You mentioned changing the tires from 3" to 7". Remember the torque of the motor/wheel goes down as the diameter goes up. So changing tire size may make it physically capable of clearing the steps for climbing, the power of the motor/wheel will drop dramatically. Larger wheels require more powerful motors.
Understood. Like I said I am very big into radio controlled rock crawlers. My "super class" competition rock crawler currently runs 2 540 sized motors geared at 48:1 and has plenty of torque and power. I think going up to 6 550's geared the same I should be alright.
If you ditch the snow plow idea, things can be alot cheaper.
Understood, and thank you. I honestly don't plan on going out and clearing neighborhoods with this, but just thought it'd be fun for my own driveway. Like I said this will be more of a toy than anything. I really thought about just ordering the MMP-8, but I want something a little larger.
I know, I am the new guy here and know absolutely nothing, thanks for your vote of confidence.
