The blurring line between car and toy

Ford GT replica runs on oil and gas while hitting 60 mph.

This whole remote-control toy thing is getting out of hand. It's one thing for miniature RC cars to go 10 or even 22 miles per hour , but 60 mph? And a body more than 3 feet long?

That describes the "Ford GT Nitro Gas RC Car," which has a 23cc engine, 15kg metal gear ratio and disc brakes, according to SlashGear. But here's the kicker--it has a 450cc fuel tank, which it needs because it runs on a mixture of oil and unleaded gas. No wimpy batteries here.

We can think of only two reasons that someone might want one of these: Either to terrorize the neighbor's dog or to chop off the roof and squeeze into it as an alternative to a Mini Cooper.
