How to Make RC Wheelie Bars

Updated April 17, 2017

Radio-controlled (RC) wheelie bars can be useful to RC owners that are beginning to learn how to do wheelies with their remote control cars. Wheelie bars prevent your RC from flipping when doing wheelies until you are comfortable pulling off the trick without them. Wheelie bars can be bought at hobby stores, but with the right materials, you can attach some to the frame of your RC car to protect your toy while saving yourself some money.

Drill two holes into the frame, at the back side of the RC car. Some RC cars have unused space on the metal frame in the back. If this is the case, you can attach the wheelie bar without altering your RC frame.

Attach the skateboard wheels to the training wheel frames. This step is optional, but skateboard wheels appear better than default stabilisers because they are less bulky.

Attach the stabilisers frame using the holes you created in step one or on the frame of the RC car. The bend in the stabilisers should point outwards instead of down so that the wheels are a few inches off the ground, instead of touching the ground at all times.
