I want one of those: Ken Blocks RC Gymkhana Car [Video]

No Comments Funny

I’ve been looking out for a decent RC car, initially looking for something like a 350z – however I have just discover the Ken Block RC Gymkhana Car and now my heart is sold!

Check the low down here:

Master of the Gymkhanna (with a minor in marketing) Ken Block has teamed up with Traxxas to create a radio-controlled version of Block’s #43 Ford Fiesta. The 1/16-scale Fiesta is fitted with a brushless motor that turns all four wheels and sends the mini-Block car down your driveway at up to 30 miles per hour. If that’s not enough juice to play out your dreams of winning a Gymkhana event, you can opt for another setup that features a new pinion gear, second NiMH battery and series connector. The additional hardware raises the top speed to over 50 mph.

Check the vid:

No word on whether it includes replaceable fenders and other body panels… a necessity after the Ken Block RC car inevitably hits a tree. Finally there is just one inevitable remaining question, will it blend?

I guess it does :)
