It smashes, it crashes, it drives through a flamethrower at 1,000 FPS.

Have you ever wanted to crash two 100-mph-capable R/C cars together in slow motion? Sure, we all have.

Watch this R/C Jeep Wrangler plow snow

There's no denying the fact that the Jeep Wrangler is one tough and rugged vehicle, and there is apparently little lost when the SUV is shrunk down for a 1:10th scale radio-controlled version. Proving that the Axial SCX10 Jeep Wrangler is not your run-of-the-mill R/C car, YouTube user Andrew Dykiel posted a pair of videos showing it clear about an inch of snow from his sidewalk and dri

Watch these hyper-realistic R/C tractors farm a mini field

As a teenager, I was obsessed with radio-controlled cars, which led to my purchase of a Team Associated RC10T3 and a Team Losi XXX buggy (remember those?).

Caption Contest: Giving the gift of green against our better judgement

The move to electric-powered vehicles is still in its fledgling stages, but there are plenty of signs that the next few years will finally start ushering in battery-powered transportation for the masses. But there's one class of vehicle that has almost always been powered by batteries: R/C cars. Slap in a couple of 9-volt batteries and a slew of AA cells, and kids of all ages get to pretend they're Ken Block in the backyard until mom says it's time to clean up for supper.
