R/C Scale Size
A 1/10th scale rc car means that it is one-tenth the size of the real car. A 1/8th scale rc car means that it is one-eight the size of the real car.
Remote control cars come in many sizes such as 1/24, 1/18, 1/12, 1/10, 1/8 and 1/5. The 1/24th scale is small, the 1/5th scale is large.

Gas Powered Remote Control Cars
The most popular models today are the 1/10th scale nitro powered rc touring cars, and the 1/8th scale nitro remote control monster trucks.
These are powered by 2-stroke gas engines that use special fuel (nitro, methanol, castor oil).
Out of the box, gas powered remote control cars are faster that electric rc cars.
Electric Powered Remote Control Cars
The most popular today are the 1/10th scale electric touring cars.
Also equally popular are the 1/24 mini and 1/18 micro rc cars.
Ready to Run (RTR) Radio Control
To make it easy for beginners to get into the hobby, manufacturers have produced kits that are ready to run (rtr). Most of these kits come assembled and completed with radio, batteries, and charger.
If you are a beginner, I highly recommend you buy ready to run r/c kits.
