    Thumbs up tmaxx on ice

    Got our first ice storm of the year here in charlotte. I decided to take the maxx on the ice and boy let me tell ya it was a blast! Did a bunch of 360's and spin outs. It handled quite well on ice. Anyone gets a chance try it out its fun!

    BE SURE TO WATERPROOF YOUR MAXX BEFORE YOU DO!!!!

    Use ballons, condums, plastic bags.. ect to wrap the servos AND radio box....

    Sweeeet man just imagine taking your T-Maxx onto an ice rink!!!

    Still can't drive mine, SO frustrated as I'm waiting for bits from Tower Hobbies, I chose Land shipping, and that was about 2-3 weeks ago, anyone else from the UK ordered from Tower?

    Cheers, ASH

    For the last several years I have run fast electric boats. Here is the stuff that works well. Soak your servos down with it and radio and all. Some actually left the stuff in the servo...others soak it down and then drain off the rest.

    It works...for Snow..it is the way to go.

    Also...balloons for the radio are a must. After running boats you realize what water protection it.
