Can your Tyco do this?

Dr. James Brighton from Cranfield University has transformed the Hummer H3 into a remote controlled vehicle. Using the real car (right-hand drive H3) instead of downscaled version, this took about a month to be transformed. As Dr. James says "The results are clear – all controllers will be amazed by the handling ability – the best any radio controlled vehicle has had to date. The vehicle is capable of climbing a 407mm vertical wall, traverse a 40% side slope and operate in up to 610mm of water.
