So as many of you may know I have created a Nitro Snowmobile. (Check my blog).
Now that that one has finally broke down, I've decided to the Brushless route now. Here are my reasons:
1. The plastic wont be weakened by absorbing the nitro oil byproducts
2. Quiter, the neighbors wont be mad
3. Low maintenence
4. Don't have to buy glow fuel
5. Much more power
6. Less of a starting hassle
7.Cleaner look

Using a Castle SideWinder SV2 with a 4 Pole 4600KV on 2S. I may try 3S someday

Below is everything that I have bought so far.
Will keep you posted.

Alright, well here is my Nitro Snowmobile. I designed and built this. I had acess to my Dad's work's HUUUGGGE machine shop. And a warehouse full of materials at my disposal
It took me a whole year to get everything just right. It has an onboard glowstarter that can be enabled by a flick of a switch, headlights that brighten and dim as the engine accellerates, (stil working on taillights and turn signals) hobby grade shocks in the rear suspension and in the front.
I am hoping to get a front aluminum suspension made next summer and have it attached to the main aluminum chassis and tunnel that I made.
It has a HPI Nitro Star .15 that has been working flawlessly. Easy starts, good running. Just give it a little heat with the heat gun in the winter and pull about 3 times.
I usually use my Futaba 8Fg 2.4 for this RC, because it has 8 (14) channels for all of the accessories, and I don't see the point in buying a whole new 4ch pistol grip radio.

I am just using a standard S3003 servo, and it turns the skis with plenty of power.

The dirve train was the hardest part. I believe I need to add to it orstrenghten it/rebuild it. I am having too much spur gear wobble.

I am using a plain old .15 sized airplane muffler. No room for a pipe.
The airplane muffler provides plenty of power and I routed a tube from the muffler out where a normal snowmobile's tube would go, and it looks sweet and works great It also gives it a differen't sound, which is awesome!
I also wen't with the airplane muffler because it is quieter than a conventional tuned pipe. This way I can run it in my backyard without any noise complaints.

Edit: I realized that I really need to find a rider.

I was looking through the fence of the Cirrus Factory taking pictures, when a pilot comes and asks me if I want to come and see one! I said YES!!
Here are some of the pictures! He even let me sit inside!
In one picture one is taking off in the background!
I love Cirrus planes and want to be a pilot someday....

This is my snowmobile with the older mods. It couldnt do jumps and didn't have a suspension. It was good conditions for speed though.
