Default A few snow pics with paddles tires...

Hey everyone, after our snow storm I had a few minutes of glory in the snow with my custom creation before the cold weather got to me...















Hope you enjoy them.

I started building a body for it months back and it's almost finished. It's loosely based off of a Ferrari F-430. Now with my luck it's winter and the body would only get wet and weigh it down, so I kept it off for the time being. Hopefully I'll crack it out when the weather permits though.

Well, she's a 4WD so the paddles work really well. Compared to other tread designs like chevron or Proline dirt hawgs, the paddles work best in snow. I drove it through both fluffy as well as slightly packed snow and the results were good. Of course, I'd say a good road tire is better than these when strictly running on asphalt though.

Thanks. When I take it out to drive some people look at it funny and must think time reversed by a few decades, lol.

Thanks Giorgos. When deciding on the body I was looking for something to tone down the raw look. Now that it's winter, the paddles would for sure look funny under it, but I was thinking of using my current preferred on-road tires:





I think they look a little less silly than paddles under a sports car body.
