When it comes to realism in technology, nitro RC cars, trucks and buggies that use nitro fuel have a definite edge over those with electric power plants. Nothing else compares to driving nitro fuel RC cars that have a real piston-pounding, fuel-burning, internal combustion engine under the body.
In hobby RC car descriptions, “nitro fuel” (also called “glow fuel”) is sometimes used interchangeably with “gas,” but these fuels are not the same. Nitro RC engines require nitro fuel, a special blend of methanol, nitromethane, and protective lubricants, available pre-mixed from hobby retailers. Special fuel needs aside, nitro-powered RC model cars still capture the sights and sounds of real, full-size racing. The engines roar powerfully...exhaust vapors trail your machine...and the speeds are unbelievable!
There’s a huge variety of nitro RC car and truck types to choose from: stadium trucks, monster trucks, buggies, truggies, and more, from brands including Losi®, Team Losi Racing®, and Kyosho®. You’ll need some special pit equipment to run them, but most items are one-time purchases from Tower Hobbies® that you can use to operate any number of nitro RC models.
