Radio Controlled Trucks - Building One Yourself Can Be Heaps of Fun!

If you love tinkering, then building your own radio controlled trucks from a kit is something that I guarantee is going to be right up your alley.

When you build radio controlled trucks yourself, you have an in-depth knowledge of how that truck operates and, as a result, will be able to make needed repairs much easier. This not only saves you a bunch of money, but it also gets you back on the road a whole lot faster than having to ship your truck off somewhere for repairs.

You'll find that customizing the radio controlled trucks that you've built will be a lot easier, and less expensive, as well.

Of course, if tool town is not on your property, and you broke your thumb the last time you hung a picture on the wall, then you will probably want to go with one that is ready-to-run (RTR) right out of the box.

Buying RTR radio controlled trucks is by far the fastest way to go from inexperienced to road ranger in record time. Most RTR trucks are ready to roll minutes after you take them out of the box.

Chances are you will have no problem finding a whole slew of radio controlled trucks to fall in love with. Many RC trucks are designed after their real-world counterparts. Don't be surprised to find the Ford F-350, Ford Excursion, Chevy Silverado, Humm-Vee Urban, Peterbilt, and more.

Costs can range from $100, or so, right on up to "Holy cow, you want how much?", depending upon what you're in the market for. Radio controlled trucks are not a cheap hobby.

There are some very cool radio controlled trucks available including full-fledged semi-trailers. Complete with diesel sounds, air horn (electronic), flashers, clearance and headlights, and remote controlled fifth wheel, you can be a big rig driver for a couple of hundred bucks.

Beware though -- just like in the real world, these rigs are a lot of trouble to back up and park, and you're likely to jack knife a whole lot of times before you graduate to master driver.

If you're into construction, you can also pick up a complete line of "hardhat" radio controlled trucks including earth movers, dump trucks, cement trucks, flatbeds, loggers, and even a forklift. Although not really classified as "trucks", there are also dune buggies, ATVs, and army tanks just waiting for you to take them home.

Market research has shown that most radio controlled trucks are purchased by people who drive trucks in real life. And it's no wonder.

Once you slip behind the wheel of a truck, any kind of truck, there's just no reason to ever drive a car again.

So go ahead, spoil yourself. Park the RC cars in the garage and get behind the wheel of a real machine! You know you want to so why wait any longer?
