The Electric RC car makes use of battery to work; it is battery that is powering it that is why it is regarded as electric powered car. It is easier to use and it is quieter to use as well when compared to the other type the nitro powered. There are two versions of electric radio control car. There is the off road and the on road version. The off road version has a speed limitation just like the on road version but the speed of the on road version is better than the off road version. None of them can compare with the nitro powered radio car in terms of speed and efficiency. The battery life of the electric radio control car is short. Normally the batteries run down from 10 to 15 minutes of usage while the battery charging can take up to 30 minutes to be completed. One therefore needs to buy extra battery to be able to operate this type of RC car. If possible one should have a charger available to charge the batteries anytime it runs down. This type of radio control cars is easier to use than the other type; that is why it is advisable that beginners have to start with this type of car before he matures to use the more advanced nitro powered RC cars. This type of radio control cars can be purchased and assembled as whole or the parts have to be purchased differently to be assembled later. There are different types of batteries that can be used which affect the performance. One can research the types of batteries available and make a choice.

A lot of information about nitro powered RC car has been shared already. It is known that it is superior to the earlier type in terms of the speed and the efficiency. That is the reason it is recommended that one has to start with the battery powered RC car before moving to the nitro powered car. The cost of buying and maintaining the nitro powered car is more than the cost of running and maintaining the battery powered RC car.
