Choose From A Wide Variety Of Off Road RC Trucks To Play In
Are you tired of driving your cars only on the road? Are you
looking to get a little bit dirty? Or even a lot dirty? If you
need a change from RC street racing, it is time to go off-road
with the extreme off-road RC trucks. With a large variety of RC
trucks to choose from, there is something for everybody, and
every skill level.
Why an RC Truck?
If you have experience with RC cars, you might be thinking,
why do I need an RC truck? What is wrong with my RC car? Well if
you currently drive a streetcar, you do not know what you are
missing. With a remote control truck, you can live out all your 4
x 4 dreams. Depending on the type of truck you get, you can take
your truck in the dirt, in the mud, through snow and ice and even
drive it through streams and puddles!
Get wet and dirty with extreme RC Trucks! The types of trucks
that you can buy range quite dramatically. The most popular types
of RC trucks are:
1) Monster trucks
2) Sport trucks
3) Suburban style
5) Ford styles
You can get RC trucks in almost any make; however, the Hummer
styles have become quite popular as well as the Ford styles. This
is likely due to their reputation as being rough and tough
Can You Race RC Trucks?
RC trucks are not only for taking off-road. You can experience
the speed and thrill of the race by racing your trucks as well.
There is a whole segment of Radio Control trucks that are mean
solely for racing. These trucks are generally built with a
smaller body and are designed to be lightweight so that they can
go faster. In order to race off-road trucks successfully you need
the perfect combination of a fast truck, a rugged truck, and a
You can race off-road trucks on specially designed dirt
racetracks with obstacles and jumps. Some tracks are especially
designed with ramps, mud puddles and obstacles that you need to
race through and avoid all together.
Other racetracks are built the same as RC car tracks. These
courses are built for speed and are carried out on pavement or
some other track like surface.
What Is The Best Type Of RC Off Road Truck?
There are many different types of off road truck, and the best
kind depends on what you are looking for. The first thing that
you need to determine is if you are looking for an electric or
nitro vehicle. The electric trucks are typically less expensive;
however, they are not usually as fast or as rugged as their
gas-powered counterparts are.
A good quality off road 4x4 car is the Traxxas Stampede. This
is an extra tough and powerful truck. The Stampede is known as
the pit-bull of trucks because it is the meanest and toughest
around. With its huge tires and high clearance, this truck can
handle all types of terrain. Because of the quality, rugged
construction, this truck is especially for first time RC truck
owners. First time drivers can be especially tough on a truck as
they learn how to manage their vehicles. You do not have to worry
about breaking a Traxxas Stampede truck easily. The truck comes
with a fully assembled chassis, a ball bearing equipped engine
with a recoil starter. The truck comes ready to run, just paint
whichever color you choose, add the decals and you are ready to
The T-Maxx is another great 4 x 4 truck. This truck is built
for racing with 60 percent more horsepower than you can find from
other racing engines. This truck is nice and lightweight, which
is the perfect formula for off-road truck racing. Every good
racer knows that you need more power and less weight in order to
achieve faster speeds and quick acceleration. With the T-Maxx
truck, you achieve top speeds in excess of 40 miles per hour, and
do wheelies on demand. This is the perfect truck for
The Final Word
There are many different types of off-road extreme RC trucks.
The type of truck that you choose will depend on what you are
looking for, and what your budget allows. If you are looking at
an electric truck, the prices will start around $100. The prices
on these trucks increase as you add features, and nitro-fueled
trucks are more expensive as well. No matter what type of off
road RC you choose, you are sure to have fun feeling like a kid
again, driving it through the mud, snow, and taking it off dirt
jumps. Whether you are a professional or a hobbyist, the name of
the game is to have fun.
