How Do You Make a RC Car Slippery?

For those who are looking to make their remote control car faster, there are a few things that can be done to make it more slippery and aerodynamic. The first thing to consider is the weight of the car.

The lighter the car is, the more slippery it will be. Another important factor is the shape of the body. If the body is too boxy, air will not flow around it as easily and this will slow down your car.

The next step is to consider what type of tires you are using. If you are using slick tires they will create less friction with the ground which will allow your RC car to move faster. However, if you use a treaded tire they can give you more traction but also cause drag which will slow your car down.

Another way to make your RC car faster and more slippery is by using aero foam or aero tape. Both of these materials can help reduce drag and increase speed by creating an air barrier between the body and air that flows around it. This barrier reduces turbulence which helps reduce aerodynamic drag on your RC car.

Finally, if you want to get even more out of your RC car then you can invest in an aftermarket body kit or paint job that can further improve its aerodynamics and reduce drag even further. These kits and paint jobs usually consist of curved surfaces which help decrease turbulence and provide extra slip-resistance for faster speeds.


Making a remote control car slippery isn’t difficult but requires some thought into how it should be done properly in order to achieve maximum speed potential. Weight reduction, selecting slick tires, using aero foam or tape, and investing in an aftermarket body kit can all help reduce drag on your RC car and make it faster than ever before!
