for this experiment we’ve come here to Swindon it’s the Wiltshire branch of the Science Museum so it’s got the sort of academic atmosphere we need it’s also got a socking great runway which is excellent because a good radio-controlled car needs to be fast so that means we’ll have to make our normal g-wiz a lot faster let me demonstrate the problem with speed by carrying out a simple drag race I shall pilot the g-wiz 48 volts naught to 40 in quite a while and have put it up against an everyday normal car a genuine 500 horsepower Mustang should be close come we’re off we offer off he’s pulling away he’s pulled away some more so not good but our radio-controlled version should pet things up we’ve made it using the scientific principle of more is more basically it’s got ten times more battery and to help put that power down we’ve fitted it with fat tires from a Formula three racing car so let’s run the drag race again three two one yeah try that that’s more like come on come on yes yes but a good radio-controlled car should also handle well so along with the fat tires our gee whiz has been lowered and widened to test its handling we’ve made ourselves a circuit and to really find out if our mortal world it’ll be racing against a conventional remote-control car now for this race I shall pilot the little remote-controlled car because to get the best out of the g-wiz for this test it needs to be controlled by our finest driver someone who is near a sat on Santa’s knee someone who’s never watched Moonraker on Boxing Day right here we go oh come on not to worry I had a backup yes first corner coming up time to see what the Stig makes about handling changes we won’t like that no that’s not good second corner and I knew that if I caught the Stig he’d squash me again but no matter because the pickup is carrying a special load well i press this little button boy you
