Off Road Nitro RC Cars

Nitro RC Cars or known as Nitromethane nitro powered models are great fun, first invented in the late 1960’s by an italian engineer and from then developed into a mainstream hobby/sport and loved by millions. Introduced in the UK early December 1966, through an importer's motor books and accessories, St martins, London and early 1967 through Atkinson's model shop in Swansea.

Nitro cars work by burning a gasoline like fuel called nitro, which is made up of methanol, nitromethane and lubricant, that then will go into an internal combustion engine, and then sparked by a glow plug which is very similar to spark plugs in regular car engines, after that the car will then keep burning through fuel until there’s none left.

Off road nitro cars are great because they can be used on different terrains in all weathers, and best thing is that you can use them for dirt jumps which can be a lot of fun, build up great speeds up to 100 mph on either the road or a dirt track.
