The original Bigfoot began as a 1974 Ford F-250 pickup that was modified by its owner Bob Chandler beginning in 1975. By 1979, the modifications on Bigfoot were so extensive that the truck came to be regarded as the first monster truck.
Should you go with a nitro gas engine or electric powered?
RC cars split into two general types: Electric and nitro. Electric RC cars are simpler and less powerful. Nitro RC cars are (in all honesty) a lot more fun, much more powerful, and still affordable. They're powered with nitro gas (usually with 20% nitromethane content).
The more affordable quieter Electric powered RCs are the standard these days being the best bet for RC newbies. Powered by rechargeable batteries, these RCs can roll for about 9-12 minutes at time. It is always a good idea to have a few extra battery packs and a quick charger if you are going to be tearing up the race field for a few hours. The average speed of electric off-road RC vehicles usually varies between 10-50 mph while electric on-road vehicles can go between 15mph-100 mph!
Nitro RCs Require More Driving Skill
Nitro-powered vehicles run faster and are more difficult to control than most electric RCs. With high-speed driving there is a tendency to crash more often and hitting a wall at these speeds can literally destroy the RC vehicle. Because of the use of poisonous, flammable fuel and the dexterity needed to control such a fast-moving vehicle, they are not a good choice for children. If you are ready to venture into nitro-powered RCs, we recommend starting with a Ready-to-Run car or truck. Flying is more difficult than driving. Hold off on nitro airplanes or helicopters unless you are already an experienced RC pilot.

Gas powered nitro RC cars are fast, powerful, and crazy fun!
Nitro powered RCs are favored by most hardcore RC enthusiasts and are powered by a special type of gasoline called nitro fuel. You have to worry more about maintenance and tuning. Nitro RCs also control and maneuver more like their real life counterparts, so if realism is important to you, then nitro is the way to go! Most off-road nitro RC vehicles can go between 20-60 mph while on-road nitro RC vehicles can go around 25-80 mph! Nitro RC Trucks are one of the cream of the crop for RC enthusiasts.
