Brushless and Nitro RC Snowmobiles

Hi guys,
So with all of these big snowstorms going around I thought I'd post this. Some of you may have noticed my projects on RC Snowmobiles.
I buy kits from a machinest in Canada and build these awesome machines.
He also does them himself, but can be very hard to get ahold of, and is very buisy. It also costs a lot more to ship the completed sled to you from CANADA!
Just a cheapo Wal-Mart sled converted to serious brushless power!
(I can do NITRO setups TOO!)
It has a complete aluminum suspension-front and rear. Aluminum motor mount as well.
I have some nitro videos as well, check my blog or contact me.
I must note that they are out of date though, and my newest versions are much higher performance.

Has LED's all the way around for brake light, head lights, and side turning lights.

These sled can pull wheelies and top out at around 50MPH.
PM me and we can talk about what setup you would like to go with, (4 cell, 2 cell, Castle Creations, different brands, etc.)

new bright RC snowmobile brushless (6 min 38 sec)

onboard new bright snowmobile with 3 cell lipo and only 3/4 throttle (5 min 5 sec)

rc snowmobile new bright brushless (9 min 54 sec)

Can either get it in the red or yellow scheme.
All up cost (without radio system) is around $500-$600. Can be less, somtimes more. Depends on your setup.
Please note that the picture dates are incorrect.

Newbie but coming on fast

I want one!

This is so cool it makes me wish I lived where we got more snow every year!

Assuming these are custom made, are you using stock car/truck parts? How much is hand/home made? How long is the run time? It almost seems as though they are too light and could easily burn out the motor.

why am i here???????
wow these are definatly nice. i use to see rc snowmobile kits but they cost a small fortune. once i get the money i may decide to get one from you only a couple of changes from what ive seen. i wonder if they could handle sand in the track system. would be fun to run around the dunes with an rc snowmobile. ive been working on an rc sand rail would be nice to have an rc sled to go with it. but i gotta get my crawler going to tow them out to the beach.

Must note that I cannot take credit for the building of the aluminum parts, a friend built and designed them.
Videos are also his.

I mut say that I do not make much of a profit at ALL building these. MAYBE $50.

Pretty cool,I used to have a very fast 2000 artic cat 600 VEV first year they made it. I hada race company mod the engine. It was scary fast it would smoke a the first year 700 firecats or any thing for that matter in a 1000 feet run. I met a friend up at our normal drag strip on snow he was running a ski poo 800 that he though was fast till he came up against me. Iwould beat him in 1000ft run by 20 to30 sleds.My other friend had a sx 700 triple yamaha he had to put about a grand into pipes and all sorts of stuff to even stay with me. The sx yamaha dogs wouldn;t transfer the weight to the track no matter what he tried. It would just sit and spin.
A couple things I think would help your sled is softening the rear suspension so it willsquat down more in the rear transfering the weight more ontothe track. It would be a happy medium tough and you would lose some some steering, but you seam to be plowing a lot of snow making me think you could get some weight of the front and still steer. You could alsotry some lind of weight sled on a gyro so when you turn it would shift the weight onto the inside skithis would help it turn by putting more weight on the inside ski and it would help it from rolling. I wish I could afford one to play around with andd try to improve on the design. It;s pretty cool all the same. My sled had had 190 woody'ies gold diggers studs that sat the track about almost an inch off the ground when on cement.It would flip you over in a heart beat if you were not ready for it and sitting way up on the seat. I finally sold it to a friend who didn't listen to me first time he road it I told him you better hold on real tight or it will yankyou off the back. We were outon the ice and sure enough he did not listen and lucky I had a teather or the sled would have went half way across the lake. he got laughed at by me and are buddies

Here is a link to his sleds the white one is Jim's what the whole video towards the end you can see a front view of him launching. He does not drive them he is a big guy he puts a little guy on them for all the speed he can get. He holds 15 world recordsto date. I should go out tothe lake before the ice melts and get some video of him stomping so chit. Enjoy

Here is one more jim built a few years older than my cat but a whole lot more beef cakes than mine.

I just watched the video on the cement has pleanty of power hard tell if its squating and getting the weight transfer. I bet it would be real fun on about an inch or two of a hard pack sno. I just watched the first few runs going to watch the rest.
