This video of Maximum Destruction from and Orlando event in 2012 was recently brought to my attention, and I have to say it was pretty impressive! The amount of saves this guy did, and the style which he did them in were right out of a RC bash session! I attend a few monster truck events a year, and I haven’t seen anything this good in person.
Apologizing for the shaky cam, but stick with it.. it’s worth the watch. I jumped to 1:25 in, that’s where it gets exciting. Check it out below.
Anyone else have any amazing full scale vids to share?
We always love pointing out seeing RC vehicles on television. It’s like free advertising for the hobby! This latest sighting was in the new Capital One BuyPower card. It allows you to earn points towards getting a full size Chevy, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac.
The commercial follows a few different people, but one of them is a guy who starts off in a Hobby shop, buys a rc plane, and then later it shows him flying. The interesting part I thought was that not only does he appear to take off flying towards himself, but then once the plane does get in the air, he aims it to fly directly over his head. LOL. Pretty sure nobody flying a plane would consider doing that, but hey it’s a commercial, and I’m sure the director told whoever is actually flying to keep it close to the guy so it stays in the shot.
For you scaling and serious off-road fans, Pro-Line has put out a video showcasing their new Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XL 2.2″ tires. Watch as our friend Gerardo Gonzalez talks you through the features of their new tires, plus for the bashing action at the end.
The new XLs fit a wide variety of 2.2″ wheels and have the extra size needed to get over the gnarliest of terrain. Get full details by hitting up This Link over on Pro-Line’s website.
The crew over at Vaterra have put up a video showcasing their new ’86 Chevy K-5 Blazer.

Click the video below to check it out, and if you get one on Pre-Order before this Thursday you’ll even get free 2 day shipping from Horizon Hobby.
In the latest LV Home Insurance Commercial from our friends across the pond, a young boy has set up quite the RC drift track in hit house. Around furniture, the family dog, and even up onto the dinning room table. (I still can’t get away with that!)
We love any time a company uses an RC vehicle in their commercials as it just helps spread the word about our wonderful hobby.

Hard to tell what vehicle is under that body, but if we had to guess, we’d probably go with a HPI Racing Sprint 2. Thanks to fan Justin for sending in the tip.
We always love to see RC on TV, and nobody delivers more often then our friends at Mythbusters!
On a recent episode called ‘Fire in the Hole‘, they were testing the myth if a grenade could be shot out of the air and diffused if it was coming right at you. Good info for sure, but they needed to come up with a way to retrieve the grenades in case they were not sure if it was diffused or not. Or if it went rolling away. Nobody wants to just go hunt down and pick one of those things up.
They created this retrieval robot thingy, added some arms, and a baby head to go hunt down and pick them up. It looks like they started with a HPI Savage, and check out those tires! Talk about serious traction getters. Where do I find a set of those?
