RC-cars are a great hobby, here's our top picks for getting into the hobby in the best way possible!
When it comes to RC-cars, it's important to remember that there is a wide variety available. You've got the toys you can find at the supermarket, then you've got the hobby-grade RC's and everything in between. Our focus has always been quality hobby-grade cars. The ways hobby-grade cars differ from what you can get at the nearest supermarket are for example performance, durability, serviceability and most of all quality.
Features we demand from our products to call them hobby-grade cars in good conscience:
A quick summary as to why you should buy a hobby-grade RC-car from us:
If you buy a hobby-grade RC-car from us you'll have the best possible odds of having the car still running after a couple of years.
This means that the car is good enough to keep you lured in and the serviceability is good enough for you to be able to fix and maintain the car over the years. You'll get such good customer service, tips and help from us that the hobby stays fun and easy. Our goal is to keep our customers interested in the hobby years after making their first purchase from us.
We've split our picks into 4 different price categories:
50€-150€ - Small off-roaders and monsters
The cars in this price category are significantly better than the cars you'll find at the supermarket but they might not tick all the boxes to be counted as hobby-grade cars. If your experience in RC-cars is limited to toy-grade cars the performance will surely surprise you in the most positive of ways and you'll have a great chance of keeping these in use for multiple years.
150€-250€ - Rear wheel drive hobby-grade cars
Our picks in this price category tick all the boxes of a hobby-grade vehicle and you'll be ready to stay in the hobby for the years to come with these.
250€-500€ - 4WD hobby-grade cars
The cars in this category are the best bang for your buck. These cars are full-on hobby-grade cars with crazy performance, and they have great potential to be modified and built so that they can evolve with you. The cars at 250-350 euros are equipped with brushed electronics and from that point out the cars generally come with brushless systems (aside from the crawlers). The brushless electronics are better, they've got more power, better efficiency and are more reliable. The top speed of the cars with brushed electronics is right around 40-50km/h while the brushless systems will propel the cars to around 50-100km/h. You can also put brushless electronics in a car with brushed electronics when you want more performance, so even if you start off with a car with brushed electronics you can turn it into a brushless beast later on.
Over 500€ - 4WD big monsters
In this price category the performance, durability and size of the cars are very impressive. The cars are big, usually 1/8th scale brushless monsters that have more than enough performance to leave you in awe.
