    Not bad, once it actually got going, it was pretty entertaining. Nothing like running an RC through fall leaves, a total blast.

    But, "most epic"?
    I'd say it was good... Plus, the term 'epic' is not only used incorrectly on YouTube, but is used WAY too much.

    watch outher slash videos and then you know why I wrote most epic. Because the most videos are made with a gopro which stands 15min on the same place and the slash drives from left to right. Those arent even edited!

    IMO the video is cool and the best part is doing donuts in the leaves, but saying epic is just exaggerating.

    I think it's an impressive video RcToTheFREAK. Oh, wait. Impressive is a synonym for epic! Thanks Merriam-Webster.

    Most epic Slash 2wd video ever! What do you think?

    Did he not specifically ask, "what do you think?" I wasn't rude, I liked it, said it was good, but anymore, calling a video "epic" is just click-bait. Knowing full well the definition of the word, you miss the point of it being subjective, ergo, I thought it was good, not impressive, not epic.

    Plus, an epic effort does not mean he'll produce an epic product.

    On the topic of slow-mo subject matter, there are few better than a fast RC in fall leaves.

    Again, good video, and look forward to your next one.

    Greatscott is a dear, valued member of our forum and he is entitled to his opinion.

    However, no one is allowed to 'dis' on chocolate unless they are allergic to it and they provide proof from a licensed medical professional. I have my limits afterall.

    Oh no, I would have stopped watching "meh" in the first 20 seconds. I thought the first 30 seconds kind of boring, but just on production value alone It seemed that it would be a good video, and it was.

    Wait, who's dissin' chocolate? I epically pity the fool!

    Did I say it wasn't a good video? No. If I did I won't even type it on any forums. RcToTheFREAK did an excellent job on making the video and I'm looking forward to the next one.

    To OP I will agreed that Traxxas is "Epic".


    @everyone

    I'm epic, JerrysMaxx is epic, Mike Jenkins is epic, we're all epic, it what makes us good people in the world special in our own way.

    Either way, just as one of the previous videos was certainly not the "funniest" - as it was billed - this video is IMO neither the "most epic" nor even "epic." It is a nicely filmed and edited production. It is much better than I could or even would care to do. However, the OP is setting the bar incredibly high with his video titles, and I view the superlatives in the descriptions stricter than some. I understand how many consider anything "good" to be "awesome" or "epic" but to me that's not proper use of language.
    Again, good job and keep them coming, but I'd back off a little on the titles. Let others say that they're the best. If they are, it won't be a secret for long.
