Best RC Car Video Soundtrack Songs?

Jun 09, 2011 12 Comments by

These days, you can make a decent RC video with your cell phone. But, when you start getting fancy and do a few takes with different angles, some slow mo, a bunch of other editing and effects, the next thing you’ll add is a cool soundtrack. Here’s my question: what song is the best soundtrack/background music for a RC video? What’s your personal favorite? One of mine is “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” by Primus. And, then there’s “Going the Distance” and “Race Car Ya-Yas” by Cake. “Going the Distance” is probably my all-time favorite and a little gem by Ludacris that starts with “Move…” is my all-time second. What are some of your favorite tunes to use in videos?

About the author

About Matt:I think it’s safe to say I’ve done a little bit of everything in RC. That said, I predominately race off-road and my current passion is short course. One of my all-time favorite classes is oval carpet racing. Besides racing, I can often be found working on one of my many never-complete projects, and it seems I have an ever growing collection of rock crawlers—specifically scale crawlers.
