R/C Cars

Radio Controlled Cars

One of the most common questions we are asked at Hobby-Sports.com is how fast will my R/C car go?  Well, our honest answer will always be that it depends…  You may be thinking that we are not giving you a straight answer, but we need a bit more information from you in order to give you a range.  Does your model have a nitro (glow) engine?  Is it powered by an electric motor?  Is it engineered for racing or fun?  Is it stock or has it been modified for higher speeds?  There are a multitude of features that we need to take into consideration prior to establishing a speed range for your R/C car.  But, don’t worry!  We will get to the bottom of what your car is capable of!

Need for Speed!

Fast cars are always fun.  But, unless you are an experienced driver, choosing an R/C car strictly for its speed is not a good idea.  Here is a rough estimate of what kinds of speeds you can expect from different R/C models.  But, remember that your actual speeds will vary depending on all the factors involved with your vehicle!

  • Off-Road Electric – 15-60 mph
  • Off-Road Nitro – 20-60 mph
  • On-Road Electric – 20-100 mph
  • On-Road Nitro – 20-70 mph
