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

6 768
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.

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!

stock setup isn't going to work good. needs heavier oil and springs in it. front end is bottoming way too easy... that's why it's bouncing out of control. surprised the "professional" rc driver doesn't know that.

Man, I don't ride mtb, I do bmx, but I swear every time I click one of your videos I end up watching 10, theres such a casual and cool tone to the channel, but somehow all the camera angles, audio, everything, feels so professional and it's nice to see a channel that makes it look so easy while also being so cool.

Ok so this is a bit off topic, but a good hack is taking 2 screws and then measuring the width of your tyres and drilling them into your bench according to your width. (Cockpit repair stand kinda like the clug)

*IMPORTANT* I have a Few Questions about my MTB and a Video idea for you, its been a Long time since you made a "Best MTB front and rear Derailleur" Yours also didn't really go over anything. I have a Cannondale Trail 8 And my MTB Derailleurs Are Both Horrible. I'm looking to Upgrade them even though the bikes only 5 weeks old, What are your Recommendations? I'm looking to spend about $50 per Derailleur, I don't Do super Hard core riding like you, However I still do Jumps, And Riding Fast in the woods over rock gardens and Roots. What is Your Recommendation? (My bike has 7 Speeds in the back and 3 in the front, {21 in total})

I don't know if any of you follow Traxxas but that is one expensive car. Btw jumping isn't that hard, I could nail it easy with that car, especially because it has amazing rotational mass

I used to drive these around before I got into mountain biking, and now I might fix mine up again (they're always breaking no matter what Seth says) and go for a rip.

Im not sure if it’s just me but you are slowly becoming less entertaining every video. I like the old Seth that made 10 bike gadget videos and stuff of that sort. This RC stuff is not you. I liked it when it felt like you were talking to me directly and not a group of people like you are. I hope you make some changes to your videos and become the Seth that you used to be.

Hi Seth!
I just got really into mountain biking and got my first bike. It’s a trek marlin 4. I don’t live in a place were there are many trails for good riding. The best trail is about 1.5 hours from my house. It’s my dream to live somewhere where there are trails everywhere. I’m looking at a polygon Siskin t7 on Pinkbike. I’m freaking out without having trails close to me. If I could drive I would be mountain biking anything I could. Do you have any tips for finding good trails or beginner cheap full suspension bikes?
