Dang that sun gear is dunzo
Ring and pinion gears are also toast. The other sun gear is missing a tooth, presumably from eating the other bits of its brother's backside. The lsd plates also got all bent up as well.

My theory is that this was caused by the ring/pinion failing. It started slipping/skipping and my guess is that the shock of slip to grab broke the pin recess on the sun gear. Oops.

Those should hook up pretty good! 👌


I found a solution for flooding the track, runs off a cordless drill.

I'm hoping so.

I saw something similar. I think someone tried one of those last year and didn't really work very well. I'm hoping a little melted yesterday and today and refreeze before we get snow.
Fyi. Gonna head down on Saturday. Probably more just for track maintenance with the snow coming.

That’s cool, I’m super busy with work now, so not sure when I’ll be able to make it out again... hopefully @Dutch had some time to make a set, he needs to get down there and check it out. It’s super fun!! 🤩
Actually everybody in the MN group should check it out! 👍

Yea, it's a blast. Everyone should check it out. Hoping with the new snow that we can work on some bashing areas for non-ice racers.
Winter bashing and Ice Racing. 800 water st St. Paul.

Have had no time to do anything, life just keeps getting in the way of my RC fun, hope to have some time next week and get something ready for the track or at least make it down there to check it out 🐄

Heading down to the Ice track tomorrow. Bring a shovel. Finally going to get some snow to build some jumps.
