1:5 Scale RC Mk1 Ford Escort Gets an Appropriate Sound Track

Ford Escort RC car

RC vehicles are fun. Very fun. And scale RC vehicles can be even more fun. However the trademark whine of electric motors or buzzing of nitrous engines always take the edge off the realism. The dedicated hobbyists at Headquake decided to do something about that by synchronizing video footage of a 1:5 scale hand built Mk1 Ford Escort RC car with the soundtrack of the real car doing its thing around a rally stage.

The results and production values are fantastic for a YouTube video – helped by the fact it was shot at 60 frames-per-second to allow better synchronization with the audio.
