    RC ADVENTURES - TTC 2013 - FRAME TWiSTER - 4X4 Tough Truck Challenge

    This is our Fifth Year filming this Awesome Event that we call the RC STTC! It's a Scale Tough Truck Challenge for 1/10th Sized, ELECTRiC 4X4 Radio Control Trail Trucks.

    Hosted in Mclean Creek, Alberta Canada - these guys never fail to impress us with the amount of time, effort, energy and sheer drive they have. Tirelessly working to see that the Attendees and the Viewers of RC ADVENTURES get an AMAZiNG SHOW, and have a completely unique experience each, and every year! They are always pioneering new ideas, and skillfully executing these gatherings. It is really awesome to see so many folks come together to have a day of Fun in the Sun, and some Scale Truck Madness!

    The Goal of a Tough Truck Competition is to build the beefiest Truck that can withstand a Day of Torturous events! These trucks are build on a Ladder Frame Chassis or a Tube-based Buggy Chassis, and are Mostly Custom built to the Drivers Specifications & Driving Style. You are NOT allowed to switch out any parts, or battery sizes. What you come with - is what you Compete with! Most events are Distance, or Time based.

    YES - there are EXTRA POiNTS awarded to those competitors who want to try to pull trailers! You get extra points awarded for the scale accessories - but BEWARE - trailers can be your DOOM!

    This video is about the "Frame Twister". Designed to Twist and Turn your Truck into a Sloppy Liquorice stick.. each rig has to push its way through the Rocks, Sticks, Slop and Gloop. Is your Truck Waterproof enough to make it? Now we will find out!


    For the First Time I had someone other than JEM assisting me with the Filming of this Great Event.. as JEM is currently Pregnant with our First Child!

    Everett has been assisting me with Filming in the RCSparks Studio, as well as getting out into the feild to film these amazing events I attend. Not only that he has brought a new dynamic to RC ADVENTURES. Without his help, filming the 2013 TTC would have been even more difficult! Thanks Everett, you just helped entertain Hundreds of thousands of people! I couldn't have done it without ya!

    More videos to come my friends.. !!

    That was quick. Was a great day for sure but apparently I still need to watch my language in front of the cameras. Bad habits I tell you.

    Looks like an awesome day! I can't wait to see the rest! Maybe in the next few years I will find my passport I hid from myself and make the 200 or so mile drive up there for the TTC, looks like fun but also like I need to make my Dingo a bit more bullet proof to run there lol

    Down right insane guys. Looks so much more hardcore then any other year. Watching this on my 55" in full HD was stunning. My 3 year old boy Ashton just goes nuts over your videos and sat and watched with me the entire 29 min. [MENTION=2]RCSparks[/MENTION] he asked me if I could take him next year lol told him maybe.

    Awesome work as all ways.
    It doesn't matter if you win or loose... Just entering in the TTC is enough to get a slice of respect.

    The Judge takes it's toll. I'm pretty sure it caused my transmission to fail.

    The tank trap vid was sick. Makes me wanna trade in my short course trucks for a wraith kit and gelande2.

    Christmas time will definitely see me gettin one. And tax time the other.

    Thanks for the inspiration. I had loved full scale 4 wheeling before I started a family. You have shown me an affordable alternative.
