You wont be able to find a pre-built/RTR car capable of those speeds. At least not without doing quite a few mods to the engine and other things as well.
You can get a car, put in a God-Almighty powerful engine and probably get it to 80 mph, but the engine would probably be the most expensive piece of the kit.

I've seen 1/8 nitro onroad cars clocked with a radar gun at +70mph on a closed coarse with stock gearing and "off the shelf" engines. I would look for a used 1 generation old (ae. Mugen MRX4) in decent condition, but you could still get parts for. As for engines, I would recommend something like a Novarossi 35+21 "Tuned" (aprox $600 new). The key to top speed is getting proper gearing, find the largest pinions and smallest spur gears made for whatever car you choose. Then the next tricky part, finding a long smooth, clean peice of asphalt.
Have fun!
p.s. if you're interested in a good used setup, let me know. You'll notice that I have a 100% "Trader rating". Anyone who's bought anything from me has been very happy. I have everything you'll need except for the gears and a radio, and starter.
Just PM me if interested

Just gear a car up internally and pinion and buy a few clutch shoes and belts to get it going... Question is, do you want to go round a track, oval or straight?

Is there a specific reason you want a car with a top speed of at least 80 mph?

curious myself... what is the fastest rc car/truck you have ever driven? 80mph is nothing short of being something a beginner shouldnt have control of..


If you spend the time tweaking, and money to make it happen... theres quite a few cars you can get going 80+. Friend of mine set the world record for fastest nitro rc car @ 120mph with a Mugen MTX3.. but its far from stock, and not many people would be able to drive a 2wd converted bigblock car at even half that speed.

I help test the Schumacher Fusion .28 before it came out and it did 79.6 mph out of the box. Phil Booth wanted to be sure before he put 80 mph on the box.

You can gear up a nitro car to go faster than that but you will soon burn out clutches. I have had a Kyosho RRR up to 100mph with a .21 engine in and a guy in the USA just had a mugen MTX-3 up to 120mph.

My new IC car has 2 x CMB RS .45 engines with a 3 speed gearbox capable of 160mph. If you want to see fast cars go to www.rossa.org.uk

Cheers

.................Are you wanting to drag race , road race or try to set a landspeed record with your car?? These 3 different types of racing require a different type of setup and motor.

why spend 500 dollars to get some car you are going to crash and be out of the hobby in about 15 minutes?...

Head to your your nearest hobby shop and buy a kit to build..or find out what the local racing scene is and join them...
