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 R/C cars and establish a fun place in which to do so.
What do we do?
Essentially we race radio controlled model racing cars. 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:
1/10th Electric Touring Car (most popular)
1/12th Pan Car, 1/10th Pan Car
1/10th Tamiya Mini
1/10th Formula 1
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.
With these questions in mind, visit your local hobby store. LHS 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.
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.
