Nice! Can you tell us about those custom tires? Did you make them? How do they work in the ice/snow?

That is very cool and a great tip for some added traction for the winter.

Thanks for the pic of the screws you used.

The only thing that concerns me is that if this tip is used on a powerful vehicle, those screws become potential high-speed, flying shrapnel. That is a lot of centrifugal force for those screws to withstand.

Why did you switch from nitro to electric?

What mounting gear did you use?

If u search ebay or even Google for tmax converting electric it will show a electric motor mount.... so I went off of that and made one of my own. Went to Lowe's and got a 1 1/2 wide piece of aluminum and bent and cut with my Drexel works great and also locked the tranny into second gear search you tube for that
