How did you get into RCX cars in the first place?
I am still a kid at heart. R/C cars were a huge commodity when I was growing up. I would see commercials about Tyco Rc or Nikko and that made me storm to the nearest Toys R’ Us just to see it.
If you could swap channels with any other YouTuber, which one would it be (and why)?
I would love to swap channels with Freddiew. Filmmaking is my passion ever since I got a camcorder at the age of 10; although it belonged to my dad, I was always trying to replicate my favorite movie scenes whenever he was not home. Freddie and Brandon are doing things I would only dream of doing. They have all the fun shooting cars, girls, cats, special effects and even a series called “VGHS”.
What is the fastest you’ve actually gone in a real car?
The fastest I’ve gone in a real car would be 120mph in a Nissan GTR, in a controlled environment of course.
What do you hope to achieve with the NextUp program?
Youtube NextUp opened my eyes to just how fast the industry is growing and which direction it might be heading to. It really gave me perspective on where I wanted to go with my channel and how I can achieve it.
