Rc Car to Icemobile




Today I will show you how to turn a remote control car into

an icemobile. This is a easy and fun instructable.


Step 1: Things You'll Need for This Instructable

You'll need half inch wire nails, screwdriver, side cutters, and an RC car/truck.

Step 2: Remove Top

First, unscrew the two screws that hold on the top, and set it aside.

Step 3:

Next, take off the tires [They should slide off with a little work]. Then flip both tires inside out.

Step 4:

Push nails through all the tires [I used fifteen for the back and fourteen for the front].

Step 5:

Flip all the tires right side out, and be careful, it's easy to poked.

Step 6:

Now, push the tires back on the rims [with a little more work].

Step 7:

Lastly, clip off the nails half way down on the front tiers with the side cutters.

Step 8: Enjoy and Vote!

Now it's time to take it out for a spin! It works great for small frozen ponds and puddles!

    great Idea,

    did this with a larger Scale RC car years back. used smaller nails. then filled the rubber wheels with Silicon.
    you dont want to get the tire Diameter to large as the motor will have a hard time spinning the wheels.
    and for the front tires I replaced them with metal blades like skates. wish I had it here to take pictures and show you.
