    Mattracks

    I read about someone buying a RC Hummer from Radio shack that had Mattracks (tank treads on each wheel). I would love to have a proper set og mattracks for my Summit.. something Durable. and the proper scale. I have been searching for different kinds of tracks.. tracks used on RC Tanks, whatever i could find. so far i havent found anything appropirate.

    Has anyone else looked into it?. I would like to engineer something. I have access to CNC mills and could get something made im sure (if i put enough money into it)

    awesome!, thanks for the link.. I hope they dont take too long to release them.. they said it was for AX10 and T-rex 60. so will this look too small on the summit?

    That is all the cheap Radio Shack stuff. They will work, but will break quickly under the stress of a heavy truck like the Summit. Best to wait for the good ones and run snow chains in the meantime.

    I hope that's not the tread pattern they will be using when they sell it, wayyyyyy to small
    anything can be fixed with duct tape and zip ties
