Nitro rc cars and trucks look cool. It’s a pride to own one and it looks great on road and off road. But they do cost a lost as well. Well, in order not to end up with a piece of junk or spend way too much on a simple model, some tips should be kept in mind.

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. With an RTR kit you get a decent radio and the car for a decent price. It is always advisable to find a manufacturer that has good following. It leads you to find parts, hop ups, technical advice, etc easily available. Parts for RC kits are 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.

Nitro T-Maxx 3.3 Monster Truck 4WD RTR

T-Maxx is legendary for providing the perfect balance of size, speed, power, and agility. With the new Traxxas T-Maxx 3.3 Nitro RC Truck, we’ve turned that balance upside down with mind-boggling, over-the-top horsepower. Chances are you’ve never driven anything like this before. Just how powerful is the new T-Maxx 3.3? The wheelie bar is mandatory installed equipment! The TRX 3.3 delivers brutal bottom-end torque for amazing wheel-standing launches, along with hard-charging acceleration that is second to none. Hammer the throttle at any speed and the T-Maxx responds like a caged animal that’s been unleashed for destruction. Top speeds soar past 45mph! The T-Maxx 3.3 Nitro RC RTR Truck is without question the most powerful T-Maxx ever made!

More Engine, More Power, More Speed!
The TRX® 2.5 set the bar and was heralded as “the most powerful smallblock engine we have ever tested” by RC Car Action Magazine. The TRX® 3.3 is bigger, faster and puts out a whopping 60% more peak horsepower compared to the TRX 2.5. The overall power under the curve is nearly 50% greater. This means you get smooth, linear power output with increased performance and responsiveness across the entire RPM range. Of course, not everyone is ready for this kind of power. The TRX 3.3 is for drivers at the highest skill level who have the experienced reflexes for extreme speed and acceleration in the T-Maxx.

With the heavy-duty shot of extreme horsepower, T-Maxx received additional refinement and strength to keep it tough in the hands of punishing drivers. The new Revo®-spec driveline uses oversized, super-duty sealed driveshafts and Revo® axle carriers. The axle carriers use larger rubber sealed bearings and sealed pivot balls for long life and virtually maintenance free performance. New 3.8″ Split-Spoke™ chrome wheels come with pre-glued Talon™ tires for high-speed runs and ultimate traction.

Adjustable Wheelie Bar
The T-Maxx 3.3 Nitro RC RTR Truckcomes equipped with a new adjustable wheelie bar (patent pending). With so much power on tap, it’s a must have! The wheelie bar has 4-snap-in-adjustment-positions that allow you to choose how extreme you want your action to be. In the down position, it keeps the front end of the T-Maxx planted to show off the incredible acceleration possible with the TRX 3.3. Raise the wheelie bar to its full-up position and the action gets wild, with giant wheelies that hang on as long as you keep mashing the throttle… even through second gear! The T-Maxx 3.3 is faster on two wheels than most other trucks are on the ground. It’s an amazing thrill show that will put your driving skills to the test again and again. The unique design allows it to be easily removed in situations where you may not want the additional control.

OptiDrive® Electronic Shift Module
T-Maxx 3.3’s transmission delivers innovative two-speed, forward/reverse operation in an ultra-compact package. The new gearbox design combines the compactness of the T-Maxx platform with the internal transmission components that have been proven reliable on and off the track in the Traxxas Revo®. The incredible Torque-Control™ slipper and a powerful 42mm disc brake are carried over from the Revo for superior traction control and braking performance. The OptiDrive® electronic shift module uses advanced microprocessor control to sense vehicle speed and optimize forward and reverse shifting. Direction control is performed via a third channel on the transmitter. This revolutionary, patent-pending system allows the transmission to be lighter with fewer moving parts for reduced inertial mass and greater torque handling. OptiDrive provides constant drive engagement for seamless, responsive acceleration. Combine that with the power of the TRX 3.3 Racing Engine and you’ve got incredible hard-hitting, wheels-up launches that will put the wheelie bar to the test. The wide ratio, adjustable two-speed transmission provides no-compromise acceleration and unmatched top speed in one package.
