Fast and Furious fans, you have got to check out this tribute video from Vax Studio. Billing itself FF RC 7, this car chase flick is both a sequel to FF 6 and a tribute to film star Paul Walker, who passed away while filming Fast and Furious 7. Clocking in at 4:31, this is one epic car chase featuring remote control sports cars.
The Ultimate R/C Race Car Showdown
The short film begins with two cars gearing up for a race: The ’69 Camaro (license plate Toretto) and Nissan GTR (license plate O’Connor) rev their engines, ready to go. The light turns green and they’re off, the Camaro doing a wheelie. 45 seconds in, they pass a cop car. He pulls out, hot on their tails. The muscle cars have more horsepower and so they’re easily able to elude the cop. The Camaro grinds against the cop car, pushing it into a concrete barrier, and the car jumps the barrier, flips over, and knocks into a produce stand.
Then the cars are off again, tearing through a construction site and picking up another police tail. At the 2-minute mark, a Nissan Silvia S15 (Boswell plate) revs its engine and joins the chaos. Set on a collision course with the cop car, crisis is averted when the cop car jumps over the Silvia and crashes into the asphalt.
The ’69 Camaro and the GTR are neck and neck, trading turns being in the lead. With engines burning full throttle, they race up a construction ramp, manage to topple a crane, and somehow land without flipping. Slowly, the ’69 Camaro, the GTR, and finally the Silvia make way to the line. Another race is set to begin as the video cuts to a fadeaway. After watching the action, you’ll definitely want to see the “Behind the Scenes” vid.
What These High Performance Cars Have to Offer
While Fast & Furious R/C 7 features remote control cars, the real versions of these cars have some more than impressive specs themselves.
Nissan’s GTR Nismo kills it with 595 max horsepower (for the 2015 model) and a 6-speed dual clutch auto transmission. A streamlined body improves aerodynamic and keeps down drag. It could be yours for six figures.
The ’69 Chevy Camaro has a V8 engine, 400 horsepower, and sweet old-fashioned styling that make it a perennial favorite of muscle car collectors. For style and performance, it’s a timeless champion.
And finally the Nissan Silvia S15, which is available in manual or automatic transmission. What this car lacks in horsepower, maxing out at 200, it makes up for in its impressive styling and a performance body. The tricked-out version in the RC film would be a must-drive for any racing fan.
If you like the Fast and Furious franchise, you’ve just got to give this amazing video a watch to see what a remote controlled car can do in the right hands. After watching the video, we’re into sure if we like the action or the behind the scenes more. One thing we do know is, we can’t wait to see what Vax Studio will come up with next!
