Default Storing/display your RC cars

Just wonder if any of you display your RC cars that are not being ran anymore????

How do you keep it? Do you buy those boxes for those model cars? Or any good ideas to keep the car dust/rust free?

Thumbs up Just get a shelf unit

I just use one of those plastic storage stands with 5 large shelves, It works really good and doesn't take up too much room.
I'm not as lucky as futureal, he gets to put his on the Mantle.
I guess that wouldn't work for me anyway, I don't have a mantle.
I have all my r/c stuff on my shelf in my bedroom and the cars sit on blocks of painted wood , so the tires don't develope flat spots.

I nail thumb tags on the wall and put my bodies on the wall.
They look really nice!

apply wd40 to the metal parts (dogbones, steel tierods, outdrives, etc.) but dont wipe them off. this should prevent rust from forming, especially in humid climates.

Cool

here is another Idea. I done this for a bunch of years before I moved. I had a fancing type of wire that covered my wall, and with hook I mounts the cars. It looked really cool!!!!!!!!!!

Marvi: WD40 is corrosive to plastic parts, i suggest you use some other kind of protective material against metal. something like regular grease should work!

you really dont have to do much to prevent rusting. as long as you thoroughly clean all rustable parts before you store them, you should be fine. if you store your stuff in a cool closet with only the car box that should be fine. but if youre gonna put it somewhere where there is moisture a constant changing temps. id say get one of those tupperware things and put the metal parts in that!

My stuff ends up where it ends up, like interceptor, all over. I have a couple hundred Hotwheels decorating my walls in my RC room so theres really no more room for shelves for my RC Cars. Most of the time my TC3 sits on top of my computer.
