Cars are very expensive, we all know that, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream of driving that sweet ride even Vin Diesel wouldn’t resist. Just because something costs a lot doesn’t mean its completely impossible to attain- It just means you need to think bigger, or rather, smaller. RC cars are a thing (yes, a “thing”) and are often times adored as much as the actual vehicles they emulate.

Collectors and car enthusiasts of all kind can agree that it takes a special RC car to set it apart from other poser “car toys”- the real RC cars are the ones that go as fast as their size will allow them. Here are eight RC cars that prove size doesn’t matter. These juniors would make their real life car daddies proud.
