we tried doing a vid but it was two dark, got a couple of the car outside on ice but we couldent get any to give the impression of how good they were. they realy were awsome you could get away with puttin 1 line of pins down the middle about a cm apart the car was going NOWHERE SIDEWAYS the grip was awsome considering conditions, if we had put slicks on we woould have been luky to even get any traction. it was a little bumpy but we can deffintely DEFFINATELY se it being a great series on an ice hockey rink,

pics taken down because of bandwidth

we are in the process of contacting local ice rinks, we now have the support of Planet RC www.planet-rc.com who also shares our ambition to race on ice, we have agreed the ice that will be prepared on a propper rink will cause no harm to the cars, infact we wrekon it will kool motors etc down.

yes! its going to happen!!!!! when we get it all sorted we will post as many pics as possible, i cant wait. we are gunna be steering with the Rear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! alllllll the way round!

well, if your doing serious racing its not that expensive. there all pretty much around the 160$ range.

the ice we demonstrated on was crappy and loose, but in the propper races they will be done on an ice rink and the ice on those things is solid as...

well firstly, when he sez "solid as." its this queer english slang thing that nobody but morons use....

also; can i just point out that in the UK they just stick a sign on that $160 price u stated.... which is a heck of alot!

Id love to get one but i can race seriously with no were near that amount electronics!
