    It depends which pipes you are using. Some are louder than others. I'm not certain that noise level is restricted for this competition. Main rules are wheel driven, under 40" and no thrust-powered vehicles.

    In the Car Action World's Fastest RC Car Challenge? Well, I can think of at least one reason why they aren't allowed. See if you can guess what it is.

    I gave up, so
    I read the rules...

    1. Wheel-driven vehicles only. Vehicles powered by thrust (jet, rocket, propeller, etc.) are not allowed. Turbine power is allowed only if the turbine is used to drive the wheels, not for thrust.

    2. Vehicles may be powered by engine(s) or motor(s) of any number and configuration.

    3. Vehicles may be any weight, with any chassis configuration and any number of wheelsóbut the completed vehicle may not exceed 40 inches (1016mm) in length.

    The rules also state:

    Special awards will also be given for "Most Innovative Design," "Fastest-Looking", "Fastest Production Car" (for vehicles that are still recognizable as production-based cars and trucks), "Fastest Engine-Powered Car" and "Fastest Electric Car." We may also make up some awards at the event, based on the type of vehicle that show up (Fastest Monster Truck? Fastest Motorcycle? Surprise us!). It's a top-speed contest, but we'll also reward creativity and originality; we don't want every car to be a rail with 20 cells.

    This is really about the fastest VEHICLE, and motorcycles are indeed allowed. As are trikes, six-wheelers, etc. Heck, if you think you can build a 120mph gyro-balanced unicycle, go for it!

    Back to tech talk: the only trouble I see with a two wheeler (other than launching it) is a lack of traction. I predict many cars will be capable of higher speeds than they actually reach because the tires break loose. When aerodynamic drag exceeds the tires' grip, the wheels are going to spin as surely as if you'd parked the car against a curb and punched the throttle. Two tires will always have more grip than one.

    Heh. This should be interesting. I for one, would definitely like to see a really fast tank

    ...Does this 40" thing include 1/5th scale?
