excellente promo !!! Le probleme c'est qu'avec des slogans comme ca "worlds fastest RC cars" on sent bien que la compet' (sur circuit j'entends) n'est plus vraiment l'ADN de la boite, ils vont chasser sur les terres de Traxxas... ils se losifient... enfin bon, Losi est en train de bien se reprendre :D

AlienRacing - tu es battu avant meme d'avoir commence :D

PS: spectaculaire (et classique) envolee a la fin de la vid... l'aerodynamique a ses limites incompressibles ;)

Arghhh !!! Bon tant pis... Ceci dit, si je raisonnais comme ça, je n'aurais jamais fait de RC : Dans notre ligue, avec tous les champions de France en Electrique qu'on a, je n'aurai même pas commencé.... :x_x:

Mais la passion... Ca ne se commande pas. :ninja:

--> Allez, on arrête le tricot et on va faire un peu de carbone pour changer !!!

Si c'est pas une voiture de Nic case, ça y ressemble, seulement il avait un chassis Schum si je me rappelle bien... Aurait-il changé de crèmerie ?

Alien : les pneus AV semblent être en nitril pour réduire les frottements, comme en voiture circulaire. Par contre ça doit motricer moyen...

Case avait des roues uzzinées en alu avec juste du caoutchouc vulcanisé dessus. Best of both worlds : pas de centrifugation , et un minimum de frottements.

Je ne pense pas qu asso veuille concurencer traxxas dans le domaine de la voiture la plus rapide.

La voiture de la video ne sera jamais commercialisé en RTR que je sache :grin:

Asso a simplement voulu montrer à quel point ils peuvent allez vite avec une voiture electrique

Remotely, Hobbyist Takes Control of a Tiny 200 M.P.H. Super Car

By RORY CARROLL, new york times

wheels-rccar-blog480.jpg

The SR11 radio-controlled car, which is loosely based on a model manufactured by Team Associated.

Later this summer at the Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, Calif., Nic Case, a clay-model sculptor at Ford’s advance design studios in Irvine, Calif, will attempt to lower his own land-speed record for a radio-controlled car.

Mr. Case’s newest in a series of record-challenging models is the SR11, a streamliner loosely based on the Nitro TC3 radio-controlled car manufactured by Team Associated of Lake Forest, Calif, and which we first learned about on Jalopnik. Powered by a 10-horsepower electric motor and weighing around 10 pounds, the SR11 on paper is capable of surpassing 200 m.p.h., Mr. Case claims, yet in this highly competitive hobbyist arena, hitting the double ton requires more than just low weight and high horsepower.

To counter the gyroscopic effect produced by the car’s spinning motor, a circular brass flywheel was fitted to its driveshaft to spin in the opposite direction of the motor. At 200 m.p.h., the 3-inch-diameter wheels would be turning at about 22,500 r.p.m., Mr. Case calculated. A vertical tailfin was added for stability and a long carbon-fiber rudder extends from the lower portion of the car’s stern to help direct airflow away from the car, reducing drag and turbulence.

Its aerodynamic body had to be slippery enough to avoid creating excessive drag while also producing enough downforce to keep the car on terra firma. When a touch too much air finds its way under a car traveling at sufficiently high speed, the car may affect a Cessna 172 for a fleeting instant before crashing to earth.

“A 1:10 scale car is so light that if you have any lift at all aerodynamically, your car could ‘try’ to become a plane,” Mr. Case wrote in an e-mail. “The trick is hitting the perfect balance between negative lift and coefficient of drag.” After his SR11 embarked on an unscheduled flight during testing, Mr. Case developed new bodywork with help from a colleague at Ford.

Perhaps as impressive as the engineering of the car is that Mr. Case expects to pilot it remotely over a distance of 1,900 feet. Keeping the car in view at such a distance presented yet another challenge.

“We have developed a simple long-range camera that is displayed in a monitor that I use to drive the car the first 700 feet with,” Mr. Case wrote. “We have considered many other ideas, but this works well for me. I think that will do the trick.”

Guinness World Records lists the record for a battery-powered radio-controlled car at 161.76 m.p.h., while the Radio Operated Scale Speed Association claims that 173.93 m.p.h. is the mark to beat for any radio-controlled car, regardless of propulsion method. Although the association and Guinness each used different methods for verifying top speeds, both bodies acknowledge that Mr. Case holds their respective world records.

At this stage in the car’s development, Mr. Case says he believes he only needs a long piece of tarmac to achieve his goal. “I’ve never had the car fully wound out,” he said. “The math says it will go 200-plus m.p.h. This summer, we should find out if the math is correct.”

Nick Case è da anni il modellista più veloce del mondo che nel 208 *** il suo automodello brushless era entrato nel Guinness dei primati ora sta provando a superare le duecento miglia orarie (200mph) equivalenti a circa 320 Km/h. Per il momento è arrivato alle 184 miglia, ma è sulla buona strada per migliorare ancora il suo primato mondiale.

hallucinant la vitesse ! Enfin dans la dernière video ,elle a du mal à dépasser les 170 mph.

296Km/h...:on fire: Vive le BLS en 10S !

... le premier proto décollait systématiquement autour de 170milles, le nouveau à nettement plus d'appui et semble en effet peiner.

Il pourrait être intéressant de connaitre la durée de vie de la transmission...:burnt:
