Story

All Vroom, Less Room

Building a car from the ground up is a rite of passage for many men…if they’re starring in a popular 90’s sitcom. For the rest of us, it’s expensive, time consuming, and takes up way too much space...at least it used to.

Scratch his fix-it itch with the DIY Wooden RC Car Kit. From the steel axles and drive rod, to the full-wooden frame and suspension system, this kit has everything he’ll need to build a super-speedy RC Car from the ground up. No garage required.

Fuel his creative tank, and rev up his excitement engines with the DIY Wooden RC Car Kit.

Speed Bumps:

  • When fully assembled, this RC car can hit speeds up to 30 mph. When disassembled, it’s pretty slow.
  • A rechargeable lithium ion battery ensures hours of RC fun.
  • The included remote control and receiver make agile handling a breeze, no matter the road conditions.
  • Comes with all the hardware he’ll need and a detailed instruction booklet that’ll have him putting the proverbial pedal to the metal in no time.
  • Each of the over 100 wooden pieces has been laser cut for maximum precision and easy assembly.

    Awesome rc car!!!

    Girlfriend bought this for me a week ago it arrive very fast. As someone who is street smart and not book smart the instructions were 8/10
    On the clear motor mount where the gear goes through has a piece of plastic on one side of the gear and it tells you to remove the bearing. when doing so I noticed it was wearing on the plastic on both the gear and the motor mount so I took the gear out ground the little nub off of the gear that it tells you to put into the motor mount and I put the bearing back in the motor mount like the instructions told me to remove and it holds that driveshaft a lot more sturdy..
    All in all I have to say I write this product a 10 out of 10 just for the simple fact that there's so many things that could make this a shitty product but it's not... it's a great product if you build it right . I recommend building it without glue to make sure all of your pieces go together good. Then what you do so test drive it like I did. Then I disassemble the whole car and I put wood glue on it and I clamped it together and that thing is as strong as any other RC car great product man crates

    Instruction correction!!

    All the photos, even on the web site, are mirror-images!
    Had to disassemble a few things before figuring it out...
    Also, the motor mount is wrong, flip the two mounting pieces away from the slot, broke mine but used a wire to hold it down, drilling through the base and twisting the ends underneath. Leave the bearing in the plastic housing, it is good where it is.
    It looks like there have been some changes, but yes it is fast.

    Awesome gift but gears need work

    Super cool idea loved the gift ran great for 2 sessions then the plastic gear stripped. The electric motor and the plastic gear only over lap about 5% so figured it was bound to happen. Need either a metal gear or better spacing for the electric motor. I just unscrewed the motor from mount and put spacers on the motor side. Allowed the gears to engage more. Still not 100% but posting it so they can address this issue for the future

    RC Car x 2

    I enjoyed building the RC Car. Yes the instructions were limited but a photo tells a lot. All the wooden pieces were cut through and I finished the car. I does go about 30 mph. One problem, the gear stripped out. I noticed that while building the car, the motor and dive gear did NOT line up 1 for 1. After driving the car for a few hours, the gear stripped. Fortunately, my daughter who bought the car for me called the company and they sent me a few parts (but no gear). My daughter called again and the company sent me an entire new replacement kit, car and all. I am currently building the new car and I am making a few modifications to the motor and drive gears so that the alignment is much better. QC is great on both car kits.

    Great gift, but a few improvements needed.

    My wife got me this as a bday gift. I love Man Crates and have been very impressed with others she has got me. This car didn't disappoint, but I had a few issues.
    The instructions could be more clear, but seeing how its a MAN crate, I figured it out. Jokes aside, I did get frustrated amd had to redo a couple things because it was clear. Also, adjusting the steering (mine pulls to the right and I haven't been able to fix it yet) is very hard. Could use some extra instructions like an "if this (issue), then that (solution)" book. It makes weird noise when I turn, I'm not sure if the wheels are supposed to move the way they do, etc. Some reassurance that these things are normal (or arent) would be nice.
    Lastly, a could of my pieces on the wood sheets weren't laser cut all the way and needed some cutting to remove.
    Overall, I'm satisfied, but there is room for improvement to make this even better!
