I'm pretty sure rocket motors and fireworks and other pyrotechnics have been duct-taped to R/C cars since kids have had access to both items. And I'm sure a good, if possibly finger-losing time was had by all. Even so, it's still great to see what an 18lb-thrust G-class rocket motor does for a remote-control Corvette.

The folks at High Tech Corvette, who made the video, were thoughtful enough to put in some slow-motion parts, so you can really see how amazing it looks launching, right before it whips around out of control like a giant invisible toddler is flinging it around in a tantrum.

Make sure to watch the last run. It's worth it.
