RC Nitro Cars and Trucks
April 25, 2015
Remember how much fun it can be to be a kid? Yeah, those are the days of exploration, toys, loads of running around and riding bikes. It really does not get much easier than when you are a kid. This is where the expression comes from, “oh, to be a kid again.” Well, there is really no way to go back in time and be a kid again, but that certainly does not mean you have to give up everything that is fun and exciting from your childhood. What about rc nitro cars and trucks? These are an excellent way to stay in touch with your childhood, and have a blast as an adult, One you try one out, you are essentially hooked for life.
Do you realize the variety of rc nitro cars and trucks available these days? It really is nothing like ever before. There are also radio controlled helicopters, airplanes, boats, and submarines as well. It all depends on the type of vehicle you prefer playing with. Most people tend to opt for the rc nitro cars and trucks that reach high speeds. If you are not familiar with what these RC vehicles can do, then you are about to realize that they are very advanced toys. Some rc nitro cars and trucks reach speeds over 70 miles per hour. Can you imagine controlling a car the tenth of the size as your car at that speed?
There are both battery-powered and gas operated rc nitro cars and trucks. It all just depends on your preference and what you wish the vehicle to do. If you are looking to race your RC car or truck professionally, then you should seriously consider the gas option. The gas may last longer during a race, and you can refuel with ease. As for battery-operated rc nitro cars and trucks. these typically operate with a battery pack. It varies in size and power, depending on the vehicle. Typically these can be recharged within one to four hours, and they may provide you with around 20 minutes of running time.
The faster your rc nitro car, the quicker the battery pack will burn down. As for the radio receivers or controllers these rc nitro cars and trucks use, they vary depending on what vehicle you purchase. While some are meant to be operated by your thumbs, others have a pistol grip, which is operated by your trigger finger and opposite hand for steering. Neither works better! It all just depends on your preference. You can purchase some rc nitro cars and trucks that come with no receiver. This way you buy the receiver on your own. While many of these are expensive, they are made very top quality, and allow for a lot of fun.
