Remote control cars are fun and exciting for people of all ages. There are many different types of cars, such as monster trucks, drift cars and short course trucks, just to name a few. The most popular among the younger crowd is the short course truck, or SCT for short. These are popular because they are inexpensive and very durable, and there are a lot of different parts you can get for them.

Next are the monster trucks, which are more popular among the adult crowd. They are harder to work on, and they are bigger than the other cars, with tall suspensions; they can go anywhere, and they also remind adults of the first RC cars of their childhood.

And last but not least is the drift car, which is most popular among the teens because they are modeled after real cars. They have RC drift meets just like the real drift cars. They can also be heavily customized with lights, bodies and aluminum parts.
