Remote control cars aren't just for children. If you've ever taken an RC car for a spin on the street, then you'll know that these are sophisticated and authentic models of real vehicles that anyone can enjoy. According to studies, millennials are the largest cohort of RC car buyers.

Whether you're just getting into RC vehicles or you want to expand your collection, choosing which type of RC car can be a big decision. Keep reading because, in this post, we will show you a few of the best models around.

How to Choose an RC Car to Invest In

There's a lot that goes into choosing an RC car. In addition to the type of car, you also need to think about things like batteries, speed, and overall capability.

When it comes to the type of car, you can choose anything from monster trucks to rally cars. At PM Hobbycraft, we've got a wide selection of RC cars available on our website.

What most people don't realize is that RC cars have come a long way. In terms of performance, modern RC cars are able to go beyond legal speed limits and travel distances of 60 or more miles.

Scale is another deciding factor. RC cars are measured in fractions of their full-sized counterparts, with the most common being 1/10, though you can go all the way up to 1/5. It's best to choose a more common scale so that finding replacement parts is easier.

Most Popular RC Cars On the Market

To decide which type of RC car to add to your collection, your first move should be to set a budget. RC cars come in a wide price range, from a couple of hundred dollars to well over a thousand. 

There are numerous brands to choose from as well. Some of the most popular and reputable brands on our site include Traxxas, Axial, Tamiya, and Kyosho. Which brand you go with will depend on the type of vehicle you're looking for.

For beginners, off-road RC cars might be better because you can take them on most types of terrain. On-road models tend to go faster and open your search up to cars that specialize in drifting. Each car has different characteristics, so you have to think about how you'll be using it.
