RC Cars – A Great Beginner’s Model – Traxxas RC Stampede

Posted on 27 October 2010


There are many people who are really starting to get into RC racing as it is shown on television late at night. These RC cars are a lot faster than the old remote controlled cars that you used to find 10 years ago – these ones are capable of incredible speeds and car easily beat a full size car in acceleration alone.

The cars are called Nitro cars, or Nitro buggies, which run on a mixture of nitro methane and oil, function in much the same way as full size engines because they have an internal combustion engine which is typically two stroke in order to generate their massive power. However, these hobby grade engines are expensive to buy, and a chassis that is designed to handle the large forces generated by this engine even more so, and the huge cost can be very off-putting to those who just want to get started.

Luckily, there are cheaper models available that are not quite toy-grade but still pack a lot of acceleration and speed. Electric technology is improving fast, and some think that maybe one day the electric variants will be faster than the nitro powered versions.

If you are looking for a powerful starter’s car then you couldn’t do any better than a Traxxas Stampede for starting out. These cars are powered by battery rather than an oil nitro mixture which gives them a little bit less power but they are still really fast and maneuverable. The cost of the starting model of the Stampede is under $200 which is really affordable for many especially since the full scale nitro models can cost $600 or even more!

The 4×4 rating of the Traxxas Stampede allows it to travel over multiple surfaces, and its suspension can handle the bumps with ease. If you are looking for a good car for starting out then look up this model – you won’t regret it!
