I have recently released some merch and some stickers full throttle, and you guys can check those out right here or i’ll leave a link in the description for you guys to go check them out for yourself. And if you want to pick up any of the products that you see in today’s, video or you just want to check out some technical specifications then make sure to check out the links down in the description below and i’ll list all the rc’s in this list. In the description, so let’s jump in to the top 10 best rc cars of 2021 revised starting off with cheap everyone loves the cheap rc car and for my top cheap rc car of 2021, i have to go with the wl toys: one: zero: four: zero: zero. One this awesome little 110 scale. Rc car can do up to 40 kilometers an hour out of the box and is fully ready to run, including both the battery and charger, and you can also get more batteries in just the one pack, as there are multiple options to choose from. But if you are on a budget, then you can just go with the one battery it’s super, durable, lightweight, dirt, cheap and fast everything you could want in a cheap, rc car. It also has a fully metal drivetrain, allowing you to easily upgrade to a super fast brushless system, without the need to do any modifications.
For example, a friend of mine, the rc masters channel link in the description below, has gone over 100 miles per hour by just adding a brushless system and changing the gearing that’s impressive. Next up, we have the best value rc car. This rc car has to be the best value rc car on the market right now, and that is the armor vortex 3s. The armor vortex 3s rc car is only a 3s, yet it’s still capable of up to 60 miles per hour stock out of the box. It takes the same chassis design as the other armor 3s lineup, which has proven to be an amazing chassis being durable, fast, cheap and a high quality brand like armor. So you know the pass support is going to be great. I would also say that the armor big rock was very close, but the armor vortex definitely takes its place as being the most valuable rc car because of the metal gift gears and the very, very similar price tag. So for the most vote for money, i would have to give this one to the armor vortex. 3S. Next up is the best rc crawler. Now this rc crawler may not be exactly new as it is the traxxas trx4, but it has a new release. The traxxas trx4 bronco 2021 edition with an all new clipless body, which i believe to be a first for crawlers, but don’t quote me, and it also has new wheels and body to suit the new 2021 ford bronco.
But as for changes, that is really about it. To the trx4, but i still thought it’d be worth a mention as it is the 2021 release and i still find the trx to be one of the best rc crawlers on the market, especially with its awesome portal axles and locking diffs, as well as a two Speed transmission, it really crawls over everything and tackles even the harshest terrain with ease go visit. I’Ll see you in the shed, so you can check out some of the older bronco footage if you want to see that in action – Music, okay, so this next one is awesome. It is the best roller rc car this one i’m super excited for, and that is the all new armor outcast extreme basher edition one fifth scale: rc car, the outcast 8s rtr was an awesome chassis, but it had its weak points, hopefully now with all those extreme Bachelor edition parts – hopefully the outcast doesn’t – have those issues anymore, like the bending of the chassis. Hopefully that becomes a thing of the past and maybe even come close to being the x max killer, but only time will tell now i have to congratulate army here, as i think one of the best series they have brought out is the extreme fascia lineup, like The mojave, the creighton and the outcast, allowing people like myself and i’m sure a lot of you guys watching as well the chance to buy a cheaper version of the rc car without the electronics, so that we can supply our own.
This fully allows us to customize it the way we want without spending an arm and a leg on an rtr to then just strip it all down and get rid of the parts that we don’t want. So massive props to armor – and i hope other brands follow your lead next up – is my favorite basher okay, so this one was not released in 2021 but, like i said i couldn’t fill the list, so i made it a part of our top 10 best rc Cars of 2020 list, because i still think to this day it is within the top three best rc car bashers and maybe even the best rc car basher that there is, but i guess, that’s definitely subjective. Anyhow, it is the traxxas max 4s. This beast is extremely durable in the four months that i’ve had it i’ve only broken a caster block from doing this and an arm from doing that. Oh and i’m, still using that arm that broke because it didn’t fully break, and that was the wide max arm which people have said would make it weaker. But in my experience it is just as strong. So, if you’re, looking for a fast ready to run, insanely durable, rc car with awesome, looks something easy to modify and customize than this rc car. The traxxas max is definitely for you. Oh mid break guys, remember, subscribe and check out the rc cars in the description below anyway.
Back to it now, the next one is actually a rock bouncer. The new axial riff is a 4s 110 scale, rc rock bouncer, and it is an awesome looking one at that featuring a strengthened tube chassis design, all spectrum, smart electronics, front and rear solid axles, active vehicle stabilization licensed interco, tsl bogger tires and race line wheels. All this combined with long traveling shocks, makes it an awesome rock bouncer, rc car, oh, and it also comes in a cheaper kit version, so you can choose to either build it yourself or you can get the rtr version which comes ready to run out of the Box, it is totally up to you. Next up, we have is a drifter for this one. I went with the all new zd ex 07, an absolute mammoth of an on road rc drifter, boasting a whopping 18 miles per hour or 130 kilometers an hour out of the box on stock electronics, wow. That is super fast competing with cars like the armor, infraction it even comes with a super long range radio known as the dumbo rc radio that can go up to about 400 meters in range and has a built in gyro. Now one of the bad things about the ex007 is the esc, which was a bit of a downer as a lot of people are having this same problems with their esc’s burning out. After only a few runs. But there is some good news: zd make a roller version of the ex 07, so i’d highly recommend buying a roller ex07 until they fix the issues and just putting in a max 8 or max 6 combo i’ll leave some good options for that.
In the description below next up is the best on road rc car, and that goes to the traxxas 4 tech 3.0, comparing it to the fortec 2.0. It is much longer. It also has larger tyres. It’S also fully licensed corvette stingray body, which looks incredible. Oh and it’s, slightly wider, and so with its increased width, you’re, going to gain a lot more traction around those tighter corners and with the longer wheelbase you’re, definitely going to be a lot more stable when it comes to doing high speed runs, like i mentioned earlier, With the trx4 bronco, i love clipless bodies and the four tech 3.0 has a new clipless body design over the old vortech 2.0, which is still a clipped body design. So that is definitely a massive win in my books and that’s. Why the new traxxas, 4 tech 3.0 wins the best overall on road rc car i’m. Seeing this lately mentioned a lot more on youtube and becoming a lot more popular, and that has to be drag racing so i’d have to give a mention to the traxxas, drag slash for those that don’t know the drag flash was originally a mod done by the Community now traxxas has made it a lot easier. As now, you can just buy the drag slashes instead of needing to buy all new parts and doing it yourself. It’S, ready to run super fast comes with an adjustable wheelie bar a lower center of gravity, chassis for extra stability, and you even get a drag mode to turn off the tracks of stability mode when you’re using it in competitions.
So definitely definitely a big win and last but not least guys we have my favorite large scale, rc car, the traxxas x maxx. Now i think you all knew it was coming. But for me guys, the traxxas x maxx has to still be the best large scale. Rc car, i know of now maybe the exp outcast will take its place. But for the moment the x maxx is still king. Only time will tell it’s super durable it’s fast, with speeds of up to 50 miles per hour out of the box and with the 150 scale rc car that 50 miles per hour really shows and the whole year i’ve owned. It i’ve barely done anything to it. It’S, just a few mods it’s, just really good the way that it is, although now i’m starting to want a lot more power and speed, which is why i’m doing a video very soon i’ll. Leave that link right here at the top right hand corner as i’m. Going to be putting in a max 6 combo and sending it now as far as i’m aware it’s, the only large scale rc car made from nearly all plastic, which is where it actually gets its durability from as it’s lighter than most in its scale. Not only is the plastic more wear resistant and doesn’t break as much it’s also a lot cheaper to manufacture. Therefore, the consumer, you and i don’t have to pay as much for spare parts when it does break now.
Here are two honorable mentions number one. This isn’t even a car, which is why it’s only an honorable mention, but it is the vector sr 80 pro speed, boat, it’s fast running on 4s. It is big at over 800 millimeters in length and it’s really cheap something. I highly recommend that you guys check out i’ll leave my review of that boat up in the right hand, side corner, i highly recommend you go check it out. Boats are something that i thought would be a little bit anticlimactic, but it definitely changed my mind once i gave it to go. Number two would be the armor mojave exb. Now this isn’t a 2021 car like the max or the x max, but i had to mention it because i’m being a little bit biased because it’s an rc car that i really want to get in the near future and do a few projects on i’ve got Something actually quite a big plan for it. So now is a good time to hit that subscribe button, so you don’t miss it. When i upload the mojave is a 1 7 scale short course truck. It comes in both ready to run form factor, and it also is in the exp edition.
