Well TC finally got a chance to go test out the new buggy Game Changer. It
worked awesome and is going to be interesting to see where he takes it from
here. Not many people beat on a new buggy the first day out like TC does.
The Engine still needs a little fine tuning but thats not a big deal and
will be addressed shortly.

RC Short Course Truck B-Main - Norcal Hobbies Mar. 14 2010
URC is as active as ever at http://UltimateRC.com/forums/ !
If you have RC-related questions or want to share your own experiences,
sign up for the free & friendly URC Forums & join *thousands* of other
RCers interacting every single day!
Responses to Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do you have a video of/about _______?
A: Check by visiting my main channel page; hit the channel-specific search
box and enter a relevant keyword (fewer the better)
Q: Why haven't you made new videos in a long time?
A: My local RC track facility was forced to move a long ways away.
Meanwhile, nearly every open space in my heavily populated area (San
Francisco, California region) is *explicitly* off-limits to RCs and
regularly patrolled by rangers and/or police and I've been booted once too
many times. I've got no good place to legally drive & film within a
reasonable distance :(
Q: Will you ever return to the RC hobby?
A: I sure hope so! Plan is to try to buy a house with enough land to build
my own little private track / testing facility, if the real estate market
Q: Why did you disable comments on your existing videos on this channel?
A: You know, *most* RC hobbyists are cool folks. YouTube though, harbors
an extraordinarily large population of the most vitriolic, extremist,
hyper-fanboys who make it their life's purpose for weeks at a time to
develop and then spread the most ridiculous fabricated stories to try to
tear down a guy who happened upon a little success & popularity as a result
of working hard & sharing something he loves to do. I'm not into that.
Normal human beings who want to chat up a storm about RCs can do so on the
forums where there's a sense of community as well as accountability.
Q: Is URC (which stands for UltimateRC.com) dead?
A: Silliest question of all time, hands down. Visit
http://UltimateRC.com/forums & hit "View New Posts" for your answer!
Q: With RC testing on the backburner, are you doing anything instead?
A: I've merely shifted from one type of toy to another! Check out
http://www.JANGBRiCKS.com . With the same level of dedication I previously
applied to RC, I've built YouTube's most-viewed narrative review channel
for LEGO & other brick-based building systems. LEGO is the world's single
most popular toy for ages 2 to 100 and has a remarkably positive &
supportive global fanbase. Like with RC, what outsiders think of as "just
kids toys" is actually a vast & diverse world of often very complex builds
& challenges. Unlike with RC, though, all of the parts are compatible,
pieces from the 1970s are still fully usable today, and there are no rain
cancellations or surprise track closures or park rangers to contend with :D
Kyosho Ultima SC Short Course Truck (Official Video)
Kyosho's Ultima SC is designed to be the most fun, high-performance
short-course truck on the market. It features the DNA of the
competition-bred RT5 plus a host of new features that make it ideally
suited to the SC class, whether you're a beginner or expert driver.
The Ultima SC comes completely factory assembled, which means all you have
to do is supply a battery pack, charger and some AA-size alkaline batteries
for the radio and you're ready to go. the body comes pre-painted with the
decals applied, and it's already trimmed, so it's ready to mount right out
of the box. The body mount locations are identical to that of the Slash,
which means the bodies are interchangeable and any aftermarket bodies
designed for the Slash will also fit the Ultima SC.
The Ultima SC shares many of the exact same chassis and suspension
components as the RT5 - the chassis is simply stretched 40mm to accomodate
the wheelbase requirements of the SC class. That means the SC benefits from
the same high-tech composites that Kyosho has develop in their 27+ years of
electric off-road racing, and more than 30 years in other categories. Note
that all of the hinge pins are captured - the safest and strongest choice
when attaching suspension components. Captured pins will rarely come loose,
and there are no small and unwieldy retainers that can pop loose and become
lost at the worst possible moment.
Composite shocks feature double O-ring seals, a volume compensating
diaphragm, and threaded spring pre-load adjusters for quick and independent
adjustment of spring pre-load (ride height) at all four corners. These are
the same features as the competition shocks used on most vehicles, which
means you'll have nearly every advantage of the same shocks used by the
12mm hex hubs, which Kyosho has been using since the 80's, have been
adopted as the standard in the SC class, and the Ultima SC is fitted with
them front and rear. A floating front axle means there's no bearings
installed in the wheels. Instead, the bearings are installed in the
steering knuckles. This helps to protect the bearings better than those
that are mounted in the wheel, and it also allows the use of the 12mm hubs
front and rear. That means owners of the Ultima SC can not only rotate the
tires front to rear, it means that all wheels developed for other trucks
also using a 12mm hex will fit the Ultima SC.
Heavy-duty bumpers front and rear protect the Ultima SC from the hardest
impacts. Specially designed to absorb big impacts, the bumpers and braces
are specially engineered to flex and rebound from a hard crash, preserving
the chassis and suspension components, as well as the bumpers themselves.
Side guards also protect the SC from hard side collisions, and support the
body side panels to keep the body looking good for as long as possible.
A Kyosho Perfex KA15L Electronic Speed Control (ESC) is factory installed,
along with all the other electronics. The ESC is a dual-profile until that
is compatible with both Ni-MH and LiPo batteries. A LiPo profile activates
a low-voltage cutoff curcuit to protect your LiPo pack from becoming
damaged from excessive discharge. The ESC also features fully proportional
braking, and reverse. The reverse function can be disabled for racing where
reverse is not allowed.
A G20 motor is included with the Ultima SC. It's an economical yet powerful
motor that is able to capable of a very aggressive pace. This high-quality
motor features special compound electrical brushes for long life, and the
commutator section is cooled by an internal fan.
The transmission features the same effiecient three-gear designed for the
competition RT5 and RB5 buggies. An adjustable double-disc slipper stands
between the motor and transmission. The one area that's unique to the
Ultima SC is the gear-type differential. In keeping with the defacto class
standards, the SC includes a gear diff, but it's no ordinarl gear diff. It
features four internal spider gears and two outdrive gears for a total of
6. this is the same type of differential design used in the big 1/8 nitro
buggies for decades. The diff installed in the SC is exceptionally smooth,
and can be tuned with some optional silicone diff fluid.
AZ Undertakers At KOH 2013 - Miller On Backdoor

went on. Here's a video of Ryan Miller from the Arizona Undertakers 4x4
Club hitting both the regular line and the right side on the Backdoor
