Hey, thats pretty cool!

If you get enough people into it, you could have a drag race going!

Those are sweet. A lot faster then I expected. The rocket cars at the end were sweet also. They fly!

They were running on a 1:10 drag strip, (only 132 feet) but still go to between 45 to 50 mph and ran the track in less than three seconds. Not too shabby!

Yes, we usually try to run those cars on a 165 foot track (quarter scale eighth mile). Speeds are a few mph faster, too.
