Great beginner Radio Controlled cars

Our favorite beginner R/C cars are made by Traxxas. The Bandit ($179.99), Rustler ($189.99), Stampede ($199.99), and Slash ($229.99-$249.99) all come ready-to-run with 2.4GHz transmitter, 8.4V battery,  and quick charger included. They feature water-resistant electronics, great parts support, and 30+mph speeds out of the box. The included charger only plugs into an automobile’s 12V accessory outlet, so a wall adapter is available for the charger for $26.99. For even more performance, we carry the brushless versions of these vehicles as well.
