An Audi R8 V10 is a seriously *fast* supercar. 

But is it faster than a radio-controlled equivalent? We've got a 1/6th scale Losi 6IX Audi R8 LMS car to put it up against.

Watch as we test them head-to-head over a standing quarter mile, or thereabouts, to see which comes out on top in our festive drag race special. Ho-ho-bleedin'-ho.

I think I would have more smiles on my face with the little guy than the big one - but must talk to Pirelli get some sticky rubber to keep it in a straight line - amazing stuff and at a decent fraction of the cost of the real thing - but no petrol no road tax and even the insurance will be pennies rather than pounds

"This have 1200 kV electric motor and 160 A electronic speed controller"

WTF! Are you saying that this little thing has over two hundred thousand horsepowers?

1200 kV x 160 A = 192 000 kW = about 216 000 hp

Okay, probably the RC guys have some wierd practice in rating their motors but this was what I was thinking when I heard this.
