Best Car Chase EVER

Take these rather famous chase scenes: Steve McQueen in Bullitt, Gene Hackman’s breakneck chase in The French Connection, the great chase from Ronin.  What do they all have in common?  They all pale in comparison to what is easily the best car chase match-up of all time:  Dirty Harry vs. an RC Controlled 1/10th scale Parma International 1963 Chevrolet Corvette.  To put that into scale, it’d be like Tom Cruise fighting a Micro Machine.

Seriously, it happened in 1988’s Dirty Harry entry, The Dead Pool, which also gets points for featuring Guns n’ Roses and Jim Carrey (playing a character that’s basically Axl Rose).  Watch Harry Callahan totally outwit an RC racer right now and know that you will never have a car chase experience as glorious as this again.

    FINALLY! someone recognizes a real sizzling chase when they see one. bullitt was something to gawk at. the sound is what made that chase great, and to envy. but what kills that chase is all the bs shifting in mcqueen’s car. it seemed at times that he was shifting a 7 or 8 speed tranny. really stupid.

    The other chases are nice, but lack something. the final dirty harry movie from the series brings out all the stops, and then some. from beginning to end the little vette entertains and makes you laugh through the whole thing.

    the little vette endures a lot of abuse. i was surprised at the durability of the rc10 buggy. but then again this is a buggy that is the most durable and recognized in r/c history. and, probably the most purchased r/c car. ironically it’s the “toyota” of the r/c buggies out there. strong little car, even in stock form which it was. nothing really modified on the car, besides the electronics. if that isn’t advertisement in itself i don’t know what is.
