The Toy Car That Can Reach 100 MPH

One of the coolest gadgets that money can buy would be a remote controlled car. They are always fun to drive around the house or take outside for a quick race with your friends. They can replicas of your favorite supercar and it is the perfect gift for all ages. With this in mind, meet the Traxxas XO-1, the ultimate remote controlled toy car. The reason for this is not just because it looks great with clear design ideas taken from the Ferrari 458 or because it has a very complex controller that has a slot for your iPhone which can display information, but because it can reach a speed of 100 mph and even more.

Some people may not consider that being very much as remote controlled toy car manufacturers tend to show the speed of these toys depending on how they scale. This means that if the 1/5 scale toy is going 20 mph, its scale speed is actually 100 mph. Here is where the Traxxas stand out as it can actually reach 100 mph. the way it gets to this speed is even more interesting and it can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds making it faster than the real version of the Bugatti Veyron. There is no point in calculating its scale speed as it is close to the speed of sound.

The controller is very high tech and it should be in order to keep such a small but strong beast on the road. As mention above, there is an iPhone application that allows you to tweak with the performance and also get live telemetry readouts when you are pressing the button to the floor.

At such high speeds, if you do the smallest mistake, you can wave goodbye to the $1.500 toy car but it can be difficult to resist the urge to push it to its limits. The little electric motor is a wonder of technology and it can run at 23,000 RPM to let you hit the triple digits speeds. While it isn’t quite affordable, it is a great gadget for adults that still have a kid inside them.
