Mammuth Works RC car is scary big

The classic remote control car is a simple, battery powered plaything small enough to fit on the shelf of the kids’ aisle at a grocery store. The latest RC project of the crazy people at Mammuth Works would have a hard time fitting through the front door of most houses.  It’s a big boy toy dubbed the Rewarron.   

In keeping with Mammuth’s mission to “research, plan and build remote controlled cars, that has never existed before in size, nor in design,” the Rewarron is being touted as the first production RC car built to a 1:3 scale.  In other words, it’s unreasonably HUGE.   

With dimensions of 72 x 35 x 29 inches, the gas-powered monstrosity weighs 176 pounds and can reach a top speed of nearly 45mph, meaning it probably shouldn’t be played with inside.    

Of the various engineering efforts to build the Rewarron as close to “real” car standards as possible, the vehicle features disc brakes, ABS and traction control.

Prices range from $5,500-$15,000 depending on three versions of the car: “Serial,” Premium,” and “Competition.” Each package features its own 4-stroke gasoline engine; a 200-cc, 250-cc or 350-cc.  

Orders for the Rewarron can be placed on the Mammuth Works website.

Watch it conquer an off-road course here.
