Video you need to see: Headquake and the little earth

Published in blog.hemmings.com

If you’re reading this and have been poking around YouTube for the last, say, six years or so, there’s a good chance you may have stumbled across Headquake and his amazeballs radio-control scale reproduction trucks. We’ve been marveling over these things for a long time and thought, “Why not share the love, a little?”

Far as we know–and that ain’t saying much–Headquake is Canadian. He’s got the patience of a Belgian beermaking Trappist monk. His focus on all the little details rivals that of your wife at your own high school reunion. It’s hard to actually buy one of his scale R/C cars. He’s got a cat.

But one of the more interesting things about Headquake’s little rockcrawlers is that they’re all handmade out of wood, as opposed to styrene. Apparently, his heavier wood bodies actually add weight to the vehicle, which allows for a more realistic body travel on its frame and movement across (or through) the terrain he drives them on. Now, that is very cool.

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to own a Headquake R/C truck, we’d love to hear about it. Or if you’ve ever seen the Canadian known as Headquake in person, we’d love to hear about that, too. A true statement is that we’ve never seen Alan Thicke and Headquake at the same place, at the same time. Think about it.
