Why you should buy new Petrol Remote Control Cars

October 14, 2008

One of the great things about having a remote control car hobby is that there is such a massive selection of cars, trucks, helicopters and buggies available. And even a beginner can find themselves a race ready remote control car for very little money.

However, when looking for new petrol remote control cars there are a number of things which you need to be on the lookout for so that you don’t end up having your fun spoiled.

Tip 1
Make sure and do your research. Don’t just go for the cheapest RC car which you see, even if it looks like it is a real bargain. Normally if the price on something new, or used, is too good to be true then that means it is too good to be true. Basically, it’s likely to be poorly made so won’t stand up to the ‘abuse’ it will be getting, especially if you are a beginner.

Tip 2
Once you have done your research on forums, dealer websites etc then make sure and get the best price. All you need to do is type in the make and model into Google and include terms like Cheap, Cheapest, special offer etc along with your search term.

For example type in:

cheapest rc1 petrol rc car

cheap petrol rc1 remote control car

Tip 3
When you get your new rc car you must make sure that all the relevant parts are in place and everything works ok. Take it out for a spin round down your local road. You don’t need to drive it very far to know whether everything is working ok or not. Best to run it for at least a couple of minutes just to test all the mechanical and petrol related components.


The bottom line is that playing around with petrol rc cars can be an expensive hobby and if you are just starting out then you need to take your time. There are lots of forums online where fellow enthuasists are more than happy to offer advice.
