A note to our viewers: if you have never owned a serious R/C vehicle, then watching this video may be damaging to your wallet. Traxxas cars are some of the most renowned and robust remote control vehicles on the market, and to give us all a taste of what these things can do, the guys from Dude Perfect obliged our curiosity with an epic video back in December.
Filmed at the Traxxas headquarters in McKinney, Texas, the seven-minute video showcases multiple models performing some awesome stunts and tricks. Starting off is a four-wheel-drive Slash navigating a treacherous indoor obstacle course, going over everything from a shuffle board to a punching bag before making a tricky jump into a garbage can.
From there, it only gets more insane and incredible. A Slash goes all-out across a small pond, a Rally VXL does some Gymkhana-like stuff around an F-150, an E-Revo gets strapped with a dart to go balloon-popping, you get the idea. Basically, these guys are just here to have a great time and have fun, and that is what Traxxas can deliver.
Things get even better when one of the Dude Perfect guys gets inside the #47 short-course truck to go romping around a small track. Banks, jumps, and more are conquered easily as the 600-horsepower vehicle makes its way around.
The end to all of this awesomeness is a world record attempt jump with an R/C car. Using a Traxxas-provided ramp labeled “Launch Zone” and a full-scale transport 18-wheeler, the guys lay it all on the line. Full-throttle, the car goes up and over the semi truck, landing on a dirt ramp on the other side (on all four wheels, no less). Once the dust has settled, it’s revealed that the car went a full 197 feet. Not too shabby, if you ask us.
