Your RC Nitro Cars and After Run Oils

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

If you are in a hurry after playing for hours with your RC nitro cars, you may forget putting in after run oil when it’s time to put the vehicle away. Only to find on the next time you wish to play that something is extremely wrong with your RC nitro cars and learn that your engine has fallen to what hobbyists termed as the Sudden Engine Death Syndrome of SEDS, that may have been caused by rust and corrosion around the piston of the car engine, rendering them useless way before their time.

This mishap would have been easily avoided if you care to spare a few more minutes to put on after run oil in your RC nitro cars engine before putting them away for storage and closing up shop. This is exactly the reason why many hobbyists, toy enthusiasts, and veteran RC racing pros consider after run oil to be your RC nitro cars engine’s best friend. It is common knowledge that when the cars are on the run, the temperature inside the engine spike and changes dramatically fast. This change in temperature ultimately leads to a formation of moisture inside the engine, which when ignored can cause to rust development and corrosion around the pistons of the RC nitro cars.

You should also note that the fuel used by RC nitro cars has the tendency to attract moisture, and even if your car stops running, you may be sure that some unburned fuel is left in the engine. So where is this going exactly? Well, the moisture inside the engine will result in rust and this rust will be more like a sand paper burning up your car’s piston before you can even say ‘go!’.

The problem with the car’s fuel is that methanol (an alcohol) absorbs water and in turn will mix with the nitro and make a corrosive compound that can lead to the sudden engine death syndrome. Before you resign yourself to hopelessness however, all this may be preventive by using after run oil in your toy vehicle after each and every run. These oils may be bought in a local store, hobby shop, toy store, or hardware. So whenever you’re done enjoying your afternoon leisure with your car, simply empty your tank of its fuel and add after run oil. This will help your car prolong its life, and keep you happy for longer.

A word of the wise: if you get any fuel from your car’s engine after running, don’t put it back in your fuel’s container. That will be simply foolish because it will cause contamination all of your unused fuel, and that will be very un-smart.

When it comes to your after run oil and the engine that powers your little monster of a toy, it will always be an spend for it now or spend on it later kind of deal, and it will simply be cheaper to spend on after run oil than changing the entire engine.
