Remote control racing

If you’re new to the world of remote control racing, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Where should you buy your first car? What’s the difference between a Buggy and a Truggy? What’s the value in a parts kit? Here are just a few tips for making sense of the madness.

1. Take Baby Steps

It might be tempting to splurge on a high-end truck and immediately send it careening down a track, but if it crashes because of your inexperienced handling, that’s money wasted. Take the time to familiarize yourself with your car before you start spinning it. Buy a brushless model or one fitted with a learning mode.

2. Consider Your Track

When trying to decide which car to buy, one of the most important things to keep in mind is the track on which you’ll be racing your car. If it’s a short course, you won’t need something with high, top speeds that will never be fully reached. On the other hand, if the track is large or unwieldy, you’ll want a truck with good ground clearance and precision steering.

3. Buy Complete Kits

Some shops will force you to buy RC components individually, but that’s a waste of money and labor that could be better spent elsewhere. Instead of shopping for single pieces, look for a store like Traxxas Parts. They offer convenient and inexpensive full kits for a variety of RC cars.

4. Stick With Electric Cars

Nitro cars may have inspired you to pick up the hobby, but they aren’t very good for new drivers because of the fire risks involved. You’ll need some experience under your belt before you’re ready to move up to real fuel, so stick with an electric car for your first few races.

5. Think About Type

From rumbling monster trucks to sleek, silent F1 models, there’s no limit to the number of RC cars on the market. However, if you don’t understand their specs, it’s probably best to cut your teeth with one of the beginner models like a Touring or Rally. They’ll break you into racing the right way.

These are just five tips and tricks for first-timers to the track. There’s plenty more that you’ll need to know if you plan on furthering your RC racing as either as a hobby or moneymaking venture, but these tips should be enough to get you started.
