Customize Your Radio Control Car With A New Aftermarket Replacement Body

One of the most satisfying aspects of the radio control car hobby is the ability to customize your vehicle to your individual taste. Adding a different style body with a unique paint scheme is surely the most dramatic cosmetic change a car owner can make to his RC car or truck. Lots of owners have converted their RC cars and trucks to resemble their ’real’ daily driver, race car, pulling truck, classic car, or even their favorite Nascar.

One of the most satisfying aspects of the radio control car hobby is the ability to customize your vehicle to your individual taste. Adding a different style body with a unique paint scheme is surely the most dramatic cosmetic change a car owner can make to his RC car or truck. Lots of owners have converted their RC cars and trucks to resemble their ’real’ daily driver, race car, pulling truck, classic car, or even their favorite Nascar.

A body change can be accomplished both cheaply and easily with the readily availability of replacement bodies which can be found either at your local hobby shop or online. The most popular bodies are molded in clear lexan and are easily painted the colors of your choice from the inside of the body. This allows the lexan itself to act as a protective clear coat, thus guarding your fancy paint from scuffs, scratches, and chips caused by the inevitable mishaps. You can acquire custom decals to add cool graphics or even make your car look just like Dale Earnhart Jr’s #8 or Tony Stewart’s #20! Your imagination is the only limit.

Any hobby shop or craft store will offer for sale a selection of aerosol paints for you to chose from. I have also found that the ’base coat’ paints left over from our auto body business work very well. Using these automotive paints gives us the ability to mix any wild color imaginable or to perfectly match an existing real vehicle. However, these paints require you to have access to spray equipment such as an airbrush or a small ’touch up’ spray gun and an air compressor. Note: Always wear an approved respirator and only spray paint in a well ventilated area away from ignition sources. Paint vapors are highly flammable and toxic!

Most better quality replacement bodies come packaged with paint masks for the windows, but you will want to have some masking tape on hand for striping or tutone jobs. The new body will need to be trimmed, so you will need lexan scissors or an exacto knife. A drill is required to make mounting holes and a hole saw is very useful for making your cooling holes for nitro powered RC cars. A piece of fine sandpaper should be used to smooth all freshly cut edges. Yes, lexan can be sharp. Please be careful using these potentially dangerous tools! Get instruction on their proper and safe use if you are inexperienced. Bleeding on your RC car is not a cool way to customize it!

A little creativity and some effort will reward you with a truly unique RC car or truck that will awe your friends and provide you with a super hobby experience. Enjoy!

 

Electric Radio Controlled Cars – The Recommended Choice For The Newcomer

One of the first decisions for the newcomer to the world of radio controlled cars is whether to buy an electrically powered or a nitro powered car.

As a general rule, electric radio controlled cars and trucks are the best choice for the beginner since they tend to be simpler, quieter, cleaner and easier to operate. The trade-off for this simplicity and ease of operation comes in the form of cars that do not have the realism and the power brought to radio controlled cars by nitro engines, but it is undoubtedly a wise decision to cut your teeth with an electric model before tackling the complexities of nitro power.

Electric radio controlled cars use battery packs to power both the motor and steering and these are normally recharged using either a 12-volt car battery or a mains powered charging unit. Batteries run for between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on the type of engine in the car, and re-charging usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes. Because of this, it is highly recommended that you buy at least two, if not three, battery packs to allow for more or less continuous running.

At first glance, electric radio controlled cars can appear to be much less expensive, but the cost of such things as additional battery packs, a battery charger and other accessories, will often bring the final cost of an electric car close to that of a nitro powered car. Naturally, the long-term cost also depends on the model of car that you purchase and the type and quality of battery pack that it requires, as well as how often you run the car.

The main difference between electric and nitro powered radio controlled cars is seen when it comes to maintenance. Though the cost of battery packs can be high, their care and maintenance is relatively easy when compared to the work involved with changing air filters, tuning, fueling and attending to a variety of engine parts on a nitro powered car.

As mentioned earlier, electric radio controlled cars are not as powerful as their nitro powered cousins but, nonetheless, modern electric cars are still more than capable of holding their own on the racing circuit. Perhaps more importantly however for the beginner, they provide a quick and easy answer to getting up and running and to learning the ins and outs of model car racing, without the steep learning curve, and often frequent frustration for the newcomer, provided by the complex modern nitro engine.

Many beginners are tempted into buying a nitro powered car because, in addition to simply running and racing the car, they also want to build their own car and mistakenly believe that this is only possible if they purchase a nitro powered vehicle. This is not the case.

Both nitro and electric powered cars come in kit form with complete instructions so that you can build your car from scratch. Admittedly, electric car kits are less complex and an electric car is easier to build, but this is still not an easy undertaking for the beginner and is certainly a challenge.

At the end of the day the choice is of course yours but, as with many other hobbies, if you rush in and try and achieve too much too quickly you often meet a host of obstacles and frustration and end up walking away feeling that it was perhaps not all it was cracked up to be. Radio controlled car racing is an exciting and rewarding hobby, but it will take time to master, so choose the simple route in and enjoy the speed and fun of racing your electric car before moving on to the added thrill and excitement that comes from nitro power.

 

Radio Controlled Cars – A Model To Suit All Needs

Whether you choose the simplicity of electric radio controlled cars or the realistic sights and sounds of nitro rc cars, one major decision the newcomer is faced with is just what type of radio controlled vehicle will best meet his needs.

Whatever you choose, think carefully about just how you will be spending your time with your new hobby and balance this against your current level of experience. Here is just a taste of the options open to you.

Whether you choose the simplicity of electric radio controlled cars or the realistic sights and sounds of nitro rc cars, one major decision the newcomer is faced with is just what type of radio controlled vehicle will best meet his needs.

Whatever you choose, think carefully about just how you will be spending your time with your new hobby and balance this against your current level of experience. Here is just a taste of the options open to you.

On-Road vehicles.

On-road cars are undoubtedly the most popular type of radio controlled vehicle. The standard for on-road radio controlled cars is the 1/10 scale model, although 1/8 scale models are also commonly seen. With the recent influx of micro and mini rc cars, there are now also a number of hobby quality on-road cars as small as 1/18 scale.

Both electric and nitro radio controlled cars come in on-road versions, and can be purchased either ready to run or as self-build kits. Built and geared for speed, on-road radio controlled cars should be your choice if you plan to race your cars.

Off-Road vehicles.

If you want to be able to run your radio controlled cars just about anywhere, you'll definitely need the rugged construction of an off-road vehicle. These sturdy cars and trucks will handle hills, uneven terrain, jumps and even sand. Available in two or four-wheel drive versions, off-road vehicles can be driven in your back yard, a vacant lot or just about anywhere you like.

Like their on-road counterparts, off-road radio controlled cars can be purchased ready to run or as self-build kits and there is a wide range of both electric and nitro cars, as well as trucks, for you to choose from.

Although they are not the fastest cars available, off-road rc cars are durable, rugged and can be run practically anywhere.

Buggies.

These durable little vehicles are powerful enough to handle on and off-road terrains with speeds of up to 60 mph and are becoming increasingly popular. Although buggies can be great fun, for a wide choice of models, you will need to buy your buggy as a self-build nitro kit and this can be a lot to handle for the beginner.

Airplanes.

Radio controlled flyers also feature amongst the most popular and exciting of rc vehicles. Electric and ready-to-run versions are the most accessible for the beginner, though of course there are nitro and self-build kits available to allow for growth and customization.

Radio controlled airplanes are extremely light weight, and can be made to fly at very low speeds. The electric versions are also quiet enough to be run in a school yard, which makes them a great option for the newcomer to the radio controlled scene. If you wish to include competition as a main element of your new hobby though you should be aware that there are many fewer competitions run for rc airplanes than there are for rc cars.

Helicopters.

Though perhaps a little too complicated the beginner, radio controlled helicopters are both exciting and challenging to fly. They are normally run on gas, and can be great fun for the more experienced hobbyist.

Boats and Watercraft.

Available in both electric and nitro powered versions, radio controlled boats are normally only available in kit form and the need for waterproofing adds an additional level of difficulty. As a result, boats and other watercraft are not recommended for beginners but, once you become familiar with the workings of radio controlled vehicles, you will find boats and other watercraft possibly the most fun of all to build and race.

Although it is very much a personal choice, the newcomer would be best advised to start with ready-to-run, on-road electric radio controlled cars and, once he is familiar with the basic art of running and racing rc cars, he can then move up in stages towards his preferred model.
