RC or radio controlled cars have really come a long way since they were introduced in the 1940s. At the time, controlling a vehicle via a remote control was quite a new and exciting thing.
You can choose between electric powered cars, or some of the faster nitro methane powered cars. Nitro cars are typically larger in size and considerably faster than their electric counter parts. Electric powered cars are usually picked by novice drivers and then once they are used to controlling the vehicle via remote control, they might migrate to the larger more powerful models. You can get both electric and nitro powered cars in the off road and street style depending on your preference.
RC cars are classed as either toys or hobby style and the type will determine on how much you pay for it. Hobby class cars are more expensive to buy as well as maintain. The downside to buying the lower cost toy class cars, are they are not built as well as the hobby class and because they are battery powered, they won’t run as long on a charge as a hobby car will on a tank of nitro fuel.
If you’re looking to buy an electric car used, because they are not so expensive, you might be better off buy a new model. However, if you’re looking for a used nitro care, then you can end up saving quite a lot of money since new nitro cars can go for in excess of a 1000 dollars.
