WHO ARE WE?

We are a non profit organization composed of radio control car enthusiasts of all ages, budgets, and skill levels. Our goal is to promote the construction and racing of Hobby Grade R/C cars and establish a fun place in which to do so.

WHAT DO WE DO?

Essentially we race Hobby Grade radio controlled model racing cars, on a special indoor carpet track. From practicing your driving to testing your skills against other like-minded competitors, we provide a fun paced environment to do so.

WHAT CLASS SHOULD I RUN?

At CARCAR we run a wide variety of classes, each having set guidelines so that every racer has as much fun as the next person. The classes that we offer are as follows:

Electric Battery Powered Cars
1/10th Scale Tamiya Mini (perfect for beginners)
1/10th Scale Tamiya Euro Truck (perfect for beginners)
1/12th , 1/10th Scale Pan Car
1/10th Scale Formula 1
1/10th Scale Touring Car (classes include USGT, Stock, Modified)

WHAT CAR SHOULD I GET?

Probably one of the toughest questions for us to answer. There are many brands of cars on the market. We suggest taking a few things into consideration before you purchase your first kit.

  • Check to see what people are racing at the track. Picking one of these can help if you require setup advice or have question about the car.
  • Parts availability, check to see if your local hobby shop stock spare parts for your car. And are knowledgeable about the products.
  • Price. What can I afford to spend to get into this hobby.

WHAT NEXT?

With these questions in mind, visit your local hobby store. Local hobby shops are the backbone of the R/C world and can provide valuable information. If the LHS does not have what you are looking for, check out R/C forums (www.rctech.net), E-Bay or ask people at the track. There are a lot of used cars that have lots of life left in them.

Local Hobby Shops in Calgary:
PM Hobby Craft ( www.pmhobbycraft.ca )
Action Hobby ( www.actionhobby.ca )
Model Land ( www.modelland.com )

WHERE CAN I FIND MORE INFORMATION?

A good place to start is your local hobby shop, Internet, R/C car magazines, books and of course YouTube.
