    It will be powered by 2 servos. One for up/dn, and an other foe turning it right to left.

    My prototype(made of plastic) was powered by my winch, but everytime the plow got stuck, the front of the truck was lifted over it, and the winch wasn't strong enough the keep the plow in position.

    Isn't the warn the same as the 9300xt from rc4wd? if so, i'm not sure it can lift a 15lbs truck.

    Well, if i get to that point, i'll check them... but for now i'll try my plan. Who knows, i might need to winch myself up while plowing, so, having the use of the winch, and the plow at the same time seemed to be a good idea!

    It's not that bad! i prefer waiting a little more and get done right the first time, because the parts will be cut by lazer-robot instead of the plasma-robot!

    That thing is HUGE! Looks awesome and really strong. I like that it is wider then the truck. Very nice designing.

    Thanks, but the first thing i noticed, is that it goes too far on the front, the suspension can,t handle the weight... so i'll have to cut the links to bring the plow closer to rhe front. I will modify it tomorow!
