Managed to get all my new chasis pieces expoxied and screwed together and made a plow for it. We are getting over here about 8-12 total, so on the first inch I went out and plowwed, worked very nice, I protected my electronics my wrapping the main part of the chasis with glad press and seal (yea ik 50 cents protecting about 50 bucks) dang good fun though hopefully tomorrow the roads will be clear with about an inch and I can have some fun, I will get pics of the plow but it broke off towards the end when I caught a lip on my driveway.

Sweet deal! We just got a total of 16"!!!! And it drifted in areas so it was over 3' in places!!!

No fun for me, i had too much fun burning elctronics, rusting parts, and wasting bearings two years ago. All my 1/10th offroads have been winterized and set on blocks for now.

Washing dishes isn't that hard, although it is a dirty job to have to do. There is always a job that is alot worst to do, eventhough it might be easy to do, it just isn't worth it.


As for a rc as a plow, I don't think that will work too good on the snow by me even if I had a 5ht scale car. But it does look like it would be fun.

yeah i saw a vid of that a long time ago, and it worked kinda well but was pretty light so it got pushed around a lot

yeah i just take out the snow blower and trash (i'm pretty rough on it if its cold or i don't wanna do it...) it around till all the snow is bye bye, but yeah tho i think a RC like tractor with a snowblower mounted up could be a very good idea, just sit inside and do it from there...

Who would you think it would work good enough in the snow, traction? Yea it doesn't take brains to wash dishes we do the odd weird jobs like scrapping the grease of the fryilator, not the funnest thing in the world. lol!

Sidewinder: I really want to see that RC Snow Blower in action, its a little big and bulky but you could sell it to the elderly and they could do it inside of their house!

That is because I have a lot of snow by me all the time, and I also get lake effect snow so it is normaly a little heavier then what most people get.

Almost, as you really don't get lake effect snow as the storm has to pass over the lake first. Although you do get a not of snow yet on the other side of the lake (but you do get a lot more wind then what I get).
