Design Assets:

After designing & building my 1/4 scale Revs, I felt I needed to simplify the concept of an RC Sno-Cross Race sled.

While studying the Artic Cat 600 SnoPro I noticed it had perfectly placed "pick-up" points for a new light weight yet strong chassis design while most importantly eliminating the step of bending sheet aluminum for the tunnel and various chassis parts.

This 1/4 scale model has a vacuumed formed tunnel and is not a stressed member of the chassis as the frame is underneath the tunnel, much like my very first RCS model made way back in 1980.
