    Snowmobile Track Help

    ok so Ihave read through almost every snowmobile thread and finaly decided to sign up, Ihave 2, one is stock one is in the middle of modding, so far have a servo up front for steering and a plain jade 550 can motor (Ithink it was the one that came stock on my F350 Hi-Lift)
    No wthe problem Iam having is Isee people make new runner fo rthe track but Idon't see how they get the old wheels off to re use them, lokos like it is press fit on this model maybe Ican't reuse them. Sorry it's crappy cell phone pics, my camera batteries died.

    It's the Polaris XC if anyone has worked on it



    Zip ties are my friend for the motor and servo hehe


    Iam trying to build a track and suspension system like ridgewalker has in their thread www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_8206222/tm.htm

    RE: Snowmobile Track Help

    ok neighbors yard doesn't have a house built yet so there is a nice open white field, only some rivits and bunny tracks to contend with

    Though Ithink Iam starting to strip my gears Ihear a nice grinding noise, Ineed to try and find a belt drive system that Ihave seen people with. My motor is only held in place with hot glue and zip ties, Anyone know of a good place to order a belt drive assembly from? or what car to get the part from that would be good to order from a LHS?

    Here is a short vid, sorry it's crappy cell phone quality and held in one hand while driving with the other. This is at about half battery it's 7 cells of 3300 http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y23...12-09_1549.flv
