The RC car tribute to Ken Block's Gymkana Six was three minutes of non-stop action, featuring all the stunts of Block's full-size Fiesta, including avoiding spiked balls, lifted tractors, drifting, and high speeds jumps. However, it may have some competition from the Fast & Furious RC car tributes that are beginning to surface on YouTube.
Fast & Furious 7 is about a year away from hitting theaters, and Universal Studio's production and promotion is heading into high gear. With that said, I'm sure they won't mind a little additional publicity in the form of tributes to the franchise, featuring some pumped up RC cars and creative filming techniques.
Nitrorcx, Vax Studio, and Leon Matthews are just a few of the folks behind these RC car tributes. So, whether you're a kid or just a kid at heart you will enjoy the time, imagination, details, and effort that went into the production of these pint-sized racing masterpieces.
Note: No animals or humans were harmed in the making of these videos. However, at least one Ken doll may have been superficially bruised.
