The advantage that electric radio control cars have over gas powered and nitro RC cars is that they can achieve torque immediately. But the gas and nitro radio controlled cars have to get speed and this will takes a little longer as engine has to heat up and clutch has to engage. In the end, the hobbyist has to decide the right kind of radio control cars for him/her. Not only is the cost of fuel, but there are many other factors to be considered before choosing the preferred radio control cars. It will also depend on the body of the car. The off road radio control cars models have a suspension that resembles those of real large sized vehicles. This suspension will ensure that they run on almost any form of terrain.
The on road radio control cars are meant to be used on pavements. The instruments that are implemented in on road radio control cars including the nitro RC cars are precision tuning for speed. While choosing the type of RC car, the decision must be based on whether the running will be done on terrain or on pavement surface.
Before getting involved into the competitive racing, the radio control cars racing hobbyist needs to know what he/she is getting into. One of the best ways to start off is by joining a radio control cars racing club. At such clubs, information is shared about the various RC cars. You will also get to see various radio control cars in action and up close. In case you are lucky enough, you may even get the chance to drive one of these RC cars.
