Buying A Petrol Powered Remote Controlled Car
When it comes to buying a petrol powered remote controlled car, the sheer variety of requirements and demands can become a little exhausting. If you want to make sure that your investment is going to be worthwhile, then this quick guide should make sure you aren’t left with any damaged hardware.

Typically, a petrol powered remote controlled car is going to be powered by using a genuine combustion engine, using a model glow flue that, within, has a mixture of nitro methanol and oil. Fuel has to be purchased of the right kind for your car, though, so you can’t just put in any old stuff and hope that your RC will fare well from doing so.

What you should look to do is invest in the right fuel from an online store or from a local store. Getting the right kind is tough, so if it’s a local store take your model with you and they can help you find the ideal fit for it.

Making The Right Call

• These cars are VERY fast, so you need to be ready for the speed burst that this provides you with. The noise and the visibility of the revs makes sure that you are left with an RC car that sounds and looks the part

• Now, normally you want to make sure that yours is compatible with the petrol that you have bought for it. this is done by checking the guide that comes with your RC model, or checking the manufacturer site is you cannot find this information.

• Also, be aware that a petrol car tends to run on a mixture of real unleaded petrol and a 2-stroke oil – they tend to be much more powerful and the oil mix can be quite hard to find specifically. They are more expensive in general, but the larger models can actually run on the petrol from a petrol station itself.

• You should always look at both the size of your model and the kind of petrol it takes. Since RC cars all tend to fall under the one category, knowing if the one you are driving is going to be fully petrol based or need the nitro style instead is very important.

Invest some time and effort into checking out your model. If you are in the 1:5/1:4 scale, then you are likely going to be able to use the normal petrol that a real car is going to run on. Most smaller models will be 1:8 to 1:18 in scale and they will need to run on the less powerful engines. It takes a bit of reading up and specific checking of the actual model that you use, though, so do your research.

Using the wrong kind of petrol for a vehicle can be dangerous, as real car owners will know. With that in mind, you should always do some digging and make sure the model and style that you buy does the job that it claims to.
