The Arizona Republic reports that Scottsdale resident Jim McCabe has devised a new motorsport for people who want all of the thrill of stock car racing with none— and I mean none— of the danger. MiniFASTCARS are 1/4 scale (four feet long) gas-powered (one cylinder) remote control stock cars, running on a scaled racetrack. "Drivers" race the vehicles by remote control, using on-board cameras and telemetry. Mr. McCabe, President of Racing Visions LLC (Likes Little Cars?), says remote racing "gives you the rush of speed without the liability… Nobody's going to get hurt doing this." Except, perhaps, his investors.
