    Try the proline sand paws.



    They give enough traction to wheelie sometimes.

    I love Proline Sand Paws but they just look too big on a MERV for me.

    Yea it's a 1/16. They do look a bit big and they don't allow the suspension to bottom out but you don't really care about it when your blasting through the powder.

    If you got the stock esc/motor try 28/55 with the transmission flipped, That's what I ran when I first got my sand paws. Those pics are two years old...I'm waiting for enough snow to do get it swapped over for it. Heres the videos I got when I was testing them out. First paddled merv on snow on youtube, back in 09'

    Here it is in the powder with a little parking lot running towards the end

    Then heres more ideal slightly melted/packed snow.

    Sorry for the thread jack but I hope this will help cut down on the "what tires for snow" threads that are gonna start popping up soon
