About RC Trucks And Remote Control Monster Truck
 

The Best Remote Control Truck

For beginners, the best remote control truck would be a 1/10 scale, ready to run, 2 wheel drive electric powered truck. This is the type of remote control truck that is easy to build and maintain, ideal for newcomers to the hobby.

Once you have mastered the speed and capability of a beginner truck, the next level would be to try 1/8 scale electric powered 4x4 monster trucks. There is now a slight increase in technical design, from a 2 wheel drive to a 4 wheel drive transmission.

What next? Electric rc trucks are a lot of fun, but top speeds using a stock motor would be in the 14 - 20 mph range. With modified motors, speeds of 30 mph can be reached.

But if you want to go fast, I mean really fast, then there is no substitute for a gas powered remote control truck. The best would be to start of with rc rtr nitro stadium trucks. These are usually the 1/10 scale, 2 wheel drive nitro trucks with .12 - .15 size gas engines. Speeds can be as mild as 25 mph, or be as fast as 50+ mph!

Then there are the ultimate models, the gas powered 4x4 remote control monster trucks. These are 1/8 scale gas powered machines with twice the power of 1/10 scale nitro stadium trucks. Four wheel drive and 8 oil filled shock absorbers help control the power.

Have fun!
