    Snow Gymkanah?

    well... stumbled upon this video while looking through things that had nothing to do with Ken Block, Rally VXLs, or gymkanah...

    but I think this would possibly be the coolest RC vehicle on the face of the entire planet.

    It would be really hard to create those tracks on such a small scale. I have seen them made for a Tmaxx before though.

    I can just imagine: Rally VXL uber-tread attatchments! Now you can conquer anything with a rally car!
    I am lucky I don't have any money.

    is that some sort of RC car from radio shack?
    I can't find it on google images. I searched "Radio Shack Matrax"
    and I got a bunch of pictures of women in skimpy outfits and rappers.

    The correct name is Mattracks

    Here's a R/C Hummer with Mattracks

    That looks like it would be a blast to drive in the snow.
    I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.

    I saw the video of the RC ones, and then I thought of 3S... then I thought of rubber dust haha

    If I ever have to design and build a new product for my engineering degree, I might look into smallifying these mattracks for 1/16 or 1/10 scale.
    It would be fantastic!

    Somebody posted a tutoorial for the t maxx that shows how it would fit, with instructions. If the tracks were available in the uk I wouldn't mind having a go. But I'd have to import it, and even then I might have to get the whole RC car - which I don't want to do.

    Why can't we have a radioshack store here?
