It’s like doing 3,000 km/h

Speed record in 1:10

Our heavyweight champion, Balázs, or better known as Assur on the premises is the news writer of the mother site, Oh yes, he’s an automotive engineer too. They say there isn’t a data that has ever escaped his mind, all we know is that he can drop into any conversation about any car that was made after the war, and he’ll be able to add a ton of details you won’t ever be able to find in books. He has been thinking of selling his longserving Volvo for years, so he always has some used car adverts open on his computer, just in case. Has a wife and two (almost grown-up) children.

Nic Chase has broken his own 2 year-old record with the newest version of the R/C Bullet.

In 2012 Nic Chase made it to the Guiness World Records by reaching a speed of 276 km/h driving an RC model. The electric R/C Bullet has been enhanced since – see for yourselves.

The new record has not yet been made official, but it’s incredible nonetheless: the 1:10 scale, 4WD machine is now capable of doing 315 km/h. If things could be enlarged in proportion, that would be 3150 km/h in 1:1. Some hardly negligible circumstances would get in the way of that, of course, like the speed of sound which is more or less constant. A car ten times the size of the RC model would behave differently, as it would travel at three times the speed of sound, at which speed the air would have different qualities than at a speed lower than the speed of sound. The record speed is still amazing, though.

Chase has not called the Guiness authenticators just yet. Word is out that he plans to increase the speed before setting another record, aiming at an insane 200 mph – that’s 321.87 km/h.
