worst thing is that you obviously dont know what a car stand is, and it'd be great to see a video of this, im not saying its impossible, but highly unlikely.

You said workbench not car stand duh. Either bench or car stand they won't make a car faster. Like I said you don't make any sence. NEXT......

pretty sure they usually go hand and hand with eachother. Good luck if you decide to make a video to really show you actually did something cool with one of these.

The speed shown on the iphone app can't be accurate or reliable, because it's only being based on rpms and gearing.

Free revving the car on the bench would give far higher numbers than it would get actually running on the road.

If it was running on the road and it caught air for a moment while you were giving it throttle, you would get a much higher reading.

Simply telling the app you are using a much larger pinion or smaller spur could give false information.

Take a video of the car being clocked by a radar gun, like this:

+ YouTube Video

If someone can make a 1/10 do 157mph.

I guarantee a purpose built 1/7 like the Traxxas will eventually be made to do 200+

If your daddy could afford to buy you the XO-1, he can manage to buy you an inexpensive radar gun as well. Shoot a video of the actual car making the speed run verified by radar (the Traxxas TQi / iPhone display is worthless as proof by the way)...

...or it didn't happen

Well if the traxxas box that's in front of me says 0-100 in 4.9 seconds than you do the math
