    Cute. An A10 is a lot of power for a MatchboxHot Wheels car!

    I chuckled at his calling the Electron Beam controller a "Race Controller". :rolleyes:

    I tried that when I was a kid, but without the string to guide the car. Taped a C engine to a hot wheels car and launched it down the road. It did not work as intended in my 10 year old mind.

    Seems even a rocket engine wired to a kids car needs a guide to go by. I wonder what this would do if launched off a rod straight up? (LOL!)
