    Fun in the Snow Pics

    I took the Slash out for its Maiden Voyage. Its snowing pretty good out right now but it's waterproof.

    Brand New out of the Box



    About 1 1/2" of Snow so far


    Couple action shots, its kinda hard to drive and take pics at the same time. I couldn't talk my wife into coming out in the snow.



    Nice SNOW!


    Heat Gun + Compressor = good as new!

    you should unhook the fan so it doesnt burn up when the blades are blocked. Wish we had some snow here!

    Wish I was brave enough to take mine out in the snow. This is my first (quality) RC truck and I'm a little hesitant to take it out. Looks like a lot of fun though!

    its fine to take it out there, its better than mud. I hose my slash off every time I run it, and its always ready to go.

    Yeah, I thought about that after I started running. Hopefully it still works.

    I made up some snow chains for my 2wd slash and put them on a friends 4x4 yesterday. What a blast that is! Then we put them on a VXL bandit... Wouldn't keep the front end down in the snow!

    I made chains for my 2wd. Way better grip than paddles in the snow.
    Will make 4 new wen my 4x4 arrives.

    Still have a lot of snow on the ground in Oklahoma and got brave enough to take the new truck out the last two days. It was a lot of fun and a lot of clean up afterwards, but well worth it. I need to get over the fear of messing something up and just have fun.
