Default Ferrari VS Xray NT1

Has anyone seen this yet:
I think they have taken it too far..

A while ago we were informed by Xray that there would be a race between a full size Ferrari and an Xray NT1 and the results would be shown on Austrian TV. Now thanks to YouTube here is the video. I said over 100m it would be no contest, the NT1 had it, and i think every other opinion was the same, and that was in fact the outcome. The same race run to 150m saw the Ferrari just get it, mainly due to a bad start for the NT1.

I'll say there must be a rematch for a 150 meter run. Very bad start for the NT1.

Nevertheless, all girls always prefer boys with RED.

The NT1 first gear ratio is rather low I believe thats why it takes off slower but also because of that ratio the first gear can be draged a little longer to catch up with then 1/1 ferari before the nt1's 2nd gear kicks in. But its rather suprise that the NT1 still manage to keep up and even over take in such a long 150m distance.

A sedan beat it! I wonder how bad it would be with a 1/8th scale, they call it the formula one of rc, it would only be right to see it race against a ferrari!

We have a big event from a hobbyshop here... we did a 1/8th scale vs the stunt motorcycle rider that comes... as soon as the motorcycle hits 3th gear the 1/8th scale loses, but by that time there was no track left

I want to see a 1/8th scale vs an f1 or similiar. Granted if a 1/10th scale goes 60mph. Thats equivalent to 600mph. Wonder what motor was on that nt1. I know the car could beat out quite a few things. Id like to see the point where 1:1 vehicles start beating it. Im sure the f1 would.

Essentially its the motor that beat it. Any current nitro car could do the same.
