RC Car Parts
Here are some photos comparing the parts of an electric vs nitro gas rc vehicles. Becoming familiar with these will help you understand what spare parts to buy to repair your kits.
Electric RC Car Parts
Main components are the electric motor (brushed or brushless), electronic speed control and 7.4v battery pack.
Nowadays the technology used are 2.4GHz radio control systems, brushless electric motor and Lipo batteries.
Nitro RC Car Parts
Main items are the 2-stroke nitro engine, muffler, disk brakes, 2-speed transmission and special fuel.
Please note the engine type. There are engines that run on special r/c fuel made for cars and there are engines that run on gasoline mixed with 2T oil. Be careful.
Parts you will need for
nitro are fuel, glow plug igniter and bump starter for the engine
(unless the engine is a pull start type).
So remember to order the critical spare parts when buying your kit.
I recommend buy spare parts such as suspension arms, driveshafts and spur gears to keep your kits up and running. Spring, shocks, tires, pinion and other hop up parts to tune your rc car.
