How Do You Make a RC Car Exhaust?

Making a RC car exhaust is a great way to customize your vehicle. Not only does it add to the look of the car, but it also helps improve performance. It can be a tricky process, but with the right parts and knowledge, you can get the job done quickly and effectively.

The first step in making an RC car exhaust is to choose the right parts. You’ll need to find an exhaust pipe that fits your car’s engine size and type, as well as a muffler that is designed for that particular model.

You should also consider getting an air filter if you’re looking for better performance. Once you have all of your parts, it’s time to put them together.

Start by attaching the exhaust pipe to the outlet on the engine block. Then, attach the muffler to the other end of the pipe.

Secure both ends with clamps or screws depending on what type of exhaust system you have. Finally, attach the air filter if you purchased one.

Installing The Exhaust:

Once all of your parts are installed, it’s time to start installing your RC car exhaust. Start by connecting one end of the exhaust pipe to the outlet on your engine block.

Secure it with clamps or screws depending on what type of system you have. Then, attach the other end of the pipe to your muffler and secure it as well.

Next, attach any air filters that you may have purchased for better performance and finally set up any additional components like catalytic converters or resonators if applicable. Make sure all connections are properly secured before moving on.

Testing Your Exhaust:

Once everything is in place, it’s time to test out your new RC car exhaust system. Make sure all connections are tight and secure before starting up your vehicle for testing purposes.

Start up your vehicle and take it for a spin around a quiet area such as an empty parking lot or field where there isn’t much sound interference from other sources. Listen closely for any strange noises coming from your engine or exhaust system while driving around.


Making a RC car exhaust requires some knowledge and preparation but can be done relatively easily with some patience and good quality parts. Once all components are installed correctly and tested out properly, you will be able enjoy improved performance from your vehicle while looking good at the same time!
