    I remember on the other forum about a year ago, there was a company making a 2 stoke 1/4 scale snowmobile. Has anyone seen any new info on it?

    i don't recall the name of them, seen it on the bay too.

    but don't fret, theres a guy in Canada that has done some STELLER work making a few variable of RC Sleds. The word is he has contracted a company that currently purduces top of the line pan racers to produce some or all of them.
    check his work here

    www.rcsnowmobiles.com

    Some Very Crafty work, he does have one model, a Bombadier ofcourse, like all of his models, useing a 16cc hommie motor. i say keep the motor and lets talk TS ESP Reed Case motor! or a Boss 23cc reed case motor!

    Nice find Timmahh...that little nitro sled looks very sweet. I'd still like to see a a baja size sled with gasser engine. A gas engine would be a lot less of a pain in the winter.

    One of the MX is fit with a Homolity 2 cycle 16cc motor.
    don't mistake teh size Tulz. the gasser is about 25 inches long its not no small toy!

    Design Assets:
    This model was also created to provide the viability of the “GAS” Ignition RCS concept in any winter weather condition.

    The durability and performance have shown this goal has been attained with this 1/3rd scale RCS design.

    The “GAS” engine gives excellent torque and reliability, easy to maintain and start, also cheaper to run than the “Nitro” version.

    1/3rd scale sleds can handle bumps, jumps, hills and slopes. The wide stance lets this machine perform much like full size snowmobiles. The scale design of components replicates the intended purpose of each item.
    A Medium Speed RCS Model.



    now pull the light duty homie, toss in the MADNESS of your Desire. and HANG THE HELL ON!
