Looks cool and agree slow motion suspension work is nice. Not sure what scale it is, but I do have to say its sorely missing a rider. So once the snow melts, can you put on big front skiis and skim the lake in summer?

the sled is a 1/8th scale . i agree about the driver . the sled is very tippy , and the driver would make it top heavy and worse. as for the water if i could get a paddle track , she might do it. ha! ha! thanks for watching and the comment.

Very nice! I've got the same one (two actually, one stock, one not). I'll have to get video of mine next winter, or throw the wheeled skis on it.

I've got a 2848 2200kv motor and 3s2200mah lipos in mine.

It's not a rocket, but I didn't want it to be since they're pretty tippy. Mine looks pretty stock on the outside, the only non stock part you can see is the adjustable tie rods I'm using for steering instead of the stock fixed length rods.

I have to pull it apart to modify the drive pulley so it slips less under load, when I've got it apart I'll get more pictures.

yeh mine isn't a speed demon either . but it does 10 times better than stock. i put holes in my track and made 1/8 thick aluminum drive dogs. i have vids of the build on my you tube channel. just incase your curious.
