What? The Bimmer, or the Police LT1?
That was hilarious. The deputy almost killed himself AND the other trooper flying down the pike in his unit, when the kid gave him the shoulder fake (HAHAHA!!!), and he lost his cool, and spun himself out. What a chucklehead.
Kid was owning deputy dork until dad's expensive toy wet the bed. He got lucky.
Sorry, wrong link... Edited to the right one
I want to use engines like that for big RC planes. I could totally dig, say a 1:3 scale P-38 Lightning, or a 1:3 scale P-51 Mustang, or a 1:3 scale Cassna 337.
I think all of those are seriously cool.
we need to get mini people now...
I was thinking the very same thing!
imagine having to make a radio controlled scale person to control a for-real ferrari. Seriously cool, I love that.
or like a full virtual reality suit which you could control mini you with!
If you examine the frames when they show when the car "dies" and the suspect is later caught, you will notice that they just reused the footage from when he made a U-turn. Apperently the suspect was not caught by the police; his father turned him in later.
THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!
How fast would something like that go? My old R/C car had a 3.3cc 2 stroke engine, which is equivalent in volume, though much more powerful than a full scale car with a 3.3L engine... that can pull 50,000 RPM. That 100cc engine looks pretty cool; I've never seen something so complex in a remote controlled car. The vast majority of R/C car engines are 2 stroke, 1 cylinder engines.

It's all in the power to weight ratio if your talking theoretical top speed. But I don't think you could easily ballpark HP from a calculation based on the scale of the engine. Sure it works exactly like the full size but it doesn't have the same reciprocating mass as the real engine. I don't really know how that would work.
But it's my guess that this thing would fly.

I've seen things like that, but drag cars and 1/4 scale aren't very popular nowadays. I was thinking more along the lines of 8th scale or smaller.
