Yes criminal you are right about the RC car being able to out accelerate a vehicle but this was not a drag race. The RC car was slowly brought up to top speed while the vehicle moved along side it until the RC car reached its max and then note was made on what the speedo reading was. It probably wasn't too accurate but a reasonable Indication none the less.
The test was done on a long road in an Industrial area on the week end.
The full scale car drove in the right hand lane while the RC vehicle was in the left hand lane so the passenger could control and see it properly.
Dont try this at home folks
