TIPS TO MAKE RC CARS RUN FASTER

Although it is very difficult to actually pin down as to what makes the RC car go faster. But a proper maintenance, cleaning, taking care of batteries or choosing right kind of consistent fuel etc help the cars to give optimum performance. If one keeps some tips in mind for taking care of the body, engine, batteries etc then the same can add extra horsepower on racing tracks. Further, only practice and lots of practice can give a driver proper maneuvering of the car and with that practice only the cars can perform to their best on the tracks.

Tapping all the holes with a 4-40 tap go about 3/4 length of the screw keeps the parts from stripping. Spraying out all bearings and re- oiling them with light bearing oil also helps. Parts should always be free such that nothing binds them.

Some attention should also be paid to the car setup. Concentrating on what your car is doing and what is it made up of will make you notice the finer requirements of the car that are required for its optimum performance. Using grease oil without grease works better with RC Cars. Hard and efficient gears are usually loud ones that give out lot of noise.

A smaller hole piston makes the car react slower, usually giving more traction but there is also a possibility that it will probably do everything else worse. Weight in front usually gives more on power steering but the car will change direction at a slower pace. But the bottom line is that it is legal to make your car as heavy one desires. It is preferable to have brakes turned way down so that if one panics panic and stab them hard it does not throw the car for a loop.

Tweak is the difference between the heights of the wheels relative to the ground (at the same end of the car). e.g. If the front left is lower than the front right the car is said to be 'tweaked' usually caused by a distorted or 'tweaked' chassis or unequal shock lengths. It is preferable to ride heights then set the tweak on the track. Then it is correct it should be set on a tweak board and see where it is then going back to that setting before each run.

Putting Coppertone and paragon on the tires also helps. Putting Coppertone on the tire after the paragon, tires are actually able to soak without the heat or sun drying it up. Put paragon on first then apply Coppertone on the surface. There after put paragon on only right on top of it as it has a tendency to dry up quickly. A fair amount should be used and let it sit for 15-25 mins then should be wiped off like normal.
