Whilst out running my tanks with a friend we came across this swampy puddle and I couldn't resist !. This is not how you should treat a 30 year old vintage model ;) Still, it's more fun than just running them round on the paitio or lounge carpet, which seems to be the preferred terrain of the scale tank. I've got some 'on tank' video camera footage of this, which will hopefully be going onto U-tube shortly and I will provide links to them on my thread in the BRASA forum. Not even twin 540s could pull it out of this mess lol

This could be a problem......... Would somebody like to get out and push ??? I drove it off in this state 1

MadInventor it may not seam the best idea after 30years but this is what they where designed for 30years ago so why not. It looks more real than chasing the cat around the living room. Last pic looks great.

Thanks for taking the time to comment everyone. @Steelrat, Yes, great fun, I went back and forth across it about 4 or 5 times, perfect scale mud !!
@Dam10, It wasn't too bad to clean. After I extracted it I ripped it up and down on a bit of hard ground and 90% of the sludge flew off. Afterwards I simply took off the racks and cleaned them with the hosepipe, and the same for the roadwheels. I've got waterproof ESCs fitted in it, so only really got to be careful with the Receiver and V tail splitter for the ESCs. Re, the videos, my co-driver is going to upload them onto Utube over the weekend. There will be quite a few as I've got video footage from a previous run to go through as well. There's a taster video already in my movies section, it was the only one under the 30mb limit, all the others will be 720p so no chance of getting them on TC hosting
