Excellent!
I lately saw a RC car on a wire going really really fast, but this is the real deal, no strings attached
Do you fly in a helicopter above it or do you have 20km range with your controller to build up speed.

The cars that needs a wire are extremely fast. Around 200mph.
They are called tethered cars.

My car is a mix of drag car and a Bonneville car. It has potentioal to go 150 mph. The power is there, and now it is "just" to get that power down to the wheels without spinning

I used around 600 m of straight asphalt track to breake the record. I stood in the middle, around 250m, and the antenna on the car is very good and also very straight even at max speed. This together with a very good airplane receiver and a good transmitter gave me a range of around 300m radius.

Next year I hope to have an even better receiver (double superheterodyn) and an airplane transmitter. Both from Graupner.
