RC Car Almost hits 100 MPH, Feels like Turbo Movie [Video]
Instead of spending 90 minutes or so to watch Turbo, you could get the kind of miniaturized go-fast story over with in a little over one minute by clicking the “play” button of the clip below.
This brings us a custom RC car that almost manages to hit a whopping 100 mph (160 km/h) on the drag strip. Just like Turbo the snail, the main character in the film, the little car finds it a bit difficult to cope with the imperfect runway and eventually flips over - the movie is set on the Indy 500 track though.
We have to explain that this is a custom 1:8 scale McLaren body placed on a shortened XO-1 chassis. However, it doesn’t feature the XO-1’s electric motor, but a Mamba Monster 2,200 kv motor.
By the way, in real life objects this small can’t trip the sensors on the track, so we don’t know the 1/4 mile time for the RC model.
