Racing in January... gotta love it! And once again, FHF Racing does their thing and sets up an RC track in the MotoDome, which is typically used for motocross and the like. A fun facility! We showed up to do some filming and a little racing ourselves!

The 4th of July weekend was especially fun for us! We got to experiment a little with a Mini LST and a Lightning Stadium Pro that runs upside down (a bit). We got a wheelie bar to experiment with. We played with fireworks a little. And this is only the beginning!

Here is the rest of what happened over the long 4th of July holiday weekend. Since this is from the later part of the weekend, we pushed our vehicles a little harder, jumped a little higher, drove a little faster, and did a bit more damage!

Hey, it's our first bashing video in practically forever! Don't let the title fool you, it wasn't really that cold. In fact, it was pretty melty and very wet. But, Melty & Wet wouldn't have made a good video title.

The weather up here in Minnesota has been very weird. 50 degrees in February??? Well, we just HAD to take advantage of that! We got 11 trucks together and 1 plane and headed out to do some damage! And that's just what we did, as you'll see in the opening scene! If it could drive away, it was limping bad!

Finally! Schedules, weather, and the planets have aligned in perfect harmony and we were able to get some decent bashing in this winter! Hopefully this isn't the last time.

You'll see some new vehicles this time: An LST (which died early on), a Genesis (which was still being broken in), and a RC18T with one of those Mamba brushless motors. Lots of fun in the snow!

We decided to do something a little different and trek out into the woods and bash on the trails. It was great because we got to bash on terrain not normally available to us! Of course, when we were done with that it was back to the farm for some big jumps!

This is the video from the final race of the Season at FHF. This one has all the usual racing stuff, but this time it's bigger and badder! Maybe it was because this was the last race, but it seemed like everyone was going for top speeds and big air!

Congratulations yet again to our own Doesgo for taking home two more 1st place trophies for both this race and the series competition!

This is our 2nd racing video of this season. Again, we were up at Fisk Hobby Farm, and again the weather wasn't so great. Actually, it was decent for most of the day, but bookended with rain at the beginning and end, and the storm at the end was a doozy! I'm sure I'm not the only one with some rusty tools!

The racing action was great! And this time Mike Fisk put a "SlapMaFro" lip on the big jump! Big air all day long!

Hot on the heals of the last Farm Bash! Lots of Savage action in this one, as there were 3 of them this time, including a brand-new Savage 25 that was just broken in. We spent lots of time testing out the new jump!

In part 2, we've got a lot more Savage action, but there's also a few other vehicles, including a Menace, T-Maxx, GS Racing SUT, and more! There's also more barn jumping, wall climbing, coop jumps, and some big jumps with the Menace!

It's been a very long time since the last Farm Bash video, but I think that you'll agree that it was worth the wait! We got big jumps, big jumps, and just to shake things up a bit, a few more big jumps! We've got a new truck in the fleet - a GS Racing SUT, which looks like it will be a great racer! Also, you'll see our first attempt at wall climbing, which didn't work so well.

Believe it or not, this is Minnesota in January. Where's our freakin' snow??? Well, at least it was extremely cold. We managed to have some fun anyway.

We got some buggy action, some monster and stadium truck action, and a preview of a new Menace! There would be more Menace action, but that cold weather caused some problems, as you will see.

Here's more race footage from Fisk Hobby Farm - the last race of the season. There wasn't too many people there, but we managed to get some good racing footage in anyway. I even got to play around on the track a bit and do some more backflips! A fun time!

It turns out that the Savage is not indestructible!  In fact, it only took a few minutes to eff it up this time.  I'm not exactly sure why it effing happened, but I suspect I loosened things up when I landed upside down, then really effed it on the next jump when I over-rotated the effing backflip - again! SlapMaFro is also proud to make it's on-road debut with a short video of our twin Novas bashing around on the road.  The Nova bodies were made in homage to Bruce's Nova, which you can see on his 2QuickNovas page.

DoesGo and I hit an R/C track near where he lives. It's a huge, rip-roaring, massive, second-gear-hitting-speed off-road track! Yeah, we did a few laps, but that quickly degenerated to seeing how far we could fly off the big jump! Then I put a set of Jumbo Kongs on the Savage and attempted backflips until it broke. Awesome!

Ever wonder how bad of a jumper you are? I've taken a bunch of old footage of myself and Bruce (aka DoesGo) testing a recently built jump on the track we are working on - and kept score! As it turns out, we suck. No, we are REALLY bad! Complete hacks!

Check out the video and I personally promise it will make you laugh! I have a money back guarantee!

Recently DoesGo and I took a road trip out to Michigan. We didn't leave our Savages behind! In fact, we stopped in Indiana on the shores of Lake Michigan to do some bashing, as well as Dirt Burners in Michigan to run on their track! It was a great time until the A/C went out somewhere in Wisconsin, and of course it was 95 degrees outside...

It was a very hot weekend and we generally felt more like sipping cool drinks in the shade rather than sweating with hot nitro engines, but we did manage to get some bashing in! 

I was finally able to clear the coop with my Savage, thanks to the awesome power of the Picco .26!!!  We also had a little racing on the track, which is coming along nicely.

This video takes place at the BMX track in our area.  It was a very rough day.  My Savage wouldn't start because the pull starter broke on my second pull.  The NMT broke a shock (fixed on site) and stripped a spur gear.  The other Savage busted a shock and fuel tank after about 5 minutes of running, but he got some good jumps in though!  The RC10GT busted the battery box and destroyed a battery pack.  The Ofna buggy was nothing but trouble and doesn't even appear in the vid.  Still, we had a great time and the kids that were there were in awe!
