    Chain Tires

    Getting it done for the first time. It was snowing again and a lot of snow banks outside to crawl, so I did my chain tires today and see what I did.

    Kind a bit loose, but I'll get it done soon.

    Good idea.... but wrong chain... u need chain twice that thickness and a different chain pattern too. A better pattern with more bite, those links u have dont have much bite. I just did a set for a 1/16 Summit with larger chain then that.

    Hanging flower pot chain works great and easy to work with too, cheap and make it almost unstoppable in the snow and ice

    Yes your right, I start using with that one tire, just a bit of a grip, and that chain is hard to do I spend 2 hours linking each other. Good looking anyway. LOL!

    I'm also in the process of making some snow chains, with studs.



    Pics of my prototype.
    Can post more pics tomorrow!
    I tried 2 chains on front tires tonight, and it was really fun to drive! It was a bit wet snow outside.
    Was fun to watch the front tires kick the snow into the air!

    I've had really good luck with my # 14 jack chain from the local hardware store. 30' was about 17 bucks.

    Hey Banzee glad to see you here! You can crawl your summit now above water without drowning it. LOL!

    P.S. looks like we have the same toys.
