Electric RC Cars powered models are the most popular; when purchasing an electric RC car your first decision would be to go a brushed or brushless model. If you want to go fast get a brushless model. If you're a beginner it might be best to get a brushed model.
You can get 2WD RC Cars, RWD RC Cars (rear wheel drive), and 4WD RC cars. 4WD is typically preferred but some drifters prefer 2WD/RWD as they can be more realistic to drive in terms of their handling characteristics.
