If you’re still looking for an excuse to buy a remote controlled car, especially after watching that amazing RC Car Chase scene yesterday, look no further than Griffin’s Moto TC Monster.

The Moto TC Monster further expands their TC line, which includes the HELO TC Assault.  However, unlike Griffin’s helicopter, which depends on an infrared dongle to receive its commands, the Moto TC Monster connects directly to your iPhone using Bluetooth.  That’s right.  You can control this remote controlled vehicle with your iPhone.  And best of all there are a variety of ways to drive it.  You can opt for the more traditional virtual steering wheel, throttle, and brake setup.  Alternatively, you can swipe your finger across the screen in accordance to the direction of travel you want the car to go.  Or you can just simply tilt the device.  Lastly, the app includes a track feature, which allows you to program  the truck to run through a series of preset routes, including figure eights, as well as record and store drive plans (ideal for homemade tracks).

The battery life of the Moto TC Monster is about 15 minutes.  It’s compatible with the Phone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch (4th, 3rd generation), iPad 3rd generation, iPad 2, iPad.  The truck itself measures 10.28″ wide by 13.77″ long.

The Griffin Moto TC Monster is available now for $60.
