RC Car Sets New Land Speed Record At 171mph!

Apr 17, 2013 No Comments by

Last December Nic Case’s custom built R/C Bullet (RCB) set a new land speed record at 171.96mph.  This purpose built vehicle weighed in at 11 lbs and produced an impressive 11 hp.  The RCB was powered by a 15 series NEU motor and 11 PowerEdge 5000mah LiPo batteries.  Nic also used a Castle Creations speed control to regulate the power flow and a Futaba 4PK radio since it provided the most control and range for his speed runs.  For grip he used BSR hard purples on some custom made carbon fiber wheels.
