Default RC games, when bashing gets boring

Has anyone created or know of any cool activities to do with your vehicle? One day I was out for like 6 hrs. just jumping and racing, hitting each other, don't get me wrong, it's fun but day after day, especially if you're at the same place everyday with really not much in the way of obstacles or dirt. Mostly grass and gravel. I saw a vid before where people taped balloons to the rear of the cars and tried to pop each others. Looked interesting, and slightly gay, but it was different. We tried some RC soccer, but that didn't work out all that well, maybe with 6 trucks it could be interesting. Back in the day we would duct tape hammers and chisels to the front of our cars, but that gets expensive and ends your day really quick. Anyone with any innovative ideas besides jumping contests?

why dont you try racing?

i've never much enjoyed "bashing" i'd much rather get on a track and go as fast as possible around it

I do race, every Sunday, however that's not everyday. Plus even the track gets boring.

racing solved it for me. and trying to go to the bigger 2 day races once a month or every couple months out of town brings it to new levels as well.

ok, so there's nothing else to do with your RC vehicle besides bashing, racing, follow the leader, tape a ballon to the back of it, and jumping contests. Got it. Racing is fun, especially when you do good, but I personally have just as much fun bashing if not more most of the time, especially at construction sites with natural quarterpipes dug out by backhoes and giant dirt hills. But bashing is free, and racing costs me $10 every week.

i dunno, maybe a tug of war? or a game of "tag" maybe, what about them sonic combat sensor things you can get for RC planes? ive seen infra red vesions on little toy tanks, make up a half pipe and try some serious stunt work maybe? or a ramp you can run two wheels up and get you RC going on the other two? coke can slalom course? precision driving course with slaloms and "garages where you have to reverse in and stop before you can move onto the next thing such as a very narrow part? time yourselves over these obsticals and your improving your skill as well as having fun, find a big pile of dirt and try hill climbing? LOADS of possibilities!!

Have an uphill race where anything goes, and tie 1 small balloon to the rear of your trucks and if your ballon gets poped before you reach the top of the hill then your out of the race. Don't just make the race to the top of the hill but rather back down too.

Have the balloon poping contest with teams.

Have wheelie contests to see who can ride theirs the longest distance.

I know this falls into the catagory of jumping but you could always light your truck on fire and try to jump a power line or even better chase cows. Its been done but it sure would be fun.
