The high speed could reach 40 km/h with the help of the strong motor. This will be a great off-road toy car specially made outdoors entertainment at the park, beach and camping activities.

I really love the grip they have added to the tires, it’s mostly recommended like in sand or dirt in my opinion as in asphalt it turns.

With the powerful motor, speed up to 30KM/H+, real experience with the high-speed Gears made of metal. More smoothly and don’t get stuck easily. This ensures high-efficiency rotation and longer lifetime than plastic gears.

Metal differential gear works together with metal transmission shaft. This help achieve difficult movements such as drifting

Suspension shockproof system, highly responsive steering and throttle with Hi-Q rubber wheel, anti-skid, perfect experience.

Independent suspension system is adopted with a helical spring with high resilience for each wheel, which creates an impressive damping effect and a more steady drive.

Before You Buy Remote Control Cars, Knowing the scale.

What is the meaning of the ratios written on RC toys, e.g., 1/12, 1/14, 1/18?

It is a proportional weight of the RC toy compared to its real-life counterpart. For example, a 1/12 model RC Car is 12 times smaller than the real thing, 1 on the RC car model is 12 weight on the real car. Still confused? You check more detail here and here.

Also, beware of the max speed and manufacture age recommendation, because some of the RC cars can be very fast and have a lot of remote models and they need to adopt the control before or they can quickly damage the toys.
