Talking Just when you think you've seen it all - RC Tractor Pulling

I stumbled across this doing some research for Santa.

I've had planes, boats, cars and helo's, this never crossed my mind.

They had a turbine R/C tractor.

They need a little mini-pulverizer to smooth out that track.

I had a smile on my face the entire video. I am a huge RC nut (mostly boats of course) and that tractor pulling is very cool. This is the first I have seen it.

Some of those rigs pulled that sled like nothing. I liked the turbine one, that one needed more sled.

Very cool. If I ever got word of that going on in my area I would have to get into it. LOL

I had a sled for my R/C truck when I was 10 y/o and that was 20 years ago. The weight bucket even moved forward as you pulled it, you guys need to get out more. (or I need to get the heal out of Ocala!)

Can't help but watch.

By looking at the shoes and fancy shin high socks, there are a few boys there with RC's worth more than their trailers.....

Yeah RC toys can get expensive. Last year I got out of gas powered boats and into brushless electric.

These electric are so much faster, they just don't have the run time. But it's so nice not to hear that weed whacker whine all day.

I have a huge RC Fountain with twin massive electric motors and surface drives. Its been clocked at 60+ MPH. The boat is 55" long and has a ready to run weight of over 30 pounds.

I'm embarrassed to say how much I have into it at this point. Its north of $4K.
