We’ve all been there – wondering past the car lot showroom, hoping our lucky numbers are coming up to make that dream of owning a lustworthy supercar a reality. But if you’re still dreaming and no closer to that heart-pumping Bugatti, don’t fret! When a remote control car like the Traxxas Ford GT 4TEC 2.0 4WD will cost you a few hundred rather than the tens of thousands the real deal would, an RC car compromise suddenly doesn’t feel all that bad a deal.

 So, which is the best remote control car for you and your family? Are you looking for some off-road, monster-trucking action? Some rubber-burning, tarmac-chewing RC car madness? Or a kid-friendly roadster to whizz around the living room?

  New report cites one reason in particular that Apple’s iPhone will have a truly exciting year in 2020 Even though we're still almost a year away from the release of Apple's next iPhone lineup, details about the 2020 iPhone 12 lineup are already piling up -- such as the fact that next year's lineup looks to be the most expansive one that Apple has offered yet. One simple reason: 5G. “We believe iPhone 11 is just the front end of this current ‘supercycle’ for Cupertino with a slate of 5G smartphones set to be unveiled in September that will open up the floodgates on iPhone upgrades across the board that the Street continues to underestimate,” write the Wedbush analysts.

Lego and RC double-whammy of fun

 Holy DIY dream drive, Batman! Lego and the Dark Knight have been a match made in heaven on more than one occasion, and this RC Batmobile is no different. From the mean streets of Gotham to the carpets of your living room, this Bluetooth-controlled racer (once constructed) makes use of two motors and four-wheel drive, and is armed with two dual-stud shooters to take on a villainous Lego minifig rogues gallery. 

Taking its cues from the 'Tumbler' Batmobile in the Christopher Nolan films, it’s a great gift for kids, letting them get creative with the Lego build options, while also giving them something fun to race with once all those blocks have clicked together. The Penguin won’t know what hit him.

We’re talking 40km/h top speed, three stage differential gear, an independent suspension system and rubber tyres to withstand hours of off-roading. Best thing is, the battery lasts up to 40 minutes, giving you way more play time than the smooth machine up top.

99% complete in the box

The FTX Banzai is a fantastic entry-level option. It comes 99% complete in the box, but there’s enough for you to play around with to feel like you’re really optimising this car’s performance when you’re out on the track. It’s the drifters that want to take note here; we’re not saying it’s going to be easy to get the hang of, but once you do, and you familiarise yourself with the adjustable suspension system and shock absorbers, you’ll be the smoothest racer on the track.

6. Sphero Cars Lightning McQueen

With robotic suspension and a chatty moving mouth, it’s the movie come to life

Best for: Young drivers | Type: Bluetooth RC | Engine: Electric

The most emotive car you'll ever see

There are faster cars on this list. There are more powerful cars on this list. There are arguably cooler cars on this list, too. But are there any that bring as much pure joy to kids? Based on the hugely popular character from Pixar’s Cars, the Sphero Lightning McQueen is quite unlike any other RC car you’ll have seen before. Controlled by an app steering wheel over Bluetooth from your mobile device, it’s as much a robot as it is a child-friendly racing machine.

The spitting image of the emotive character from the films, the racer features animated eyes (through an LCD windscreen) and a moving mouth in its bumper, alongside reactive suspension that lets it move like a living thing rather than your standard static car. Shouting out catchphrases as it drifts around corners, it brings Lightning McQueen to life in a way no other toy could manage. And, with a comfortably brisk top speed of 6mph and a 30m range, it’s the perfect entry point into the world of RC cars for your youngsters.

Build two different cars with the same parts

Combine your loves of both Lego and remote control cars with the Lego Technic. Choose between building two designs– the sporty looking traced racer or the RC Off Road truck– and take it off road, where you can spin it, turn it and clamber over obstacles. You can drive forward, backward, left and right and perform 360 degree spins. Why not build your own obstacle course? And you can even race it with its speedy motor.

You can pipe dream about owning a real one, but when it comes to it, this replica, sadly, is about as close as you’re going to get. With an RRP of just under £30, this is great first remote control car and with its xenon headlights, working rear lights and a decent max speed that should offer just the right blend of exhilaration and control, it will give you some serious kudos when you’re racing your mates, too.
