The Different Kinds of RC Trucks

By Javed Khan Subscribe to RSS | March 10th 2012 | Views:

You might get overwhelmed by so many remoter controlled or RC trucks that are available in various toy shops or stores. If you are planning to own one, it is better that you know what these kinds are so you can enjoy it the it’s fullest. Once you have familiarized yourself with them, you can be a certified RC enthusiast.

There is a wide selection of these radio controlled vehicles. You can choose from a hauling cargo or monster truck . There are also what we call stadium trucks that are ideal for hardcore RC enthusiasts. These remote controlled stadium trucks are what we often refer to as “in between” monster and buggies. In other words, these are as durable as that of a monster truck and as fast as that of buggies.

A lot of the stadium trucks that are available in the market today are 2-wheel drive. You can also choose between an electric and gas powered version. The electric version of a stadium truck can actually run with a speed of up to 15 mph. On the other hand, the gas powered ones can go as fast as 35 mph. Buggies and stadium trucks are somewhat similar in many aspects. Although buggies are the more popular one. The suspension of stadium trucks can provide them an increasing off-road agility.

Another interesting features of stadium trucks is that they can be maneuvered over tough terrain in a soother manner than buggies. The majority of stadium trucks are 1/10 scale. But you have to remember that they are mainly 2 wheel drive.

The buggies version or what sometimes call as off road buggies are also 2 wheel drive. The electric type can reach 30 mph. The nitro buggies , on one hand, can run two times faster that the electric version. If you just want to run with the speed of around 30 mph, you can always opt for the electric type and you can still enjoy it. You might not be able to handle the nitro if it is your first time to control RC trucks.

Buggies are mostly off road but they can also be driven on road. The electric buggies are typically 1/10 scale while their nitro counterparts are 1/8 scale. Buggies are normally expensive but you can still find inexpensive models around. They can run fast and don’t need too much maintenance. These RC trucks can also do well in rough terrains.

You might have already noticed that there are electric and gas powered RC trucks. If you want to make this a serious hobby, then you have to know the difference between the two. The electric models are mostly recommended for beginners because they are low-maintenance and can be maneuvered easily.

On the other hand, if you have been driving RC trucks for a long time now, you might want to go for the gas powered versions. The primary reason for this is that they run much faster than their electric counterparts. Whatever your choice is, one thing is for sure. You will enjoy both.
