RC Car vs Watermelon

Slo-mo video of a Traxxas RC car hitting a watermelon at 60 mph. Silly but fun to watch!

That’s hilarious...I used to race RC, had a little AWD gas powered buggy.  Almost too fast to handle. 

I follow a YouTube channel called How Ridiculous which is 3 guys from Perth Australia who drop stuff off a 45m tower.  It’s usually pretty good.  This isn’t one of their best, but explore the channel for some fun destruction.

This video works better with a six pack Scott ... clearly I am referring to refreshments and not fitness levels!!  :D

I am a sucker for these type of video, as I could watch them ALL DAY!!!

Isn't amazing that they can drop a Thor's Hammer from tower & hit a giant nail, yet most people can't drive one into a wall without mashing their thumb.

Now, to tie this all together - My local hardware store here in Lancaster sells RC stuff, and they manufacture Atlas Balls (and other body builder stuff) in the basement of the store. The room where they make them had slot tracks in it back in the 60's. I raced there as a teenager.

I raced slot cars with a partial sponsorship in LA in the '70's. Switched to R/C and still race those once in a while. Helps keep the hand/eye coordination sharp. May have to retire though, those little screws are getting hard to see.

Whenever I had a crash that would take off a corner, I used to think “there goes 100 dollar”  >:(

I thought worse than that when I used to roll one of the real ones.  :confused:
