Some Tips on your RC Nitro Cars Purchase

By Javed Khan Subscribe to RSS | March 15th 2012 | Views:

Because of the ambient popularity of RC nitro cars among all age groups (young children and adults often find themselves hooked to these little monsters), many toy companies have been releasing their own versions of the powerful toy that comes in a very wide range of pricesthat is able to fit every budget. The RC nitro cars popularity may be attributed to its realistic looks, speeds that go to over and beyond 50 miles per hour (which is the speed you can get when driving a real car), and its ability to be customized according to an owner’s specifications. However, there are various things that a first time buyer must take into account before making his first purchase.

First and foremost is the car’s size. There are currently two popular sizes among enthusiasts: the 1/8 and the 1/10 scale. The 1/8 scale is the larger choice and comes standard with a 2 or 3 automatic speed transmission, while the 1/10 scale is considered to be the industry standard for people who wish to do on-road racing. The next thing to consider when making a purchase is the type of RC nitro cars. The most popular choice for this line of RC cars is the one intended for on-road use. The off-road type is popular among those who wish to use the car for its ability to be run on difficult and uneven surfaces.

Note that RC nitro cars engines come in the popular 2-stroke and the 4-stroke versions. One of the main differences between these two engines is that the 2-stroke version requires a fuel oil mixture for fuel while the 4-stroke version can run on straight fuel. However, the 2-stroke version is able to produce higher rotations per minute and is therefore more suitable for racing. The 4-stroke motor version on the other hand has more power and torque making it more suitable for off-road usage.

Like its electric counterpart, RC nitro cars also come in ready to run boxes, or build it yourself kits, the main difference being that you will be able to save time with a ready to run box, or save money with buying a build it yourself kit. On the upside however, building your own car from a kit will help familiarize you with the required maintenance that you will need to do in the future. If you choose to build your car manually, don’t expect to be able to finish it in one go. Expect to take time and to avoid mistakes, always read the instructions sheet that comes with the kit carefully and thoroughly.Make sure to work in a clean area with good lighting and remember to keep the parts and tools separated in an orderly manner.

Whether you want to use your car for racing or you simply want to enjoy a leisure afternoon playing with it by yourself, this toy car will surely give you a great amount of fun that you will otherwise not be able to experience with its electric powered counterpart.
