RC is used to describe “remote control” and “radio control”. Remote control cars first came about in 1960’s. The first cars went on sale were produced by an Italian company. The cars were called Ferrari 250LM. They were imported to Britain and were available to the public in December 1966.
In 1970’s, more companies jumped on the band wagon including the British company Mardave who produced and sold nitro and gas powered cars to the locals in Leicester in the early 70’s. The technology evolved and engines went from single to double. And then in 1974 the very first electric remote control cars hit the markets.
The 80’s witnessed an explosion of RC cars and more people cottoned on to them and bought them. The technology was evolving all the time with companies producing newer models with advanced components, offering more speed and better controllers.
Enthusiasts joined organized races and the hobby was at its most popular. It was in the 1990’s when RC cars were so expensive that many enthusiasts can just race in car parks and waste lands. This was the time when companies brought out mini RC cars. The sizes were on a scale of 1/10 to 1/12 to 1/18.
Today the developments of RC car include models which can perform stunts like real cars. You can create your very own bespoke car, choose the tires, the fuel and the color and anything you want. They are still very popular and enthusiasts can still go on organized races if they want. You can buy them in any toy shops or online stores. Enthusiasts can join online communities and social networking sites where they can meet and arrange races with other enthusiasts. The great thing about these cars or any remote control toys is that they are fun for all groups of people and ages.
