    The tyres I need to be reasonably good in snow, dirt, rock (and hard to withstand tearing) mud and grass, I tried it with Proline Masher and Moab over 40 rims, and for different reasons, especially for his behavior acceptable at all ground, I prefer the original with some changes in the foam and nerves.
    for icy snow or ice i use old chevron tyres with wood screws of 3 * 15 mm inserted from the inside and profiles of rubber glued with flexible cynocrilate, + chains , sometimes.
    thus use two complete sets of tires and rims.



    Lately I'm testing in harsh conditions screws 3 * 20 inclined at 30 º against the meaning of the ascension .

    You are probably right with hard ice to use the screws and chevrons but on any softer snow or powder the Proline Mulchers not Mashers are incredible in snow so are the Losi Super Bolt-On's. Get a pair and try them you won't regret it.

    Thanks 'Stinkfist', maybe try it on some occasions with soft snow but I prefer to keep my Emaxx on icy snow.
    I will add two recent trips to the thread. The first is for an extinct volcanic zone near the Pyrenees in northern Spain, the second on an emblematic mountain in the National Park at the French Pyrenees, I hope you enjoy it.

    Trail 55# Dormant volcanoes in the Garrotxa.
    up! Full Throttle





    Successive layers of ash and lapilli, the last of only 7000 years ago


    trail inside the crater "Croscat"


    ???


    at 39 º C (102º f) everything seems fire



    Next mountain hikes in the following reply

    Splendid

    Do you really run your E-Maxx when you trek in the mountains ? You bring your charger, batteries, wrenches and spare parts with you ??

    Wow, that is just amazing.

    You should hold the world record for longest distance traveled side by side with a radio controlled car.

    That E-Maxx has seen more terrain than most RC's would see after years and years here in the US.

    I was just thinking how awesome that would be to do something similar (not as long of distances as you probably go with your E-Maxx) around here with my E-Maxx. However I couldn't run in snow or in water because my E-Maxx is brushless and LiPo powered. But still seems like alot of fun.

    What motors do you run in your E-Maxx? The stock titans? And if so, how long does a pair of Titans last you?

    And are you running spools in the differentials?

    wow. that is simply incredible, superb.
    Do you bash run or simply use the maxx at walking speed?, I asked because you can use 7.2v instead of 14.4v, using a single $27 crawler motor or two for more torque. using dual batteries in parallel like i have. for stupid long runtimes or less batteries to carry. example i use two 4200mAh in paralell that makes them into 8400mAh i can run mine almost an hour and only take 2200mAh from each battery.

    Increíble, eso es simplemente bellísimo.
    ¿Corres tu maxx a mas velocidad o solo a la velocidad a la que caminas? Te pregunto porque puedes usar 7.2v en lugar de 14.4v usando un solo motor de $27 dolares, con mas torque que los originales, o dos para mucho mas torque . Usando las baterías en paralelo, como yo lo he hecho, para corridas con tiempos estúpidos o menos baterías que cargar, ejemplo tengo dos baterías de 4200mAh y conectadas en paralelo me dan 8400mAh puedo usar mi maxx por poco menos de una hora y solo sacarle 2200mAh a cada batería.

    En hora buena muchas felicidades, grandiosos paisajes realmente envidiables.

    Thank you all for your encouragement. I will try to answer your questions.
    --
    Gsksp1:
    Ops, behind my house I have only small mountains, sometimes I have to run 200 or 250 miles on the car (scale 1/1 ) to go to the Pyrenees.
    Popoxx:
    Yes, the emaxx comes with me when I walk on the mountain from the first to the last kilometer. Obviously I do not carry the charger, but the battery (up to 30,000 mah in several packs) and spare parts as semi-axis, CVD, TX and Rx batteries, links, rod ends, axle carrier, bellcranks, screws .., about 700 grams in weight and nearly 6 Kg in double packs.
    --
    Krawlin:
    True, he has traveled many miles, to be sure, more than 350, but it is also true that I have spent well over $ 2,700 ( without batteries) in spare parts and hopups in something more than two and a half years, and is a really significant amount for me: motors, transmitter, receiver, body, tires, wheels, Rpm, R. Racing, Mip ....

    I'm run with Titan engines , I had to change when the bearing of one of them was spent and vibrated too much.

    It took both differential locked, improved traction is impressive. Essential to some areas.
    --
    E-vilMaxx:
    I prefer not to speak too much of this item or that it becomes the axis of post as it is for me a little controversial. Traxx has NEVER shown interest in this subject, if dependent on support from the manufacturer would have stopped me on the hike number 8, and I've already done 56. Possibly have other interests as the competition, much more widespread, which must be respected. While able to keep costs will continue with my hobby.
    --
    Jefiero:
    Most of the time I'm going to speed walker (5 - 7 Km/h) in first gear with 10/72 pinion , on other occasions I need power to run a little more. I am thinking in two Integy 45t but I like that also run on the ice or descend at full speed. thanks for your translation but do not need to write in Spanish in the forum, I understand your language well, although I write with automatic translator.

    Up! Little king of mountains.

    wow! That is amazing! Those are all places I visit in my dreams! To have that kind of thing right in your backyard is amazing, or at least within a couple hours drive. You definetley are lucky! I noticed your pictures are amazing! What kind of camera are you using? Besides my Emaxx, another big hobby of mine is photography, my favorite place to photography is Europe. But fantastic photos! Keep it up!

    It is completely true. On two occasions walking down the mountain other mountaineers have so far confounded my Emaxx with a dog tied up and covered with a red Blanket. It is curious that a little bit common and unexpected can trick the eye.
    I have fortunate to be able to put together three hobbies, Rc , the mountain, and photography.
    I used two cameras a Nikon Coolpix 5400 and now a Panasonic Lumix FZ30 the two are quite compact to put in the bag . Nikon although in my opinion was somewhat better. On the website are published reduced to 72 dpi 600 * 450. Jpg of approximately 150/180 Kb.

    4 days ago there was a first snowfall in the Pyrenees over 2300m, which naturally took advantage to make a trip. This was the result.

    In the background to the right port mountain we have to go through with the Emaxx.


    Playing near the north wall of a mountain of 3150 m (Taillon)


    turning to start climbing the hill of Sarradets, near the waterfall ice


    Taillon cascade of ice: a delicate crossing and full of doubts


    higher, with the mountain refuge of Sarradets (2525 m) in the sun ,down to bottom


    part of the glacier ice completely in the final stretch. Best with crampons although many people went up without them
    Height 2808 m. + 650 M Elevation in Snow & ice

    Continuing with the hiking trails in the Pyrenees , I leave with you the links to the latest routes and some photos of my 3906.

    Route 57. Attempt to the third summit of the natural park of 'Peñas de Aia' close to my house. Slope is extreme for the Emaxx and I left because the risk of falling.

    Link: http://www.rc-hiking.com/aia8.htm

    The two attempts.


    Spinning into the wall by the 2nd trail


    Above. two climbers pointed the way, with great lateral slope.



    Route 58, Rain and mud for 6 hours.
    Link: http://www.rc-hiking.com/txindoki3.htm








    Route 59. Aizkorri. A world of Rocks.
    http://www.rc-hiking.com/aizkorri3.htm

    Access to the mountain pass


    Nice way. It is that which goes up


    Reaching the crest, already occupied by some ibex


    The peak, the second highest in my province


    I hope to soon make these routes with the new Summit, ideal for this.
    until the next month, which will be in the snow, a salute to all

    On three occasions over these 60 mountain hikes the Emaxx has fallen by a hillside.
    The first was the most serious,
    Seconds after making this picture when holding the tq3 and inadvertently touching the trigger.

    After 100 meters endless rolling and jumping, broke the union's chassis with the chassis braces.
    In the other two, with only 30 or 40 meters just lost a batterie and scratching the body.

    Second fall, just here e and before tying the emaxx. close the two mountaineers.


    third. Shortly after the third tree on the trail, slope down


    After some time , whenever I go through a dangerous place, I leave the car tied to my belt with a 5 meters extensible dog leash.

    Missing one month to begin the winter and there is already enough snow in the Pyrenees, relatively close to my house to go to visit them.
    in early October I had the occasion to beat the personal record of altitude with my Emaxx in winter conditions rising since 1900 to almost 2800 m , as anticipated in the previous post.
    It was a very gratifying experience that I am happy to share with you and encourage you to do with your emaxx

    Hike # 60 From 'Col des Tentes' to "Bréche de Roland" .
    French-Spanish border, Pyrenees.

    First part of the route up the icy hill of Sarradets


    approaching the wall


    Way to the icy waterfall. The mountain pass is the first 'V' to the right


    Taillon Glacier (3200 m at the top)


    A little later . Mountain refuge of "Brèche de Roland" or "Sarradets" Yes, there is a path that reaches him, but it is not evident from this view.


    Near the refuge, our goal in the background.

    Playing before entering the Glacier of "La breche de Roland 2808 m"


    Glacier of La breche de Roland.


    Going down and coming back to the mountain refuge 2800 -> 2500 m.


    Final part of the descent with a strong inclination side.

    trucktrial, Nothing personal, but I hate you(sarcasm). You have to be in the most beautiful area I have ever seen. I am in the Army and am going to try to go to Germany someday, I just need to convince the wife first. If I get that lucky I am taking some leave and going to Spain, with my Traxxas Summit of course.

    I wanted to commend you on your fantastic photography skills. And on your ingenuity for tying a cord to rear of your E-Maxx, just in case something happens. Good planning.

    I'm looking forward to getting to see that gorgeous countryside someday.

    Hiya trucktrial, may I ask why do you have a dog leash on it? My guess is so if it gets stuck or falls down a hill you can pull it out? Or if it drowns in water!

    Or just because you like to walk your maxx .

    In fact, the auto retractable leash EMaxx serves to pull me on the slopes.
    Really, it is essential in many places with strong lateral inclination , ravines or ice, sometimes the path has no more than hand span in width.
    It is not always easy to stop a fall from a Emaxx.


    As for batteries, please review a little this thread , has already been asked several times, I usually carry up to 30,000 mah -and more- in my backpack.

    Two very recent photos. In my last two hikes. The first below -5 º C.

    Hello everyone, the latter route that I could go with my emaxx have been almost a Christmas gift because the snow is very abundant this year in the mountains north of my country and was keen to test the equipment winter.

    In the snow from 1500 to 2320 m in height.

    Path #62, 'Chinebral of Gamueta' <junipers of Gamueta>

    Going up a hill known as passage of the bear, `Paso del Oso'


    the hardest part of the climb. really hard for the Emaxx ,and also for me. crampons are necessary. below is a small point that is a refuge.


    'Chinebral' mountains and 'Acherito', Western Pyrenees, northern Spain



    Pointing toward the top. Perfect snow for my emaxx.


    Half of the descent. first to the last arrow: Emergency shelter, the mountain pass 'Of the Horse' , and the cars parking.


    The route downhill view from below.This mountain is only an intermediate step.


    Small cottage on the green, only what we expected at the end of the excursion.

    Link to hike #62 (available automatic translation to English)

    up soon, a greeting and happy Christmas to all.

    Hello everyone, going through mountain treks in the snow on this occasion I want to show you some pictures of the hike #63,
    to a place known as "Aguas Tuertas". Had not even started the winter but had a good amount of snow. Tires with Chevrons modified + chains and nails.
