some big boys craved for speed in their real-life rides and for some, the need for speed is equally important even if their ride is a scaled down radio control car. if you belongs to the latter category, the TRAXXAS X0-1 4WD Electric RC Car is the perfect radio controlled ride for you. come as a fully-assembled ready-to-race (RTR) package, the X0-1 is equipped with a 1650 Kv TRAXXAS Big Block Brushless motor that is capable of sending this pocket rocket sprinting to 100 mph (87 km/h) in just 2.3 seconds. yes, it can actually hit 100 mph or more, and that translates to insanely fast in radio controlled car terms. other features include a beautiful, aerodynamic car body, four-wheel drive, and a host of upgrades including a slew of blue-anodized parts.

when it comes to furniture, the words ‘World’s Fastest’ hardly come into play, except if your furniture – a couch, in this instant – has an internal combustion engine under the hood, or should i say, under the seat. that’s truly one hot seat that would require you to don a full racing suit, racing shoes, and of course, a helmet when piloting it. especially so when it could hit 101 mph (163.12 km/h). this world record holder for the world’s fastest couch comes complete with a table (and a bowl of fruits to boot), not because of complimenting sake but rather, a necessity to improve its aerodynamic performance. this is one furniture that should compliment Perry Watkins’ world’s fastest dinning table and also betters Chris McIntosh’s leisure motorized recliner chair.

frankly speaking, Radio Controlled model (or some called it Remote Controlled model) is the last thing you would expect to have a ‘world’s fastest’ tag to it but in this case, this is exactly what this DIY RC car has achieved. meet Schumacher Mi3, touted to achieve a shattering 161.76 mph (about 260 km/h) top speed and is hence, crowned the world’s fastest RC car. if i were you, i’d stand way clear when this baby is streaking around. i used to pilot a RC truck that made 60 km/h and i already found it hard to keep it in control, hence at 260 km/h, the Mi3 just made it into the insane territory.

from the guy who gives you the world’s smallest car (Wind-up) and the world’s lowest car (Flatmobile), comes the world’s fastest furniture: a dining table set up, aptly dubbed the ‘Fast Food‘. Perry Watkins is no strange in creating weird vehicle and this time round, his Fast Food has achieved the world record speed of 113.8 mph. at a glance, this dining table set up looks to be just another, well, dining table set up for six complete with champagne, potatoes, gravy and roast chicken to boot – all of which are fake items, of course. however, lurking underneath this tantalizing set-up is a 3.5-liter Rover V8 engine cannibalized from a Reliant Scimitar Sabre and a nitrous oxide (NOS) injection system that is good for a century sprint in just four seconds.
