If you want low-cost, low-noise, and easy-to-run electric remote-control vehicles, you may want to check out Tower Hobbies®. If you’re looking for the most realistic and fast RC cars and trucks money can buy, on the other hand, you’ve come to the right place! In the RC hobby world, the term “gas” often describes any model equipped with a fuel-burning engine. But not all model engines burn the same type of fuel. Nitro RC Cars run on a special hobby fuel (a blend of methanol, nitromethane, and lubricants). Similar to full-size automobiles, traditional gas powered RC cars run on gasoline mixed with motor oil. They may not be the best RC cars for beginners, but the realistic operation, outrageous power, authentic sound, and insane acceleration of genuine gas-powered RC cars and trucks is exactly what many experienced racers crave. Even the size is extreme — true gas-powered RC race cars usually run around 1/5 scale or larger, such as the Losi® 5IVE-T®, and can hit speeds well over 50 mph. And they’re not necessarily any more difficult to get on the track than nitro RC or electric RC vehicles. Bind-N-Drive® models, for example, arrive fully assembled and just need to be bound to a compatible radio transmitter. Gas-powered remote-control cars provide the ultimate in realistic racing fun. Even the smell mimics real racing!
