- r/c rock crawlers.
even though i have only owned a manta ray as a teen,i must admit to having a hankering after an axial jeep (like in this video). [video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y92uQu4g8Yc[/video]
watching videos of them climbing trails looks like great fun 😀
even though i have no need of an r/c buggy am still wanting to save for one 😳
anyone else do rock crawling?Posted 4 years agohousehusbandSubscriber
I don’t really get RC rock crawling.
I did/do – to some extent. I’ve got one, an old Venom Creeper. I also bought an Axial XR10, built it up and played with it a wee but and then realised I needed to spend a not unreasonable amount to get it to do anything that the Venom couldn’t do – so sold it.
I spent probably a four-figure sum on RC cars and kit over a two-year period several years ago but found that I enjoyed building and tinkering more than actually doing anything with the cars themselves.Posted 4 years agoandylMember

I can understand that. At least the rock crawlers can be put on a shelf and look good.
Race RC cars are never pretty after a few races.Posted 4 years agoracefaceec90Member
i am odd 😉
i just like the thought of seeing just how steep/complex terrain i could get up/down e.t.c
i do like all other forms of r/c also but this just appeals to me tbh.also i can think of some good spots close to home i could use it.
the jeeps also look cool (and isn’t that what it’s all about 😉Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
Meh ,rc rock crawling sucks. Americans rock crawling sucks
Look up rockrods videos. Looks slightly more appealing in a – destroy all your kit on an hourly basis kind o way
Im more a winch challenge kinda guy though, more calculated imo rather than do or die like the american versions.Posted 4 years agoDave VanderspekMember
I have a smaller 1/18 scale losi mini rock crawler, I have to say it’s great fun. I like the challenge of finding a route up/over all sorts of things (being a motorcycle trials rider it comes naturally!) My vehicle being smaller means there are lots more challenges in the house/garden/workshop than the 1/10 scale vehicles.Posted 4 years ago
Plus I can drive it outside in the rain on the rockery whilst sitting inside at the window with a brew.
