Fastest RC car -1/8 scale 105mph

105 mph run

103 mph run
Internals look like a Neu Brushless motor (1515?), 4s 8400 mah li-po battery, Castle Creations Mamba Monster brushless speed control and mechanical brakes.

Brian Sigsworth hit 105 mph with his OFNA Ultra GTP. He was running a Neu brushless motor and 4s 8400 mah battery. These guys are insane driving on busy roads! Nice run. The run was captured on video in one continuous shot.
