Gas Powered RC Cars

For Playing and Bashing

If you want the sound and realism of a 2-stroke nitro engine, buy a gas powered rc car. For bashing around parking lots and having drag races with friends, a 1/10 scale 4wd shaft drive nitro touring car is a good type to buy.

Recommendation:

1/10 HPI Nitro RS4 RTR Evo 3 - Speeds of 80 kph out of the box with beautiful BMW and Porsche rc car bodies.

1/10 Kyosho GP Fazer - Aston Martin DBR9, Porsche 911 and McLaren F1 GTR rc car bodies. Good for kids who want a nitro car as the speeds are not too fast.

200mm Gas RC Cars for Racing

For serious racing on flat and clean racing tracks, choose either the 200mm wide 1/10 IC Touring Gas Car or the 1/8 Nitro RC Car. These classes have IFMAR World Championships held every 2 years.

Races are generally 30mins to 1 hour long with pitstops for fuel every 5 minutes. This is as close to real car racing as you can get.

Top brands from the last World Championships are XRAY, Mugen, Shepherd, Serpent and Kyosho.


Those 1/8th scale nitro rc cars sure get the adrenaline going. Let's look at where we can buy these...
