RC race cars on road and off road

Fast RC cars are available in a wide range of sizes and styles. Browsing through the complete Horizon Hobby® online catalog of RC vehicles, you might think that the largest number of remote control cars are made for off road use on grass, dirt, rocks, sand, and other rough terrain. That’s not surprising, given that off road RC car and truck manufacturers prioritize durability. Toughness is a must for anyone who simply wants to “bash” their RC vehicle, as most modelers do whether they’re beginners or have hobby experience.

On road RC race cars are just as popular for racing as off-road vehicles, however. The main difference is that on road RC cars and trucks are made to race down smooth asphalt roads and similar tracks. Many RC racing classes exist specifically for on road radio control cars and trucks. They’re especially popular with RC enthusiasts who put speed and realism above all else.

RC race car classes for on road RC cars

Several classes of competition are available for 1/10 scale on road RC race cars. Electric touring cars are the definitive fast RC cars, hitting speeds of more than 50 MPH as they tear around the track. Electric rally cars are essentially touring cars with different wheels and tires, plus a rally-inspired body. RC touring car and RC rally car racing both have strong appeal for drivers who enjoy detailed scale looks as well as high speed.

RC drift cars like the 1/10 scale Redcat Racing Thunder Drift are rapidly growing in popularity. In full-scale racing as well as in RC car and truck racing, drifting is a turning maneuver in which you purposely oversteer to make your car’s tires lose their grip on the surface. Drifting contests consist of drivers battling to earn style points from spectators and judges. It’s done mostly for thrills and is a skill that takes some time to master.

RC drag racing is also becoming a favorite form of on-road competition. That’s due in part to how easy it is to get started with ready-to-run RC drag cars like the 1/10 scale Losi® Ford F100 22S No Prep Drag Truck 1/10 scale Losi® Ford F100 22S No Prep Drag Truck. RC drag cars race down a 132-foot long strip, which is a 1/10 scale version of full scale drag racing’s quarter mile long track. The RC drag racing class has gained fans for two reasons. One is that finding a location to race is very easy. A quiet parking lot or area behind a warehouse will do. The second reason is that at organized RC drag racing competitions like King of the Streets in Las Vegas, it’s possible to win a nice cash prize!.

RC race car bashing

RC race cars can also be used for bashing. The only significant difference between RC racing and RC bashing is that racing involves a “professional” track and the drivers follow specific rules and regulations. Bashing, on the other hand, is just for fun. There are no rules to follow and no winners unless you want them.

Bashing allows you to push the limits of your RC race car. When competing in an official race, you won’t be able to put every feature of your RC car to use. With that in mind, an ideal RC bash vehicle should be both sturdy and capable of incredible speed.

Not coincidentally, the slogan of ARRMA®, one of the favorite Horizon Hobby bashing brands, is “Designed Fast, Designed Tough”. ARRMA offers a wide variety of RC cars and trucks with brushed or brushless power systems. Many are “all road” models, meaning you can run them on road or off road. You can choose from ready-to-run (RTR) all-road vehicles like the 1/8 scale ARRMA VENDETTA as well as roller vehicles such as the 1/7 scale ARRMA LIMITLESS that you can outfit with the electronics of your choice.

RC race cars such as these are perfect for creating your own contests. Invite a few friends over with their vehicles for high jump and long jump competitions. All you need is a ramp. Challenge each other’s speed capability in a 100-yard dash. Nothing more is required except sufficient space. Attach a rope to competing RC cars for a tug-of-war — first one to pull his or her opponent across the line wins. Hold contests to see who can sustain the longest wheelie.

Bottom line, competing with RC race cars of any type can take many different forms. Use your imagination and have fun!
