Exclamation Overlands on the RCX Overland track!

Had the pleasure to play with my overland and a couple others on the RCParties (www.rc-parties.com) overland track this past weekend! He also brought out his on-road track (the "bridge" track from the RCX show - minus the bridge) and it was a great day of mini-z bashing for all!

Here's some videos of mine, and Akura's overlands on the track

http://www.blindbatts.com/temp/blind-track.wmv

*note* the batteries in my Mini-Maxx were dead by the time those vids were taken, but when I went to a fresh set I also took my monster kit off, but I didn't have a diff-lock plate with me, so I was getting stuck in some of the ruts. But the truck was quite a bit quicker with fresh batteries, if you've seen my other video's you'd know the speed, too much for that little track, but still tons of fun!

Akura2's overland was all hooked up on that track, he borrowed some oversized knobby tires from me, and coupled with his diff-lock plate being in, his overland owned that track!

Both clips are less than 1meg I believe, so should be a reasonable download for all.

ok...enough is enough...

...you guys really need to quit posting Overland stuff on this site...

Here is why...every time you do, YOU FRIGGIN make me want one more!!! I already have 2 sedans and an F1 and I can not come up with a justification to get this past the wife!

VERY COOL VIDS!

That track is amazing...how heavy is it? Looks very realistic, wonder how they made it.

track is awesome. A little too small for the power of my OL. So much traction that my OL pops wheelies even just by tapping the throttle.

Fun though, and cool vids, Blind.

I just have to say this one: Monster tires, but lacking horsepower. LOL!!! I'm messin with you and Akura2 bro.

actually close enough, it was ~90`F at the time, late afternoon (around 4 or 5pm) and I had been up since 4:30am that morning, and had done a full day of racing at a track which is a 2 hour drive from my house, the mini-z playing was a stop off on my way home!

Don't think I could have passed a sobriety test...lol!

any AAA batteries work bro, lol.

I use some 700mAH AAA's and they work great, you can pick some up for fairly cheap at any local supermarket type store, I would offer to sell some AAA's but I dont carry them at the moment, haven't decided whether to get more or not just yet...
