XRC RC-2 Petrol Buggy (Blue Body Shell)

Extended Description

Until now rc cars that run on actual petrol have been very expensive with prices starting at over 700 for a model including all equipment and electronics that made them a very specialist and exclusive product. We are pleased to say that XRC petrol buggies have now changed this and these great models are now available to everyone at realistic prices.

There are two main factors that have made this possible. Firstly, unlike other manufacturers, XRC make almost all the parts and engine in the same factory. Other factories will buy the engine from one place, the chassis from another etc, and then just put it all together which is a very expensive way of doing it. XRC are traditionally engine manufacturers and now make most of the parts themselves which saves a lot of money that can be passed on to you. The second reason is that due to the price being much lower and therefore sales being much bigger, they can be manufactured and imported in bigger quantities which saves on component and logistics costs.

Unlike nitro radio controlled cars these petrol ones run on a mix of normal unleaded petrol and 2 stroke oil. Both of these are available from any petrol station which makes them more practical and cheaper to run than a nitro model. Mixing the petrol is very easy as included in the package is a mixing bottle. You simply pour in some unleaded petrol up to the marker on the bottle and then top up to the second marker with the 2 stroke oil. This oil is usually found inside petrol stations with the other oils.

If you look at other 1:5 scale petrol cars on the market you will see even though they are more expensive they usually don't include everything you need and you have to go out and buy your own radio equipment, special 1:5 scale steering servo, electronics battery pack and charger. With the XRC package everything you need is included, even a high capacity rechargeable battery pack with UK charger and a tool kit with all the tools needed to maintain the buggy
