

Mike@Accurate:

Where did U find those?

The belt driven Mini Scooter could be fun up here in Greenland
UnfortunateƦy We have a US$ 4000 Tax on snow scooters/snow mobiles, making the small ones of those un interesting.

Go to: made-in-china.com and search snow scooter. Then search for everything else the Chinese make. I could spend a week browsing there. MIKE
