Boys are greatly fascinated with toy cars, especially when they are young. As they grow up, they tend to like big things or something real, for that matter. The attention will then be diverted from wanting to control toy cars to actually riding and driving a real one. But if somehow the child within you wants to go back to nostalgic days, where running cars can be controlled by handheld remote controls, however you are too big for those little cars you've once played a long time ago; then why not try the following remote control cars that are creating buzz among adult men.

One is electric, which uses electric motors and is rechargeable (might be the type boys are using before, albeit the design and the motor undergone drastic changes nowadays, which go with contemporary style and new technology). Another is nitro remote control cars. These are considered more identical with real cars- as per speed. It uses nitro- fuel. And lastly, gas remote control cars. It is basically gas- powered. The first two have been among the hobbyists' favorites over time, but the last is gradually being famous as well.
