RC trucks are one of the most popular vehicle categories under RC models. Whether it is a construction truck, heavy duty truck or monster truck, these vehicles have always fascinated us, and encapsulating that feeling within a smaller and more manageable package make RC trucks a huge hit. Coming in a variety of styles, you do not have to be a RC model pro to handle these models; in fact ready to use RC trucks can be used by complete novices as well.
Just like any other RC model, RC trucks are also available in both battery powered and gas fuel powered versions. Both of these models have their own pros and cons. On one hand, electricity powered RC trucks are very easy to maintain and drive, they are also much cheaper. But, they don't give you much power diminishing the realistic feel a little. Apart from that, being light-weight, they also entail the risk of tumbling down while maneuvering steep terrain.
On the other hand, the gas engine powered RC trucks don't have any such problems. These models are perfect for people who want a tough vehicle that can endure steep terrains and dusty areas. If you can easily devote the extra time and effort that is required to maintain them, then these models are right for you. But gas powered RC trucks are generally a little costlier than their electric counterparts and the cost of the fuel is also a big consideration. Apart from these problems, gas powered RC trucks are best for those who love the power and strength of the real version of the vehicles.
