1. Immoso Mud 4×4 – The all terrain beast RC truck!
This baby can take it all. When it comes to cheaper RC trucks within a tight budget you have to look for the ones that can outlast all the torture of uneven surfaces. The mud 4×4 is built with that on the mind. It’s got a four wheel independent suspension system that keeps the internal electrical components protected inside. The truck comes with a 2.4 GHz wireless controller that enables you to effortlessly race up to 35 meters without any sort of interference from others. Being a little on the heavier side, this truck can reach speed up to 15 kilometers per hour. This may not be racing friendly but it will surely teach you how to roll a RC truck. We recommend you this truck if you are looking for a decent off roader RC truck within a tight budget. To know the other models carry on reading.

2. Remoking – Best Military RC Truck with Wi-Fi HD cam and Snow Wheels (Recommended)
If you raise your budget a little more, this RC truck with a built in Wi-Fi HD camera can be yours. We really liked the way this truck has been designed. Another great thing that we noticed about the truck is its hydraulic shock absorbers. Where other trucks come with a strong spring, Remoking has taken it to the next level and came up with something that actually work like the suspensions of a real car. Now, most of the RC trucks face a difficulty while fighting with deep snow and as most of the RC trucks are gifted on Christmas, things become really complicated. With that in mind, they have even added snow wheels on the set so that kids can have fun with their RC trucks on all weather and on all terrains. You remember the movie Home Alone 2? The RC truck fitted with a gigantic camcorder? Yes, with this Remoking RC truck you can have the similar experience. The controller comes with a holder for your phone and maneuvering the truck with the help of that phone screen can really be a unique experience as the truck can also be controlled with your phone! Yes, you heard right.
- Comes with a built in Wi
- Fi Camera
- Can be operated with the controller and with phone

3. Rainbrace RC Military Truck – Collectable Vintage RC Truck!
For those who are in collecting RC trucks, this one is a must keep. The Rainbrace RC military truck is a 1:16 scale replica of a 2nd world war military truck built with attentions to the smallest details. You can even open the doors on this thing to check out the speedometers, dashboard, steering wheel and the gear stick on this thing. The truck can have speed up to 25 kmph and more importantly you can put loads on the truck and send it to places up to 40 meters away. This truck may be a replica of a vintage model truck but it surely comes with the goodness of 4 wheel drive making it a decent climber and a true all terrain vehicle. Also, it has a great runtime but takes a little more time to be charged up. It would have been really great if there were better suspensions fitted on the truck.
- Vintage 1:16 scale replica built with attention to details
- Powerful, fast and has long lasting battery
- Reasonably priced
- Should have had better suspensions

4. RC Monster Trucks Jeep Wrangler – Jeep Wrangler in its mini form
Jeep is a symbol of classic American automotive greatness. The wrangler is perhaps considered as one of the top models manufactured by Jeep. If you are a Jeep fan and a RC truck collector then this is a must keep for you. Another great thing that you should take note about the Wrangler is that, it’s really cheap. The whole thing is beautifully illuminated what makes the wrangler really beautiful at night. Otherwise, this is more of a collectable and we have reports of this breaking down under severe off-roading. That’s why try not to drop it. The color also seemed too flashy. The manufacturer should have added the new generation 2.4 Ghz controller for longer and less interruptive control of the truck. However, when you will see the price of the RC truck, you will be very much amazed and it also comes with all the required batteries.
- Represents a Jeep Wrangler
- Fun to play with
- Nice details all around and inside the truck
- Could have been more durable

5. RC Chargers Ford F 150 – Ford Replica Truck with Wi-Fi Cam [Recommended]
This one is also another fun thing to play with. If you are looking for a RC truck that is not for racing only and can have fun with it then look no further and get this one. The price is a bit more than average RC trucks but the Wi-Fi camera feature makes up for everything. More importantly, the camera is not too flashy and delivers good footage also, making it an ideal tool for spying on your friends. We liked the looks of the truck and it actually looks like a Ford f 150 truck which is just great. You can also separately buy the VR gears with this thing and that would make things more interesting. If you are looking for the best gift for your kid then this is it because the models that are going to discuss about on the later section of the article are about some serious hardcore racing RC trucks.

6. Gizmovine Truggy – Best Cheap Go Anywhere RC Monster Truck
This one here is one of those real all terrain RC trucks that can take anything coming on its way. Another great thing about the truck is its price which is really great. There are plenty of other RC trucks available on the market that are really cheap but they are just too Chinese and as all these trucks are made of complicated mechanisms and electronics we have decided to exclude them from the list. Where there are models like this one having decent independent suspensions on all the wheels. They are there to protect the internal components from getting damaged while facing the challenges of off roading and uneven terrains. This is a RC truck you can have faith on. It’s a great off roader in one hand and a speedy one as well. Although, it takes a lot of time to get charged up.
- Good level of suspensions
- 200 ft connectivity
- Great Price
- Longer Charging Time

7. Redcat Racing Volcano EPX – The Entry level Wheelee Popper
Now we are entering the realm of RC truck racing. We should clear some things here too. You already know what this article is titled. Yes, it’s only about trucks. When it comes to racing RC cars are more preferable as they have less air drag but we could also find some great trucks for racing as well. The biggest benefit of them is the space that you get as your engine bay. Trucks leave more room for upgrade but if you think about upgrading your RC truck engine we highly recommend you to get professional help. To begin your journey in off road racing with RC trucks, you should probably start with something like this. The Volcano is just too perfect to know the fundamentals of real RC car or truck racing. This should be your entry point. The truck is so powerful that if you can power it up properly then it can even flip where with the provided battery, it can pop up wheelees anywhere anytime.

8. Team Redcat TR-MT10E – The Master Flipper for Trickstars
For those who like to do tricks with their RC race trucks, this is for them. This baby can just go anywhere with its powerful motor and gigantic wheels the TR-MT10E is an absolute beast that can tackle any depth of mud, dust, sand and we think if it had slightly bigger wheels it surely would have trusted over water as well. However, we liked the way the key components were waterproofed on the truck. The overall design is very much durable and that’s why it takes less care from your side. Also, this one’s not like those 11 volts ridiculously fast making it controllable for everyone. If you wanna be the trickstar among your friends then this is the truck you should be getting.
- Best for doing wheelees and flips
- Really tough and fast
- Nice Waterproofing
- Doesn’t include a battery

9. ARRMA Outcast – Best RC Stunt Truck with Beautiful Looks!
This one is simply a beast. You know the tuner cars? Fast cars made faster with updates and the supercars that come with more speed and power out of the factory? This one is a supercar on that sense. The Outcast is so powerful that it can hit more than 50 mph right out if the box. Before you read any further we would request you to check the price of the beast. We are sure that this is not for armatures and neither it’s just a toy for having fun. The new suspension update makes it the best RC truck for performing stunts. Performing tricks already pretty difficult with the fast RC cars and trucks but this one sets the bar high for all others. The 2050kV brushless motor is just overkill and with the BLX 185 ESC and 6S Lipo makes it unbeatable. This one is a 1:8 scale truck making it the biggest one on our list. So, if you want your friends to envy your RC truck then this one should be your weapon of choice. The Outcast will make all others taste dust when it comes to racing. Just imagine with the right upgrade what this speed beast will turn into!
- Crazily Fast
- Made for performing tricks
- Beautiful looks and Extremely Tough Built Quality
- Too hot to handle

10. Team Redcat TR-MT8E – Simply the Best Monster Truck
The TR MT 8E should be the most ideal definition of monster! Yes, once you see it in action we are sure that you won’t be getting any other monster truck. The truck is ready to intake the power discharge of a 6S battery right out of the factory and on its stock condition with ample amount of room for upgrades. The best thing is that it’s fast, scarily fast. Even after being a trickstar that can outperform all of its rivals and still it will win the race of speed irrespective of the terrain. There are tons of technical features on this truck that you can only get with the over five hundred bucks price tag. We aren’t gonna brag about its greatness anymore, we can simply leave that up to you. The controller however is a bit difficult for bigger hands and we should also note here that if you haven’t ever handled the sheer power of a 6S battery then this one is not for your or you would probably need a few days of experience to get the hang of the truck. But don’t worry, this baby can even roll upside down!
- The fastest on stock condition
- The most durable one on the list
- Tons of space age technical features inside
- Spares and upgrades are hard to come by
