Top 5 Best RC Vehicles for Professional RC Racing

We looked through the entirety of RC Superstore’s diverse catalog to find the best remote-controlled vehicles for Pro RC Racing. While there were several models we were hesitant to cut from the list, the following five cars are considered the best of the best.

5. LaTrax Teton 4WD RC Monster Truck

LaTrax Teton 1/18 Scale 4WD RTR RC Monster Truck

With a composite fiber chassis that plays host to a fully independent suspension, this 4WD offering from Latrax has a body that’s built to last. A powerful speed control, along with its receiver, are mounted directly to the chassis.

This reduces the risk of experiencing any kind of disconnect, even if you’re starting to push your vehicle to the limit. Without a doubt, this feature makes the Teton stand out for pro RC car racing.

4. Traxxas Slash 4×4 RC Truggy

Traxxas Slash 4x4 VXL Brushless RTR Truck LIPO COMBO PACKAGE

This vehicle is somewhere between a truck and a buggy. This means it has enough miniaturized horsepower to take corners while still being able to motor into curves without too much difficulty.

Traxxas’ design team did their best to strike a balance between maneuverability and speed, but it’s not a compromised vehicle at all. New and veteran professionals alike with appreciate its exceptional handling and competitive velocity.

3. LaTrax Desert Prerunner 4WD RC Truck

Prerunners, at least in the prototype, are designed for use by those who want to get the feel of a course. LaTrax tried to capture the same sort of feeling with this 4WD RC truck.

Those who want to experiment with new course configurations or are just learning to race on a professional level will certainly appreciate this vehicle. The built-in 7.2v NiMH battery pack will help see you through to the finish.

2. Traxxas Rustler 4×4 RC Buggy

With the ability to move at a genuine rate of 60MPH, this Rustler model should be able to go toe-to-toe with even the highest end gear. Though it comes ready to run, professional racers will find that they can make a number of custom tweaks to get even more performance out of it.

It even features an onboard detector that will notify you if the voltage is starting to drop in the included battery pack. This empowers you to stay in the race for longer and get back on the track more quickly.

1. Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer 4WD RC Truck

Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer 4WD Brushless RTR RC Truck w/LED Lights Factory-Installed

A set of lights comes preinstalled from the factory on this model. While that’s likely what you’ll first notice, it’s hardly the only special feature it comes with.

The vehicle’s engineering was based around an authentic 4WD truck, which gives it a very unique driving dynamic. Those who are looking to dramatically change the way they take to the course will like the way it corners, but the Desert Racer doesn’t perform badly on straights either.

It’s a great pick for those who want to drive on complicated courses that have twists and turns, going in multiple directions, but don’t want to sacrifice their top speed. For dominating any course, the UDR is hard to beat.
