Now that you’ve bought your RC car here, how do you keep it running smoothly and looking its best? While there are some general maintenance tips to remember, the type of car you have will also determine what types of maintenance and care your RC car needs.

General Maintenance

One thing you should always do is to clean the body of your car after every run. This will help reduce dirt, dust, and other debris accumulating on your vehicle and prevent any damage to parts. Additionally, check for loose screws or parts on a regular basis and make sure to tighten them – a loose screw can cause a lot of damage if left unchecked.

Specific Maintenance

The type of car you have will determine what types of maintenance you’ll need. For example, electric cars require different types of maintenance than nitro cars. Some common maintenance tasks for each type include:

Electric Cars: Cleaning brushless motors, checking the battery voltage, checking for proper lubrication in the moving parts

Nitro Cars: Checking the fuel line, spark plug cleaning/replacement and fuel filter cleaning/replacement

By keeping up with regular maintenance on your RC car and taking care of it properly, you’ll be able to keep it in good working order for years to come.
