Model car at 204 mph speed
The model vehicle of the video reaches the awesome speed of 204 mph, which means that for a moment it turns from a toy to a killing weapon. Just as a lost particle from the CERN accelerator.
Anyway, at this competition modality for model vehicles, the car is tied to the stake in the center of the circuit, which has about 20 meters wide (of diameter). The basic concept is similar to the cable-piloted aircraft, except for in this case the driver doesn’t control the steering nor the throttle of the car. The only aim is to go faster and faster before it runs out of fuel.
The vehicle can be powered by a combustion engine (usually by burning alcohol), or by electric engines. The current speed record is set almost at 214 mph. This VoltsWagen is a competition model with an electric engine, able to reach the 200 mph on a good day.

This remote-control car race may be more thrill than the last 5 F1 championships, and not only because of the flying overtake.
