u have to remember that 1.2 inches of snow to a 1/10 scale truck is the same as 1 foot of snow to a normal sized truck so 4 ft deep snow is approximately 40 ft of snow to your 1/10th scale truck. of coarse u killed it. i wish i had money to throw away for fun, must be nice

My t-maxx loves the snow. I have all the electronics waterproofed, and I run an old trx 2.5 with a chopped off head, but it loves the snow. It is a lot of fun, and old worn out engines can be brought back to life for an additional gallon or more by running them in cold weather. My old TRX 2.5 is completely worn out and will barely run in hot weather, but it wakes right up in cold weather.

I highly doubt you even broke it in properly at those temperatures, even if you tired, it's really not healthy to break-in a motor in such brutal conditions

lol street force, don't even bother with Matt cause he has as much experience as my left butt cheek. As to the dude dumping his car in the powder, well thats just plain stupid. Serves him right, maybe they should make a law that screens people before they are allowed to buy guns/ dangerous/ explosive materials and vehicles. Insufficient intelligence is a killer these days,

Tom.
