Whether you're nine or ninety, if you love cars and enjoy tinkering with things, you'll get hours of enjoyment and excitement from RC cars. But there are a lot of things involved in getting to the race, and if you're new to RC vehicles and RC racing, you've probably got a lot of questions.
There's a lot to choose from when it come to RC's, and if you're a newcomer, you may need help choosing off and on-road, electric or nitro remote control cars. The more you know about RC cars, the better you'll be able to choose the right vehicle for you.
Most people don't realize just how exciting RC vehicles have become-the hobby quality RC cars made and raced today have can get up to speeds of 60 mph and feature suspension systems that can be tuned just like a real car. Perhaps the most exciting part is the wide variety of types of RC vehicles: you can drive a race car, run a monster truck on dirt tracks or even fly a plane!
Because of this, though, you should consider just what you plan to use your RC for before you decide to buy. On-road or racing cars are made for speed, while off-road vehicles like buggies are mean to take more rugged terrain. Plus, you can choose to buy your RC ready to run out of the box or as a kit to build it yourself. These and many other aspects are important to know before you buy your first RC.
There are RC cars and trucks for every kind of driver: nitro engines for the speed demon, reliable ready to run electric cars for touring, and for the advanced, even planes to fly. The electric cars run quietly and so are better suited to run right in your neighborhood, while the nitro motors give you the real feel of the racetrack. What you buy should depend on your experience-choose your RC according to your experience to avoid frustration later on.
Something to keep in mind from the outset is that RC vehicles are a high-end hobby, and can get quite expensive. If you plan to race your car, there are additional costs that come with competition. But if you're prepared for the cost, and if you make your purchases carefully, you'll be rewarded with an amazing new hobby whose rewards certainly outweigh the cost. These are the decisions that need to be made before you buy:
o Do you want a ready to run car or do you want build your own?
o Do you want an on-road or an off-road RC vehicle?
o Which is right for you- a nitro or an electric RC?
o What type of RC vehicle do you want- and what size?
No matter what you decide, if you keep your own experience and commitment level in mind, you'll be certain to get the car that's right for you.
Whether you race them or just tinker with their engines, RC cars are a great hobby for kids of all ages. Though it might seem overwhelming at first, you'll find that the most you work on your car and the more times you race, the more fun and exciting this hobby can be!
The Race Is On!
