For some people, playing with R/C cars harkens back to the days of our childhood when the only thing we cared about was not running out of batteries for our beloved radio-controlled machines.

But for other people, R/C cars are used in far more enterprising - and awesome - ways. Take Need for Speed, for example. To create some hype surrounding the release of the new NFS game, Most Wanted, Electronic Arts decided to have a car chase recreated...using R/C cars.

The result? A rollicking two-and-a-half-minute video of awesomeness.

Featuring a Nissan GT-R, a Ford Mustang, a Porsche 911, and a band of Chevrolet Corvette police cars, the R/C car chase scene is straight out of any car movie. The video was amazingly executed by the people of RocketJump, complete with stunts, sound effects, and even a police helicopter.

Check out the video and see for yourself how a Mustang was able to jump over a helicopter. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s because it is.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
