How Do You Make a RC Dirt Track Car?

Remote control (RC) dirt track car racing has become an increasingly popular hobby in recent years. With a variety of different types of RC cars available, including off-road cars, street cars, and race cars, it can be difficult to decide which type of RC car is right for you. If you’re looking for an exciting and challenging way to get into the RC racing scene, dirt track car racing is a great option.

Making your own RC dirt track car requires some technical knowledge and skill, but it’s well worth the effort.

The first step is to decide on the type of chassis you want for your car. There are several different designs available, so it’s important to choose one that meets your needs and preferences. Next, you’ll need to decide on the type of motor and electronics that will power your car. A good way to determine this is by researching other successful racers in your local area or online.

Once you have all the necessary components for your RC dirt track car, it’s time to assemble them together. You’ll need to solder the electronics together and mount them on the chassis in order to make sure they are securely connected. Make sure that all connections are secure and free from any damage or corrosion before moving onto the next step.

The last step in making your own RC dirt track car is painting and decorating it with decals or stickers. This will give your car its own unique look that will set it apart from other similar models at the race track. When painting or applying decals, be sure to take extra care not to damage any of the internal components.


Making an RC dirt track car can be a fun and rewarding experience for anyone interested in getting into RC racing. With a bit of technical know-how and research into successful racers in your area or online, you can assemble all the necessary components for your own unique model. Remember that when painting or applying decals, take extra care not to damage any internal components!
