Welcome to RC Scrapyard
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.
On this site you will find a number of simple to understand, step by step, hints, tips, and advice, useful to all types of RC enthusiasts, covering a range of issues such as Radio Interference, servo stutter, battery degradation, motor tuning, as well as some useful pointers for the more experienced Model Car racer 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.
History, Information and Reviews.
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 hopefully will give you some basic historical information and an insight into the way the model handles, if it has any shortcomings, as well as an occasional tip or two on setup.
