So what do you get when you buy one of the zipzaps pack from your local store?

Zipzaps kit that you buy would contain a chassis and rechargeable batteries to power the car. You will connect the gear and wheels to the chassis. Your selection of gears and wheels and body for the vehicle is at your discretion.

There are plenty of options for choosing the motor of Zipzaps. You may choose the motor with a modest 16000 rpm or may opt for the more advanced one offering 34000 rpm.

When it comes to gears you have three options viz 12:1, 9.86:1 and 8.25:1.

Zipzaps RC Cars Mechanism and Customization

The typical run time of these cars is about five minutes. It takes anywhere between forty seconds to one minute to charge a Zipzaps completely. To charge the car just mount it on the transmitter in its entirety. A wheel alignment lever placed below the vehicle helps in tracking.

Customization is of paramount importance for rc enthusiasts and Zipzaps offer those opportunities in plenty. You may choose a body of any of your favourite cars old and new to mount on the chassis. Some of the more popular ones are Mercedes-Benz, Chevrolet Corvette, Hummer, Audi TT and Ford Mustang.

There are only two operational frequencies for Zipzaps radio controlled cars. They may operate at either 27 MHz or 49 MHz. That restricts the number of participants in Zipzaps car racing. At a given point of time only two racers can participate.

Some Zipzaps cars are equipped with working head and tail lights.
