Everyone is different. Some like to fly “low and slow” and prefer cruising over racing. Others, however, love “high and fast” and want to experience speed.
And even adults like to play with toy cars!
Remote Control Cars for Every Style
If you’re a grown-up that loves driving RC cars and loves to drive fast, you’re not alone. In fact, one of the driving goals (pun intended!) of remote control car manufacturers is to build in as much speed as possible.
How much speed?
Well, according to the online buyer’s guide from Android Central,
“The Traxxas XO-1 is the fastest RC car, full stop. The largest brushless motor on offer propels the car from 1 to 60 in 2.5 seconds. Not only is this car stylish, but it also reaches speeds over 100 miles per hour.”
Okay, so maybe an RC car whipping around at 100 mph might be a bit much for most folks. There are plenty of “super-fast” remote control cars available for adults. And not every RC car has to be a “car.”
There are drift cars, drag racers, 4×4 trucks, monster trucks, and more. And, as you might imagine, they’re not all built for speed. Take rock crawlers, for example. These little monster trucks are not that fast because they’re designed to overcome all kinds of terrain obstacles at low speed. Their speed range is between just several mph and 40 mph at maximum.
Drift racers are also a bit more specialized. Drifting is a racing form in which the driver uses throttle, brakes, clutch, gear shifting and steering input to keep the car in a condition of oversteer. In the RC equivalent, drift racers are built specifically for high performance and speed.
RC off-road racers, however, are a sort of “hybrid” style. They are designed for rugged conditions but are made for speed. Wikipedia describes them this way,
“The cars are designed for running on dirt and more recently, carpets and artificial turfs; both featuring jumps. The buggies feature independent suspension, long-travel shock absorbers, and covered transmission and radio compartment to keep them running in extreme conditions.”
And this is just a taste of the wide variety of remote control cars designed for adults.
Built for Speed – Fast Remote Control Cars for Big Kids
Here’s a brief overview of some of the fastest of these remote control cars for adults.
The Traxxas Stampede RC Monster Truck®
One of the best-selling RC vehicles we offer is the original high-performance monster truck, the Traxxas Stampede. Its well-known ruggedness has made the Stampede name identified with off-road fun. The Stampede’s bold look and innovative features are complemented with more power.
With a top speed of over 30 mph and a high “drive-over-anything” ground clearance, the Stampede rips through grass and powers over curbs. The waterproof electronics allow it to plow through puddles and blast snow for RC adventure in all seasons
The Tornado EPX PRO®
The Tornado EPX PRO 4WD brushless ready-to-run electric buggy is both affordable and high performance. It comes equipped with a 2.4GHz radio system. It also has a powerful high torque steering servo and several blue anodized aluminum parts.
A 3300KV brushless 540 motor is included along with a 60A LiPO ready brushless Electric Speed Controller and 3500mAh 15c LIPO battery. This provides superior precision and power needed to blow you away with speeds up to 50 mph.
The completely adjustable suspension provides smooth performance for any terrain and is fully able to handle all that power. A quick-release dual-stage rear wing creates rear downforce for added high-speed traction and stability.
HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 Flux RTR Ford GT LM® Heritage Edition
The actual Ford GT brought back the look of the GT40 racer that dominated Le Mans from 1966 to 1969. It was designed to celebrate the Ford Motor Company’s 100th year anniversary in 2003.
The incredible Ford GT helped launch the “retro classics” era of modern supercars. Now it can be had on the HPI Racing RS4 Sport 3 chassis and painted in its ultimate classic racing livery colors.
Fitted with color-matched wheels, this car is not only great to look at, but is ready to reach blazing speeds with its FLUX power. The powerful 4000KV brushless motor can power the car to speeds over 60 mph! All you need to add is a suitable car battery and charger!
