you might be able to bash in it. i mean just keep snow out of the body. and the motor will probly stay dry as long as it doesnt hit the snow itself right?

ok you say you want your pede to spyder like a revo can? it wont do near what a revo can, but i can get you up onto atleast 2 tires. first, look up wide stampede conversion on yahoo or google. that will add a lot of flex to it. after that is when you want to loosen your suspension a little bit. a tad bit softer springs. it wont jump as good with softer suspension, but it wil ltake the rough better.

ya your right never know till I try it!!!!!! Maybe I can create a tire gaurd for each wheel to keep the snow from flying up into my electronics ....kinda like wheel welds on a car or truck..... 2 liter bottle cut into 4 pieces with something to hold them stable mounted to the A-arms .....LOL Or just saran wrap everything probably better and less time consuming..

you can use a ballon to wrap your servo, as for the ESC you'll have to get like a Mtronics esc their water proof! but I have to agree it's better to just hold up and wait for the dry weather, you need to move to where it don't snow!LOl's

ok. well it is more of a racing truck than a beater. but it will take a beating for sure. how big of jumps are you plannign on doing? i mean if you can get it for the same price and want somethign probly a little more competitive and tunable, the nthats what you should get.
