If you are new to RC Cars and the mere thought of tearing your new ride down for the very first time just makes you cringe, then you might want to check out the new Radio Control Car Manual by iconic automotive repair manual publisher Haynes. The book describes the types of radio control cars to choose from including ready to run vehicles and kits, on-road and off-road, cars and trucks, nitro and electric power. It then goes on to explain the tips behind building a car, assembly techniques and tools, setting up brakes, suspension and throttle, painting and detailing, applying decals and then leading on to show the best ways of maintaining a car from basic maintenance, checking for wear, adjustments, repairs, replacement parts and cleaning. It also explains how to improve your RC car’s performance from engine modifications, electronic speed controllers, up-rating motors and batteries, changing chassis and suspension settings, gear ratios and lightweight components for those who want to. Having achieved the building of the car, the book shows driving techniques from how the controls work, cornering, braking, jumping, racing techniques, channel settings for racing with other cars and finally designing and building a track from layout concepts to design and construction suggestions.
