What does 1:12 or 1:24 mean?

I just looked it up on Wikipedia for you, this is what I got:

Some commonly raced classes and the types of models that race them are:

1/12 Electric Onroad - Rear wheel Drive Cam Am-bodied cars, Touring cars, oval racers
1/10 Electric Onroad - Touring cars, Can Am-bodied cars, Formula One/Indy cars, oval racers
1/10 Electric Offroad - 2WD trucks, 2WD buggies, 4WD trucks, 4WD buggies, dirt track oval racers
1/10 Nitro Onroad - Touring cars, Can Am-bodied cars, oval racers
1/10 Nitro Offroad - 2WD trucks, 2WD buggies, 4WD trucks, 4WD buggies, dirt track oval racers
1/8 Nitro Onroad - Touring cars, Can Am-bodied cars
1/8 Nitro Offroad - 4WD buggies, 4WD trucks
It should be noted that the fractional number used throughout this article refers to the model's scale in proportion to its full-sized counterpart. Therefore, a 1/10-scale car is one-tenth the size of a real car, though most purpose-built racing models are not built to true scale.

Thank you. I've decided that size doesn't matter. ;)

I'm going for speed and durability.

I got TeamGriffey one for his birthday. NOW I WANT ONE TOO!

We're having a ball with it.
