The Remote Control Truck A Powerful Machine!

The remote control truck brings a new level of power to the RC vehicle scene.

The most popular models, by far, are the giant-wheeled nitro-powered 4WD monster truck, and it's no wonder. Built for raw power, performance, and good looks, RC Monster Trucks are come in 1/8 and 1/10 scale, with 2WD or 4WD.

RC monster trucks are the biggest, meanest, toughest remote control trucks available. Their big-block engines and huge tires large tires RC Monster Trucks can fight their way through just about any terrain by sheer, brute power.

RC Monster Trucks can be used on road and off road. With their high ground these remote control trucks can climb hills, roll over rocks, and navigate sand pits. Their awesome 4WD and low gear ration given them tremendous traction and climbing ability.

Available in both 1/8 and 1/10 scale, these remote control trucks have been clocked at speeds up to 40 MPH.

Of course, there are more remote control trucks available besides the monsters. Nitro-powered pickups, dump trucks, tractor trailers, garbage trucks, vans, and even tow trucks exist to satisfy your every truck dream.

Find yourself a good dirt track and you can burn hours running through each truck's bag of tricks including watching some models that can jump as high as 20 feet in the air!

Like most RC vehicles, remote control trucks come in both electric and gas engine models. Electric versions can run for 10 to 20 minutes before they need to be recharged. Nitro models, on the other hand, require a quick pit stop and a spare can of fuel.

Designed after their big brothers, you can find remote control trucks designed after the Ford F100, Chevy Avalanches and Blazers, Dodge Ram, Peterbuilt, Kenmore, and other popular real-life brands. Note quite in the truck category, but not quite a car either, you can also find Jeeps, Dune Buggies, and Hummers! Yep, there really are remote control Hummers.

If your collection is going to include remote control trucks from the hauling and construction series, then you might want to add a way cool RC forklift while you're at it. They have a full set of remote controlled functions that actually operate the fork, and they sport a 100% realistic look.

While we're on the subject of construction remote control trucks, you might want to spend some bucks and pick yourself up a cement mixer and a CAT bulldozer for extra measure. And, if your construction projects take you into a ware zone, a fully operational radio controlled Sherman tank can haul twice its weight in materials and it's loads of fun to drive.

Although I love any remote control truck that I see, my favorite has to be the Peterbilt wrecker. It's designed with an opening hood that has plenty of room even with it's two included motors, and a sleeper cab which also houses the batteries and electrical system.

It's available only in kit form but it's very easy to put together.
