Any Nitro RC car that can be raced is a Gas RC Car. Here are some examples: Gas RC Zs and Ts, Gas SUVs, Gas Hummers, Gas Buggies, Gas Off-Road Trucks, Gas Mini RC Cars, Gas F1 type Racers, Gas RC Tour Cars.
Only Touring Gas RC cars, Formula One Gas RC cars, and Off-Road Gas Buggies are real racecars. The Touring and Formula One Gas RC cars have a small rear wing that provides increased grip to the ground while racing. Most of the time, they have four-wheel drive with high friction, soft rubber tires like their real counterparts. There are races for two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive trucks, buggies, touring cars, and Can-Am bodied cars. But, there are also classes of races specific to the Gas RC car type.
Just like the real racecars, racing these Nitro RC Racing Cars is fun and exciting. You may also need special equipment for Nitro RC Racing Cars. Tamiya, Traxxas, Team Losi, Kyosho, and HPI are a few reputable manufacturers of Gas RC cars.
Gas RC cars need special care because they race for much longer durations and distances than Electric RC Cars. When it comes to hardware, always use high friction race tires, keep wheel alignment perfect, check all nuts, bolts and other replaceable parts for tight and snug fitting, and see if the engine needs to be tuned prior to racing. Check the fuel, all of the fuel lines and other accessories. Lubricate all of the moving parts and use ball bearings as much as you can to minimize loss due to internal friction.
The racecar’s tires need special attention. You can use an automatic tire gluer for correct alignment and an automatic tire tuner for tuning the tire surface. Racing cars may need a few more sets of spare tires for races. This is more applicable to Gas RC racecars because they run longer and attract more dirt and grime than the electric RC cars.
The Gas RC Racing cars may just be models, but they are no less ferocious than their real counterparts once began to race. With the smooth rubber race tires to aid the grip, oil filled shock absorbers for smooth ride and less wear and tear on internal parts, very realistic modelling, powerful gas engines, specially formulated high energy fuels, these can easily attain an insane 70 mph with some modifications.
With the increasing popularity of 1/8 and 1/10 scales, the new supercharged two-stroke gas engines, and four stroke engines the patronage for Gas RC cars is bound to increase. The present world record for Gas RC Race Car Racing is at 110 mph.
