Jumping a 30ft gap with a Traxxas Slash 4×4 Ultimate Edition Radio Controlled Truck


I have made the jump 30 foot from peak to peak – and I made it at such an angle it throws the RC high in the sky – or, at least that it is what it is designed for. This is my Traxxas Slash Ultimate edition. When purchased it comes with all the aluminum upgrades already done. To power this truck (everything is stock) I am using a 3s 5000mah lipo battery. Its a hard case, and quite heavy. For the tires, I am using Proline Racings brand of paddle or “scoop” tire. The truck handles great in the air, and I look forward to jumping this truck again!

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”.

RiVER RESCUE Attempt – Chevy Beast 4×4 Radio Control Truck

The BEAST is unveiled as a Rescue truck.. but the first mission could have gone a little better.. Rough waters..

(1080p HD for the clearest water viewing), What a crazy scenario out in the woods again. Some 4×4 Ya-hoo got himself stuck in the creek completely killing his jeep in a waterfall. No Power, and the wheels are locked. The Beast Chevy moved in to take a hold of the situation – but truly, this was a crazy event. The fast moving water and the unstable rocks made this rescue attempt a very dangerous one. Don’t worry – all people were recovered from the fast moving waters – and no one was hurt. Thankfully!

We also recovered the the vehicles – though they were a little water-logged! haha

My Red Truck (Rescue Truck) is not completed. I am still awaiting the windshield, light kit, headlight covers and a few other things to arrive. It’s a work in progress!

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!

RC ADVENTURES – Launching a Losi 5T 4×4 Radio Controlled Gas Powered Truck


I’m teaching my Losi 5T learn how to fly today – and I think it did a pretty good job! Now all I need to do is add some wings to it. But, one of the things I have to consider is that the vehicle itself is about 40 POUNDS! I have done many many videos about this great truck – here is the whole collection of my 5T videos: http://bit.ly/1sKlNXd

My videos include a look at the truck when it is in stock form.. which is still very impressive!

Unboxing the Losi LST XXL2 1/8th Scale Gas Powered Monster Truck


YES! I finally have one at the Studio and I have to say – I have always imagined Radio Control Monster Trucks being Gas powered, and when I was younger – I was shocked to find out that all RC’s that had engines were running on Nitro. Well, the day has finally come that I own a Gasser! SO SUPER DUPER COOL! I don’t know too much about this truck as I haven’t run it yet – so I can’t really give any operating opinion yet – but I can say that this thing is impressive to look at! In this video I unbox this monster truck and let you peek at whats under the hood!

I know a lot of folks ask me to give information in the video description, so here it is:
