How fast is my RC car!

0.00/5,
Well, lately I've been having some fun with my RC Car and thought I'd try to measure how fast it goes as I've got a new brushless motor (Ezrun 9T/4300Kv), 60 amp ESC, and a few long lasting LiPo batteries.

The speedometer recorded a max reading of 34Mph (54.7Kmh). I was very impressed!
