Default Clod snow tracks

Been working on this for awhile. Got it running and been blasting around in the soft sand/dirt. Retains the 4 wheel steering. Currently using Integy 85T motors, but will try the 45T for more speed, and maybe a snow roster tail.

[IMG][/IMG]Next time I take it apart I'll do a few more shots. The aluminum housing holding the wheels slips over and bolts to the Hot Racing steering knuckles. The stock plastic Clodbuster hub slips inside the sprocket and is held by 6-3mm screws, a barrel nut holds the sprocket on. There's about 1/4" of wheel travel, and you can adjust the spring tension for the travel.

I agree...I assume those are Blizzard tracks (I'm not totally sure though) but are they shortened? Nicely done though

The Blizzard SR tracks come in two sections per track that you screw together. The wheel set up was based on that.
