What to choose….. Electric or Nitro ?

Very good question. This is a very important question that most beginners over look!

Nitro powered cars are generally faster than your standard electric cars and can sometimes require more driving skill to control. The downside to Nitro models is there is a lot of maintenance required because of the engine. You 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 something that needs more than just simply charging then Nitro is best for you. Bare in mind that with the new Brushless Electric Motors on Electric cars the speed of some of these is terrific.

Note – Nitro cars generally don’t have a reverse gear, so bare that in mind also. With electric, your in full control forward and reverse.

Electric powered cars are much simpler and require less maintenance than nitro. You can simply charge the batteries and run the car. Very little adjustments are needed. Certainly recommended for beginners who just want to get the model out and use it straight away or if you have restrictions on where you can use the car then electric cars make no noise.

Please remember the RC Electric and Nitro Cars we sell are not toys and should not be used by anyone under the age of 14 without supervision from an adult.
