If you are looking to buy your fastest RC car ever, here are the best 5 super fast RC cars that you would want to get your hands on.
Super Fast RC Cars Overview

1. Traxxas XO-1 1/7 Ready-To-Race RC Car
If you are looking for speed, the Traxxas XO-1 RC car is the fastest RC car you can buy. Reaching 100mph, the Traxxas XO-1 comes with Big Block brushless motor that provides blistering acceleration and true supercar performance with the largest brushless motor ever offered in a Ready-To-Race model.
The Traxxas XO-1 RC car has great control and doesn’t wobble at great speed, thanks to the Traxxas Stability Management that allows arrow-straight acceleration on slippery surfaces without loss of control.
The XO-1 hits 60pmh in just 2.3 seconds, and maximum speed of 100mph in just 4.92 seconds, thanks to the Traxxas XO-1’s front splitter and canards, smooth under tray, rear diffuser and wing that work in harmony to harness airflow and convert it to downforce while minimizing drag—critical to achieving 100+mph speeds.
2. Traxxas 1/8 Funny Car Ready-To-Race
The Traxxas Funny Car is a detailed production of a nitro burning NHRA Funny Car, and is modeled after NHRA professional driver Courtney Force’s Ford Mustang car. This RC car is designed to race like its much larger cousin in 1/4 mile drag races.
Armed with a ET – 2400 brushless motor and ET – 3s brushless power system, the Traxxas Funny Car hits up to 70+ mph. However, the Traxxas funny car is not designed to operate like conventional race cars. Designed for drag racing and to go all out in a straight line, the Traxxas funny car does not turn sharp and have a specific operating function.
The body of the Traxxas funny car is very light yet robust. It continues to function even after sustaining some damages from collisions. Just like the actual funny car, the Traxxas funny car’s body lifts up too, revealing a great tubular frame.
We found the pinion gear in the transmission to be the weakest point as it was easily broken, thankfully though replacement parts can be easily found. However, if you break the vehicle in correctly and don’t abuse the RC car, you are unlikely to end up breaking the pinion gear.
3. Traxxas 1/10 E-Revo Brushless
The Traxxas E-Revo Brushless has an average speed of 60 – 65 mph and comes with the MXL-6 setup. Running 6s LiPo batteries will get the power revving, however the drive shafts aren’t cut out for the power this truck can produce with 6s LiPo so you should have some spare parts on hand.
This monster truck comes with Traxxas stability management, waterproof Castle Creations MXL-6s brushless motor system, telemetry sensors and is 2.4GHz TQi radio controlled.
4. Exceed MadDrift Brushless Drift Car
The Exceed MadDrift Brushless Drift Car is ready to hit the streets right out of the box, packs a long list of features and flaunts a distinctive look that will leave the competition in the dust.
The high performance 540L 2150KV brushless motor and an 80A Brushless Hobbywing electronic speed control powers the Exceed MadDrift Brushless Drift Car up to 60mph. The car features an aluminum chassis, aluminum shock towers, aluminum steering Ackermann, and aluminum front and rear chassis braces. Oiled filled shocks and the included sway bars keep the car in control during hard cornering.
5. Arrma Typhoon Brushless RC Car
The Arrmas Typhoon Brushless speed buggy is packed with high-power features that enables it to hit up to 60mph. This buggy has a massive 6S LiPo battery that pumps through a waterproof BLX185 150A ESC, and combined with a BLX 2050kV brushless motor, pounds out force and torque to smash into all four tires when the throttle is hit. The car also comes with 16mm aluminum body, oil-filled shocks, and everything rides on a 3mm chassis.
While the Arrma Typhoon is advertised as 60+ mph, it does not actually hit 60+ mph right out of the box. You would need to purchase an additional pinion in order to get to that level of top speed.
The Arrma Typhoon 6S is also very durable and remains fairly undamaged despite bashing and abuse at full speed.
The wheels that come ready-to-race are decent, but don’t perform too well on short grass or loose gravel. The thread pattern is not wide enough and the lugs are not deep enough, hence the tires struggle on soft surfaces in order to have a good grip.
You are now ready to rumble with these best 5 super fast RC cars that will blow your competition away!
