  Here are some videos of my Extreme Machine climbing an extremely high and uneven hill. Its a much harder climb than it looks and I did it with only the rear diff locked
 
 
This one is at the top of the hill which is the hardest part where the truck is nearly straight up. It is where most of the trucks get stuck or flip over.

Makin it look real easy, this is the only rc that has been able to climb it without any wheel spin. Not even my traxxas summit, full built brushless 2.2 scx10 or my buddies built brushless scx10 have made it this easy and I did it with only the rear diff locked. All the hobby trucks require a ton of wheel speed to make it. I also have almost no suspension flex and a really high center of gravity.

Next im gonna make a video of it head to head against the summit and scx10 showing it out climbing the almighty hobby cars

More R/C cars than your local hobby shop

Old school is the only way to go

The speed control started acting up and ended up goin in reverse only. Soo i ended up converting it to a hobby car. Now im running:

Traxxas waterproof vxl speed control
Traxxas radio
Traxxas water proof 2075 hi torque servo
11.1v venom battery.

I gained about 2mph which is alot since it only went 4mph to begin with. Its geared soooo low i can drag my traxxas summit around with it like its nothing. This was the easiest hobby conversion yet and works well.
