Here at rcMart, we carry one of the widest selections of RC car kits and model kits from leading manufacturers. From 3Racing to Tamiya, Yokomo, and many others, beginners and even more serious hobbyists can find an RC car model to suit their needs.
For beginners just starting into the hobby, one of the most important decisions is choosing which type of radio controlled car to get. For instance, should you start with a toy-class or hobby-class car? Electric or Nitro fueled? Kit or ready-to-run?
While ready-to-run RCs are generally the easiest way to get into the hobby, many enthusiasts prefer to get assemble-it-yourself kits that give them the ability to add their own design and performance customizations. Putting together your own car kit will also give you the chance to become more familiar with the inner workings of your RC vehicle, and lets you the experience the fun of building the car yourself.
Assembling RC car kits can also provide you with the necessary know-how to repair minor issues, or replace damaged parts. This can save you a considerable amount of money in the long term, as you get more involved in the hobby.
Another important thing to remember is that although toy-grade RCs offer a more affordable option for absolute beginners who have never operated an RC car, hobby-grade cars are generally made of more durable materials, and have much better components that allow it to deliver superior performance, whether on a racetrack against other hobbyists, or in your own backyard.
Of course, purchasing a car kit doesn\'t necessarily mean that you\'ll be limited to that particular model\'s stock design or components. One of the main draws of the RC hobby for enthusiasts is the practically endless possibilities of customizing the car\'s looks and performance. As with any real car, decals and a new paint job can easily distinguish your car against other hobbyists on the track, while upgrading the engine, suspension, tires, and other components can give your car an edge against other competitors in the racetrack.
