Radio Controlled Trucks - Tough, Durable and Reliable

Posted by rchobbiesoutlet on January 7th, 2015

Are you ready to get in on the exhilarating sport of racing, crawling, and bashing RC trucks? Then it’s time you buy your first remote-controlled truck online. There are RC trucks for every kind of player—nitro engines for drivers who like the realistic smoke and noise of the nitro engine, and ready-to-run electric trucks for those who like it quieter,or want to race inside. No matter what you choose, you should make sure that your truck is tough, durable, and reliable. You want a robust 4WD monster truck that is designed for all-terrain off-roading—something that’s able to plow through dirt, the track, the snow and the grass.

Ready-to-Run RC Trucks

If you are an RC sport beginner, it is more practical to buy a hobby grade, ready-to-run (RTR) truck. It will arrive pre-assembled so you can get started right away without spending too much cash. The standard grade engines and radios available in RTR truck kits are more than enough to provide you with a great racing experience. You can upgrade your radio, your RC engine, or your accessories to influence performance as you get deeper into the sport.

Nitro or Electric?

Nitro and Electric RC trucks both have their pros and cons. Nitro gas engines provide you with the realist smoke and noise of a real engine, and you can run as long as you like by simply adding more fuel to the tank. Electric RC trucks are quiet, simpler to operate and maintain, can be used indoors, and ability to drive in reverse in standard. However, your playtime with electric RC is limited the capacity of your batteries. For speeds that are comparable to nitro trucks, you should consider brushless electric trucks equipped with LIPO batteries.

For beginners, or if you are not mechanically inclined, running an electric RC truck is often easier.

If you prefer to buy nitro RC trucks, you should have some mechanical aptitude, as you will need to break-in the engine, and tune the engine, following the instructions that come with the RC truck.

Whichever way you go, you will need to buy your first hobby class RC truck from a reputable retailer who can help you choose the most suitable truck for your requirements. The seller should also provide reliable customer support should you need help. You want a store with a good inventory of different hobby class RC trucks that you can choose from, as well as a large inventory of spare parts.

Buying a remote control monster truck is a fun way to get into the RC sport. You’ll find the perfect RC truck online from Canada’s best RC hobby stores. Get started now and you'll soon become a serious RC track competitor.
