Owning a car is something most people would wish. Having your own personal car requires constant maintenance which does not usually come cheap. Because of the fact that brand new car models prove to be expensive, not everyone gets the chance to call a car model “theirs.” If being unable to drive behind wheels can bring frustration, maybe being the driver behind the rushing remote controlled car can fill up the frustration.

Who would not recognize the screeching of wheels as it abruptly takes a turn around a corner? Who would not love to watch a car race as different models rush at varying speed? Toy cars can bring out almost the same level of excitement as real cars do when they speed through bumpy surfaces and race against other models of remote controlled cars. Still popular today, remote controlled cars had been continuously developed to fit the rapid advancement in technology.

Remote controlled cars, otherwise known as RC Cars, come in varying models. With the expansion of knowledge and the development of technology comes the improvement of remote controlled cars. Remote controlled cars are available in three types: the electric cars, the truck, and the Nitro RC Cars.

Remote controlled cars can be bought from stores in two ways. There are those which are Ready-to-Run type cars, toy cars already assembled for the buyer. All that is needed is to take it out of the box. But for those who wish to have a feel of how to pull together their RC cars, Assemble-it-yourself hobby cars are also out in the market. This allows customization of your remote controlled cars. With an instruction attached to the product, putting the unassembled parts will not be much of a problem.

Over the years, children and adults alike had developed an interest in Nitro RC cars. Remote controlled cars had spelled e-x-c-i-t-e-m-e-n-t for they can offer bumpy actions whenever they are run around level or uneven ground. Hobby remote controlled cars available in the market are durable which means they can last for a long period of time. They are suitable for both professional and experienced RC car runners and first time owners of remote controlled cars.

But how do these little cars run with just a click on a wireless remote control? Different types of RC cars move with varying reason. Electric cars utilize electric motors and rechargeable batteries such as nickel-cadmium or nickel metal cells. Nitro RC cars, on the other hand, are powered by a fuel known as ‘nitro.’ Nitro is a mixture of nitro methane, methanol and oil. This mixture is the reason why these remote controlled cars dash at an amazing speed.

If you think that electrically powered and Nitro RC cars run slow, think again. The average speed of an RC car reaches up to 65 mph or even more. It can match with the dashing speed of cars parked in the garage. The speed is one of the reasons why more and more people are willing spend a fortune for these amazing little runners.
