Should I Get A Nitro Or Electric R/C Car?

This is one of the most important questions that most beginners over look. Nitro powered cars are a lot faster and required more driving skill to control. We think nitro radio controlled cars are a lot more fun and realistic but there is also more Maintenance required because of the nitro engine. The user will need to be prepared to learn and understand the model and mechanics of basic hobby engines. If you have patience and are looking for a hobby instead of a toy we would recommend a nitro car.

Electric powered cars are much simpler and require less maintenance than nitro. The user simply charges the batteries and runs the car. Very little adjusting is needed. Recommended for beginners who just want to get the model out and use it straight away.
