Hi guys, Its Lincoln and today I’m going to introduce you to the world of rc racing
First of all, this hobby is not just about how expensive your car is, it’s also about how well your car drives on its intended terran. Also skill. Don’t forget about skill. For example, if you live in the city like me, you should get a car that can handle mild terrain, but is relatively low to the ground and fast. But, if you live in an area with a lot of rough terrain you may want to get a 4wd car with a large ground to bottom distance.
This is an example of a good car for rough terrain. It has four wheel drive and a good suspension.
This one is better for street or track racing because it is low to the ground and fast.
Another factor in buying a car is what company to buy from. Here are some that are good.
- Hpi Racing
- Team associated
- RedCat Racing
Some rc cars come in kits that require certain parts, like a steering servo and a battery. I suggest asking your local dealer for information on what parts you may need. Or you can do some research online.
Here is an example of an rc battery.
So, now you got your car and you know how to drive it. Now all you have to do is drive it! Your can pretty much drive it anywhere as long as you don’t disturb the peace. However, an rc racetrack, long empty sidewalk or skatepark can be perfect for racing.
Here is an example of an rc racetrack.
Well, that’s all for this week. Tune in for special two-parter article about aquariums next week, or whenever I do this again!
