Any and all videos that don't fit in other threads, post here. It's fine if you want to post a song here but preferably non-musical videos. We have several threads devoted to that. Sometimes, I don't want to clutter Random Thoughts thread even though it's permissible. Is this okay? Mods, If this thread is redundant or can be blended with a video thread that I don't know about, be my guest. Thanks.

That looks like fun. Are you really going to do this or were you joking?
...oh heck no I wasn't joking!.....I used to "pilot" many a Cox gas powered vehicle when I was a kid, and since then I've had an assortment of toy style R/C, but I've bought into the Beginner level of adult Radio Control......these trucks are 1/10 scale and have been clocked at actual speeds up to 45 mph, and other styles go even faster....this is the unit I just bought.....

That's awesome. Some friends and I used to race ours and build obstacles when we were kids. Remote control airplanes, too, although I didn't have my own plane. Too expensive.
Yeah, I was going to ask about speed because the one in the video was bookin', lol. The ones I remember lumbered over dirt mounds and sounded like a wheezing garbage disposal.

And now you bring your kamikaze driving style to the R/C world? ;)
