…Nic Case’s car is fast?

World's Fastest Remote Controlled Car

Nic Case’s world record setting car cost him $4,000, has all-wheel-drive, has no brakes, makes 11-horsepower, and features a carbon fiber chassis.

Oh, and it’s controlled by a remote, and sits just a few inches off the ground.

Recently, the custom creation was clocked at 161mph on the track, though Nic’s confident that with a few tweaks, he can easily break the 200mph barrier.

Just don’t expect to buy one of these at your local Radio Shack!

…Planes need more lights?

LED RC Plane

What does a remote controlled airplane that’s been covered in 30 meters of LED lights (1,800 individual LED blubs) and then flown at night look like?

A little something like this:

…It’s Things Thursday: Flying F@#k?

Flying Fuck

Thanks to a clever play on words, anyone can give a Flying F@#k.

That’s because the remote controlled Flying F@#k helicopter comes with an inappropriate body, but flies just like a regular helicopter, allowing you to send your Flying F@#k all over the room and helping you to spread your message far and wide: I now give a Flying F@#K!

…It’s Things Thursday: Amphibious Tank?

Amphibious Tank

What’s better than a remote controlled tank?

How about a remote controlled tank that can transform into an assault boat, fire BBs up to 30 meters, and deliver four beers in the process?

Sounds like a winner to me!

The Amphibious Tank from Danbar Toys might not be the safest way to entertain yourself on a lazy beach side afternoon, but who said anything about fun being safe?

(Except maybe these guys.)

…KITT is a Mustang?


It’s official: The car that will play KITT in the upcoming Knight Rider series is going to be a Shelby Mustang GT500KR, complete with a wing kit, blackout treatment, and the dancing red grill lights.

It’s subtle, sinister, and sometimes remote controlled, so I’m in love.
