On-road TC racing has become so competitive that the rc body makes a big difference in performance. With speeds of over 50mph, aerodynamics is very important. Most popular now is the Protoform Mazda Speed 6, LTC-R and the R9-R bodies. Though some might look like blobs, with some creative paint scheme you can give it a futuristic look.

Technology today has made electric rc cars faster with minimal maintenance. LIPO batteries have no memory effect and can be used several times a day. The brushless electric motors are generally maintenance free and keep their power run after run.

The main technology breakthrough is with the speed controller. These electronic speed controls (ESC) now have boost and turbo features that increases motor rpm and power at better efficiency. Result is massive speed and acceleration, more than enough to keep you smiling.

The hobby of radio control cars is still growing with so many choices. The main attraction is the speed, realism and ability to enjoy rc car racing at a very cheap price.
