Looking for a quality RC Car at a cheap price? Then you are in the right place! I have focused on the Top 10 Cheapest Rc Cars 2017, that also has a good quality.

And I have found the best prices available online and linked them right to the sales page at amazon, the most trusted shop online.

#10 Shelby Mustang GT500

If you're a fan of muscle cars then you need to do yourself a favor and get the Licensed Shelby GT500 Super Snake Electric RC Car. This fantastic RC is officially licensed and features an impressive amount of detail. The high gloss finish, the rubber tires, and the detailed engine are only some of the things that really make this RC stand out.

The full function radio control will let you steer the car in any direction, so you'll be zipping around corners in no time. Own the RC version of this legendary muscle car.

 

#9 Tri-Band Off-road Rock Crawler

This RC car is perfect for beginners. Most RC cars I have tried have trouble with turning. With this one however, the turning is perfect. This RC car is not too fast or too slow, and can even be driven indoors. It can go offroad and over obstacles almost as tall as itself. The car uses six AA batteries and if you use it often, will need new batteries in about 3 days.

It would be convenient to use rechargeable AA batteries. The car(and the remote control)when turned on can be switched to any three channels(A,B,C), allowing up to three cars to be driven at the same time and place. The car has four wheeled drive and full suspension. It can go forwards, backwards, left, and right.

#8 Porsche 911 GT3

The porshe 911 gt3rs by XQ toys is awesome! Very fast. The turning radious is O.K. Every thing else is perfect for a r/c car its size. Controller is very small, car does not run on carpet, it takes 4 AA batteries, and a 9V. Once again, great buy for its size and quality.

 

#7 2011 Sebastian Vettel Red Bull

1/12 Scale 2011 Sebastian Vettel Red Bull RB7 Radio Remote Control Formula One F1 Racing Car R/C Ready to Run (All Batteries including)

I just received this three days after I ordered it. Very fast delivery. I charged the battery, installed it in the vehicle, set the other battery in the controller, and started the fun! It's about 17 inches long, six inches wide and about four inches high. I love the colors, how the model looks! It is relatively quiet when operating, but I do miss the high whinning hum of the real formula 1 vehicles, but I love it.

#6 Bo Toys 1/12 Scale Electric RC Car Offroad

The Bo-Toys 1/12 scale RC truck is a great truck for people getting into RC, as well as for experienced hobbyists. I have been in this hobby for a couple years now and I can say that this is definitely a hobby grade truck and I love it. For $60 dollars you get an all inclusive RC truck with a top speed of around 27 mph. One thing I was worried about was that it wasn't 4wd. But soon I realized that that wasn't such a bad thing because 2wd means you can drift out! Overall this car is great, but there are a few downsides.

First off, the acceleration is pretty slow. Thay being said, it still doesn't take long to get up to speed

Secondly, the transmitter feels rather cheap. It is made out of a really light plastic that feels like a toy in your hand. This bothered me at first, but once you really start driving the car, you kind of forget about the transmitter because it is so much fun!

#5 R/C PRO WOLF, Flat Track Racer

New Bright 1:12 (14") R/C PRO WOLF, Flat Track Racer- All About Speed
New Bright 1:12 (14") R/C PRO WOLF, Flat Track Racer- All About Speed

So the car is lighter than a matchbox car it seems! And with a 12.8 vlt battery it can certainly move quick for the size of the motor. The rear axle is "fully locked". What i mean is if you spin one tire, the other spins the same direction! This feature adds to the fun value! As you are going forward, if you suddenly go backwards it does a 180 spin out! Awesome!

I bought it for my 4 year old son for Christmas. It aslo does donuts like its easy. Every single time you accelerate it spins out! Now the hood pins are made of plastic and break very easily but they can be replaced with metal ones. Over all the car is awesome and way cooler than any rc i've ever had so my son is a lucky little boy! I guess its good i was deprived as a child because I certainly hook up my boys! The ground clearance is low so its nots as versatile as the more expensive ones. but for a new bright i would saay its their top end product!

#1 Maisto R/C Rock Crawler

I wanted an inexpensive off road R/C vehicle that didn't cost much over $100. I'm not planning on racing, just something for the yard and driveway. Well, this fit the bill perfectly. It will crawl over grass, sidewalks, sand, small animals, almost anything that gets in it's way.

It does exactly what you think those cheap R/C trucks SHOULD do but don't. I drove it in the rain and through shallow water and it did great.

Nr 1. Speed Rc Car 33+ MPH - HOSIM S911

This truck is FAST and my family loves it. We recieved the truck quickly and the box wasn't too hard to open. One of the zip ties around each tire and one around the truck itself. We had to plug it up and let it charge before we could try it out.

After about an hour it was ready; my husband said that having to take the entire body off to turn the truck on is a inconvience. This is one reason for losing a star, if the kids are playing with it they can not take the body off themselves and one of us would have to take the body of the truck off to recharge it. So we took it down to the parking lot and man is this truck fast!! It is almost too hard to keep up with its so fast. At first we were trying to figure out why this truck was so heavy feeling but now we know it's because it's trying to weigh the truck down when traveling at this rate of speed and turning or even stopping.

This is also where we lose part of the star because if you're going fast and need to turn suddenly you will flip over and it takes more energy to move more weight, and this battery lasted maybe 10minutes after a full charge. We also had the tire pop off the rim! I've attached pictures of the battery pack and charger under the truck, also pictures of the truck so you can see how big it is and the directions that are written on the back of the box *I recieved this truck at a discounted price for my honest review and opinion.

All and all this truck is awesome and we would get it again! Since we've opened it our son and daughter have asked to play with it and want to take it to the park, very cool truck!
