    Camera Car Part 3

    Here's the latest video clip.

    The next stage is to take the setup off-road. I may have to switch the camera over to my E-Maxx in order to keep up with the T-Maxx boys over the rough stuff though, we'll see.
    This one is a bit bigger than the previous clips. It's 4 mins long and weighs in at 14 mb.

    Hi Tom.
    the camera car is an Associated RC10. Quite an old one, but she does a good job !

    Good vid! Shame, shame! Your friend was hitting second gear on tank 4. That's not what the book says, in fact it says the opposite.
    It's the little things that matter the most.

    Yes, I was ragging on him pretty hard for letting it hit 2nd so many times. He'd done a pretty good job up til then and I think he was getting over excited

    Mind you, we all know how much that TRX mill wants to grab 2nd all the time.....

    Oh I did not realise that it was break-in rounds that were caught on tape.
    Anyway, if that was the case, it is truly a bad timing to give the Tmaxx a competitor . It is SO easy to press that trigger on the remote more than necessary when there's friends around.
    Not the time to impress anyone!

    That's true, but in reality, the poor old camera car is so slow in comparison to the Maxx that it had trouble keeping up on tank #2 LOL

    Its funny how picky everyone is about break in. Hehehe
    "O NO tank 4 2nd gear AAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!" Hehehe
    Maybe a earlier rebuild then normal months down the road.
    But we all will take a jump that we know can do $100+ worth of damage the second we hit the ground. Hehehe
    Just being funny

    Thats really cool to see that from that level, very nice video

    Well, it's up to you to do exactly what you want with the truck.
    Picky? The most of the posters means well and tries to give advice that is helpful and as correct as possible, no more and no less.
    Everyone have their own way of 'doing it', but to make things last longer & get the most fun for each $, you need to be...."picky" on somethings.
    The manual is picky too you think? I bet they made that just for fun.

    Arent we having a ball?

    What is your setup? This is a modification I desperately want to do. Can you give the details, like what camera, where you found it, what it costs, additional equipment needed, etc? I would really appreciate it!

    Hi BlueMonster .
    Have look at my camera page on my site. It's pretty much got everything on it.
    I use a generic 2.4Ghz Audio/Video Transmitter and plug the receiver into a video walkman at the bash site.
