I used to have an RC boat that ran 80 mph... It was gas powered... If I was in a fast boat, I could stretch it out for a while... or drive it on a small, 2-4 acre lake...

Then you could row out to it when you crashed or ran out of gas...

That car is sick, but you sure better know what you're doing. I have this one, and it's a blast to drive at 45 mph.



It'll go 65+, but I haven't bought the necessary accessories yet.

Hell, my T-Maxx only has a top speed of 45mph and it gets out of range pretty fast too. You don't realize how quickly a quarter-mile reception goes away. What really sucks is when you put it on its hood 100 yards away and you gotta hoof it over to the crash-site to put it on its wheels and restart the engine (and pray the nitro didn't drain from the tank, in my case)

Okay, that's it, let's all bring our R/C's to the fest

I agree, Lets bring them.. Parking lot grudge races...or beer delivery...I'll velcro a coozy on top and send beer out to people across the lot from us...
