Maintaining you RC Nitro Cars

By Javed Khan Subscribe to RSS | March 15th 2012 | Views:

Like a regular, real life car, RC nitro cars are in need of regular maintenance. If you don’t give it the maintenance it needs, chances are it won’t perform on the racetracks as it ought to. Regular RC nitro cars maintenance will also help you save a lot of money and time in the long run.

Remember that RC nitro cars engines run on a fuel that is a combination of oil, methanol, and nitro methane. As such, it is very important that you use only the proper combination of these three elements on your car. If you find at any given time that your car is not running on its optimum speed, it may be well caused by poor or the wrong fuel combination. You should also take care to check your car’s fuel lines for cracks because they may cause your engine not to work. To avoid these, check the fuel lines before every race ad remove all the dirt or any residue before use.

Another important component of your RC nitro cars are the air filter. Air filters help keep the car’s engine clean from dust, debris, and any form of dirt. Keep in mind that a working air filter equates to a smoothly running car, so be sure to remember to clean it regularly or maybe even after every use. If however, you find that you will be unable to give it a proper cleaning, then don’t try to do it yourself and have a toy technician do it for you.

You should also look out for bad tires. Never try to race with your RC nitro cars on a bad tire. Make sure that you always check them before launching. You should also take extra measure to ensure that you have the right tire type for your car. This will make sure that it will run smoothly.

Setting up RC nitro cars can indeed be a little bit tricky. In fact, setting one up will prove to me more tedious than setting up, say, and electric RC car. However, when you get to have your nitro engine running, you will be given more freedom in making adjustments that will improve your RC car’s performance. For instance, you can customize your car’s carburetor and determine yourself how much air and fuel you want to be used by the car’s engine. But then again, you should always take care when you do any customization to your car because if you do anything wrong, then it could lead to its early demise.

Note too that if you haven’t used your toy car in a while, it is very prudent to have it tested and tune it first so you can make sure that every important component is clean and everything is fully functional. Take care to check for clogged parts, loose screws, broken components, and debris.

Always remember that good maintenance of your RC car is important, and if you don’t do this, you may only be spending more. Keep it in good condition, and you won’t have to spend a lot of money for repairs.
