Default ANYONE HAVE A KYOSHO NITRO BLIZZARD?

I was just outside ripping up the backyard with mine The Old girl runs simply stunning . And I got it back in 1998 and run it almost every winter as long as we have enough snow. I won't run it in the summer ! Summers are for racing 1/8 buggies!!
It has the stock engine in it too. Only mod it has is the carb has been bored out slightly , seems to run WAY better after the mod (was done first season)
And last season I introduced it to a new fuctional exaust stack. Tee'd into the existing system
It's not fast but definately fun to navigate trees and the hill behind my house . I bet it has at least 3-4 gallons of fuel through it . And is all stock except for bearings to replace bushings in all the drivetrain.
I'll post some pictures if anyone want's to see it

I like it, I have never seen one before. No snow round here for it but I guess you can use it anywhere.

I can't use one here either, but I was always interested in different nitro rc vehicles. Some guys here bitched Kyosho America for bringing this in, but not the Spada 09 1/12 nitro onroad car released last year.

Default Nitro Blizzard

I have one too. I have replaced all of the bushings with bearings. Did anyone realize that in the two speed gear set on the QRC Xmission has a bushing there too? I replaced it with a bearing as well when I found out. I also found out where the clicking sound was coming from. The center sliding gear with the pins bounces on the steel pins on the fwd drive gear. It is causing no wear , but the sound is annoying. This happens especially when running in the heavy snow when the load on the drive train is the highest. I drive my Blizzard in the summer too on the grass. It works good. It is a good break when I don't feel like running my T -Maxx.
