Most would assume a Redbull RB8 F1 car would be the quickest in a drag race, but when pit against a MotoGP bike, rally car, and electric van in the ultimate drag racing showdown, things are a lot closer than you may think. For starters, the 850 hp F1 car weighs a mere 1,543 pounds, while the KTM RC16 bike clocks in at just 346 pounds and makes 270 hp.
Most would think that a Red Bull F1 car would most certainly be faster than any production vehicle, but the Rimac Nevera and McMurtry Spierling have other things in mind. More specifically, we’re looking at the Red Bull RB8, which is powered by a Renault RS27-2012 2.4L V8 engine making 750 hp, mated to a 7-speed, hydraulic power shift gearbox.
Before you ask why an ARRMA Limitless R/C car would take on a Red Bull F1 vehicle, just know that the former is capable of a top speed of over 100 mph. That’s right, this 1/7 scale beast is powered by a brushless mid-motor that sends power to all wheels, all running on two LiPo batteries.
