Nitro RC Trucks
These fast nitro rc trucks are based on electric rc trucks. The main difference is that the electric motor has been replaced with a more powerful 2-stroke gas engine.
Nitro RC trucks are very popular, and have their own category or class in organized racing events.
The Popular Associated RC10GT Gas Truck
In my opinion, the best 1/10 scale, nitro powered rc truck is the Associated RC10GT. However, time and technology has caught up with the RC10GT, and new challengers such as the 55+mph Traxxas Nitro Jato.
The major manufacturers of nitro rc trucks are Team Associated, Team Losi, Traxxas, and HPI Racing.
How fast do they go?
Entry level nitro rc trucks can reach speeds of 30 mph, and some of the newer entry model nitro rc trucks can reach 40+ mph out of the box.
What is RTR?
RTR means ready to run. Open the box, put fuel in the gas tank, and start playing. No assembly required. Getting started with nitro rc trucks is so easy.
How much do they cost?
Nitro rc trucks are cheap considering the amount of fun you will get from playing and racing with them. Price can be as low as $200, to as high as $460, depending on what you are looking for.
Why are they called nitro rc trucks?
The term "nitro" refers to the nitrogen found in the fuel used for nitro rc trucks. It is the nitrogen the provides power... allowing speeds in excess of 40 mph! These are special fuel, regular gasoline will NOT work!
They are also called "gas" or "gas-powered" rc trucks.
