That’s right, watch myself Josh and Jake Barritt make fools of ourselves on live national TV tomorrow. Some of you know that I am in production of our new video Dezert People – Second Lap. Recently we built a full size RC Car from a Toyota Camry and took it to Nevada and destroyed it. Watch the video here http://www.techtv.com/screensavers/shownotes/story/0,24330,3421737,00.html we won’t be driving the car around for the show, just showing how everything works. But they will be showing footage from the car we jumped.

Watch it tomorrow on TechTV, DirecTV channel 354, 4pm & 7pm Pacific time, DirecTV might show it at eastern times I think, 7pm & 10pm. And it looks like they show it again at 12pm eastern time on Monday.

Great footage. Please replace all divets in the course (ha ha). Just watched a t.v. show the other night, forgot the show, but they did a similar thing with a car. It was on TLC or Discovery. They made it remote controlled and then strapped some rockets on the roof to try to prove some prior test someone claimed on how fast the car went. Pretty impressive. Can't wait for DP2.
Curtis, you coming out to VORRA this next weekend. Season opener Sunday March 30th at Prairie City.

Car = $170
controls = $320 (could of found something cheaper but my friend got them)
switch to activate cylinder for the brakes = $40
The rest we had.

The car that will be on the show tomorrow cost $250 and my friend at Hagin's Automotive sponsored it. We used all the same controls from the last car.

They aslo did it on Junk Yard wars but they just drove the cars inside some circle crashing into each other. Nothing high speed. We had to take it to the next level... :) We have more plans ;)

You should build another and enter it in the Pre-runner's jump contest. That would take all the human fear out of getting on the brakes at the last second. That is the funniest thing I have every seen, especially the last big jump.

That is a way to R&D suspension systems. We could have shootouts. Someone claims they have a badass kit but it looks unsafe, bolt it up and put it to work and try and break it.. You will get some bitchin footage..

Curtis you guys should take a stock ranger and see how fast a built truck can go and how fast you can get the stock truck to go through the same section.

This is all Full Pull~

This is all Full Pull to the extreme....He should have been strapped in at shotgun...with his bottle of Black Velvet ducktaped to his hand stapped in with a 5-point....This has the makings of an All-Arizona People versus All-Nevada People weekend event all over it....out on the desert border.

The North vs South....in the dez!

Nice job boyz!
