Nic Case is first to break 200 MPH with an R/C car
After years of attempts, remote-control car enthusiast Nic Case has finally built a car that passed 200 mph, possibly setting a new land speed record for R/C cars. We’re not talking scale but actual speed here, meaning Case’s R/C car, nicknamed the Bullet, will be able to put many life-sized high-performance cars to shame.

According to ROSSA, the Radio Operated Scale Speed Association, a group that sanctions speed trials in the world of R/C cars, Case’s car hit a top speed of 202.02 mph. The speed hasn’t been recognized by Guinness World Records yet but it’s likely only a matter of time—Case was previously given the land speed record for R/C cars when one of his cars hit a top speed of 134.4 mph.
Case says that his latest car uses a custom chassis, body and tires, plus many off-the-shelf parts for the electric drivetrain.
