    How long do you think it took them to make that? These guys did the same thing in 4 weeks but with a really crappy car and mostly off the shelf parts.

    Their other video gives instructions on how to build your own. Won’t be long until kids are rolling into their science fair with a remote controlled car. Wonder if they need a license to iphone control a car.

    Why would it be a Mercedes and not, say, a Dodge? I thought that bit was a bit random!

    Although Dodge minivans aren’t the greatest lookers out there, I must say that the Dodge Ram Van and its Mercedes/Dodge successor, the Sprinter, are the most awesome vans out there, if you are moving things, or on tour with your band..

    I guess for me the question is – why did they use a van at all, and not some other sort of car? Potential commercial use?

    All thats missing is an angry bear in the driver’s seat.

    Then it would be perfect.

    James Bond had one of those things years before Dr. Horrible. Also, the cell phone doubled as a taser.

    I guess it’s not a Mercedes, because they’re awfully expensive. Dodges come rather affordable in comparison.
