Owning an RC race car is not just about the car, it is also about the person who owns it. As a race car, it requires a lot of care and attention if you want it to perform at the highest speeds with the best performance at all times. With regular servicing and care, you can give your RC race car a lot of zing, but if you get into the depths of RC racing, you will be surprised at the levels people go to ensure they have the ideal RC race car.

Firstly, you pick an engine and if you are looking for real pace or speed, then a nitro-powered RC race car is the deal for you. They are fast, sometimes even hitting 100 mph, without taking too much away in terms of agility. While the highest speeds will only be on straight-line circuits, there is a chance that you will hit quite high speeds even on curving tracks.

The RC race car is a delicate machine and irrespective of the type of engine you buy, it requires you to pay special attention to the cleaning and servicing part of maintenance. There is also a lot of emphasis on the fuel being used. Most competitors, who are serious about racing, prepare their own special mix. While gas-powered and electric race cars have standard fuel requirements that cannot be tampered with, it is the nitro-car section of the RC race car that undergoes serious experimentation. While the standard mix available commercially usually has nitromethane along with gasoline and castor oil, people have been known to use paraffin wax as well. There are other mixes that people come up with, which enhances the performance of their RC race car either in terms of the speed, the acceleration or even the braking.

You are sure to find something similar near your city. The idea is simple - take your car to the track, enter it into the competition with like-model/power/design category cars and when your turn comes, let her rip!

However, if you don't know of any competitions, then you can check with your local hobby or RC store and they are sure to point you in the right direction. You can also find many locations and competitions over the Internet. People take their RC race cars and travel across countries even, to participate in the bigger & more prestigious competitions.

Frankly, the radio controlled racing arena is almost as wide and organized as the actual car racing arena.
