Damn good looking truck! But in the words of Serena Ryder, your black and white needs a little bit of red.

I think Shaggy should be the "navigator"...Scooby should be the driver.

Shaggy has been the ‘mechanic’ thus far. Not sure he is up for the on board duties as he has been in the sauce lately . As for Scooby, he is nowhere to be found these days(I don’t actually have a Scooby() Snoopy has been hanging around, but his loyalty remains with Charlie. Seriously though, I am working on an simple lexan interior just have to finish it off. I am sticking with a snow/winter oriented theme on this shell

The Capra I'm finishing is also "snow white"....but, it's not Snow White.

Lol, yeah we had a big hit of snow in October but it melted away. We have a light dusting now, but need a good dump. Great pic, looks fun! ....and reminds me, I need to mount up the licence plate

True...but, it's white for an entirely different reason. The Capra does have a theme, but it's not winter...and, it doesn't involve Tyrion, John, Cercei, or Daenerys.

Btw how goes the search for a fleece bag you can stuff your hands and transmitter in? I know there are some overly-fancy ones for flying, but we don't need a plastic window to see the tx.

That looks like it would do the trick to at least take the edge off. Especially if it were some sort of insulated wind proof material.

Thing is it has to be big enough to not cramp the tx.

Absolutely. The one in the link you showed may not be wide enough in the middle. Perhaps one day Iíll look into getting a custom one made.Really, you want it to be narrow towards the wrists with a wide spot in the middle Where your hands meet the transmitter

Exactly. A drawstring or zippered polar fleece bag featuring two 6-inch sleeves at the sealed end (with stretchy cuffs) sticking out at 90 degrees from one another to form an upside-down vee when you look down.

Fresh snow today, so I'll be further testing the Transmitter Muff. I shared this concept with my facebook crawler group yesterday and reaction ran the gamut--some thought it was the smartest ever and others asked me to kindly leave the hobby.

One gent said nice try, but skin-tight gloves are today available. I was let down, however when he posted a link. I own them, and they are bulky, not warm enough (for me--average fingers).

Anyway, I can report that the TM kept my hands from freezing yesterday, and I quickly forgot it was there at all. Pretty simple, just an old (we're talking 90s) MEC zip-up fleece pullover and two zip ties. The kind of thing you could throw together if you drove out to crawl somewhere and discovered it was colder than you thought.

ps: I am btw, NaturallyRC on YouTube.

I think what you have in the video is definitely on the right track. Your description is perfect, the idea is to eventually not even notice it is there. I donít know how cold it gets there where you are, but skin tight mitts are not warm enough up here in the winter. Something like what you have there should be perfectly warm and functional. If you can pull your Hands out and have the muff hanging around your neck with the transmitter held securely in the middle than I think you are golden
