Nitrotek were the first to bring you the complete all in one box Nitro RC kit and these have been one of our most popular items since the day we introduced them. To build on this success we are now adding some electric self build kits to our range. The model here is our self build Raptor Truggy These RC kits are perfect 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 electric 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. To enhance the racing experience, the model comes with a 2.4GHz transmitter which enables you to have longer range, better reliability and also you are able to race your car without any interference from other racers. We sell some self builld 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.

  1. Great product.

    By Nick October 02, 2014

    I am completely new to Remote Control Cars, as I've not had one since I was a child. I was after the challenge of building my own and this certainly met that.
    The information I read from this website suggested that novices could build it, although would recommend getting advice from someone in the know and I have to say, I'm glad I have someone in the family that I could go to for help. I'm not saying that this product is difficult to build, but for someone who's not overly practically minded, I certainly found it a challenge.
    To begin with, the instructions were easy to follow, but did get progressively more complicated as it went on and I even resorted to sending Nitrotek an email asking for clarification, which I have to say they responded to very well.
    I guess some aspects of the build could have been done in a slightly different order to the instructions as towards the end was fiddly, with components in the way. If I buy another one in the future, I will certainly re-think how the motor is positioned before securing the rear axle etc, but with a bit of a rejig at the end, it all fitted together and I thoroughly enjoyed building this.
    Its a great little car, goes well and the components are strong enough for my use.
    I'd deffinitely recommend this to others.

  2. pardait !

    il est facile a monter même si la notice est en anglais mais il faudrait qu'il soit en couleur
    pour le niveau du prix il est mieux que l'autre version plus rapide mais bon je trouve sa largement suffisant pour s'amuser
