    Snow Build!!!

    I am going to go to taos new mexico to go snow boarding thursday night. i will be there through the weekend. so i figured to throw something together out of the spair parts i have floating around that i could bash in the snow when im done boarding. im using an os 18tm with a big team losi header, resonator pipe, lunsford turn buckles, rpm all the way around, talon tires in the rear, proline gladiator 2.2 in front (the prolines are on rear rims but i put a bearing on then the rim on backwards then another bearing on and tightened the nut down then backed it off a half turn, no slop and i think they will work great) about an hour or so to put together.

    Even with 2WD you'll be fine. I was driving my Jato around in the snow today and it gets around pretty good despite being 2WD.

    The Paddles I heard just dig in the snow. Pro-Line Mulchers or Chains would be better for powder snow. IMO.

    Cool, you are luckey you have so many parts laying around to do that. And you are luckey that you get to go snowboarding, I haven't bean it 3 or 4 years. I have all my gear ready to go, just I can't drive legally yet. I am going to try to get a ride with my friend the next time he goes up.
