Feel the Thrill of Racing RC Trucks

Posted by rchobbiesoutlet on November 5th, 2014

If you've ever been to a monster truck rally or happened to catch one on TV, there is no denying the attraction, thrill and excitement these rock-climbing, obstacle-crushing trucks can bring. Fortunately, you don't have to own a full-sized, expensive, and physically demanding monster truck just so you can enjoy the thrill of powering over different obstacles and racing across a field or track. With radio-controlled trucks, you can feel the thrill of racing a truck without risking danger to yourself and without the very large investment and ongoing expense of an actual truck.

RC trucks come in a wide variety of types and models to suit different interests and needs. Most commonly, RC trucks are driven and raced in fields and dirt tracks, although they can also be used on smooth surfaces. A more specialized type of RC truck is a rock crawler which is used to climb up hills and over obstacles courses. RC trucks also come with either nitro/gas engines or electric motors. RC trucks with Nitro gas engines offer the realism of the noise and smoke of a real engine, and can be run as long as you like, by just adding fuel. Electric powered RC trucks are quiet, easier to operate, can be used indoor and outdoor, and come with a reverse capability. For beginners, if you are not mechanically inclined, it may be advisable to start with an electric RC truck as these are easier to operate and maintain. However, you normally will want several batteries for more playtime. If you are looking for higher speeds, you will want to consider a brushless electric RC truck versus a RC truck with a brushed motor.

RC trucks are generally more rugged than cars or buggies, and can thus absorb more abuse, and with their higher ground clearance, are better for off-road racing. If you expect to do most of your driving off-road, then a RC truck may be your best choice. Beginners will also benefit from electric or nitro gas powered units that come pre-assembled and ready to go, straight out of the box.

For many beginners, it makes more sense to look for a lower priced, good quality, hobby-grade RC truck as these provide much better value and provide you with an opportunity to gain experience. Once you are more experienced, you are in a much better position to determine if you want to make a much larger investment in a high-end brand name product, and you will be more knowledgeable about what features you want. These high-end RC Trucks will provide more features and more customization opportunities, to build your ultimate truck.

RC hobbies can get expensive, especially when investing in high-end units. Stay within your budget and get hobby-grade quality for your RC model by choosing a supplier that provides high-quality models suitable for all hobbyists. This way, you are guaranteed a good-quality truck at affordable prices that won't go over your budget. Reserve your extra budget for when you are ready to splurge on higher end models.
