Professional grade nitro-powered RC buggies feature a fully independent suspension, large rear spoiler, lightweight chassis materials and specially designed tires primarily used for off-road racing. Nitro RC buggies utilize either four-wheel or two-wheel drive transmission configuration. Like many other nitro RC vehicle design types, RC buggies are available in several different scale sizes. Learning how to properly start your nitro-powered RC buggy will help promote safety and vehicle longevity. Exercising proper starting methods will also reduce the time it takes for engine to start successfully.
