Default Really this quick?

Does this RC8 have multiple gears or is the video just deceiving? Or do these things really accelerate this fast for a RTR buggy on the back stretch?

youtube.com/watch?v=a5gFoPM3QZI&feature=fvw

It just seems like it just shotguns on the backstretch.

Can't post links. Sorry.

That is typical nitro...
Electrics have even faster acceleration no matter the brand.
