How Do You Make a Mini RC Car Track?

Making your own mini RC car track is an exciting and rewarding experience. You can create a challenging and unique track layout that will provide hours of entertainment. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced RC enthusiast, building your own track is a great way to test your driving skills and hone your technique.

Gather Your Supplies

The first step in creating your one-of-a-kind mini RC car track is to gather the necessary supplies. You will need an appropriate base surface, such as wood, foam board, or carpet.

For the track walls, you can use wooden blocks, foam board pieces, corks, or any other materials that are sturdy enough to support the weight of the cars. Other materials you may need include screws and glue for attaching the walls and other elements together; paint for adding colors and designs; and various accessories such as flags, trees, bridges, barriers, etc.

Design Your Track Layout

Once you have all of the necessary materials ready to go, it’s time to design your track layout. Start by sketching out a rough design on paper with measurements for each section of the track.

Consider adding obstacles such as jumps and tight curves to make it more challenging for drivers. Also think about where you want to place certain features such as the start/finish line and pit area. Once you have a basic idea of how you want your track to look like on paper, it’s time to start building it!

Assemble Your Track

Using the measurements from your sketch as a guide, begin assembling the base of your mini RC car track by securing all of the walls and other pieces together with screws or glue. Attach any accessories that you want included in your design such as bridges or trees according to their designated locations on your sketch. Finally, if desired add some paint or other decorations to give it its final touches!


Making a mini RC car track is an enjoyable way to spend time with friends or family while having fun driving around various obstacles on an exciting course that you created yourself! With some basic supplies and a bit of creativity you can build an awesome racing course that will provide hours of entertainment for everyone involved!
