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

Views 712K

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.

I actually did this with BMX bikes once. It worked surprisingly good but that’s probably because we didn’t go like 10 feet in the air

The reason why the rc kept bumping after the jump is the suspension was set to soft

I luvvvvv ur vids I just have a simple question/request can u make how to do ... or I will teach u how to do ... but all of those things will be bike tricks but every once in a while u can do other things like how replace ... on ur bike or how to put ... one ur bike. Anyways I’m a huge fan of ur work. Keep it up 👍🏼
Robert Wilson
Hey Seth, become a big fan after happening upon one of your vids. I want to mountain bike in the worst way but I have no experience. My question for you is, I’m turning 45 is it to late for me to start riding like you guys do?
bananas stuff
no way dude! just get a bike and go ride! be careful if you feel you should tho.
Benny Day ago
so i forgot you even existed for a while (sorry) and didnt realise you renamed your channel! hope your having fun! edit: bike parks could easily make small RC trails, but thats my opinion

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!

Because he isnt making Bike hacks anymore and the name Berm Peak leaves him more room to make videos that are loosely/arenr related to Bikes

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.

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)

*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})
