The craze for nitro RC cars have transcended from kids to adults. These highly enjoyable cars, basically built for kids’ enjoyment and play have been making a huge buzz in the world of adult gaming as well. To run this type of RC cars, nitro fuel, a mix of nitro methane, methanol, and oil is used and this particular blend allows the car to run very fast (up to eighty miles per hour on a good day), almost as fast as a real life-size car. While nitro-fueled RC cars is sure to give users great fun, taking up the hobby of nitro RC cars require commitment and time. This is because this particular type of RC cars needs regular maintenance, fixing, and cleaning; all of these are needed to ensure that the nitro RC cars will always be in its optimum performance.

Maintenance and care of nitro RC cars are not very complex and are indeed, easy to learn. The first thing that you need to be aware of is that several adjustments are often needed to new nitro RC car models. Even if you buy a nitro RC car in a per-factory set, it is needed to be fine-tuned on a regular basis to ensure that it will run as expected and properly. To do fine-tuning; simply turn the needle a millimetre in the counter-clockwise direction each time you use your nitro RC car.

These cars may be used for racing or simply as a toy for little children to play. In this sense, choosing the right car is very essential. Where you’re going to use it such as the track and the track’s venue is also a factor to consider when making a nitro-fuelled RC car purchase. For example, if you’re going to use the RC car strictly for indoor use, then purchasing an electric-powered RC car may be a better option. If however, you are looking for speed and it will be used in outdoor tracks, which are more flexible and have no limitations as to the size of the car, then the purchase of a nitro RC cars will be a good move.

One problem that is tackled by people when it comes to these babies is on how to set them up, adjust the engines fuel and air settings in order for it to run smoothly and be at its best all the time. In quintessence, should the mixture of fuel and air be improperly set up, then your RC car simply won’t be able to run as it should, and may even lead to its early demise. Nitro RC cars are very complex vehicular toys, and it is for this reason that it is highly preferred by those who are fond of motors and car customization. The fours characteristics of the nitro-fuelled RC car always stand out: nitro fuel, realistic air filter, presence of an exhaust pipe, and superior horsepower. Because these cars can be cooled while running, they are able to run for longer stretches than their electric counterparts. However, note that over usage of a nitro engine may lead to engine overheating and combustion.
