Move over Scaletrix! Here are some competition level slot cars that go so fast you can barely keep your eyes on them.

Known as wing cars, they race on a 1:24 scale track that has steep banks and runs approximately 47 m (155 ft) long by eight lanes wide.

The wing cars can hit speeds of 80-160 km/h (50 - 100 mph) clocking lap times from 1.5 to 3.0 seconds. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) takes less than 0.3 seconds while the tuned electric motors are calculated to rev up to 300,000 RPM at 16 volts!

The video was taken during the Wing Car European Championships held in Helsinki Finland in 2010.

Editor's note: We are aware that the video is dated almost two years ago and wing slot car racing has been around for 40 years. Nonetheless, it's still cool to watch and we hope you think so too. So, here's to good fun!
