    RC Snowplow

    Hey guys, I guess this is one of those "hey why not" threads. So last year I really wanted a snowplow but didn't have a proper 4x4 truck to use. So I made orange juice with the moldy lemons that life gave me and made one for my rustler. It was absolutely terrible last year, didn't have even remotely close to OK tires for snow, and also the rustler was too lite and spun out about every 2 inches. Well this winter I've had a bit of time to think and I remembered that I ordered so weights for back in the summer for speed runs. Anyway I dug those out and strapped them to the rear of the car and threw on a set of ProLine Sand Paws (paddle tires). I also had to change my plow a bit. So i added some links to help the flexing stay at a minimum. I also changed the shock oil to allow the car to sit a lot lower. I've only used it twice but its done a darn good job both times. The weight on the back adds up to 2 pounds and makes a world of difference. I know that this is a long paragraph so here are some pics to ease your eyeballs.

    the weights in the back really make her squat
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?
