What could go wrong? Riding mountain bikes with an RC car

  • Published on: 16 October 2020
  • Yes, I know nobody asked for these RC videos. I think I got it all out of my system for the time being. Today, we attempt to jump a mountain bike and RC car over a tabletop at the same time. It turns out that this isn't nearly as easy as sending the car or bike alone, as they actually travel at different speeds to clear the same jump. After some technical problems and a steep learning curve, we finally figure out that a bigger battery makes it much easier to time.

    Here's the car Traxxas sent us

    If you're interested in the Maxx, just go to your local hobby shop and they will probably have it. You'll also need a charger, battery, and probably some tools. This thing is an absolute beast! It might need a little polishing after landing upside down about 300 times.

    I actually did this with BMX bikes once. It worked surprisingly good but that’s probably because we didn’t go like 10 feet in the air

    The reason why the rc kept bumping after the jump is the suspension was set to soft

    Hey Seth, become a big fan after happening upon one of your vids. I want to mountain bike in the worst way but I have no experience. My question for you is, I’m turning 45 is it to late for me to start riding like you guys do?

    Hey Seth! I love your videos they’re really cool to watch. I got a suggestion, you should test bike parts, accessories etc from the shop WISH. I see advertising on bike tyres, bike wash etc, and I think it’s be so interesting to see you review some items of your choice!
