    I will be getting a new Savage .25 soon and I would like to know if you can go Snowin with trucks?
  2. Ya! driving in the snow is one of the things that makes RCing fun. You will have to do some extra work to make sure your maxx won't get damaged in the snow though. If your receiver isn't in a sealed box, you should make sure water cannot get into it. You might also want to get either paddle tires or sand paws. After a fun run through the snow, make sure you wipe off all your parts to prevent rust and re-lube moving parts.

    I cant wait till a rock crawler project of mine is done so i can kick up some snow around here. Ya, just waterproof everything, especailly things lower to the ground. I would use baloons to wrap around all the electronics though.

    OK, so I have made up my mind I will go for the snow.

    You can also get ski's to replace the front tires now. They look pretty cool if you plan on driving in the snow a lot.

    Skis?? Sort of over doing it in my opinion.
  7. Actually for powder. Skis handle excellantly, they float above the snow giving you great steering. The skis hook on directly to the bolts your tires are one. Simply buy some skis (around $20-25 on ebay) take off your tires, slip on the skis and have fun!

    ya the skis are nice. the savage has most of the electronics in a box but it is open so the servo can stick out so i would balloon everything just to be safe.
