Basic Tips to Help You Pick the Right RC Car

This article contains some basic tips to help you purchase an RC car that has the right power source and terrain capability.

RC models are powered by gas or electric. With gas driver RC for instance, in the case of nitro cars, they are powered by nitromethane and fueled up by lubricant. With this type of model, you will be impressed by the maximum speed and refueling is easy as well. They are known for the long running time which makes them a better choice than electric ones. On the other hand, the combustion period that takes time before it starts running causes some degree of smoke and noise release.

Electric models are easier to maintain as they are powered by batteries that need to be recharged before a run. For some people, recharging time is a disadvantage, so you may want to consider this aspect of the electric cars. As compared with gas RC, these cars are pretty much lighter, fast-to-react and are highly responsive to the controller's moves. Many consumers love electric models for these reasons but remain uncertain due to the lesser running time that it offers.

Moving on to the car's terrain capability, the hobby shops generally sell two kinds of RC models that run on specific grounds. Paved track racing definitely calls for the first type of RC model called road RC cars, while non-paved track racing needs a particular type of model that is called the off-road RC models. Keep in mind that these cars have specific terrain capabilities and only perform the best on the terrain that they are specially designed to race. With these details in mind, you will be in a better position to pick the right model.
