Looks like a Lipo explosion, then burned down the whole car.

Looks more like the victim of fire damage than a 120 mph crash.
Still quite a mess!

Seems about right for a 120mph crash then followed up by a lipo fire.

looks like it crashed into a fire.
would have been something to
see, the whole car is pretty much
burnt.

bottom chassis plate might be salvagable.
looks like an expensive belt driven touring
car jobby.[X(]

It doesn't look that bad, I mean the front end is destroyed but thats about it. My guess is its a X-ray T1 or T2

No, that car is toast, not much to salvage, even the metals are ruined due to heating damage. If they had a temper, they are gone too.

Engine just broken in, only 2 gallons of fuel ran through it! Wife says I need to get rid of the toys...

That car chase is awesome. The wheelie scene is kinda ridiculous though.

Looks like it was in a REAL car that crashed and burned at 120mph.
