What could go wrong? Riding mountain bikes with an RC car

Publicerades den 16 okt 2020
Yes, I know nobody asked for these RC videos. I think I got it all out of my system for the time being. Today, we attempt to jump a mountain bike and RC car over a tabletop at the same time. It turns out that this isn't nearly as easy as sending the car or bike alone, as they actually travel at different speeds to clear the same jump. After some technical problems and a steep learning curve, we finally figure out that a bigger battery makes it much easier to time.
Here's the car Traxxas sent us
If you're interested in the Maxx, just go to your local hobby shop and they will probably have it. You'll also need a charger, battery, and probably some tools. This thing is an absolute beast! It might need a little polishing after landing upside down about 300 times.

  • video idea: get Curtis to start/try mountain biking and go to a bike park or something

  • Why did seth change his channel name ? cause i miss Seths Bike Hacks

  • Hey Seth. Did you get hurt? Is that why you have the one knee bike?

  • “Today we’re gonna be doing something different but kinda the same” - Seth 2020

  • I love these rc car vids keep doing them please 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Why does it take you so long to post videos

  • "Today we are going to be doing something a little different but kinda the same" absolutely class love it 😁👌👍

  • shout out to Traxxas... I bought my E-Revo VXL used and it's a beast! Good times.

    • Why is this no longer called Seth's bike hacks??!!!

  • Guys if u see pls like to get this to top but Seth broke his ankle he put it on his insta

  • Awesome video.

  • Hey Seth! I love your videos they’re really cool to watch. I got a suggestion, you should test bike parts, accessories etc from the shop WISH. I see advertising on bike tyres, bike wash etc, and I think it’s be so interesting to see you review some items of your choice!

  • Hi seth! I need to make a importnant decision! I just started mtb and there is this full sus bike for 562$(dechatlon rockrider 530s) and Trek marlin 5 2021. My budget is 590$ Which one do i take!?

    • I would recommend getting a hard tail for that budget you will get better parts

  • I love the intro tho!!!!!!!

  • Make a video of you practicing wheelies

  • Healing vibes seth

  • You need an fpv drone racer to chase you... I know a guy

  • Can make more rc car videos

  • Seth why you not posting


  • Hi Seth I’m a small new MTB SEnewssr my channel name is Bike off-road I’m a big fan and it would be great if you could give me a shoutout

  • I think another SEnewssr Ryan Willard has sprained his arm here cuz he hit a jump and he sprained his arm

  • Why is this no longer called Seth's bike hacks??!!!

  • Can you make a video of you riding every trail on berm peak?

  • all he had to do was keep his finger steady on the throttle

  • This shows how crazy it was when ken block jumped a ramp with a snowboarder.

  • Is air force 1's good for mountain biking???

  • Who’s here after Seth announced that he broke his ankle? Get better soon Seth!🙂

  • Seth, u should make a pump track

  • Can you make a part recommendation video?

    • The car was nose heavy and the extra battery evened it out.

  • Get out and Vote Vote Vote!!!! TRUMP 2020!!! 🇺🇸 ❤️.. Do It!!!! Berm Peak and everything else is on the line!!!

  • yeah the same storm that hit you hit me aswell we mad a cool bike trails from it like you like 5 months ago i think

  • stock setup isn't going to work good. needs heavier oil and springs in it. front end is bottoming way too easy... that's why it's bouncing out of control. surprised the "professional" rc driver doesn't know that.

  • Who’s here after he snapped hi leg🦴

  • I just did a small jump and I've wreckedy derailer and I landed on my neck but I'm waiting to get it fixed because I love riding my new bike I got it 2 weeks ago but it's been through a journey

  • Heal fast and well. Stay safe, and good luck.

  • Hey seth you should try put helium in your bike tires!

  • The guy driving the RC is exceptionally bad at jumping it! It's really not that hard as you guys making it look🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Sorry about your leg :(

  • Since you broke your foot maybe there will be more hacks and product reveiews? They are the best

  • So it looks like this may not be the last rc vid

  • i really hope seths bike hacks doesnt turn into a company

  • I race rc nitro 1/8 buggy

  • The car was nose heavy and the extra battery evened it out.

  • Man, I don't ride mtb, I do bmx, but I swear every time I click one of your videos I end up watching 10, theres such a casual and cool tone to the channel, but somehow all the camera angles, audio, everything, feels so professional and it's nice to see a channel that makes it look so easy while also being so cool.

  • Ok so this is a bit off topic, but a good hack is taking 2 screws and then measuring the width of your tyres and drilling them into your bench according to your width. (Cockpit repair stand kinda like the clug)

  • If you ever owned a traxxas car you know that they can take a 50 ft jump and and keep going like it’s nothing

  • SEnewss unsubscribed me from you. Luckily I remember you

  • Now traxxas needs to make a Seths bike hacks rc car, and give one to Seth to test on berm peak!

  • Guy is actually a terrible RC driver.

  • Sweet ad! Lol

  • Hi u inspired my cousin and I to make our own SEnewss channel. Could you give us us shout out the Video is called the start of Trail Riders

  • Bro not to be rude but this guys rc car orientation is so bad he should stand at the side of the ramp so that he can land that car😂

  • can Amy be in the nextvideo

  • they should of got the e revo 2.0

  • can you please do a video on suspension posts?

  • I’ve made a review on my mtb could people check it out and give me some advice on if I’ve done anything wrong and what I could improve on?

  • *IMPORTANT* I have a Few Questions about my MTB and a Video idea for you, its been a Long time since you made a "Best MTB front and rear Derailleur" Yours also didn't really go over anything. I have a Cannondale Trail 8 And my MTB Derailleurs Are Both Horrible. I'm looking to Upgrade them even though the bikes only 5 weeks old, What are your Recommendations? I'm looking to spend about $50 per Derailleur, I don't Do super Hard core riding like you, However I still do Jumps, And Riding Fast in the woods over rock gardens and Roots. What is Your Recommendation? (My bike has 7 Speeds in the back and 3 in the front, {21 in total})

    • You should buy an X-Maxx its the bigger brother of that one I myself have had a Slash 4x4 for like give or take 5 years still works traxxas is the #1 in RC

  • getting sponsered by traxxas. that's epic!!

    • TRAXXAS only helps out people with free stuff if they're already filthy rich ,NEVERMIND THE POOR PEOPLE WITH NOTHING AYE TRAXXAS?

  • Please use the Traxxas Stampede

  • He advertised it like traxxas would have

  • jealous of yall guys my leg just got amputated and i have to wait 4 months for a fake leg. Cant wait to get back on a bike, sad thing is it will never be the same anymore

  • how do i fix a chain that hits my frame on jumps. I have a nishiki pueblo with everything stock I have already done the b screw thing on my Shimano Tourney TX35 rear derailleur and it hasnt worked

  • Why all the EC crap. Let’s get to the bike crap. 🙏🏽😜

  • Hey Seth loved the video since it is now winter you should ski berm peak it would be interesting ⛷

  • I got the traxxes erevo

  • Does anyone know what the 2008 Novara Aspen is? Because that's the bike I ride.

  • Hi Seth, I have a carerra valour mountain bike and I want to make it into a proper mountain bike like what you do with bikes, could u be able to do a video on budget things for mountain bikes as I am just a 14 year old boy

  • Liking the videos but when can we see you getting building again?

  • Seth should build a big wooden statues of drama at berm peaks trail head like the one on dirt merchant in whister

  • You needed a better RC driver.

  • Seth you and kevin talbot Like if you guys agree

  • TRAXXAS only helps out people with free stuff if they're already filthy rich ,NEVERMIND THE POOR PEOPLE WITH NOTHING AYE TRAXXAS?

  • You should buy an X-Maxx its the bigger brother of that one I myself have had a Slash 4x4 for like give or take 5 years still works traxxas is the #1 in RC

    • my two favorite hobbies: RC and MTB. love it

  • Go to Australia i think it will be a fun little challange i live in Australia the tracks are fun as i love ur vids have fun

    • @misolou fout proberbly a duel suspension

    • Hey what is a good beginer mountain bike

  • I want to see back the trek 4700 if u have it

  • Hi Seth me and my friend would love to have you to shoutout are very small youtube chanel about MTB it's called We are outside

  • Stop with rc cars and upload bike videos in your garden

  • this was pointless

  • Sub to jack hellyer please

  • Everyone’s talking about “what could go wrong” but what about the stuff that went right, like that was insane! Anyway thanks Seth.

  • Looks like car has auto break on neutral. This is bad for jumping.

  • what happened to the derailleur?

  • I don't know if any of you follow Traxxas but that is one expensive car. Btw jumping isn't that hard, I could nail it easy with that car, especially because it has amazing rotational mass \

    • Very gréât vidéo. Nice challenge with rc car VS bike

  • 3:42 did he just call it a toy? I'm triggered. I used to drive these around before I got into mountain biking, and now I might fix mine up again (they're always breaking no matter what Seth says) and go for a rip.

    • you'd be suprised. Ive owned a ton of Rcs and this one is in a league of its own tank wise .

  • Im not sure if it’s just me but you are slowly becoming less entertaining every video. I like the old Seth that made 10 bike gadget videos and stuff of that sort. This RC stuff is not you. I liked it when it felt like you were talking to me directly and not a group of people like you are. I hope you make some changes to your videos and become the Seth that you used to be.

  • Here is Some thing crazy I have the big brother of the big brother of that rc car

  • Awesome just awesome

  • Hey what is a good beginer mountain bike

  • my two favorite hobbies: RC and MTB. love it

  • F that. Revo is where is at.

  • Hey seth, In my opinion I would love to see a mini creek system throughout bermpeak, idk if you have ever brought that idea up

  • No way😮😮😮😍

  • Highly recommend Traxxas vehicles

  • Oh so sweet the Maxx is an awesome truck I have the Xmaxx you should check that out ps love berm peak truck can't believe traxxas sorted you that that's total bad ass nice one traxxas 👍👍👍

  • I really miss the old name of the channel but the new one is more like what the channels about atm so it makes sense I guess

  • Hi Seth! I just got really into mountain biking and got my first bike. It’s a trek marlin 4. I don’t live in a place were there are many trails for good riding. The best trail is about 1.5 hours from my house. It’s my dream to live somewhere where there are trails everywhere. I’m looking at a polygon Siskin t7 on Pinkbike. I’m freaking out without having trails close to me. If I could drive I would be mountain biking anything I could. Do you have any tips for finding good trails or beginner cheap full suspension bikes? Thanks!

  • I’m looking for a good but cheap endero bike any ideas???

  • Very gréât vidéo. Nice challenge with rc car VS bike

  • It national youths inspiration day thanks for inspiring me seth

  • Damn just came back to this channel and he changed so much I miss the old Seth
