Default FUN IN THE SNOW

I had some fun in the snow. That is my rst(raven st). I modified my stampede body to fit and put some rs4 mt front alloy c-hubs and knuckles on to run hex tires all the wat around. Just waterproffed my 3pm rx and gooed the servo case and let the esc stay open. these tazer are cheap but have never had one fail even in the snow.

The buggy is my xxx graphite. It has mm7700kv and a synthesized rx with ko-propo mars tx. I put my rst front c-hubs and knuckles on the front, and some 12mm hexs in the rear to run my st paddles and ribs. It is unstopable in the snow. I went through about 6 inces at around 40mph for about 200ft with a 10 ft start in some icy grass/dirt/softer snow. the pics of the buggy are after i ran for about 25 minutes. my camera was chargin or i woulda got some action pics. I will get some more of both tomarrow.

Post what fun you guys are havin in the snow.
