What could go wrong? Riding mountain bikes with an RC car


Yes, I know nobody asked for these RC videos. I think I got it all out of my system for the time being. Today, we attempt to jump a mountain bike and RC car over a tabletop at the same time. It turns out that this isn't nearly as easy as sending the car or bike alone, as they actually travel at different speeds to clear the same jump. After some technical problems and a steep learning curve, we finally figure out that a bigger battery makes it much easier to time.
Here's the car Traxxas sent us
If you're interested in the Maxx, just go to your local hobby shop and they will probably have it. You'll also need a charger, battery, and probably some tools. This thing is an absolute beast! It might need a little polishing after landing upside down about 300 times.

    You should do a feature on your show with trail forest cams! Where you live, bobcats and coyotes are common I assume. It's an easy video as well. I think many people into bikes are also into nature. I'd like to see trail cam updates every month. Anyone else?

    oh and btw I race other people, pretty fun. there are some smaller gaps and some very big ones. when you aren't racing you can go in-between the tracks and flip over upside down cars. I'm lucky to have the track very close to where I am and a Traxxas store about an hour away. if you're thinking about getting one of these, I would recommend it. they are a bit pricey but I love them

    Hey Seth, I love your videos and content and was wondering if you could give us an update on your coil shock. I think this would really help a lot of people out, and since you have ridden it for a little bit you could speak to the durability/reliability and also the feel for jumps and other features. Thanks!!
