Exclamation WOW!!! Check this out......

This past weekend was the first International RC Speed Challenge at Rockingham Dragway in NC.

Nic Case proved once again that he's the "King of Speed" in the realm of RC cars. His first run was 155 MPH and then he made a pass of 161.78 MPH.

During my years involved in the RC industry/sport I've come to really admire Nic, quite possibly more than any other one individual in the RC world. His ability to dream "big", then design and engineer extreme machines that are smokin' fast, has been nothing short of amazing. Simply put - he's in a league of his own.

Big kudos to Nick Case for his latest record!

timmay70;
No its not mine - Nic's a multi-talented guy. He did all the design and moldmaking himself. We do hash out aero stuff on the phone though, and have for many years.
