According to his YouTube page, Kevin Talbot is building a monster truck and has dreams of competing in the Monster Jam world finals. When it comes to lofty goals, this one is definitely falls in that upper echelon. I don't know how exactly the guy plans on pulling this whole thing off, but hey, you can't knock him for trying.
Of course, this project isn't an overnight type deal, so in the meantime, Talbot keeps himself busy by customizing remote controlled cars and posting videos of the cars in action on YouTube. One of his more over-the-top creations is a RC car with saw blades for wheels, and as you can see from the video, this thing isn't something you'd want your kids to messing around with. Basically, anyone who's planning on keeping all 10 fingers intact definitely would want to operate this in a safe and controlled environment.
If you've ever seen the show BattleBots, you know that this thing would have the potential to do some serious damage when stacked up against other souped-up machines of destruction. With the right modifications, it'd absolutely be a force to be reckoned with.
While most RC cars tend to be built for either speed or for off-roading, Talbot's invention seems to be meant to just dish out as much damage as humanly possible. By the same token, it also looks like it could be suited to take on different types of terrain, especially snow or ice. Using this as an off-roading vehicle as opposed to a weapon of mass destruction would definitely be the safer option. Though, considering that the machine's inventor has dreams of Monster Jam stardom, safety probably isn't one of his top priorities.
