Buying a remote control car has never been easier. You can buy kits that need assembly or the ready-to-run (rtr) models that are already assembled and ready to run out of the box.

There are virtually all kinds of models to choose from, depending on what you want. Most start off with the 4wd touring cars, designed for running on-road on flat surfaces such as parking lots. Very easy to drive.
Pictured: The 1/10 Tamiya TT01E chassis with a BMW body and light kit is the entry level model that is good for beginners.There are also the minis, which are either rear wheel drive (M06) or front wheel drive (M05). These are simple and sport bodies such as the Mazda RX-7, Suzuki Swift, Mazda Miata, Volkswagen Beetle, Fiat 500, Alfa Romeo, Honda Civic and more.

There are also Formula One r/c cars for the fans of Ferrari and McLaren Mercedes. The Tamiya F104 chassis and licensed replica bodies make this a favorite among modellers and expert drivers.

Hope this gives you a good overview of the various on-road r/c cars you can choose from. If you prefer off-road, visit the rc trucks section of this site. And if you are excited to buy, visit the hobby shop page for a listing of online hobby stores.
