Nice looking rig. Can't go wrong with the SCX10, great truck and a million different mods and setup's you can do.

Looks good, Rusted, those inner fenderwells will help keep the electronics dry, and keep most of the mess out of the inner chassis, as long as you don't run through too many mud holes.

Thanks guys. after everything else i have to do gets done the next thing i'm getting is a 35T motor.
very soon all this snow will be gone and it will be in more mud holes than ill be able to count.
i'm stoked the new rc should be here around monday and i think i have a plan for the other one that might work with the mini servos a bit better.
then i can get back to this bad mama jama. lol.

If you have the budget here's a plug and play sound system I've been using on various vehicles. It's pretty small, very light and I just use velcro to attach it to the top of a battery, chassis, etc.
You can download free sound files and purchase others all progarammable through your pc via a usb link that comes with the system. Not bad for $100 delivered.

Today had the right kind of snow and i felt kinda lazy so i plow snow instead of shoveling it. had a bunch of fun.




the light need to be brighter so i'll look in to that soon.
the tire chains worked great and because the plow tilts forward there is no hard stops. when it does i just back up a little, lift the plow up some and go. dropping the plow back down when i pass the ruff spot. i like being lazy some times. fun and work at the same time.

Good fun in the snow! Looks awesome. I use a converted tammy king hauler with bb filled rear tires to do my snow plowing. The plow is nowhere near as nice as yours, mines just a modded plastic bruder with servo up/down.

That's one hell of a plow truck TheBennyB. love the fat rear tires on that rig man.
i did some tire chains to help with traction. works out pretty good.

Ya, I know what you mean. Plowing snow on my garden railroad works only if the snow is 3 inches or less, lol
