Default Water Skipping a Traxxas Rustler VXL with Ski Kit RcFanatics Style RcFanatics.net

Another good video made by friend Andy. I was laughing watching it. I was wondering how he were going to get it back in the middle of the water.

+ YouTube Video

The key to water skipping is having lots of speed going into it. They need to get going a lot faster before entering the water!

thats pretty neat. never thought of anything like that before. i have seen real trucks skipp across water. 4x4's with paddle tires all the way around them. big motors with lots of horse power and nitrus. they are freaking moving when they hit the water.

I think the best part of the video is that he's worried about the rustler getting ran over by the 4 wheeler( nevermind the fact that it is completely submerged under water) Still a cool vid though +1 for trying something new!

That pretty awesome. Field looks pretty bumpy to get the needed speed. Still a cool vid though.
