So you say you are new to the world of RC cars? Well welcome to one of the most exhilarating hobbies around!
While some may consider an RC car a "toy", there really is so much more to it than that - as they say, there really is more than meets the eye. RC cars are a great way to learn about or increase one's knowledge of mechanics, electronics, physics, and much more. In fact, these are not "toys" at all....lift the body off a hobby RC car, and you will find a fully functional model car that in every way acts like (and often) outperforms what it's full sized cousins are able to do (in scale, of course).
There are many differences between a "toy" RC car and a "hobby" RC car. What really separates the two is the flat out performance you can achieve with a high quality "Hobby" RC car. Other things you can do with a "hobby" car are:
- replace parts
- race at RC car tracks
- tune, etc.
