I don't know how the hell someone came up with the idea of racing a 2015 Subaru WRX STI against a Stick Bomb, but they should give her or him a medal.
The 2012 Nissan GT-R is a $90,000, 530Hp street rocket. The BlueDrone R/C car... not so much. But at least it'll hurt less when you wrap it around a tree.
161.76mph. That's how fast Nic Case's Schumacher Mi3 was going when it broke the RC world speed record.
Last week Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy claimed that they had a soda-powered RC car in the works, and they have delivered on that promise with the "Ene Pocket."
This thing is an R/C truck that can launch a freakin' autopilot helicopter. Can you even wrap your head around that phenomenon? It'd be like if your home had some mechanical port that opened with an remote, unleashing or storing your car (or maybe even two cars!) at will.
A Sony patent application reveals a very neat implementation of the PSP. Imagine a camera-enabled car you can drive around...through an augmented reality race course.
Most R/C cars are controlled by radio frequencies and a miniature steering wheel, but this car follows a dot of infrared light wherever you want it to go (similar to a cat chasing a laser). The only catches are that the car doesn't look to read throttle commands and it can only recognize light up to 5 feet away, so…

What can you get from a RC car with some wires attached and a lot of wine bottles? Drunk driving and the Mario theme, that's what. We have included the complete lyrics so you can sing along after the jump.
