Default RC Speed Record on a Nascar Track!?

An MSPvideos exclusive caught the guys at Glenwood Rc trying to grab the land speed record on a FULL SIZE Nascar track. Located in Holland, New York Dr. Drew leads the guys to the world of underground speed clocking the Mamba Max powered TC5 - 5000mAh 3S Lipo reaching speeds of over 70mph.

nice try.. but the speed record stands at 161mph.... keep going.. you never know HOW far you'll get

I did 64.6mph with my Rc motorcycle and held that record for a year and even THAT was beaten the following year by a 87.3mph RC Bike run (by a good friend of mine whom I helped)

perhaps this is a Speed Record on an official Nascar track?
I don't know, I'm just the guy who holds the camera. lol
also one of the Glenwood guys corrected the description; it was a TC3 and 4S lipo.

It doesn't matter what track the record was done on. A TC3 has already been clocked faster than the car you were taping. Y'all got some work to do.

If you only run 10.5 or slower is there any need to get a "pro" version? Will a pro version make me faster in those classes vs a stock version?
