Nitro RC cars use a remote in order to control the cars action. The nitro cars on the other hand, utilize fuel referred to as nitro. Nitro fuel contains a blend of nitro methane, in addition to methane and oil. This helps nitro cars to facilitate screaming fast speeds in comparison to remote cars.
One of the major advantages of a nitro powered vehicle is power, speed, and acceleration. With a nitro fueled truck or buggy, you are able to navigate the toughest of terrains and easily perform daring maneuvers and jumps that will delight both you and spectators. Moving to the street, there are many nitro powered RC cars that can achieve incredible speeds of 75 mph directly out of the box. And if you live near a lake or river, a nitro fueled boat can provide hours of entertainment and fun racing across the water and jumping waves at speeds of close to 40 mph.
Another benefit of going with a nitro RC car over an electric model is length of operation. A typical electric motor battery can last approximately ten to fifteen minutes and take up to forty-five minutes to charge. With a nitro vehicle, the only limitation is the fuel you have available. Just like with your real car or truck, when your nitro model gets low on gas, just fill the tank and you're ready to go.
In other side Electric cars are run on batteries. The batteries are assembled into battery packs that usually have a recharging capability. This is much more cost effective than cars that require new batteries. However it can also be time consuming having to recharge your battery pack, so if you do not like to wait, a spare battery pack is likely a good investment.
The reason for the popularity of electric remote controlled cars is that they are cheap to procure. They are generally toys that are pre-assembled or can be purchased as kits. They cost much less than Nitro RC cars. Economically speaking, these cars provide an affordable option to gas -powered cars.
Electric RC car is that it can be safely used indoors. The unfavorable outdoor conditions do not matter to a RC car hobbyist, if he owns an electric RC car. There are two factors that differentiate between Electric remote control cars and Nitro RC cars and these are:
The electric RC cars are ideal for use indoors as they run silently and do not make much noise. Nitro engines on the other hand use combustion and can be very noisy, therefore cannot be used indoors. If run indoors, the sound will reverberate off the walls in the enclosed space.
Electricity is a clean energy. Hence, there are no unwanted by-products of running the electric RC car. Nevertheless, due to limited charge these cannot be used for a long time and frequently need recharging. Comparatively, nitro engines run for a longer period of time.
