Many of the RC car makers have realised that their models can be complex to build for the first timer - yet you might not want a simple toy-like car just to play with.
So Tamiya, Perkins, FTX et al have created their own Ready To Run ranges - a kit-quality car, usually with full spares support, but ready to go from the box - making them great for Birthday and Christmas presents!
All "Hobby" grade cars can be dismantled for repair. All "Toy" cars are generally sealed models but more robust for younger children. Hobby grade cars are unsuitable for under 8's and require the child to be accompanied if under 14 years (by regulation, not our suggestion).
