Default RC CARS RENTAL BUSINESS

Hello every body ,

I am Alain-Stephane FALLY and I am writing you from IVORY COAST , in the Western Africa ( so far ... lolll ) .
I am deeply interested in RC CARS hobby and I would like to promote it in my country .
Since most of the people ( kids and adult ) cannot afford RC CARS cost , I would like to promote this hobby by renting the RC CARS .

1 ) Would you please giving me some pieces of advice about the type of rc cars to buy ( strong enough and easy to maintain ) , so as to make this business viable ;

2 ) Would you please giving me the contacts of RC CARS CLUBS / ORGANIZATION which perform this kind of business in the US ?

Thank you in advance for your tips .

Look into 2wd sc trucks. Most are fairly durable, and easy to drive for a new person.

The offroad kits will be easy for new drivers. Plus you will be able to race on different surface. The legend kits has limits to surface to race.

Good idea and wish you the best.

I have a friend who rents out RC cars at events. Short course trucks (2WD) are great as they are very strong, the shell protects the drive train and they also look more realistic than buggies. He also does TT01's for inside but the short course trucks are so popular he usually will now do these indoors.

the other thing is to run them with 4cells not 6 cells, they are still fast but not too fast and this will avoid a lot of breakages and is also easier for people to use.
