    Snowmobile Conversion or Sand Paddle Tires for Winter?

    Since winter is coming along with a good amount of snow, I was wondering for snow tires is it better to have a snowmobile conversion kit or some sand paddle tires?

    i'd do paddles, the trax have to much weight for my liking..... plus the paddle will "throw" the snow around.

    Would the tracks be the only option for the mini slash? I haven't found any paddle tires that fit.

    I use snow paddles. Cheap ones but they work definitly awesome. Gear down a Bit and watch the temperature. And especially on Hard snow it runs and drifts very well. Because of its small size, deep Pulver snow doesn't work fine. Less ground clearence and loose snow gets stuck in the Car.

    Get that beetle body, too....it will help keep the snow from getting into the chassis better than the stock body.

    Hey Feivel where did you get those tires?
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.
