WHAT DO YOU DO, When the Snow KEEPS Falling?! MAKE BIG JUMPS, and JUMP BiG RC TRUCKS! The Snow issticky, and just right, and my Kraken Vekta 5 (1/5th scale) Race / Bash Truck is ready to launch. So many of us have waited for this moment.
Fortunately for me, it is only -2c today.. and the snow is verrrry sticky...Snowball-like. The down fall of that.. is it makes my truck VERY HEAVY when its loaded up! Stock Weight of this truck is about 43lbs with Engine installed - and with this type of snow - a truck can easily weigh 60lbs at any given time.
Whats amazing about the torque on this truck is the Kraken is SO powerful, that on a slippery surface (ice and snow) you can really get some amazing wheels speed and rooster tails of snow/mud!
Im interested in the new Kraken tires that have been floating around.. I wonder if they would be any better in the snow. Either way.. I put a beat down on this truck today.. and it took every lick. The ONLY issue I had was an ERROR on MY PART.. where a Set Screw wasnt tight enough on the back camber adjustment. It allowed my axle to pop free. It was a 5 minute fix... and I was ready to go for next time.
As a side note - a complete tear down is a good idea when running in snow and ice. I always clear and re-grease my bearings - lubricating all joints and such. Also note, I use water proof servos and electronics - which make it easier to clean up after a sloppy bash session!
I hope you enjoyed this video - please, Like, comment & SUBSCRiBE!
