Crazy. A jet-engined tractor model.

Radio controlled madness

Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

If you think you’ve seen everything RC models can be used for, think again.

I was just surfing YouTube as usual. Here a click, there a click and suddenly a video appears and makes my jaw drop. It makes me ask myself loud in the empty room: WHAT?! I just f@ing don't believe this!

I really should get used to the fact that I am totally wrong when I think that I've already seen all the crazy things people create using RC models: flying race trucks, custom built WWII tanks propelled by petrol engines, dragsters competing against each other on a 1/10th dragstrip – hell knows what else. And every time I saw these, I was amazed by what real enthusiasts can create when building RC models.

Once again I had to realize there's a lot more out there. My mouse-moving and clicking muscles got paralyzed in seconds, shocked by the video I had just found about multi-engined tractor-pulling models! You watch the video, trying to get used to the sight of these little monsters, and then at 2:20 they fire up the JET-tractor...

What's the use of all of this, you may ask? Nothing. The point is to have fun. It's a great challenge to make plans for a model like this and then build it. They do this because they want to. And this is what makes the whole thing so great.

I want to be a hippie...

...doing speed. All I need for that, is a pro-tourer shoebox, with some air-cooled flower power.
