One fast remote controlled car - the Schumacher Mi3 [video]

World's fastest remote-controlled car clocks in at over 260 km/h (161.76 mph)

Yes, it's pretty much a motorized skateboard but some engineering prowess must have gone into making this thing in order to get it to reach 161.76 mph (260 km/h) while still maintaining aerodynamic stability.

It is Nic Case who set this world record for the fastest remote-control car at the Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina, United States of America.

Now, we must give Mr. Case his due accolades because the man spent six months working on this Schumacher Mi3 and his work is, indeed, impressive. The remote-control car is made of a handcrafted carbon-fiber chassis and is powered by an 11 horsepower electric motor fed by a 12-cell battery pack. Case spent more than $4,000 on components to build the car.

But Case isn't satisfied with his achievement. He now plans on breaking his own record with a 200 mph (322 km/h) remote-control car called the "Streamliner".

Good luck, Nic.

In order to set the record doesn't he have to do it in both directions? Or is that not applicable to R/C cars. In the clip it shows only one way, maybe we're missing the whole clip. Just a thought.
