RC Electric Cars or Nitro High Power Cars?

Aug 22, 2008
For some people, when they hear conversations about the unique radio controlled nitro high power car, they immediately think about memories of great summer afternoons at the race track enjoying the excitement of the event.

Perhaps its so familiar to you that all you need to do is think of it and you can inhale the exhaust smell and all but hear the roar of the screaming crowd. There are shouts of encouragement as the drivers roar off from the start line in a haze of blue smoke.

So, if you love the feeling you get from that kind of an experience, but can't make it down to the raceway on a regular basis, then maybe a nitro high power car is for you. With the miniature version, you can capture some of the excitement that comes from being there.

These gasoline-powered RC cars are really miniature versions of the high power car models seen on the real race tracks. They run on a mixture of fuel that includes nitromethane, which is called nitro as well. If it seems that you have heard of that fuel before, perhaps in conjunction with the real dragsters, then you are right. It is the very same fuel that they burn.

One popular version is the RC high power car. They aren't quite the same as the grown up versions though as they don't lubricate the engine in the same way and so need to have some castor oil added to the fuel blend to make sure they don't become overheated and break down.

One of the main advantages of the nitro cars is that they are able to reach and maintain a higher speed for a longer period of time and you can quickly and easily refill a nitro fueled car and get it back on the road immediately. With RC electric cars, you have to recharge the battery before it can run again, or you have to invest in costly additional battery packs.

Nitro cars are fast. Must faster than electric cars and they can maintain their speed for longer. They also only need to be refuelled and they are back on the road. RC electric cars are powered by batteries so unless you are prepared to buy additional battery packs you won't be able to race all day.

Another consideration is noise. The high power car that is nitro powered is also quite noisy in addition to having to deal with the exhaust issues. With this in mind, these powerful little racers are not intended to be raced indoors.
