Watch this 'Fast and Furious' remote control tributeThu, 24 Apr 2014
The convergence of great remote-controlled cars and super cheap video cameras has brought us more RC spoof videos than we know what to do with. But this one stands head and shoulders above the rest.
Vax Studios put this “Fast and Furious” homage together and dedicated it to the late Paul Walker. It features a Nissan GT-R RC car and a Camaro standing in for Dom Toretto's Charger.
This is more than your average spoof. The people from Vax used a few RC cop cars, an RC Nissan Silvia and a bunch of toy construction equipment for the big finale. It also makes great, if not a little cheesy, use of slow motion, in addition to some cleverly placed Go Pro cameras.
Needless to say, it's one of our favorite RC videos in a long time. And if you can do better, please send us the video. We'd love to see it.
