Can you confirm where the Facebook pictures are from?
I'm interested in building the same, I have a couple of working ghost traps, and have done lots of RC work.
I did find the images on the Facebook page did not match the images in the trailer.
The Rims seemed right, but the tires are ribbed in the trailer. I don't think it's because they are spinning so fast, but I could be wrong.
I plan to post the build here, but am at a standstill trying to figure out the tires and chassis. From the picture and original ghost trap measurements, the wheel base is approx 8" or 180mm, the wheels have a 3.5" or 80mm hub and are about 6" or 150mm in dia. For the life of me, I cant find ribbed tires that match those sizes.
Any hints would be great.

RC cars enjoy a high power-to-weight ratio and a relatively small mass allowing them to keep up or out perform full-scale cars at times. The RC10 that was used in the Clint Eastwood film "The Dead Pool" regularly out-paced the the stunt cars while filming on streets in San Francisco. And that was 35 years ago.
As far as the highly modified and customized car/RTV in the trailer....it sure looks fast enough to me
