Haynes Radio-Control Car Manual

Haynes Radio-Control Car Manual

I always associated Haynes Manuals with something you buy when you want to restore a classic car or fix your worn out Renault 5, but it seems they are branching out and this new Radio Control Car Manual may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Written by Matt Benfield, editor of Radio Control Car Racer magazine, this hardback book contains 176 pages of useful information as well as 250 colour illustrations.

Driving radio-control cars is an enjoyable hobby and also a competitive sport, but the vast range of different types of models now available can prove confusing for those new to the scene. This extensively illustrated book starts by providing all the information needed to choose the right model, and goes on to present advice on how to build kits as well as driving techniques, maintenance, modifying, set-up and the various different classes of racing. Essential reading for those contemplating buying their first model and for those already involved in the scene looking to progress to the next level.
