RC car or truck maintenance is critical to the productive life of your RC electric or nitro vehicle! What a time we had at this weekends RC wheelie bash! After the event it was a critical time for all who participated. Yes that’s right, performing the proper maintenance on our RC cars and trucks. RC cars and trucks require regular maintenance so take heed and try this maintenance routine that I have used for years to help keep my RC electric vehicles looking good and performing at a high level.
Wipe down the body with paper or shop towels and blow out the undercarriage with a lightly stream of compressed air. Use a small brush for areas that you cannot reach or where the air does not remove small debris. This will allow you to take a good look for parts that are broken, loose screws, body cracks or tires that may have come unglued. Check your tires for any damages such as cuts or gashes. Tighten screws and re-glue the tires to the wheels if they are not tight to the wheel. Give the shocks and suspension a good visual inspection. Add oil to the shocks if necessary. You know how the suspension takes a beating after a day of long jumps, hair-raising turns, and other rough activities like doing wheelies or bashing. Check you batteries and battery packs. If you are storing your RC for a week or more it’s best to remove the batteries from the controller as well as the RC vehicle this will help to prevent any mishaps such as corrosion that can result in costly repairs. If you plan on using your RC vehicle the next day, then there is no need to remove the batteries just charge the battery pack(s) the night before or the day before you plan to use your RC thus insuring you will have fully charged batteries at your disposal.
Try these tips and if you have others, let us know about them. Take care of your RC electric vehicle and it will make you proud!
