Remote Controlled Godzilla Speeds Past 200kph - The Fastest R/C Car Ever?

Remote Controlled Godzilla Speeds Past 200kph - The Fastest R/C Car Ever?

What's more, it's a completely remote-controlled GT-R-renamed the GT-R/C-as demonstrated by Nissan racing driver Jann Mardenborough, who drove the auto around the Silverstone racing circuit from the passenger seat of a helicopter circling above.

The huge RC auto has been remotely driven by a British professional racing driver and GT Academy victor, Jann Mardenborough around the Silverstone race track.

British racing driver Jann Mardenborough, who was the third and youngest victor of GT Academy in 2011, took the GT-R /C for a spin around Silverstone race track in the UK.

It's all to celebrate the release of Gran Turismo Sport, and brings gaming to life in the most flawless way. The "GT-R /C" was driven by Mardenborough around Silverstone's National Circuit, where the auto hit a top speed of 131 miles per hour and averaged a speed of 76 miles per hour. Six computers mounted in the rear of the GT-R/C communicate back and forth between the controller and the vehicle up to 100 times per second.

Gran Turismo Sport is due to be released on October 17-barring any unforeseen six-year delays.

The Nissan GT-R is often thought of as the ultimate PlayStation (PS) auto.

During the run, a micro-computer transmitted inputs from the controller to the GT-R's on-board systems.

Brady tells Patriots fans not to worry about his shoulder
By comparison, in 16 regular season games last season, Patriots quarterbacks took just 24 sacks and were hit 73 times. According to National Football League stats, Brady has been sacked 16 times so far this season and hit 33 times.

Now racing full-time for Nissan in Japan, Mardenborough starred in the latest round of the Super GT Championship last weekend in Thailand, qualifying on the front row and setting the fastest lap of the race. Six onboard computers were able to update the controls 100 times per second, and the vehicle had a wireless range of just over half a mile.

Four robots controlled the steering, transmission, brakes, and throttle based on commands from the unmodified Playstation controller.

Nissan says the car's performance is not restricted by the radio controls so in the right conditions it is capable of a staggering 196mph - with no one in the driver's seat. In the helicopter, Mardenborough used an LCD display to judge speeds.

"This was once-in-a-lifetime, truly epic stuff", Mardenborough said.

James Brighton, JLB Design Ltd, added: "The GT-R /C presented some unique challenges and a number of engineering firsts for us".

Nissan plans to use the auto to tour primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom to promote careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
