Default I got bored and created a rc pringles can :)

its a ducted fan from a fa/18 plane that crashed, and the chassis from a micro rs4, I'm currently looking for a unloved 1/10th scale or 1/8th scale car chassis so i can make it more stable for speed runs if you search for rc pringles car you should find 2 videos of it at a convention I was at.

That has to be filmed in like North Korea or something, how are you running a nitro fueled car in what looks to be an airport?

That is very nice work. Have you updated the chassis for more stability as it seems very unstable. Great job IMO.
