RC Cars and Accessories

RC cars come in all sizes, shapes and categories. In the Robitronic online shop you can choose between RC trucks, crawlers, off-roaders, on-road models and much more. No matter if you are looking for a RTR buggy for the terrain or you prefer to try DIY with a kit, you will definitely find it.

RC Vehicles

Remote-controlled vehicles, also called RC (radio control) vehicles, are not just a miniaturized version of another vehicle, but also an authentic, realistic replica of body styling, livery and performance. If you buy a RC vehicle, you will notice on the box the scaling indication. This refers to the size of the model compared to its original model. For example, a 1:8 scale buggy is eight times smaller than the size of the real vehicle.


If you're new to the world of RC vehicles, you'll quickly find that there are many different scales, the most common being 1:6, 1:8, 1:10 and 1:12. However, there are also much smaller scales, with 128 and 1:64 being the most typical. Vehicles in the scale 1:5 and 1:6 are also called big scale models.

It should be noted that two vehicles of the same scale may differ significantly in size since the scale is given in relation to the full size of the original. So a 1:10 sports car is smaller than a 1:10 monster truck.

RC Cars

At first you might be overwhelmed by the large selection of RC cars. There are many vendors and different types of cars, so you may have trouble finding the right vehicle for you. This little guide will help you to get a brief overview of the various models. Basically, there is a distinction between on-road and off-road RC cars.

On road-Models

The on-road models include the classic touring car and the drifter.

Touring cars are most likely to be compared with conventional road cars. They are the fastest among the RC cars and, like their big role model, are best for paved roads.

Drift cars are an alternative for RC fans, for whom speed means the ultimate driving pleasure, but are bored by touring cars. In contrast to these, drifters are equipped with smooth tires. To drift, the curves are approached at a high speed.

Off-road Models

RC cars do not have to be fast to be fun. Offroader  are designed for difficult terrain and adverse conditions also offering driving pleasure.

Buggies are actually a mix of on-road and off-road cars and are therefore good for people who have difficulties deciding. They are agile and relatively fast on smooth roads. They can also handle terrain, but are very slow due to the low wheelbase.

Anyone looking for an action vehicle for jumping is better advised with a monster truck. Due to the enormous ground clearance and the oversized tires, rough terrain is no problem for it.

The Truggy is a combination of buggy and monster truck and a real all-rounder: It has the maneuverability of the buggy, but is also suitable for jumps and runs easily on various terrain. It can be controlled on smooth roads as well as through mud or off-road.

Crawlers, also known as scalers, are a unique challenge even though they go really slow. As the name implies, a crawler is designed to climb on rocks as well as on steep hills. It's about slow, controlled and precise speed to overcome challenging obstacles and barriers.
