RC manufacturer Traxxas has been featured in our pages on numerous occasions and rightfully so, because when it comes to top speed, their RC racecars are far ahead of the competition.
And as it turns out, they’re even faster than some of the today’s more powerful production cars.
The latter was displayed at a recent drag "event," featuring a Cadillac CTS-V Sports Wagon and Traxxas’ Slash RC car owned by YouTube user hightechcorvette. Common logic suggests that the former, thanks to its 556-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine would be too much even for a pocket rocket like the Slash RC.
Well, throw out common logic out the window because the Slash RC not only held its own against the CTS-V, it even blew it off of the strip with the kind of diminutive fury that Traxxas RC cars have come to be known for.
There’s a reason why Traxxas sells their RC cars for a pretty penny. That reason was fully displayed in this video.
