Land Rover used to run an intense annual cross-country driving challenge to show off the capabilities of their 4x4s. We’re talking long slogs epic landscape panoramas and lots of digging in the mud. A real event hasn’t been hosted in years, but some creative fans found a practical way to bring it back.
Man, Jeep Wranglers sure are expensive, apparently even when they’re 1/8th scale. The detail on this two-foot replica is incredible, but is any toy worth what you could spend on a real car from Craigslist?
There’s something so endearing and entertaining about three little R/C cars on the loose in Ensenada. These guys just look like best friends having the greatest day ever!
There’s nothing wrong with grown men liking R/C cars! At least I hope not, because I could watch these things all day. Check out this adorable little truck springing over a jump, landing in a lake, and just keep on driving!
Qualcomm wants to bring wireless charging to Formula E electric race cars, and probably your plug-in Prius some day too. To test the tech they’re using a tiny RC version and, naturally, racing it against the real thing. So that’s how you make recharging a battery look exciting.
It’s finally happened: the most talented artist making bespoke R/C trucks has finally done his take on the best one ever: the International Scout. Watching this 100 percent scratch-built masterpiece come together is a privilege, seeing it hit the trail is just awesome.
If you applied the focus and care a bonsai master tends his tiny trees with, except you were making a small-scale off-road track, you'd end up with this. And holy crap does it look like fun, just watch that little car rip!
"Aurthur" the dog hates this remote control truck. Or maybe he loves it. Either way, he wants to eat it real bad but the truck isn't about to sit around and be devoured. Cuteness and hilarity ensue.
A melodious soundtrack really changes the vibe on an off-road video. Watching this feels like being hauled off to heaven on the boom of this eight-wheeled wrecker. And such detail... if it weren't for the "giant grass" you might mistake it for the real thing!
Somebody did a great job replicating Top Gear's indestructible Toyota Hilux, and sent it into the mud with fanfare worthy of the vehicle's legendary status.
Trucks bouncing around on hydraulics look so much more endearing in 1:10 scale. Smaller size also gives builders extra leeway to "be creative." Spin baby spin!
Turns out RC scale 2WD rally trucks are even more insane and unstable than their real-life counterparts. The power-to-weight ratio is so bonkers on this Traxxas truck that it can wheelie so hard it flips itself right over. Hang on tight!
Some little rascals got a Traxxas Stampede RC truck to backflip over a life-sized Nissan Xterra and a dude standing on top of it with a lacrosse stick. Extra points for RC-mounted GoPro footage!
Giant many-axle'd ballistic-transportation trucks can be some of the meanest looking war machines out there, but this twelve wheel RC just looks like a lot of fun to play with.
Today's RC Adventure has some great mud slopping, realistic paint jobs, great settings in snow and sand, and a MAN KAT rescuing a Hummer H2. Not sure what to make of the soft-jazz sound track though.
Remote-piloted war machines have been with us for years, but new "TerraMax" technology from Oshkosh brings the video game experience to war on a whole-new level with third-person vehicle driving and a console-style controller.
There's some great river rock crawling in this video. But then, oh no! Trouble strikes at 5:50 when the scale Chevy Blazer hits the ditch! Will this tiny tow truck be able to recover it!?
Cue the meditation music and let's watch an RC Subaru Brat lay down some surprisingly intense donuts in the dirt!
The off-roading exhibition put on by this Tamiya RC Porsche Cayenne isn't quite mind-blowing, but the rockin' retro video game soundtrack sure is.
