RC Cars FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions about our RC Cars!
Welcome to the RC Cars FAQ Page! This page is here to answer some of your most frequently asked questions. If you don’t see the answer you’re looking for, get in touch! Let’s get started!
Q: What are RC cars?
A: RC Cars are remote controlled, scaled (1/10th the size of normal cars) electronic vehicles. They are built to move extremely fast and are a ton of fun to race! These cars have a large and enthusiastic fan base, and we’re happy to open
Q: Is there an RC Car racing league?
A: Not yet, but we’re absolutely open to the idea! If you are interested in setting one up, get in touch. We’d love to work out the details!
Q: When is the RC track open?
A: The RC track is open anytime that we are. This is a huge deal for enthusiasts, because most RC tracks are only open for short times on specific days of the week!
Check here for our current operating hours. We recommend you check this page before you come up, because our hours change with the seasons and are sometimes subject to holidays and facility rentals. Be sure to check our event calendar and Facebook page prior to heading up!
Q: Do you have a live timing system?
A: Yes! Our live timing system syncs to our RC Cars to provide you with accurate lap timing. This system also works for any RC Car that comes in, so enthusiasts with their own vehicles can get their lap times as well!
Q: What kind of track is at G-Force Portsmouth?
A: Our track is an off road RC car racing track. It has ramps, obstacles, bumps, tight turns, and a straightaway where you can max out your speed… if you’ve got the guts!
Q: What age does my son/daughter have to be to race the RC cars?
A: We require racers to be at least 5 years old to operate our RC cars. They are advanced machines and require quite a bit of dexterity and coordination to operate correctly.
Q: Do I need to bring my own RC Car or buy anything there?
A: Nope! Included in the price of the race is absolutely everything you need to hop right in! Our RC Cars are top of the line, too! These things fly.
However, if you have your own RC car or truck, we welcome you to bring it on up! We’ll get you hooked up to our live timing system and get you on the track ASAP.
We like to group the enthusiasts and beginners/casuals separately in order to keep the races competitive and fun!
Q: How long are the races, and how much do they cost?
A: Each race is 6 minutes long. We price out our RC cars based on whether your bring your own equipment or use ours.
