RC Nitro Powered Vehicles Cost More But Also Brings More Smiles!

Mar 11, 2008
Glow bright, glow long, there is nothing like nitro glow. Nitro powered Remote Control vehicles are strictly for the true hobbyist. They cost more. You must be willing to make a larger commitment of your time toward honing your skills. A real nitro enthusiast would have nothing less. You are getting excited just thinking about the speed. There are a few things you need to know about before spending your hard earned money, running and enjoying the thrill and excitement, and providing the maintenance for your nitro RC cars, trucks, tanks, boats, motorcycles and other radio controlled vehicles. I'm ready to jump so what do I got to do? First comes the Nitro RC Basics. Even if you already own a non-nitro RC model, you need to grasp and hang on to these nitro terms.

One term to get familiar with is Nitro fuel. It is the get up and go juice that powers these babies at break neck speeds. However, one thing to really always keep in mind is that Nitro fuel is highly combustible and flammable. Always handle with care and in an open air environment, not inside your home.

What is a radio controlled car (R/C car)? For many folks, your RC car was really a toy. Sorry but the truth of the matter is you have been playing with a toy grade remote control car. Jumping to the RC Nitro's is a hobby grade RC. The difference is night and day. They steer pretty much like your little car using a radio control system. With the speed of the Nitro RC's, they can really get away from you. Though the toy grade RC's can be expensive, they don't compare to the hobby grade RC.

Just what is a nitro engine? An RC nitro engine is a manufacturing phenomenon. These tiny but powerful nitro engines can reach speeds in excess of 40,000 RPM! Needless to point out this is an extremely HIGH RPM for such a small reciprocating style engine. Think about how fast that tiny piston goes up and down constantly. If you compare a nitro engine to a typical V8 engine, it begins to redline somewhere around 6000 RPM or so. Go much further and you will be picking up pieces off the street. Not only are these little buggers small and powerful it is amazing they can handle this type of operation. They truly are considered "cool"!

I am sure you have heard of monster truck pulls. They are loud and lots of fun to watch. Well, with these nitro fueled RC trucks, you can participate in a RC nitro truck pull. Instead of watching, you are doing it. Granted it is on a smaller scale but the fun just increased off the chart.

There are plenty of manufactures of RC nitro powered vehicles. Many of them have set up racing tracks for the true hobbyist. Nitro clubs can be found all over the country. Yes, they are expensive but man are they a lot of fun.
