I live in WI, it's winter, I had a long weekend and wanted something to putz with, so I made a plow for my Slash 4x4. It needs some refinement, but at a basic level, it works.
In testing, I confirmed a few things I already suspected. First, I need chains for my tires. I was going to make some anyway, I made some for my old Trenchers, but haven't got a set for the Stampede wheels yet. Second, a plow NEEDS to have a spring loaded tilt. Without one, if you hit a chunk of ice or something, the truck comes to a very abrupt stop. Fortunately, I designed a hinge into the plow mount, so I just need to add a spring and loosen the hinge screws. I'll get more pics posted when I've got it working to my satisfaction.
