Default hobby grade rc snowmobiles?

I was just wondering if there are good hobby grade snowmobiles? I was just wanting to see some or maybe buy one becuz we are getting alot of snow anymore and my e-maxx can only go in so deep amounts of snow. Any thing you guys have or websites is really appriciated. even vids that you know of or found, post it. thanks for anything! Oh and pics too

i'd say the Kyosho Blizzard is your thing, there's a thread of it somewhere, its highly capable in the snow.

I found this site quite a few months back. [link]http://www.rcsnowmobiles.com/index.html[/link]

Unfortunately it doesn't sound like he's going to be selling any, unless he can find a company to team up with to help get them to into production.
I think they are pretty cool looking, and be sure to check out some of the videos they have on there. I would definately pick one up if they started makeing them!

that polaris one looks cool but there is no parts support so you'd have to be good at fabricating your own parts. I've thought about it myself but not for that much money, maybe if it was under $80 or so.

in this forum currently, the top few threads next to this one are all about RC snowmobiles, take a sec to look, not to burst your bubble but we cover this question quite frequently =)
and i do +1 on the kyosho blizzard, there currently more reliable and *fun* ready out of the box compared to any current RC sleds.
