|Further Description/Back Story||This Vehicle, fully custom built from the chassis up by Motor Toys RC Division, is the first to start the 8th mile craze and 1 of a group of 4 fully custom built 6 and 8s drag cars, ranging in speed from 110-165mph all dedicated to speed runs, 8th miles and quarter miles on a real drag strip. It was aptly Nicknamed "The 8th Mile Assassin" due to its instant success on the strip vs cars, Teslas, Streetbikes and whoever wanted to pull up.
This car, while not the fastest of the group, still boasts 130mph top speed as well as a verified 0-60 in 0.8s (on video) possibly making it one of the fastest accelerating cars I have. It is only bested by my "Typhon XL", another fully custom build that actually shares the same exact power setup, but runs about 30mph faster.
This car made its fastest 8th mile pass vs a 600hp Mustang at 5.15s at 111mph. https://youtu.be/wl2jMm1EpgY
This time has since been bested by my Mamba/BLX 6s Typhon at 4.91s@101mph, but I have no doubts that the "8th Mile Assassin", with no losses on its record, is capable of well under 5 seconds.
Thanks for the consideration and check out Motor Toys Youtube to watch RC cars do some insane things!
