    Traxxas Snowmobile???

    Who thinks Traxxas should make a snowmobile?

    I don't mean a cheap one either. I mean they should make a Hardcore race snowmobile that can stand the beatting that a T-Maxx and Revo can take!

    I doubt that they will make something that will not work in all climate areas, but I like the idea!

    I agree with cooleocool. There are more people on here asking for an 1/8th scale buggy or truggy and minis and all that stuff. The climates flucuate so much that there will just be a small window of oppritunity to run it. The only kind of know specific rc that i know of is made by Kyosho and i don't know if those are doing too well.

    That's not just for snow... They actually brought that one back into production after being discontinued for a while, if we're talking about the same tracked vehicle.

    If it was just as big as the Maxx Trucks I don't think Stability would be an issue at all.

    Yeah it should be able to do everything a real one can do like drive on water if you got it pinned.
    I would absolutely LOVE a snowmobile.

    I had one almost imposable to turn. The skis just want to go straight when you turn on packed snow and had a hard time running on powdered snow they're just to light.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    It can get pretty nasty in the Cerro de la Muerte and it does snow very rarely but it never sticks. A brushless waterproof backhoe would be better for you.

    Haha, That's true.
    A backhoe is a good idea, or an amphibian car, for all the rains fall in the year. right now is the rain season(Here we only have 2: summer and rainy), bad week for my T-Maxx.

    Really? When I made my new bright sled brushless (vxl) I didn't have that problem at all.
    Just need the weight in the front and a powerful servo. Maybe a dual 2075 setup.

    i made one that i bought new for $50 into an xl-5 machine, it lasted about 2 days before the track broke it was actually fast but i never got to do anything cool with it because the center of gravity was WAY up (i had to mount the battery on top of the seat) so it would tip over before i could get it anywhere.
    i WOULD buy a new traxxas snowmobile. if it had a good suspension system it would be going over jumps constantly.
    although, it would need to be nitro just for sound effects.

    i thought about making a t-maxx into a snowmobile but the custom milling would cost a fortune, which i don't have (yet!)

    +1 on the snowmobile!!!!!!!
    i tried horses, but i prefer nitro's

    Make your own based on an existing Traxxas chassis (or most of one), post it up and the good please at Traxxas just might take notice. Prototyping a new model is very expensive, they want to make sure they have a good market for a product before they go down that road. Of course, it doesn't seem like they really followed that process when they produced the funny car, but I think that was more of a contractual thing with NHRA.

    Just a ken block rally with integy (?) tracks. Easy to do
    If a RC never breaks, your doing it wrong
