How to slow down an RC Car using EPA (Endpoint Controls)

RC cars are excellent fun, but these days they can be a bit of a handful out of the box.

There is nothing worse than getting your brand new shiny RC car out of the box and smashing it straight into a tree. Being able to adjust the endpoint on an RC car is an easy way to ease yourself into the control of an RC car, its especially useful when kids are involved as they can be a bit trigger happy! Check out my how to video below, or check out the suggestions of transmitters here

Here is my instructional video

The Correct Transmitter

In order to be able to adjust the EPA you need a transmitter that will allow you to adjust these, most RC cars that are RTR (ready to run) don’t have these controls as an option. So you may need to replace your transmitter and receiver.

I am going to suggest some radio’s that are a decent price that have EPA controls.
