How Much Does It Cost to Build an RC Drift Car?

Building an RC Drift Car is both exciting and rewarding. It allows you to experience the thrills of drifting around tight corners and long straights in your own backyard.

But how much does it cost to build one? The answer depends on the type of car you want and the level of customization you are looking for.

At the most basic level, a ready-to-run (RTR) RC car will cost anywhere between $100 and $500. These cars come with all the components and parts necessary for running them but may not offer as much customization as other types of RC cars. They also tend to be smaller than other types of RC drift cars, which can limit your drifting capabilities.

If you want more customization options, you can purchase an unassembled kit for a drift car. Kits come with all the parts necessary for assembling the car, including wheels, tires, suspension, body panels, motors, and electronics.

You will also need tools like soldering irons, wrenches, screwdrivers, and pliers to put everything together. Assembling a drift car from a kit usually costs between $200 and $1000 depending on the quality of parts included in the kit.

Once you have built your car from a kit or bought an RTR model off-the-shelf, you will still need some additional items such as spare parts like tires or batteries as well as tools for maintenance or repairs. These items can range from $50 to several hundred dollars depending on what type of spare parts or tools you purchase.

In summary, building an RC drift car can range in price from around $150 up to around $1500 depending on whether you choose an RTR model or build one from a kit.

No matter what route you take when building your dream drift car – whether it be an RTR model or one built from scratch – it’s sure to be an enjoyable experience that will lead to hours of fun with friends and family alike!

Conclusion: Building an RC Drift Car requires some initial investment in terms of purchasing either an RTR model (which typically costs between $100 – 500) or buying a kit (which typically costs between $200 – 1000). Additional items such as spare parts and tools will also add to the overall cost of constructing your dream drift car but are necessary for ensuring its performance and longevity.
