Which remote control cars give the most hours of fun at your fingertips?

Remote control cars are great fun, whether you’re racing round the home or out in the open. And modern versions are more advanced than ever, as they get easier to use and faster, with better handling. So we tested eight radio-controlled cars to find the best all-rounder.

How we tested them

We tried our cars on a mixture of surfaces. Different cars are designed to work on different terrain, but we tried all of them on tarmac, as well grass and gravel, and top marks went to true all-rounders. Quick set-up was key, as were quality and practical factors such as ease of recharging the batteries. But above all, we were looking for fun.
