JUST CURIOUS WHATS THE FASTEST RECORDED SPEED OF AN R/C CAR....WAS IT GAS OR ELECTRIC? ALSO,,,THAT THING RCCA HAD ABOUT THE HPI CAR GOING 100MPH WAS THAT 100MPH TO SCALE OR WAS THAT LIKE THE CAR WOULD BE THE SAME SPEED AS A REGULAR CAR GOING 100MPH?

When they say it was doing 100MPH, they meant it, that's not a scale speed or anything. The same 100MPH in a Honda, or a Ferrari was the same 100MPH that the RC car was doing.

I believe he is asking about the speed of R/C cars. The Tether car on the Picco site is not R/C, but definately fast.
