XB2 2017 Carpet Edition 1/10 2WD Buggy Kit by XRAY Review Vs Toy Grade

 

XB2 2017 Carpet Edition 1/10 2WD Buggy Kit by XRAY
However, if toy-grade rc car breaks, it is pretty hard, if even possible, to find spare parts because most of the time these models are made from one piece, and they have only one electronic circuit board. On the other hand, toy-grade rc cars can prove to be very easy to maintain because if you take any other rc car of the similar size, you have a great chance of using its parts. As you can suppose, toy-grade radio controlled cars are made primarily for beginners and kids. They have pretty weak motors, and they can develop speed from 8 to 24 km per hour. Also, they typically have the ability of going to go only left, right or center, and this can sometimes make them hard to control. So, if you want affordable rc car that is easy to maintain, than you should definitely check out XB2 2017 Carpet Edition 1/10 2WD Buggy Kit by XRAY .
