REMOTE CONTROL CAR TIPS

* Use rubbing alcohol to clean wheels and tires before gluing.
Alcohol does not leave an oily film as some cleaners do.

* Try using contact cement instead of CA when gluing tires.
Later on you can remove tire by soaking in lacquer thinner for a
couple of hours.

* Store tires in resealable (zip lock) plastic bags to keep them
fresh and sticky.

* Use thread lock on all metal to metal fastenings.

* For trucks or gas cars, use a fast and strong servo to steer.
Get at least a servo with 40 oz.-in. of torque.

* For 1/8 scale gas buggies, use at least 40 oz.-in. torque servo
for throttle / brake, and at least 75 oz.in. torque for steering.

* If you have a smooth driving style, slower servos are good. If
you have an aggressive driving style, then you need high speed
servos.

* Electric cars, simply let of the throttle and the car will turn. But
for gas cars, you will have to tap the brakes to turn, especially
when running off road.

* Avoid using CA glue to repair cracks in Lexan bodies, it will
make the Lexan brittle.

* For hard to medium dirt or clay conditions, try "Fuzzie" off-
road tires. For medium to loose dirt or clay track, try tires with
coarse spikes.

CHRISTMAS RC WISH LIST

Nothing beats having the right equipment. Here is my wish list.

1. Temp Gun - Great for gas cars and trucks. You can fine tune
your nitro gas engine, and even use the temp gun to check tire
and track temperature.

2. Ungar Soldering Iron - If you run electric models, then a high
temperature soldering iron is a must. Good for soldering motor
leads and for building your own battery pack.

3. Tire Truer - For 1/10 and 1/12 scale on-road racers, a tire
truer is a must. Allows you to true a tire to the correct diameter.

4.Commutator Lathe - For electric racers, restore the power of
your motor by periodically cutting it with a lathe. Get better
performance, less brush wear, and longer run times from your
stock or modified motor.

5. Airbrush System - If you love painting body shells, nothing beats
the quality you get by using an airbrush.
