By popular demand we are now stocking a range of unbuilt nitro radio controlled car kits for those who enjoy building models as much as using them! Forget lego etc, these self build kits provide hours of fun and when they are finished they are actually fun to use!
For the hours of use and enjoyment you will get from first building and then racing them these kits are amazing value for money. If you are new to nitro RC cars then buying a self build kit is a great way to learn about the hobby and see how they work before going out and racing them. We sell some of these models to schools as they are educational and a great introduction to mechanics and engineering. There is no other product on the market that gives such a complete all in the box kit like this.
Unlike other self build kits on the market that only include the basic chassis and none of the electronics etc, these kits include everything needed to complete and even the tools you need to build them! SH 18 engine, pistol type radio equipment, grease, oil etc - everything is there. Construction will take around 8 - 12 hours on average and is recommended for ages 14+.
The most important thing with a self build kit is the instruction manual. With these kits the manual has been given a lot of attention to ensure a smooth construction. This is a not a few pages pamphlet like with some other kits, this is a thick manual that was designed and written in the U.K. to make sure nothing was lost in translation at the factory. Construction is broken down into many stages with each corresponding stage's parts packaged separately as pictured above. The steps are clearly shown using CAD 3D images with every part labeled individually. The end result is the Cyclone racing car. A seriously quick model that features a strong alloy chassis, shaft driven 4WD system, oil filled shocks, front and rear differentials and sealed radio tray.
The Cyclone is powered by a size 18 engine that rockets the model to over 40mph. The car can be upgraded with a range of performance hop ups available from our site and you can even fit a two speed gearbox to make it even quicker!
Once you have built your model you can go and race it with the 2.4GHz radio equipment. 2.4GHz gives you longer range, better reliability and also allows you to race your car without any interference from fellow racers!

Citation from description: "The car can be upgraded with a range of performance hop ups available from our site and you can even fit a two speed gearbox to make it even quicker!" My question is, which gearbox may fit for this model?

Great productBy Gar October 12, 2020
I use to have RTR nitro cars when I was younger and wanted to get back into it however I decided that I'm going to build a kit one instead.
Upon receiving the product every thing that is required to make one is there except fuel and batteries so advisable to get some if you don't already have these.
outherwise it looks good quality for the money you pay.
I did have to chase up the delivery by contacting them through there Facebook page but customer service was spot on and I didn't mind it being slightly later than anticipated due to the current situation going on .
I'm looking forward to getting it built and running tho with a few tweaks here and there that I learned when I use to run them.
bring back them slightly younger days
PerfectBy Bradley June 05, 2020
I love everything about this car I remember having this car as a child and can’t wait to rebuild and bring back them great memories

È arrivato intatto mi piace molto no ho aspettato per aprirlo e incominciare ad armarlo ho tardato più o meno due giorni non mancava neanche un pezzo era tutta completa e anche se le istruzioni sono in inglese vengono molto dettagliate mille grazie ancora nitrotek seguire comprando vi raccomando
ExcellentBy Pat January 22, 2015
Excellent car Excellent price Excellent model in general. Took longer than 14hrs to build but thoroughly enjoyed the process. Very very fast.Recommend it to anyone.. this is my 1st nitro car and will not be my last. Looking into a brushless electric car next. I've already upgraded to an electric starter that is much easier and bought a rechargeable glow plug.
