Getting The Right RC Car For You

By: Johnbrennan
For some people, when they hear conversations about the unique radio controlled nitro high power car, they immediately think about memories of great summer afternoons at the race track enjoying the excitement of the event.

Maybe you can even close your eyes and smell the pungent exhaust and hear the din of the screaming crowd cheering. Cheering on their favorite racer as the drivers peel away from the starting line amidst clouds of blue smoke from their tires.

So, if you love the feeling you get from that kind of an experience, but can't make it down to the raceway on a regular basis, then maybe a nitro high power car is for you. With the miniature version, you can capture some of the excitement that comes from being there.

The RC high power car runs on nitro. It does not have to be a dragster style RC car either, because all RC nitro cars use the fuel. Interestingly, the nitro radio controlled cars don't have a way of getting lubrication through the engine like the real cars do, so the nitro fuel for these mini racers have a small amount of castor oil added to the fuel mix to help keep the small engines from becoming overheated and ultimately from being damaged.

Many people wonder what the real difference is between RC electric cars and the nitro high power car models and how they should decide which type to purchase.

One of the main advantages of the nitro cars is that they are able to reach and maintain a higher speed for a longer period of time and you can quickly and easily refill a nitro fueled car and get it back on the road immediately. With RC electric cars, you have to recharge the battery before it can run again, or you have to invest in costly additional battery packs.

Nitro cars are fast. Must faster than electric cars and they can maintain their speed for longer. They also only need to be refuelled and they are back on the road. RC electric cars are powered by batteries so unless you are prepared to buy additional battery packs you won't be able to race all day.

Another consideration is noise. The high power car that is nitro powered is also quite noisy in addition to having to deal with the exhaust issues. With this in mind, these powerful little racers are not intended to be raced indoors.
