SEVEN WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR CAR'S PERFORMANCE

Hello again. For those who have already bought rc cars, hope
your are having lots of fun. If you need more speed, here are
seven ways to make your car go faster.

1. Ball bearings - these will reduce a lot of friction in the axles
and transmission. Expect 10 - 20% increase in speed.

2. Using lightweight parts - graphite chassis, aluminum screws,
titanium drive shafts will make a car lighter. This results in faster
acceleration, top speed, reduced motor wear, and longer battery
life. Expect a 5 - 10% increase in speed.

3. Improve suspension and car handling - oil filled shock
absorbers, tuned springs, and sway bars will help your car go
faster around corners, and handle a lot better, especially on
rough tracks.

4. Faster steering - a high-speed steering servo will help your
car react faster to steering inputs. 

5. Faster electric motors - modified motor provide a great
speed and power boost over the stock Mabuchi 540 motor. A
mild 24 degree motor may push your touring car to 30 mph,
while the highly modified 10 turn motors push electric touring
cars near 40 mph.

6. High capacity batteries - racing quality NiMH battery packs
are made of individual cells that have been matched, so that
each cell provides the same power and discharge curve as all
the other cells in the battery pack. This ensures maximum power.

7. Electronic speed control - replacing the stock mechanical
speed controller with a budget electronic speed control (esc) is
already a big plus. ESC provides smooth throttle control and
precise braking capability. Budget ESC can handle 19 turn
motors, while high capacity ESC can handle the hotter 10 turn
modified motors.

In the coming weeks, I will talk about each speed tip in detail.
