The stunning realistic features achieved by model Gas RC Cars brings forth many models of cars that look exactly like real Subaru Imprezas, Ferraris, Peugeots, Porsches, BMWs, Formula 1 racecars, or even Arnold Schwarzenegger's Hummers! They actually use scale replicas licensed from the original makers.
Like real cars, you will be amazed by the sheer variety of beautiful, fancy and stunning looking Gas RC cars on display in shops and on e-commerce sites. But inside the body, the engine and its systems are uniquely designed for Gas RC Cars. A Gas RC car's chassis is key to the type of car you get.
The chassis has to be tough and strong to handle the top speeds and maintain system integrity. While an off-road Gas RC Car's chassis needs to be extra sturdy to cope with rough handling, a Gas Sprint RC Car's chassis needs to be extra light. Using different body shells of various models on a basic chassis, many different types of Gas RC Cars can be made.
A Gas RC Car chassis houses its engine, radio control receiver, subsystems, suspension, and wheels, and it comes readily made even in kits. To make your dream car, all you need to do is to fix the parts on it and cap it with the body shell. Many firms take special care to make a basic chassis suitable for assembling an electric or Nitro/ Gas RC car on it. It may be made either of high-strength carbon composites (as in Gas sprint RC cars and mini Gas RC Cars) for lightweight or with high-strength and very tough titanium alloy (as in off-road versions) for rough handling and blazing speeds.
While a chassis in general only provides the basic frame, when the Ready to Run kits are sold, companies may refer to the chassis frame equipped with all the parts, wheels and engine suitable for the particular type as the chassis. So, a Gas RC Car chassis may mean the basic metal / carbon fiber chassis frame or the car without the body shell, depending on the context.
If you assemble a car yourself, you will choose the suitable basic Gas RC car chassis frame or use the one supplied to you. But if you buy the RTR chassis (complete car without the body shell) you will need to make sure all of the components suit your requirements. Your dream RC car has to be housed on a good Gas RC car chassis.
