Here are 1/5 scale rc cars and trucks powered by 23cc to 26cc engines using regular gasoline or petrol. This makes it cheaper than 1/10 scale nitro. A tank of gasoline would usually provide 30 minutes of continuous runtime!

These big scale rc models are also easier to see. And with big bodies, racing is more accurate and realistic. 30 minute runtimes also lend to long races, more fun. There are many classes in 1/5 scale such as Formula 1, Touring Cars and the Bajas/Desert Trucks. There is even an IFMAR 1/5 th Scale I. C. (Gas) Circuit World Championship. 1/5 scale Formula 1

Popular are gasoline powered Formula 1 cars from FG Modellsport GMBH. Powered by 26ccm engine, speeds are nearing 60mph. Their competition model comes with lower alloy wishbones, FG viscous differential, alloy shock absorbers and more.
