RC Car Gone Wild!

RC Car Gone Wild!

By Nicole James

Given that having racecars can be one of the most expensive hobbies and sports to participate in, it seems only natural that gear heads would turn to remote control cars when funds are limited and the need to speed is unparalleled. Some of these RC cars can reach speeds over 100MPH. Coming in all different shapes, sizes, and endless amounts of mods available to them, RC cars can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands. So the question poses itself: what’s it like to be hit with an RC car going 100MPH? Based on the guy in this video… it looks painful.

In the video, you can see this guy has a pretty serious setup. This is definitely not a kid’s toy. Unfortunately for the RC driver, it looks like a little too much to control. It’s difficult to see exactly what goes wrong here, but before he knows it he’s upside down. The RC driver appears to be in a lot of pain, but only suffered a gash on his leg. As for the (probably extremely expensive) RC car, it lays in the street in about five million pieces. Really a lose-lose situation for this guy. At 1:38 is where the video gets good.
