Greetings all. Time to bust out all the offroad vehicles and get em cold and wet in the fluffy stuff. :cool: If you have any pictures of your nitro or elec offroad vehicle doing what it does best in the snow, show em! I may not have any offroad vehicles, but I did drive my stock tl01 in the snow (however this was from last year :p ). At less that half an inch, the little basher held its own and did all the stuff I wanted it to. I have the pictures of it on my webpage. http://thercfinatic11203.tripod.com

Also here are some pictures from Greenwich,CT of the snow and me sliding down the hill on my stomach. Heh, when ya dont have offroad vehicles to bash with, BASH YOURSELF!! :D I managed to hit 13mph going down the hill, few powerslides when I got to the bottom, flipped over several times getting dizzy, and nearly broke a arm.. LOL. Well enough about me, lets hear about all you folks bashing in the cold stuff. :)

*Sits here pondering why western washington hardly gets any snow, yet it is the closest state to alaska* ;) :p


I have done some good bashing with my T3 in the snow, over at our vacation house on the other side of the mountains where they actually get snow ;) Paddles tires throw such a roost its fun :D

PLus we made this nice snow jump off a 8 foot ledge, jumping off was a blast too, and luckily the snow cushions landings :p

Hey, I think that is bad idea to drive your r/c car on snow. CVD and another parts could get rust from snow.:confused:

The only thing I hate about the snow around here is that when If snow's the snow becomes like a rock and the only way through it is to go over it but you normally fall in. It's like one food deep and It makes it almost impossible to drive in.

When we get one inch of snow I have all sorts of fun

Whee! My T3 got a bit wet that day. Those tires suck too. Even on the dry pavement the tires were just too cold and it kept spinning out.

I made an underbody today to try to keep the water out. Unfortunately it was dark before I was finished so no snow fun for me just yet :(

Hmmm, maybe its the fact that those are street tires ;) :p

Dude, can you post some pics of that inner body in the T3 forum thats in electric off-road? I'm interested in seeing it :cool:

Saboteur- THats an interesting rc car you got :p ;)

pottymouth
12-06-2002, 08:14 PM
yesssss, they certainly are street tires. Actually, I didn't think the basketball courts would still have snow on them and I didn't wanna walk home and put on the knobbies : )

The inner body is very unimpressive but I'll post a pic over there anyway.

If your tires suck what you could do is use some shoe goo and put some new tred on it.. I found this today on the internet!!

the coolest thing about snow is you can do monster jumps into a pile of fresh snow and break nothing. :D

all tho you may get a huge puff of snow when that 10 pound truck hits it.

YOU are lucky. While snow is great, up here in chicago all the outdoor tracks close up shop and its about an hour to the nearest indoor track. Count your blessings and get outside and RACE!!!!!!!

I don't have any pics from this recent snowstorm, but i have some movies instead. Here is a short clip of my Clod in the snow, having very poor grip because i don't have paddles :)
Plus i am running Mag Mayhems, which aren't particularly high RPM but very torquey.

Heyas Saboteur... bashing around at the LHS has died down for the winter, they are running longer hours during the holidays so we won't meet up until late Jan. or so.

I was at my parent's house when that video was filmed out in Long Island.

Man I wish we had snow like that. (because they took away the location feature, you dont know where I am - arrrrgggghhh). SW England btw.

Saying that, light snow has been forecast, combined with windchill temps of -9 Celsius. But then, I cant run my SNR because I need engine mounts. Oh man!!!!!

Great pics Saboteur et al
