    as ejohnson says....looks like the dogs are winning.

    Our yorkie loves chasing mine.......believe me it's a great way to exercise the dog

    Unfortunately we don't get much snow over here, otherwise I'd be building ramps, jumps and tunnels like crazy.

    Great vid.

    I'll have to see about posting some of mine.

    At least you have a large enough yard to turn in with those tires
    My sig is way extra more better than yours!

    Nice... but poor black dog was run over you could hear his squeal..

    few questions;
    - how did you keep the electric parts dry ?
    - how did maintain good engine temp in such weather ?
    - what are these tires ?
    - your revo looks higher than stock, how did you raise it this much ?

    Thanks,

    few questions;
    - how did you keep the electric parts dry ?balloning or plasti dip or just ran it anyway
    - how did maintain good engine temp in such weather ? rap the head in foil or sometimes they just run warm enough

    not sure about the tires

    maybe he put the pushrods in the inner whole to raise it.
    hope this helps

    HI Again....
    I ran the revo as is no protection on electronics, My reciever hasn't been wet yet behind the covers, the only thing I have been concerned about is the optidrive. and the servo's are supposed to be a little water resistent, so after my runs I open up the access doors for the electronics and I stand it on it's front bumper in front of a heater till it dries out.

    I find it runs awsome in cold weather never gets to hot. I keep it indoors till I go to start it up then take it outside and fire it up outside the door. haven't had an issue starts great idle's even better.
    Tires are Maxx Paddles from Proline with proline dish rims 1/2 inch offset ( they work well I would almost suggest not getting the offset but it makes it less tippy).
    And last yes I did raise it I have the Long Travel rockers with the stiffer spring for them..
    I am always sure to dry it out completely
    And in the end I am willing to sacrifice the electronics. Servos, reciever, optidrive, and optidrive sensor are all a dime a dozen on 3Bay.
    To finish no animals were hurt in the production of this video..
