Another thing to think about before purchasing an off-road RC truck is whether you want a 2WD truck or a 4WD truck. We recommend 2WD for
longer runtime, higher speeds and lower costs, however, 4WD trucks have better handling.
We stock a vast range of RC truck brands, including ARRMA, Axial, ECX, Hobby Engine, HPI, HSP, Losi, Rovan Sports, Tamiya, TLR, Traxxas and Xinlehong. With a choice of either nitro trucks, petrol trucks or the very popular electric trucks which come in either a brushed motor or to go a bit
faster, a brushless motor.
This is referring to the motor type. In short, brushless motors are superior to brushed motors in every way apart from cost.
If you're wanting to go fast and you can afford a bit extra, go brushless when you purchase the car as to upgrade a brushed car to brushless can be expensive.
Go electric unless you're wanting a 1/5 scale car (in which case, petrol is a viable option). Nitro cars have too many cons that outway their pros unless you're a true nitro enthusiast.

Typically, 4WD cars are more expensive but deliver better handling. However, 2WD cars are typically more durable, easier to maintain (as they have less moving parts) and have a longer run time.
