Question
Snowmobile



Somebody actually threw this out so I grabbed it!
No ski's and no transmitter, but it looks like it was never played with.
The motor looks to be a 380 or a 400, I'm thinking about throwing regular RC gear in it, has anyone else tried that with one of these?

Yeah, it is flimsy but a lot of detail. It was made out of aluminum and with a standard 540 motor it probably be something. But I'm farting around with it anyway and put regular RC gear in it. No snow to test it out on though. :'( I was looking at it and I think I might be able to stick a regular motor on it after making a bracket to hold it. Maybe next year. I'm going back to working on boats and a tank.

Very nice. I was going to grab one of those cheap ones on amazon just to toy around with on cold days. BUT since here in Michigan, we have currently ZERO snow, I wont be ordering one anytime soon lol. Let us know what you do with it, I have heard nothing but bad things for anything rc snowmobile related.
