FORT WORTH, Texas, June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- RadioShack Corporation has introduced a limited-edition line of remote control cars based on the main characters from Disney*Pixar's "Cars," the new Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios blockbuster summer feature film. "Cars" presents the tale of Lightning McQueen, a hot shot rookie race car who gets lost in Radiator Springs in Carburetor County. Lovable characters from the movie, including Lightning McQueen, Sally, Mater, and Ramone are represented by three collectible ZipZaps 1:64 scale micro RCs and two 1:16 scale RCs.
Lightning McQueen, Sally, and Mater ZipZaps micro RCs come pre-assembled with working headlights and quick-charge in about one minute, allowing almost continual racing enjoyment. They include a full-function remote and are the perfect size for on-the-go fun. Each ZipZaps model also comes with a collectable trading card. The two larger scale 1:16 size RCs are patterned after Lightening McQueen and Ramone. These units can reach speeds up to 546 feet per minute. They include an easy-to-use controller with a 65-ft. range and a climbing angle of up to 15 degrees.
