Electric remote control cars and trucks are still the most popular choice for beginners of the RC car hobby.

The advantages of electric remote control cars and trucks are simple:

  • fast speed – up to 60 mph
  • quiet – MUCH quieter than nitro
  • easy to afford – lower prices than gas remote control cars
  • easy to maintain – EASIER than the nitro engine
  • not as messy as nitro
  • can run indoor

Electric remote control cars and trucks are equipped with a rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium battery pack. These batteries give you runtimes of 5-15 minutes depending on the type of motor. If you decide to purchase electric remote control cars and trucks, we recommend you to purchase several battery packs (at least two packs) and a battery charger (peak detection type) so you have a longer run time for your electric RC car. Battery recharging typically takes 15-30 minutes for electric remote control cars and trucks.
