It’s a well known fact that many automobile enthusiasts first taste of speed was done through the guise of a remote control car. Over the years I’ve had just about every variety of gas and electric cars you can think of. And even now, at four decades old, I find they’re still a helluva lot of fun. As kids, these RC cars taught us about counter steering, throttle control and overall suspension behavior. Things that many adult enthusiasts fail to ever learn about. In short, not only are these little machines fun, but they have the ability to educate the crap out of all those little petrol-heads who one day want to get behind the wheel of a real car.
