Hello guys, Ryan here from rcreviewer, bringing you guys the next step(s) of the guide.
Type of vehicles : There are many types of R/C cars around the world. They can be broadly classified into –
1) On-road street car – These cars are the simplest on-road vehicles with usually soft compound tires. They are made for racing on asphalted tracks. But they are not fast enough. An HPI sprint will be good.
2) Drift car – These other type of on-road R/Cs which have slicks on them which makes them drift. It is good to buy a 4wd Drift cars. HPI drift cars are good with aluminum upgrades .
3) Rally car – These cars are off-road cars which just like on-road with a higher wheelbase a little bit smaller wheels.Traxxas Rally and HPI WR8 are good R/C Rally cars.
(HPI and Traxxas respectively)
4) Stadium Truck – These stadium trucks were the most popular during the period of 1990 – 2009. These are now literally getting “Killed” by S.C.T . But they are the best R/C trucks to start with.
5) Short Course Truck – Short couurse trucks are Stadium trucks with a body which covers the wheels. speaking of wheels, the wheel radius relatively smaller than stadium trucks.
6) Buggy – These buggies second third fastest on-road and slowest (while comparing other trucks) on off-road.
Electric R/C : There are two types of fuels in which R/C cars run – electric and nitro. Now we will discuss about electric R/C.
Electric R/Cs have a system which includes –
ESC (Electronic Speed Controller), Motor (brushed or brushless), Battery and Servo with shaft/belt/gear if it is a 4wd.
We will discuss about electronics in detail in the next part.
Until then, see ya and good bye.
