RC Scrapyard - History and Information.
On this site you will find categorised lists of over 3000 Radio Controlled Electric and Nitro powered Models of various types, ranging from 1:5 to 1:24 Scale.
Most of the pages provide an image of that particular model and some basic information. Some have a small section relating to the history of the model and a short review, concerning how the car handles and a few tips to make improvements.
As Radio Controlled Models become more popular the world over, this site is dedicated to help both those who are just starting in the hobby as well as those with many years of experience.
Based on my many years of experience, on the pages of this site you will find a number of simple to understand, step by step, hints, tips, and advice, useful to a wide range of RC enthusiasts, covering common problems and issues, including Radio Interference, servo stutter, battery degradation, motor tuning, gearing setup, esc advice and some useful common sense pointers for the more experienced RC Model enthusiast, on how to reduce bearing friction, so your car will go even faster.
You will also find a page entitled "How to set up your car like the professionals." That imparts all I have learned since starting in this hobby way back in 1987 when I bought my first car, a Tamiya Boomerang that still sits proudly on the top shelf of my workshop. On this page you will find all the information you will ever need to set up and fine tune your RC Touring car, Buggy, Truck, Truggy etc that could give you that extra five percent advantage on the racetrack.
Over the years I have bought and sold, built, restored and raced a huge number of RC models and if I haven't had a particular model, there's a good chance I know someone who has.
Not all the models on this site have yet been reviewed, it is a work in progress, but will give you some basic information and our "Hints and Tips" pages will help you get more from this exciting and ever changing hobby and sport.
