R/C Gear (sometimes sarcastically referred to as Arsey Gear) was a parody series of Top Gear, complete with similar opening titles. The show focused on reviews of remote control cars in a Top Gear format. Only two episodes were ever produced, before the show was cancelled due to a low view count and high production cost. A third episode was produced in 2017 subtitled The Grand Finale which was a sketch used to end the short lived series.
The Show Edit
Episode 1 focused on the three presenters testing out random remote control toys on a gravel terrain.
Episode 2 featured an expanded format including a greenscreen studio backdrop with VT of the three reviewing remote control cars based on vehicles seen in movies.
Episode 3 was subtitled The Grand Finale, and did not feature Wade. Instead Anthony and Stephen are fired from the show with One Nut and Mysterious Geoff taking on the presenting duties.
- The idea came from Stephen's previous Top Gear parodies, one from a review of the Back to the Future DeLorean remote control car as well as a longer parody seen in the original 1,500 subscribers video in which he reviewed an RC Mini.
- Although making an appearance in both original parodies and other videos, Dee Bee (Votesaxon07's take on The Stig) does not appear in the R/C Gear series.
