BUYING A NITRO
Nitro cars look cool. It’s a pride to own one and looks great on road
and off road. But they do cost a lost as well. Well, in order not to
land up with a piece of crap or spend way too much on a simple model,
some tips should be kept in mind.
For a beginner stadium trucks or monster trucks can be great fun. But
monster trucks are not as fast as stadium trucks. Nitro Stadium trucks
nail down to 50-60 mph and can take huge jumps but tear up some asphalt.
Buggies are also pretty much like stadium trucks. HPI MT2 18SS seems
to be a pretty good truck. If you've never had a high powered nitro
or electric car before, you might want to start with a 4wd car. They're
much easier to control.
HPI kits are easy to use and readily available. They are fairly popular
too. Another plus point for the same is help for them is also readily
available. With an RTR kit you get a decent radio and the car for a
decent price. It is always advisable to find a manufacturer that has
good following. It leads you to find parts, hop ups, technical advice,
etc easily available. Parts for HPI kits are also readily available.
While buying kits there might some other things that need to be bought
along with the kit or separately. Most of the time, the kits come with
a car and a motor only. Some more advanced models come without motor
at all. The RTR kits usually come with a radio and actually do not require
much building up. They are like 97% completely built. On needs to buy
a nitro fuel though especially for the Remote Control cars. Keep a check
not to end up buying a Nitro Fuel for a Remote control Plane.
A glow plug igniter is also required. They come in various different
shapes and kinds but more or less all are same but some come with a
meter to show how much of fuel is left. A fuel bottle is also necessary.
They are not an absolute necessary but make pouring fuel into he tank
much easily than out of a one gallon can. Investing in a good air filter
is always a wise decision. This would make up all the necessary things
while buying a Nitro car.
Other handy stuff that may come in useful should be tucked in a fishing
tackle box. This would include things likes screw drivers, a cleaning
sock, needle nose pliers, some spare screws, glues etc. Put all these
things in bunch of slots to make it a little more organized.
If you have had some experience with RC cars earlier then build-it-up
kits are also advisable. Build-it-yourself and unassembled kits generally
have higher quality stuff and one can put own stuff along with the engine
and other stuff. This is more advisable for people who have already
had some equipment and move from one model to another. So the cost drops
after the initial investment. This also helps to know your kit in and
out and makes you more familiar with your vehicle.
