FAQs
Are they waterproof?

Electric: Most electric RC cars are waterproof* - just double check in the description of the RC car you're looking at.

Fuel powered: As all fuel powered engines need air to operate there's no truly 'waterproof' fuel powered RC cars, however, there's some that have waterproof electronics which essentially makes the car 'splash proof' - never submerge a fuel powered RC car.

*Note: if you drive in water (especially salt water) make sure you clean it thouroughly. Driving in wet conditions will increase the wear and tear on components such as bearings, tyres (they can fill up with water and overload your electrics and damage the foam inserts) and various metal parts. Even if your car's electronics are waterproof, it's best to stay away from water.

Things to consider:

Here are a few things that you should think about when buying an RC car for someone else.

  • Where will they drive it?
    • If they live on a farm for example, they might want to drive it in the paddock or in long grass so you should look at getting an RC truck with large wheels
  • Have they had an RC car before?
    • If so, they might want something better, or different to what that have currently
    • If not, it might be best to get them a beginner level RC car
  • Make sure you have everything
    • Many cars need a battery (or fuel), charger and AA batteries for the remote controller. To check, scroll down to the bottom of the product page and see the "Required Items (Not Included)" section.
  • Packaging:
    • Most RC cars will come in either a blank cardboard box or in black plastic (no branding)
    • Most Axial cars will come packaged in the original Axial box (which has Axial's logo on the side)
    • Most Rovan vehicles come in a blank box with the words "RC CAR" on the side

Tip: Unless they've specifically asked or expressed interest in on-road RC cars, off-road vehicles are a safer bet as they are more versatile as they can drive on the road and off-road.

Some RC cars are classified as dangerous goods because they include a LiPo battery. You can tell an RC car is dangerous goods if it has a warning note like this one:

If you need your RC car sent by express post ensure it doesn't have this warning and you select the option during checkout.

What is drift?
Drift? What's drift?
- F&F Tokyo Drift

Let's see what Wikipedia has to say about this.

Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires, while maintaining control and driving the car sideways through the entirety of a corner.

If you're still unsure what drifting is, watch our video on the HSP Flying Fish RC drift car below.

What makes them drift?

RC drift cars have hard plastic (like PVC plumbing pipe) tyres which provides very little traction and therefore allows the car to slide out and, well, drift.

How fast do they go?

Drift cars never really reach their 'top speed' as they don't have enough traction! Even if the wheels are turning at 50km/h, with standard hard plastic drift tyres it's uncommon to go faster than 25kph - it's hard to go faster than that going sideways!
