Question Nitro RCX

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Just wondering if anyone can tell me about the quality of the Nitro RCX buggies/SC cars? Are they just cheap chinese knock offs? Just curious, my son has expressed intrest in these and i don't know much about the cars as I am a plane flier!

Cheers, thanks

Re: Nitro RCX

Yes they are cheap chinese knockoffs but... better than the quality you'll find in most toy stores. Depends on what you want/need/can afford.

If you can afford it a traxxas is best, highly durable, easy to get parts and very popular (for support).

If you don't want to pay traxxas price then...
Helicopters: Walkera(10?), Esky(3), Blade(5), Align(7), Miniature Aircraft(2), Hirobo(2), Mikado(2), Century(3), Thunder Tiger(4), Gaui (5).
Trucks/Cars: Tamiya(8 ), Traxxas(6), HPI(1), Losi(2), Ofna(2), Thunder Tiger(2), Hot Bodies(1), Axial (1).
Boats: 4
Snowcat: 1 Kyosho Blizzard (electric)
Snowmobiles: 2 x Polaris (toy grade), art attack electric

Re: Nitro RCX

I have a couple of their cars... The are not that bad. Prices are good, and quality is not that bad either. All rc's have problems it you push them. Parts break not matter what vehicle you get.

What you may want to look for is a local parts source for your vehicle.

Also, NitroRCX will not ship the 1/5 scales to Canada. They claim it is too big for USPS.

They also do not ship via UPS.

Once you get the vehicle, make sure you order some parts for it as well.
