RC car for my 3 year old boy
 
Hi,

I, perhaps rather foolishly, just bought a Losi Micro T under the guise of it being for my boy who is just over 3 years old.

I have a feeling it's going to be too fast for him (although I suspect I'll quite like it). And the Radio will be too big for his hands.

I have to persuade the wife it was a good purchase.

Any ideas how I can slow it down or can get a radio that's smaller?!

Many thanks for any help!

BTW... The wife knows... :rolleyes:

thats pretty tough doggy. Only way you could easily slow it down is by changing the pinion to a small one. I'v never purchased an aftermarket pinion for the micro t so i don't even know if they are available.

The radio thing is new to me. I'v never seen mini sized radios "that would work with something like the micro t" sorry man :(

good luck though Hopefuly he'll get the hang of it and be racing in no time!

Thanks. I chickened out and cancelled the order, lol. I think I might have to plain own up and ask for it for christmas for meself! and perhaps look at an RC tractor or something for the boy. ho hum.

Thanks again
