Default FAQs Thread

I got an idea about putting some good links as FAQs for the newbies. Some of the newcomers don't know things like how to break in motor, or lining etc. So perhaps if we see good stuff online can try to contribute here. Just post the link, and I'll update on this page.

Note that I'm not a nitro hobbyist

Tamiya's Guide to Basic Driving Skills

Electric Motor Break In How-to (There are lots out there)

RC Car Handling (Car Setup Guide)
