Let's look at some of the best radio control trucks we can buy at local hobby shops or online internet stores. Starting from the cheapest to the biggest and baddest remote controlled trucks. Price are estimates in USD.

The smallest models are usually the cheapest. Below are ready-to-run. Speeds are around 10 - 15mph out of the box. Fast for such small scale.

If you prefer 1/10 scale, I would buy 4x4 short course rc trucks. More expensive than 2wd short course, but the extra enjoyment is worth it. Speed of around 25mph out of the box. Fast enough to keep you excited. Below are RTR prices and usually with brushless electronic equipment.
