For a beginner nitro rc stadium trucks or monster trucks can be great fun. But monster trucks are not as fast as stadium trucks. A Nitro rc Stadium truck can nail down to 50-60 mph and can take huge jumps but tear up some asphalt.

Rc Buggies are also pretty much like stadium trucks. HPI MT2 18SS seems to be a pretty good truck. If you’ve never had a high powered nitro or electric car before, you might want to start with a 4wd car. They’re much easier to control.

RC kits are easy to use and readily available. They are fairly popular too. Another plus point for the same is that help for them is also readily available.

While buying kits there might some other things that need to be bought along with the RC kit or separately. Most of the time, the kits come with a car and a motor only. Some more advanced models come without motor at all. The RTR RC kits usually come with a radio and actually do not require much building up. They are around 97% completely built. You will also need to buy a nitro fuel that is especially for the Remote Control cars. Keep a check not to end up buying a Nitro Fuel for a Remote control Plane. For radio controlled cars, petrol can also be a fuel source.

A glow plug igniter is also required. They come in various different shapes and kinds but more or less all are same but some come with a meter to show how much of fuel is left. A fuel bottle is also necessary. They are not an absolute necessity, but make pouring fuel into the tank much easier than out of a one gallon can. Investing in a good air filter is always a wise decision. This would make up all the necessary things while buying a Nitro car. Other handy stuff that may come in useful should be tucked in a fishing tackle box. This would include things likes screw drivers, a cleaning sock, needle nose pliers, some spare screws, glues etc. Put all these things into seperate slots to make it a little more organized.
If you have had some experience with RC cars earlier then build-it-up kits are also advisable. Build-it-yourself and unassembled kits generally have higher quality parts and you can choose your own engine and other parts. This is more advisable for people who have already had some equipment and move from one model to another. So the cost drops after the initial investment. This also helps to know your kit in and out and makes you more familiar with your vehicle.

Hope these tips help. More tips on the next posts.
