For the beginner venturing into RC cars for the first time we recommend Electric cars which are often the easiest to use. Nitro RC cars are generally considered a hobby product that need a little understanding however once mastered the nitro RC cars are fantastic.
Brushless Electric is an alternative to Nitro Cars as they have a higher rate of performance to standard brushed motors and with a high performance battery can often out perform nitro cars.
Brushless Cars are also cleaner and quieter due to being electric and there is NO exhaust noise and NO fuel to worry about, just charge and go, definately a more environmentally friendly way to have high speed fun.
Finally the petrol RC cars run on straight petrol and oil from the petrol station but are much bigger than the nitro ones so are the most expensive kind of car, these are also very fast and are suited to the experienced RC user.
