Best Selling Nitro Radio Controlled Cars

Updated on July 6, 2014

Fast and Furious!

If you are interested in radio controlled cars then you will probably be interested in Nitro radio controlled cars. These cars are the new generation of RC vehicles and are starting to replace the electric powered vehicles.

These cars run on a mixture of methanol, nitro methane and either castor oil or a synthetic oil. This mixture is very combustible and more closely resembles a diesel motor than a gas one. The fuel is fairly easy to make or you can purchase it from hobby stores or online.

One cool thing about nitro RC vehicles is that there are upgrades. These include parts made of aluminum that helps make the car lighter. You will be able to find parts from carburetors to connecting rods. There are even motors with power upgrades available and even an external turbo charger that you can add to your nitro car.

Nitro Radio Controlled cars may be small but some motors have enough power that is similar to a regular gas-powered lawnmower!
