That's why there's a choice of over 30 channels so people don't interfere with each other. During practice they use frequency clips, if anybody has that clip you know that channel is being used so you don't turn your stuff on and interfere with them. During the races everybody's frequencies are entered into the computer and it makes sure there aren't any conflicts in the races, if there are somebody has to go to an alternate frequency. At most big races like the nationals, it is required to have at least 3 different frequencies so there won't ever be conflicts in the races.

Each radio and car is on their own separate channel. It's why when you go to races you need the parts (crystals) for at least two different channels in case you have to switch. And is why synthesized is popular now b/c you don't have to buy the extra crystals you just turn a dial. And is also why the spectrum is such a big deal b/c it finds it's own open channels, and there are more channels to choose from also.

No, every radio has crystals which can be changed. Crystals are your frequencies. The 3rd channel on a radio is normally never used in cars.

Channel 1 is steering, channel 2 is throttle/ brake, channel 3 is rarely used but some trucks use them for shifting into reverse or something like that.

ok here is some help. the 1st and 2nd channels are used for ur throttle and steering servo. The 3rd channel is normally used for other applications. That has a servo doing another job. Radios have third channels so they arent only restricted to certain jobs and return the third channel allows more people to buy it(who need it) which creates more of a profit. so if u were into another type of rc sometimes u would need a third channel. But for most cars and trucks... just leave it alone...
get it?
