RC Car vs Dirtbike

Today I did something a little different. I headed to Perris MX track and we shot a video with me racing my car against dirt bikes on the motocross track. We had Renaud Margry originally from France, riding over here now, and THE Mike Craig, Supercross race winner back in the 90s I believe, and father of Christian Craig. They thought they got my silly RC Car covered but they were ready to do battle regardless.

Well, to be honest, they did have me covered, but I still think I got more corner speed! I hope we got some good shots, and it will be a fun edit. We were almost done, and were filming a nice berm section on the track, and the roost of the bike kept flipping my car over, so I went first into the corner. It worked great the first time. 2nd time I hit a soft spot, lost speed, and got steamrolled by a 450 dirtbike. It blew the body off and tore it up, smashed my pipe, and bent my chassis and front shock! Damn it! But we still filmed another section after that too. JQRacing – Built to survive being run over.

Thanks to Jimmy from Freethepeeps for setting it all up, it was a lot of fun! Below you can watch Craig Jr battle Webb, in one of the best races I have seen. And that move at 3:25…..If I’m having a bad day, I can just watch those 3 seconds, and I’ll be all ok again. And below that, you can see that it hasn’t been all smooth sailing for him. MX is a tough sport.
