There exists a huge market for electric radio control cars these days. These vehicles are self-powered models of cars or trucks that someone can control remotely using a special transmitter. The vehicles can be powered in a couple of different ways. Some are powered by electric motor using a variety of different types of batteries. Other models might use small gasoline engines.
Toy grade vehicles will not go as fast or have as many controls. They are much easier to operate and normally designed to look like real vehicles. They are modeled after real vehicles and many include features like sounds, hoods that open, and working lights. These cars are usually produced with a focus on design - to make them look real - and with a goal of reducing production costs.
Hobby grade models are usually more expensive than ones that are toy grade. These types of vehicles are made to go faster and to handle better. Many hobby grade vehicles are used in racing, which is becoming more popular among remote control car enthusiasts. Some models will use nitro methane for fuel which will allow for the cars to reach great speeds. The nitro fuel is expensive, though, and some hobbyists will opt for gasoline-powered models. Over time, the cost of the gasoline-powered vehicle is less than the nitro-powered one. No matter which type one chooses, though, electric radio control cars can be a lot of fun for anyone, including adults.
