Cheapest Gas RC Cars

Looking for the cheapest gas rc cars! Let me tell you about the best place to find them.

But before that let’s talk a little about how gas rc cars fare up against nitro* and electric radio control cars when it comes to expenses.

(* In many of the websites you will find the terms nitro cars and gas cars used interchangeably. I strongly disagree with that because these are two different sets of cars with their own unique properties. For all purposes on this website I will be considering them as distinct entities. The way gas cars and nitro cars work is similar but they are certainly not interchangeable.)

There are two ways of looking at it. One you could consider the intial money you have to put into each of them and second take into account the overall cost over a longer period of time which includes the initial cost, maintenance, fuel cost and all other associated expenses.

I reckon the latter is a better estimate of the actual expenditure done in maintaining an rc car and for the sale of the sanctity of this article we will go by that.

Are Cheapest Gas Cars Cheaper than Their Electric Counter Parts?

Unfortunately for the gas rc car lovers the answer is


Electric cars are much more economical than nitro and gas cars. Start up cost for electric cars are significantly lower than that of gas cars. Operating expenses for the electric powered machines are way below that of nitro cars. Given the soaring gas costs it’s evident that the electric cars will give more mileage per dollar as compared to their gas counterparts.

So if cheap is the buzz word for you and compromising with the flair and roar of a gas engine does not make you upset then I suggest go for an electric rc car.
