Snow fun with my Clod

Got a chance to run my Clod over the weekend in my yard. Plenty of snow, and plenty of fun!

Looked like a few tense moments at the 50 second mark.
Looks like it runs pretty well. :thumbsup:

Thanks Andy! There was a thin layer of ice on top of the snow and the weight of the truck had me sinking in a lot. The run went well but there were a few consequences. The rear fire bolt started stinking pretty bad and also I somehow fried the battery. I swapped the fire bolts for some 550 Titan 12T's I had laying around. Also ordered an RC4wd diff locker for the rear. You can tell in the video it definitely needs it. Hopefully that'll be here by the weekend so I can do a part 2 and see the difference and how it performs with the new motors. Didn't get around to buying a new battery yet, so I may drop down to a 2s or an 8.4 nimh.

Looks like you had fun! I thought you were going to be stuck too like Andy pointed out. We have the same thin layer of crust here as well, but a light layer of snow on top.
