Au-XR8 remote control car!

Did you guys see the RC xr8 they have up for grabs in performance ford???

here are the bare essentials if you missed it

0-60km/h in 1.5 seconds
single cylinder pull start
single speed trans
Ford credit racing colour scheme / Gibson motorsport colour scheme
$450 unpainted minus electrics
$600 painted and assembled
$90 extractor and tuned exhaust system option
$120 two speed auto option
The two above supposedly give you a top speed over 100km/h

no scans of the pics but to see the ford credit racing car check out and scroll down half way.

last year some mates and myself went thru a remote control car phase (big boys toys) and are a lot of fun. Like many things u want to upgrade, go faster, after the novelty of any improvements wear off. We had the battery powered electric motor cars that did approx 40km/hr but not long after wanted to upgrade to the petrol engines. We were warned off by those in the know that they can become unreliable, dirty & a bugger to tune properly....i mean the electrics are still bloody quick and handle like they're on rails, but......suppose whatever floats ya boat really....just a thought....
