The purpose of the body clip is simple. It keeps the rc car body attached to its chassis especially when running at top speeds.

Body clips can be purchased at very low prices.

Tip: So that you won’t lose body clips often. After removing them from the chassis, its nice to clip them on an the wings/spoilers of an rc cover body. If your rc cover has no spoiler installed then you can just clip it under or find a place in the cover where you can attach the body clip. That way you wouldn’t lose or misplace it and it sticks to the rc body.


Racing your nitro RC on the street or even off-road is a heavy burden to its nitro engine’s air filter. Dirt and other debris can get inside and reduce the performance of your nitro rc engine. Cleaning the air filter is part of the maintenance needed to keep your RC at optimal performance. Changing air filter parts and oiling those regularly helps optimize and lengthen the life of your nitro engine.

The role of a wheelie bar is to keep the RC car or truck’s front end from lifting too far off the ground. Just like in drag racing, this occurrence means big trouble. It is also used to keep it from lifting during fast acceleration to promote safety and keep it on the track. When performing a wheelie, these bars keep the rc car from flipping over. RC vehicles that need wheelie bars are rear wheel drive vehicles with a lot of torque or power. When the front end lifts and only the rear tires are on the ground, the wheelie bar keeps the vehicle stabilized and allows the rear wheels to maintain traction during acceleration.
