Everyone loves a good R/C car (not those crappy ones that are wired to the controller). Some people spend lots of money on super fast, professionally-built models that have real little tires and serious motors, but how many people can say that their R/C is a Corvette with a rocket motor attached to it? The guys at High Tech Corvette were bored so they strapped a rocket motor with 18lbs of thrust to the R/C and filmed it going absolutely haywire in slow-motion. From one angle you can see a wheel fly off after the car moves less than a foot. This would not be a practical toy since the motor is obviously too strong for the car, but we want it anyway.
