Tomick, u may be able to provide some info on this matter..
How fast is this thing? What speed does it put out?

I have a another gp car with a 2 speed trans mission and a 1.5 engine,
In relation to that, will it be faster? Or what...

The top speed of the standard RB7 racer is about 30mph (47k/mh)

The two-speed gearbox will increase its top speed to about 37mph (60km/h) and will provide faster acceleration and less stress of the engine.

I see..

My other car is a kyosho pureten alpha 1/10 scale with a gx 15 engine
By today's standards it is vintage I'm sure.

Roughly? If the rb7 is tuned to optimal?
Any idea on how fast it may be?

Scale speed is a measure of how fast the RC vehicle goes in relation to the full size model.

A simplified way of looking at it: A 1:7 scale RC would go about 1/7th the speed of the full scale vehicle it's modelled after. Therefore in relation to our RB7 (depending on car set up), an actual speed of around 30mph and a scale speed of around 200mph.

R/C car set-up determines the speed and handling of an nitro R/C car, such as how the engine is tuned, ambient conditions, the % of nitro within fuel, gearing, glowplug type, tyre selection, suspension settings, track surface type and if it has a two (or three) speed gearbox or not.

The addition of the two-speed gearbox will increase the top speed and acceleration.

i would imagine this thing would fly, literally.
it would be an awesome sight in any sense, not to mention the sound.

none of mine are going to turn a wheel in nitro guise, but may see the light in a brushless form. one thing for certain is it will run heaps of front wing..lol.

gearing would have some bearing on top end but going by the promo clip just seeing it running and cornering will turn heads. a DRS option would be interesting as well as the working rain lights.
