Tire Wear On Your RC Vehicle

The issues you need to notice and understand about you RC tires are as follows:
Tires, just like on your vehicle you drive wear over time. They develop cuts and tears, and the lugs wear and round over through use and time, especially on you RC Crawlers and Monster Trucks. You should pay attention to the forward leading edges of the lugs and watch for wear, while at the same time noticing the essentially non-wear of the rear leading edge of the lugs.

Nice Sharp Edges For Plenty Of Grip 

Tires grip the best when they are new and the lugs are sharp. Once the lugs begin to wear, "You'll notice more slippage and spinning." That's when it is time to rotate the tires. Once the edges of the lugs are rounded off on both the front and rear lugs, then it is time to think about putting on a new set and using those just replaced for playing around and goofing off.

Rounded Edges Allowing For Slippage 

A new set will assure the grip needed and can be the difference of scaling that obstacle without the fear of breaking your RC crawler or RC monster truck that you have put some much time and money into because your running on insufficient tires.

All About RC Trucks

One of the best things about childhood is the toys and the older you get the better they get. Remote control cars and so on are fabulous fun whether you play on your own or with a group of friends. They can give hours of entertainment and keep the kids, and sometimes the husbands, out of trouble.

There is no limit to the variations in cars, trucks and so on that are available to buy on the market today, twenty odd years ago it was a far different story but now we are inundated with choice and variety. There are sports cars, vintage vehicles and even formula one cars, in addition to this you can have trucks and all-terrain vehicles.

The possibilities for this past-time are endless and the fun by no means has to stop once you grow up. There are numerous groups in every country that meet to discuss and show off their latest toy and they also perform races. So you could take part in a formula one race, an off-road rally or even a monster truck derby.

These fun filled cars are simply scaled down models of the original, in many ways they have all the same details and are capable of relatively similar speeds, when you consider their size that is. You wont find a RC car that can do 200mph but one has been modified by a professional RC car racer and has broken his own world record for the fastest RC car. Previously it stood at 134mph, now it is at a staggering 161mph.

The average top speed of any RC vehicle depends greatly on what it is based on, an off road vehicle will not go as quickly as a road based one but the off road version can be a lot more fun. Some off road designs allow he car to flip and run up-side down and the wheels can even change shape to enable to the get out of tricky places.

There are many places where you can purchase RC cars and trucks, shops sell them and there are countless places online that stock them but if you are looking for something more than just a toy for your child then you need to consider spending a little more and visiting an specialist shop or internet site.

Whether you go to a physical shop or find a great site make sure you speak to someone about your requirements so they can talk you through the models that have and what they can do. That way you can be sure of getting an RC vehicle that does what you want it to, and that it is suitable to your level of experience.

There is no point getting a super fast race car and smashing it up in the first day you have it, listen to the sales person and follow their suggestions. If RC racing is going to become a permanent hobby then you need to take the time to build up your knowledge base and experience with the slower and easier to control models before tacking the big boys.
