It’s no secret, we LOVE Redcat Cars!
We honestly believe that for the money, Redcat is the name to beat if you want the get into RC Cars. You’re getting your start with a quality vehicle that’s got plenty of room to grow with you.
The BLACKOUT Series is the best way into the RC hobby. You can pick whatever body style you want, and the parts will cross over! Aside from a few aesthetic differences between bodies/bumpers they are identical as far as parts are concerned!
All Blackouts come ready-to-run with either:
Brushed motors with NiMH batteries
Brushless motors and LiPo batteries.
You can always step up a brushed motor to a brushless one, but if you feel the need for speed, and you want something that can last, buying brushless off the bat is the way to go.
These cars are a perfect start because they come with waterproof electronics and FOUR WHEEL DRIVE!!! Once you’re spoiled on 4×4 you will never want to step down to 2WD, so why waste your time with a 2WD car that you’re going to immediately outgrow? It’s easy to upgrade from a brushed motor to a brushless motor if you want to go faster, but if you want a four wheel drive car, and you have a two wheel drive car… you’re going to have to buy a new car.
Beat-em-up, hop-em-up, bash-em, race-em, grow-with-em, they’re a perfect package, at a perfect price!
