Nitro RC Cars
"1/8 and 1/10 on-road and off-road toys powered by special nitro fuel. Fast, loud and exciting."

Nothing is more exciting than hearing the sound of the 2-stroke nitro powered engines. With 2-speed transmissions, these radio controlled models can easily reach 40 to 50 mph. Below is a video of my 10 year old daughter having fun with my 1/10 NEO nitro touring rc car.
Nitro rc cars are more complex than their electric counterparts, and the engines can sometimes be finicky and difficult to tune. Clutch, 2-speed transmission, tune pipes, fuel tank, 2-stroke engines... all have to be in good working condition in order to get the best from your rc car.
