R/C CAR AIMS TO HIT 200MPH
Meet the toy car that's faster than a Ferrari
Powered by a 29.6 volt direct drive motor, his home-made X2 R/C car has been months in development and can theoretically hit 274mph. However, the actual figure will be nearer the 200mph mark when you incorporate air and road-generated friction.
Nic has put special foam based tyres on the X2 which can deal with the stupidly high RPM, while a gyroscope will be used to sense if the car goes off course and correct its path.
