Rc Mini Cars
RC mini cars are one of the smallest varieties of RC cars out there today. Capable of fitting on your palm, your RC mini cars come in as many varieties as their larger cousins. If you are looking for something that can really blow you away but is not as expensive and tedious as a regular RC model, then the RC mini cars are just the thing for you.
These RC mini cars house electric motors only, mainly because you will never find a combustion engine that is smaller than your palm. However, you will never find yourself wanting more power as these little monsters are packed with more power than you can handle. In fact, it will take you some time to get accustomed to the zip and speed that these RC mini cars have.
Before you pick an RC mini car, you need to know of the different varieties there are - and there are many! You can pick on the basis of their size, where you will find a number of types such as 1/52nd scale and 1/64th, which come in the really small category.
The second choice is on the basis of power. You can pick something like the Team Losi Mini-Late Model BND that have high speed motors and oil-filled shockers to generate an impressive straight line speed, or you can go for something smaller and more manageable, such as RC mini cars that are shaped like Mario Karts or other utility cars such as police cars or fire trucks.
Performance is one of the key factors and when it comes to these RC mini cars, you will find plenty of it. They are fast mainly because they are incredibly light. They can hit extremely high speeds and in some cases, even drive up walls or run upside down on your ceiling.
Racing RC mini cars is much more exciting than the bigger ones because most of the models come Ready-to-Run. That means you don't have to worry about taking time out to put them together and can simply pick one out of the box and hit the streets.
On the race track, some of these cars will amaze you. Depending on the quality of the controller you have, these cars zip around on the track, turning in a short circle, moving around like lightning and even spinning around in the same place.
Almost all manufacturers produce RC mini cars and the performance of all these models are almost the same. Sure, there will always be some models that are faster than others, but this is probably one series where an RC mini car, shaped like the Enzo Ferrari, may be slower than one made like a VW Beetle.
If you are going for realism, then RC mini cars are not for you. However, if it is speed, thrill and racing that interests you, you will never find anything better than RC mini cars.
