How to Wheelie an RC car:Introduction to Wheelies with RC Cars


Have you ever wanted to do a wheelie with your RC car? While it might seem intimidating, the process of doing a wheelie with an RC car is actually quite simple when you know what you’re doing. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the steps involved in pulling off a successful wheelie.

Preparing Your Car for a Wheelie

Before you can pull off a wheelie, your car needs to be set up properly. The most important thing is that your car’s center of gravity should be extremely low. This means that the battery should be placed as close to the ground as possible, and the tires should be inflated properly. Additionally, if your car has adjustable shocks or suspension, make sure those are set up correctly too. Doing so will ensure that your car is stable and able to stay balanced while on two wheels.

Performing a Wheelie

Once you’ve prepared your car, it’s time to give it a try! Start by driving forward at a slow speed and keep both hands on the throttle until the front tires come off the ground. Once they are in the air, continue applying throttle until your desired height is reached; then use gentle steering inputs to keep it balanced while maintaining its height. You can also play around with brake inputs if you need more control over how high your car goes in the air. Practice this technique until you feel comfortable doing wheelies consistently and accurately.

Staying Safe While Wheeling

Safety should always be top of mind when attempting any type of stunt with an RC car—especially one as potentially dangerous as doing wheelies! Be sure to wear protective gear such as gloves and goggles whenever attempting any sort of stunt like this, and make sure there are no obstacles in your way that could cause damage or injury if something were to go wrong. You can pull off some amazing stunts with proper preparation and practice without putting yourself or others at risk!


Doing wheelies with an RC car is an exhilarating experience that requires knowledge and skill to pull off successfully. By taking into account, factors such as preparing your vehicle for optimal stability, understanding how throttle input affects the height and balance of your vehicle, and making sure safety precautions are taken before attempting any stunts, you can enjoy all the thrills that come from mastering this impressive trick! So don’t wait any longer—get out there and start practicing today!​
