you can run them in any temp as long as they stay pretty warm, like 180 min, you can wrap the cooling head with aluminum foil to keep the temp up. they are usually pretty hard to start when they are cold and you dont want to lean the needles too much to keep temps up or you can ruin the engine due to lack of oil.

thats cold too, i am a little confused when you say it stops running when you hit the snow, does any snow get on the engine? it may coold the engine too much and stops it from running, its very hard to get a nitro to run good in 20F weather, never the less -5c. maybe try wrapping the head with aluminum.

not really, thats a pretty large tank on it now. I dont think you will find anything, i think most if not all 1/8 have the same capacity.
