    You could try getting the replacement plow parts from kyosho for the blizzard rtr. There is also tons of guys that own the blizzard but have converted it to brushless and dont use the plow for it anymore, so do a search on ebay too. Id love to build one myself, but we get way too much snow here. Good luck!

    Heres a vid i saw on youtube of the blizzard:

    I don't think the MERV will do very well when plowing snow... However, please prove me wrong!

    That is what I was thinking, just too small. But, I would love to see what you come up with!!!

    Here is a home-made plow:

    It turned out really well.

    One thing you can do to get the MERV better suited for snow is to get a set of Matttracks for it, they make them for 12mm hubs.

    make sure it goes past the wheels to cover them, and also angling it to the side helps w/ pushing problems. If you have spare gutter aluminum meterial sitting around, that works perfect for a blade because it is light and sturdy. It will take time to profect your set up though
