Snow Basher from a RS4 MT

Snow Basher from a RS4 MT

Well winter is here, and snow cannot be far behind.
I gave up on an RC Snowmobile and decided to go w/ building a RS4 MT for
winter use.

Anybody have any special suggestions on turning a RS4 MT tinto a serious
Snow Basher.

I was thinking a dish style rim (so as not to collect snow/ice in the
spokes and throw off the ballance) and a paddle style tread (to grip the
loose powder for better traction?).

Are there any special preacutions you'd recomend I take to protect and
potentially vulnerable parts on this vehicle.  (Besides waterproofing
the electronincs.)

Will the drive belts be too stiff in cold weather and cause any
problems?

Has anybody done this already ?.

Any Idea's on how to rig up a working plow for the front of it?-)
