The car is very light weight and has a fan inside that creates a vacuum between the car and the wall. I doubt that it can drive on the ceiling.

I am fairly sure that it could be done. Maybe with a small lipo and a turbine on one of these tiny helicopter motors, Now that you mention it, I really want to have a model car that can do ceilings

Maybe the lightweight car can drive on a flat ceiling if you start it there.

Fully charged battery, probably would work. Never thought of suction was a little curious how they worked. It's kind of like an anti-hover craft. For touring or inside race course tracks such a design would provide absolutely incredible handling characteristics on a full sized vehicle.

Air Hogs make a few Zero Gravity remote control cars. They climb walls and drive upside-down on smooth ceilings. Most use IR for remote control. One follows a dot of light from a laser pointer.

Brabham BT46B 'fan car' - Voluntarily withdrawn from F1 competition after one race and one win. Obviously an active aero mod would make the racing pretty boring. Claimed the fan was primarily for 'engine cooling'.

Obviously not applicable to Saturday Night 'dirt track' racing. :D
