Top Five RC Truck Brands
Whether you're totally pumped to start a new hobby or you've been into RC trucks for awhile and are ready to add a great new model to your collection, here are the five brands that you can always count on to produce killer trucks:
With feature lists that are so long someone could write a book about them, HPI knows a thing or two about producing trucks that are packed with features and capable of delivering awesome performances. From including a waterproof throttle to HB solid suspension arms, no detail slips pasts the radar of HPI's talented team.
Thanks to its impressive features at a very affordable price, the Infinitive EP Monster Truck from Exceed is one of the most popular models on the market. You will be very happy if you decide to buy this truck for yourself or as a gift for someone who's all about RC trucks.
If you want to buy a RC truck from a company that definitely knows how to make winning models, you need to check out some options like Thunder Tiger's Phoenix ST II. In addition to its awesome appearance, this truck features a quadra-symmetric suspension that provides excellent handling and stability. It also gets plenty of power from its 17 turn motor and rear wheel drive. Other Thunder Tiger trucks that won't ever disappoint you are the MT4-EP Brushless and ST4 G3.
Although there are always going to be people who disagree because they have their own opinion on the matter, plenty of RC truck enthusiasts rank the Traxxas e-Revo Brushless as the best model that money can buy. Why are people so passionate about this specific model? A big part of its appeal comes from the fact that it's able to reach speeds of over 50 mph! Not only is this truck ridiculously fast, but it also has extremely high quality features like a four-wheel shaft drive, high-efficiency heat sink and coated oil shocks. Traxxas also has some other very impressive trucks, including the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Slash VXL.
If the idea of RC trucks appeals to you because you're a fan of monster trucks, you're going to love one of the vehicles that New Bright makes. One of their best selling models is the Ford Bigfoot Monster Truck. As you may have guessed, this is a 1:14 scale replica of the monster truck that fans love to watch. And just like the original, it's capable of pounding over obstacles, racing across terrain and catching big air when you take it off a jump. You also won't ever have to worry about getting bored thanks to its radio transmitter controls that have a steering range of 100 feet.
