Best remote control cars

What to consider

There are a few acronyms you should know before you shop. RC is (you guessed it!) “Remote control” and “RTR” stands for “ready to run” which means you don’t need any extra parts to start your engine. There is also a “scale” listed in the description, such as 1:10 or 1:12, a ratio that represents the scale of the RC truck to the actual full size vehicle. Most RC trucks have a gun-type remote control, as opposed to a two button remote that comes with some remote control cars.

In terms of styling, it’s everything from high-speed off-road buggies that go at 38 mph to a “scale and trail crawler” Land Rover Defender with tons of muscle but peaking at 10 mph. As mentioned above, there are R / C trucks for different skill levels from beginner to advanced hobby level options. If you’re buying a top-of-the-line model, you’ll definitely want to make sure that spares and upgrades are easy to obtain.
