By Javed Khan Subscribe to RSS | March 23rd 2012 | Views:

Spending on these little beauties is considered to be a great investment for Nitro RC Cars collectors; this is because these cars may not only be used as a past time but for entries to RC car competitions as well.Nitro RC cars are manufactured with its design serving as a focal point and at the same time trying to lower costs of production. For this reason, car parts for nitro-fuel powered cars have standardized electronic components that are consumable and disposable in cases where they wear out because of constant use. This is exceptionally true for Nitro-powered RC cars that are bought ready-to-run in contrast to those that are built manually.

Graded RC cars are very susceptible to damage and in some caseswhen one part of these graded car malfunctions; there is no other choice than to throw the entire system away. Some, if not most, nitro RC cars however, function more like a real car and give owners the ability to be able to replace only the malfunctioning part and keep the rest of the system. Aside from this, most nitro-powered RC cars are able to perform exceptionally in RC competitions since they run at about 50 to 60 miles per hour, sometimes even going to eighty miles per hour, and have they capacity to be controlled over long stretches of time and space.

Owning nitro RC cars means that you have to be willing to commit and do some car maintenance on the vehicle on a regular basis to ensure that it will always work optimally and smoothly. The basic maintenance protocol of RC maintenance dictates that regular air filter cleaning, replacement of worn out clutch, and over all chassis cleaning are needed to keep the your car in top shape. Aside from all of these, regular and correct after-run lubrication must also be practiced before storage to ensure that the car is ready for its next use. By quality, these cars are generally expensive and time costly to maintain, so you really need to be committed and prepared to spend some money.

You should also note that these cars might need its engine rebuilt or replaced by the time that you have run through eight fuel gallons. This is because the engine might be losing its compression by wrong tuning or engine overheating. To enjoy your RC car for a longer period of time, remember to always have it well maintained.

Although nitro RC cars come in the size of a normal toy car, remember that nitro RC cars are not meant to be played or used by children under the age of 12, unless under proper adult guidance and supervision. This is because nitro RC cars use an alcohol-based fuel that is highly combustible and flammable and may cause serious damage when mishandled. Aside from this, these cars run at speeds that mimic real-life cars and may cause serious damage when they crash on to something. Safety and precaution must always be practiced to prevent any untoward incidents from occurring.
