Remote control toys are fun. I could easily spend hours running my RC cars around the yard. I used to run several tanks of gas through my RC truck whenever I ran it. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do that recently due to a dead starter battery.

Today I watched a video of a RC Jeep that a guy mounted a snowplow to. He used to to clear the snow off of his sidewalk. His was an electric model, so it was no problem using it in a moist environment. It made me want to get my RC truck working again. At this point, I have no idea if just a new starter battery is all I need. It has been a few years since I last ran it.

I actually wouldn’t mind selling it and getting a smaller 1/10th scale truck. My current truck is a 1/8th monster truck and quite large. Larger also means replacement parts are more expensive.
