    THE TRUE TOP SPEED OF REDCATS

    OK HERE IS THE TRUE SPEED! in the claim it says: With a powerful .18 Nitro Engine & 2 speed transmission the power is unstoppable and able to reach speeds in excess of 60 MPH+. that means THE ENGINE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DO THAT, ITS A TRICK SENTENCE, READ IT AGIAN>> THE ENGINE IS ABLE to. MODED alittle the car can go 60+ like say..hmm... add a high performance air filter and 25% nitro....... STOCK it goes 55mph.. MINE with ground and time measurements and my mods like a hp air filter, 30%, and more goes 65 mph. there you go.. also check the specs on the redcat tornado xp at the very bottem it says: Top Speed 90km/h (that = 55mph) good luck guys

    Stock:

    LIGHTNING 50 mph
    TORNADO XL 50 mph
    TORNADO XP 55 mph
    VOLCANO 55 mph
    HURICANE XL 60 mph
    HURICANE XP 65 mph

    LMAO!!...Dude...no offense but I don't think ANYONE can make claims like that until we have actual verified proof....ie: clocked by certified police radar.

    RE: THE TRUE TOP SPEED OF REDCATS

    yeah, i know what you mean... himoto was in a rc site last year and they said these speeds were "tested"... so who knows...?? USING 100 FEET MARKS AND A STOP WATCH MINE DID CLOCK IN AT APROX. 60 - 65 MPH (thats with 30% nitro, high performance air filter, no body, and warmed up.) i dont think anyone not even redcat knows exactly but i just gave the speeds himoto gives and they sound pretty reasonable....

    RE: THE TRUE TOP SPEED OF REDCATS

    Well, look at it this way, if the car can reach 60 like they claim, that's great but ... I don't want to hit a jump at even 50mph. I am very happy with the speed of mine. WAY faster than any 1/10 scale ESC car.
