If you made it here, then you probably know that an official DVD was never released for RAD, creating a high demand for this classic. I've owned over 7 DVD "versions" of RAD. The one on this site has by far the best audio and video quality of them all because it comes from an HD source, is widescreen, and has Dolby 5.1 surround sound. 99% of the other versions you'll find are simple VHS transfers. At the bottom, I give more information about these low quality versions so you can avoid them. 

This is the best quality version of this movie that currently exists. Just compare the quality of the low quality versions to the one I'm selling (high quality version) and you'll see a massive difference. Each video is about 50 megs.

Movie Plot

Cru Jones (Bill Allen) is the best BMX biker in Cochrane. He's got the talent to become the best BMX daredevil in the world. As the local paperboy, he jumps, spins, twists, and flips his bike with amazing ability. Bart Taylor (Bart Conner) is the best BMX biker in the world, and he's in town to race in the $100,000 Helltrack competition, the most grueling BMX race in history. Cru wants a shot at winning the title, but his mom (Talia Shire) insists he take his college entrance exams which fall on the same day. 

For the first time in his life, Cru has to make his own decisions. He decides to go for Helltrack, but Duke Best (Jack Weston), the race promoter, has a dirty scheme for keeping the local whiz kid out of the race and away from his prized champion. Only the gorgeous Christian (Lori Loughlin), a member of the opposite team, can get Cru on track for Helltrack...and teach him a few things while she is at it!

Low Quality Versions

Avoid each of these low quality versions you may find on the net. They are all VHS quality. The most common one you might encounter is the RAD-On-DVD Version, which even says it's the best quality, when in reality it's just VHS like 99% of the others. Another common one is the Vermont Movie Store / Santa Flix Version which actually says remastered in HD on the back cover, when it's simply the usual VHS quality!
