MTRV8 Announces First Feature Film, Mod Kids USA, Kickstarter Project

mod kids usaRadio-Control startup MTRV8 (Motor-Vate) is excited to announce its first feature film, Mod Kids USA, and its subsequent Kickstarter project.

Mod Kids USA features seven children (aged 12-15 years old) as its stars as they compete in the 2016 Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) “Mod Kart” class.

The Mod Kart class features young girls and boys racing in small, off-road trucks powered by 450cc Yamaha engines with sequential transmissions. These miniature, tube-framed off-road machines are capable of reaching 90mph, making the action just as thrilling as the senior categories.

Mud flies in the film as these skilled juniors effortlessly drift corners, launch from jumps, and occasionally somersault end-over-end in their quest of becoming the next champion.

“These kids are learning tremendous skills for what it takes to go fast,” said Kyle DeLuc, current LOORRS Pro4 Champion. “And they do it at speed in tiny cars that shouldn’t technically be possible! But they’re getting it done and they do it with style. Of course, they occasionally crash horribly, or take each other out. But this is full-blown, off-road racing at its finest!”

Everything you’d expect from a racing film is here – high-speed action, big crashes, politics, relationships, competitive door-to-door racing, and driver rivalries. And, of course, no junior competition is complete without a dose of parent rivalry – Little League has nothing on these Moms and Dads!

MTRV8 has initiated a Kickstarter project to raise awareness for the movie and secure the funds to ensure this movie gets the treatment it deserves.

A variety of rewards are available to backers who pledge funds to the campaign. The most exciting reward is the opportunity to secure a MTRV8 R/C Truck at an unbelievably low price before its official release.

The MTRV8 R/C Truck is 1/10th scale with an aluminum chassis, 4WD, steady ball-head suspension, aluminum shock towers and oil-filled, adjustable, aluminum shocks, brushless motor, adjustable motor mount, plus gear differentials with high-performance oil.

The R/C is only $279 ($599 MSRP) as an early-bird reward.

“This is a story that needed to be told,” said producer Chris James. “These kids are incredibly talented and deserve a larger fan base and sponsorship. I’m confident this film will turn many onto this action-packed series.”
