Handling RC Monster Trucks gives me a kick that I can rarely compare with any other experience.

RC cars are good but once you fall in love with a RC monster truck then you will develop a special corner for the big boy. Or at least that was the case with me.

Here I will give you an insider’s account of the amazingly fast, zippy and furious world of radio controlled monster trucks.

Are you getting started with RC trucks? May be you are new to the entire hobby of radio controlled vehicles. Or are you a seasoned expert looking for some quick reviews and heads up on the latest happening in the RC truck world?

Irrespective of which stage of your RC hobby you are in, this section of the RC Cars Hub site will be your friend, philosopher and guide as far as rc monster trucks information on the web is concerned.

To start with let us understand the various options you have with RC Trucks.

Nitro, Electric or Gas?

Based on the power generation method and fuel used RC trucks are broadly categorized into the following two categories

  • Nitro Powered

    RC Nitro Trucks like nitro run RC cars use nitro fuel to power the engine. Usually people do not differentiate between nitro fuel powered RC trucks and gas RC trucks. But then there is a little difference between both of them. Gas powered RC trucks are much bigger than nitro monster trucks. Moreover gas trucks use gasoline and the energy generation principle is by far the closest to actual cars that run on freeways.

  • Electric Powered

    The other category of RC monster trucks is powered by chargers that make use of electricity. Electric powered RC trucks are gaining popularity with the masses because of the ease of use. It’s all about zapping your charger to the socket and charging it for some time before you have hours of fun. It’s super easy and fast to get an electric truck on the track as compared to that of gas RC trucks.
