RC18 Series Tuning

A support page for Radio Control 1:18th Scale vehicles. While most of this information is geared towards the Team Associated 18B/18MT/18R/18T, it will apply to most 1:18th scale vehicles…the way to make the change might be the only difference.

If you would like more information on a certain aspect of 1:18th scale that is not covered here, please contact CompetitionX and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
