Nic Case has set a new world record, driving his car at a top speed of 161.76 mph (You must watch the video below to get a true sense of how fast this is). And by car, I mean, remote-controlled car. The Schumacher Mi3, as it is referred to, resembles a rocket in speed and looks. It took Case more than $4,000 in parts and a six month time period to build the Shumacher. Fitted with a handcrafted, carbon fiber chassis, this toy car is powered by an 11 horsepower motor that is supported by a 12-cell battery pack.
It seems that Case’s hard work and money paid off as this carbon fiber toy car still holds the world record, although Case is said to be working on his newest remote control car to break his own record, called the Streamliner. I will keep my eyes and ears open on this to keep you posted!
Make sure to check out the video because just reading about the Shumacher Mi3 does it no justice. I personally think the Streamliner only has a chance for a new record, if Case continues to utilize carbon fiber!
