I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to get my hands on the new Tent Trailer from RC4WD, licensed by Bivouac! This is the Fort XL model of off road trailer (scaled down to 1/10th) that Bivouac makes. I put a TON of info in the video description box for people who want to know more about it. Pretty darn cool, rugged and sturdy. Pretty expensive too.. but if you a scale RC fanatic like I am.. it’s a must have.. haha

I am using my RC4WD Toyota Hilux (Blue) today, while pulling my Polaris RZR side-by-side. I want to see how my truck does while pulling this extra heavy load. My truck is jacked up and quite stiff in the front – but lot’s of flex in the rear suspension. I keep it this way to maintain the height I have the front body of the truck at. All three of these vehicles are RC4WD Trail Finder 2’s – though the bodies are all slightly different. Each truck has been modified by the owners to function as how a full scale truck would. Each RC with a transmission, transfer case, electric brushed motors, steel driveshafts and more. They really can take on a beating! Imagination in the radio control hobby world is no longer limited, and anything these days seems possible.
A special thanks to my very good friends and RC family David Jr, David Sr and Anna! With out these fine folks this episode would not have been made possible. Anna, the lovely daughter of David Sr, helped in filming & driving, and of course the Dave’s (a Father and Son team) always anxious to put on a really good show for our viewers on RC Adventures! Some may remember that David Jr and I did a video on his 1:1 Toyoa Hilux and his replica 1/10th scale truck here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFzSJc9Lwzk

If you are Arachnophobic, or under 6 years old.. you may not want to watch this..
Approximately two years ago I purchased a “pre-order” for one of these amazing remote controlled Robugtix spiders. Though I was supposed to receive it within 6 months of the pre-order date – development of this machine took 3 times longer than planned. The company was very quiet, but dropped updates and status on development on their website. Finally, after a very long wait.. the product was shipped to me, and my order was filled. WOW.. Worth the wait!! haha This thing is down right creeeepy! It is the size of a dinner plate, and operated through a wi-fi system on your mobile device. The T8 sets up a small intranet to chat to the mobile device as you use a platform for joysticks and movement. The GUI could use some work, and is very basic – but functional – barely. Lol. But.. with some practice I think this little spider has some great potential. Scary potential! Who knew we are living ina world with robotic spiders that can carry out commands.. YiKES! Next they will be jumping, flying and landing on you.. haha.
Halloween will never be the same again!

OFF ROAD mayhem ensues when attempting to reach remote camping spots in the deep back woods.. and towing a fifth wheel, triple axle trailer. It’s up to the witts and maneuverability of the two trucks to get things tight and tidy.. and to always get back on the trail! The powerful Chevy Duramax diesel is able to pull this mighty homemade trailer, but it seems that it could use a helping hand on the trail while trying to reach the destination spot. I am driving the Toyota Hilux and I am glad I am equipped with many tow straps and mounting points. I have a 16lb truck – and it is very top heavy. Some may notice that my front suspension is stiff – and the rear suspension has a 4 Link, with softer flex. This is to offset the weight of my Roll Cage and Hard Body.
I sure am glad we were able to get the trailer to the camping spot, as when we went wheelin’ in the MUD it was the Duramax who was able to get us unstuck!
A Special thanks to Ogden RC – AKA Sean for bringing his home made trailer and truck for an RC ADVENTURES film for all to enjoy! Really cool how creative people can get with the Radio Control Hobby
Enjoy the show, my friends!
What a great rig this is! My buddy Everett wanted to take his CEN GST-E Monster Truck out and give it a whirl in our bashing area. I trimmed up the video to keep the parts I know you all would like to see. Starting it off easy, and working his way into it – Everett starts off with the table top, and then on to the Superman Ramp. It takes guts to hit this ramp with your RC, as you know that if it launches.. more then likely, you are going to have something broken. So it’s completely FULL Throttle the whole way.. if you are gunna risk it.. may as well be an epic ride!
The CEN GST-E (Electric) 1/8th Scale Monster Truck really is powerhouse.. and held together like a champ!
Awesome Job Everett! Thanks for the SHOW!
SO GREAT to be outside and enjoying some RC fun. I didn’t let the rain stop me.. I grabbed my gear and headed out. The Radio Controlled truck I am using is a Vaterra Ascender 4×4 (Electric with a 2s Lipo Battery). The sound kit in it is the Ess-One, I found on eBay, and the Tire and rim combo is from RC4WD. The ESC and motor combo is from Team Tekin. It is the FXR & 35t Motor crawler combo. The battery I am running to power the truck is a 4200mah short pack – giving me about 1 1/2 hours of run time. AWESOME! See it on a HUGE outdoor trail course here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGq0wbjsEl4
The jet Boat I am running is a modified “NQD Tear Into” jet boat, that has a 50amp ESC and Brushless motor combo. I am running it on 3s, but have the throttle dialed back to 75%. It sure is a peppy little thing.. and has even more throttle to go! See it running in 100% throttle mode and Class 4 Rapids here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtqW9OiQqZk
I hope you enjoyed todays video.. I did not add music so you can enjoy the sounds of nature and some cool rc machines!
