    Snow Pede ! ! Twin VXL ! !

    The Stampede got some changes for Winter time Fun !

    Pro-Line 2.8" Sand Paw
    Dubro Skis
    Twin VXL systems
    Sky Lipo 11.1v 5000mAh 40C
    Just used a simple flat stock of Alum to connect the 2 Rear assemblies. Also trying out running just 1 battery to power both systems. First run it did well running single battery. Had plenty of power to lift the Ski up

    Need to get another set of Pro-Trac arms for the Rear Pod.


    Finally hit the snow ! but didn't make it before dark. Hope to get some daytime pictures and video !

    Twin VXL's and 11.1v Lipos - The sound the Twins make is so cool ! !

    Ever tried tire chains yet. I bet those would scream looks like it has plenty of power. Looks like 32p gearing am I right? What are they geared at?

    Sure is 32p .....

    Right now I'm geared 56/15 on 3s.. I need to buy another 15 pinion, so right now the rear motor is geared 58/16 since I didn't have 2 of the same pinions, but I got 2 56 spurs and 58 spurs, but since its on snow its all good ! I have wanted to make tire chains for my 2.8 Trenchers...

    Twin VXL.....why Not .....

    Used Rear Shocks on the Front to gain some more Ground Clearance since The Dubro Skis are short

    Super Cool winter basher! Those 2.8's seem to work A LOT better than the 2.2's that were on the Slash

    Very nice! I'm not able to see the video on my I-Pad Is it on YouTube ? Chains do work well and are easy to make but most of the videos I've seen with the paddles seem to work very well. Awesome modding !

    Ya I wouldn't think chains added to paddles would do any better. Most of my Snow driving is in loose deeper snow. But I do want to make a set of Chains for my Trenchers for when I run on the Snow packed road.
