big boys with cool toys presents RCTV your radio control authority brought to you in part by x10 productions with your host nick rat on this week's episode of our CTV we're going to be looking at RC snowmobiles then we're heading to the Rogers Center to see the Monster Jam with real monster trucks and also we're going to be heading back to the hobby show to look at a very cool classic Chris Craft boat on the water here we go we're here with Jordan thanks for coming Jordan go for all thanks for bringing these sweet custom machines these guys were definitely getting lots of attention from some of the other modelers around here obviously because of their scale looks why don't you tell us about these bad boys this is something I started on last October after the finish of the Clark series that's a new article order scale the idea is to make it try to perform something like 1/8 scale car where it handles and jumps and stuff yes to get more top end and just a passion of mine I've always want to read a control snowmobile and yes you can't buy a decent one on the market okay you know you got to build your own so these are a custom job when you say build your own explain to me how much of this did you build like these are pretty scale looking machines how much of this is your creation pretty well 90% of it things like shocks I buy those the motors I buy that yes the clutch is off low C clutch off 1/8 scale car okay pretty well everything I build everything all the body parts that you see I carve that out of wood first really and then take it to a vacuum farmer and they vacuum form it out of a B ester or lack Sam cool so you've actually built these bodies as well yeah you you really need to hear that you built these yourself yeah a few people asked that they think it's just something that you buy and yeah no of course they want to buy them but it takes a lot hours anything I handmade takes a lot of hours and dedication to of corner down and figure out how to do it again you know I use a basic hand tools like packs on file and you know I have a drill press and belt sander things like that a lot of trial and error I'm sure yeah yeah well in there the shocks are off 1/8 scale car you know it has like full suspension the tracks all handmade you screws for traction so they're setting tracks yeah studded track very cool bodies just held on with Velcro here vacuum down abs plastic meat we use the same motors that we use in the the 8 scale cars you can there's a cylinder head there okay yeah everything else like all the chassis it's mainly aluminum yes with a bit of thin-wall steel tubing for suspension parts yeah you probably get asked this a lot how many man-hours do you think you have it Oh probably three or 400 Wow I built my first radio-control snowmobile in 1980 really it's something I always wanted I had to build my own resistor was not on the market okay something I've often repeated how many slugs do you think you built uh since then Oh probably 150 different ones really we had a small company maybe 15 years ago we did have the guys were the version that we built a hundred of they were all 16 cc guys it cost a lot of money to make them by hands right eventually that dissolve that that partnership with someone else was a bigger scale one-third scale they're heavier and then not play to size we built a bunch of racing version to the ice oval racers so we went to a bunch of different full-size races with world champions and I have a couple in museums in Eagle River which is a world championship track met all the the greats of snowmobile racing Villeneuve's my dream has been fulfilled I had no idea that I would come from being a little kid like in snowmobiles to making models and then impressing world champion snowmobile racers so it's been pretty cool I plan on doing a really good video this winter and with the help of you guys and sending that to some possible manufacturers so who radio-controlled models cars mainly and because they have the marketing and they have all that set up yeah well that's the thing is to take your handmade design and make it into something that can be manufactured is that the plan that's that's my ultimate plan yeah well I got to tell you you certainly got the attention of all the other RC guys that were out here today bashing around with your truck so if you do find that manufacturer I'm sure you're not going to have any trouble selling them all those guys here today that want to buy them already awesome all right Jordan well thanks a lot for showing us she's badass legs you

    I've been lifelong friends with Jordan! He built his first twin track sled in the basement of the house I grew up in. So damn proud of you Jord! Love you Bro!

    Back in the mid 90's my ski-doo dealer had one of the 16cc gasoline fired mx-z's. At the time I think they were asking like $1200 and that was their cost.

    I want to buy one/build one that is awesome, my first rc snowmobile was about 35 years ago and it was junk. I had way more fun with my COX control line PT-17 trainer. I am in the market for one if they ever come up for sale.

    Sorry, sorry , sorry !     I am a hobbist, I have a full time job and this just my hobby so I only sell the odd one.  I am also a not too swift on the computer !    
      
      I would suggest contacting or joining a hobby manufacturer forum and bug them to build an RC snowmobile !    Traxxas was not too receptive to my idea and if I havent replied to anyone's E mail I am very sorry but eventually I will …
