10×10 Project: OSHKOSH LVSR MKR18 Heavy Cargo Transport System


I have had a great BREAK THROUGH! It came to me while surfing the net researching military machines.. and I figured out how to do this. Everyone always asks me about the “Capo” 8×8 truck I built a few years back. I never used it very much – and in this video I explain why.

I also have 5 RC4WD Bully Ver 2 Comp MOA Rock Crawler Axles. I want to do an Overkill Overhaul.. but now I’ve decided to build an entirely New Rig. I have figured out a worth-while marriage for these two rigs by using the principles I learned from BOTH MACHiNES. It is time to build the ULTiMATE MiLITARY TRANSPORT MACHINE.

I can’t think of a better conversion for PROJECT OVERKiLL, then a “LVSR MKR18 HEAVY TRANSPORT VEHiCLE”! LVSR stands for “Logistics Vehicle System Replacement”.

Rock City Adventure Part 1 – by Chet Ophus


We made it back for another round. This time, we took along someone new to my videos, Joe. He brought along his Redcat RS10 and I had my Dodge SCX10 and Alex had his amazing Jeep SCX10. The three of us took on Rock City and explored sections of Rock City we hadn’t taken on before. This is Part 1 so make sure to watch for Part 2.

I also tried a new intro and outtro I put together so let me know what you guys think!

Trail Trucking – Forest Recovery, Knight Hauler with Ford AeroMax on Trailer


On a regular basis the RCSparks Trucking company needs to transport rigs that have been repaired or have mechanical issues in and out of the bush. We have found that these trucks are under immense stress when being used to haul heavy equipment. The only problem is, these backwoods trails are extremely difficult to maneuver – and if the driver is not experienced, he can easily end himself, and his truck/payload in BiG TROUBLE. These Semi Trucks are built for brute strength.. but can they traverse the crazy Canadian Outback? It’s up to you to discover!

Unboxing a Vaterra Ford Raptor Pre Runner 4WD Truck RTR w/ AVC Technology


Finally, I have an “AVC” or “Active Vehicle Control” RC vehicle here in the studio with me. I have been curious about this new technology. I find it intriguing that a truck will now actually “sense” its own stability. I am excited to put this to the test. BUT! First, I have to unbox it for all of the RC ADVENTURES viewers!

Rigid Industries Jeep JK – Axial SCX10 4×4 Radio Control Truck


This is a special addition to my collection of scale off road trucks. It is a rare find – 1 of 8 only made. It profiles one of my favourite 1:1 scale accessory companies – Rigid Industries. Rigid is the leading manufacturer of forward projecting and auxiliary LED lighting products in the world. I have a several Rigid leds on my full size, daily driver 1:1 truck (seen here: http://youtu.be/S2ddTbrJfGs). Every 4 wheeler should have some awesome lights.. even the RC ones!
