After running my E in the snow for the first time a couple weeks back, came to the conclusion that it needed a few small modifications to make it a but more winter friendly.
The first thing I noticed was the front tires throw snow directly into the battery intakes and, since I am running lipos, I would like to limit that as much as possibel yet still keep a bit of air flow happening. I used a product called centra (approx 1/8" plastic used fro making signs), made a template and then cut and molded it with a heatgun to the propper shape.
Second was the rear suspension was totally plugged with snow after only a few minutes. Using the same centra I made snow guards (or mud guards when I use them in the summer) to help keep the rear arms a bit cleaner. Again, just used some cardboard as a template and 3 zipties hold it to the upper arm.
Lastly I covered all the cutouts in the body with screen (shoegoo works great). I just broke in my new 700ho, installed an Outerwears motor prefilter, threw on the LT rockers with the silver and blue springs and I am now ready for snow.
I am hoping these little changes will keep a bit more snow off and out. Even the dish rims compared to the stock geminis should help to not pack full of snow.
