If you drop a Tamiya TT-01 out of a 25th story window it'll pull 400kph easy on the way down..... just may not like the landing...


seriously, what sort of question is this??

its like driving at 100kph along the highway and throwing a golfball out the window it gains speed and passes you lol.... did you think for a minute asking this question as seriously if you were totally serious there is NO true answer......

Way way to many variables.... I have seen and I have done myself run a tt01 against xrays and corallys and so on and came well up in the mid of the pack no problem.....
Sorry if your serious I understand info is needed but dude you do need to learn to read forums before posting something this a little to silly...

2cents of mine

Default car

The fastest one I've ever seen is the one that doesn't hit the wall!

Isn't speed how hard you hit the wall and torque how far the wall moves?

NOPE.

Force = mass x acceleration

Wall didn't move far enough? Go faster or heavier!!!

he asked the fastest car that you can control. Im thinking he means the fastest car that you have driven. Sounds simple enough. Fastest one Ive controlled was my older paved oval pan cars, with a mod in it. Just out in the street, no idea how fast it was going, but it couldn't turn very well.

Kinetic energy for the win. kinetic energy = 1/2 mass * velocity squared.

Your equation falls apart if you aren't accelerating.

Why WOULDN'T you be accelerating?!? You can't let a wall slow you down!

Today's physics lesson......

If you stop accelerating, the equation falls apart.
If you keep accelerating, the car falls apart.

I have said it before and I will say it again.It does not matter if the surface is 80 feet wide, the walls are too close to the track.
