If you’ve never built a kit before, it’s helpful to see how it’s done before diving head-first. As I’ve discovered during my time in the hobby, a kit offers a great way to gain an understanding of an R/C machine, from the inside out.
AMain Hobbies has a great video series that illustrates the build process, taking a Team Associated B6.2 competition buggy kit and turning it into a track-worthy racer. They even went a step further and added some hop-ups to really maximize the performance of this machine.
In addition to highlighting the building and upgrading of this kit, the six-part series also highlights what you should look for when hitting the track for the first time and how to tune your competitive radio-controlled model for improved performance, and what to do when things go wrong.
