Default RC Crawlin Pics/Vids

Was back in Ann Arbor on Saturday to visit my parents and decided to hit up this spot. Actually dragged my Mom with me to shoot video, so please excuse the commentary . Had a blast and definitely planning on hitting it up every time I'm back in town.

Near the top of the hill


2/3 of the way down, looking back up the hill



Off to the side of the previous pic


Last 1/3 of the run

Looks cool! I think I saw your post on RCC also. The RC crawlers pretty much squashed the 1:1 stuff for me, seems like all I spend my money on any more is rc stuff.
Heres a few pics of my Axial, Beetlejuice V4 XR10 comp rig, I also have a 5 ton rock course in my garage.







Heres my scale Cherokee

I love to wheel. But R/C is great for doing stuff I wouldn't do (can't afford lol) in a 1:1 rig.
