Pocket Rocket: World's fastest R/C car goes 161mph

You're looking at the fastest radio-controlled car in the world, built by Nic Case. Smashing records all over the place for radio controlled cars less than 3 feet long, he calls it the Pocket Rocket.

Is 161mph not fast enough for you? This pint-sized speedster is 30mph faster than the previous world record holder. Nic says his next trick will be to boost his Pocket Rocket to speeds in excess of 200mph.

Good lord! Get out of the way, everyone. How many scale miles-per-hour is that? It must look like it's about the break the sound barrier. Here's a peek at the little speedster's undercarriage:
