Lawn Mower Repair Is Great Practice For A Gas RC

2 min read

Lawn mower repair will help you eliminate some of the fears you have for 1/5 gas cars. The motors are both classified as small engines. The concept of how they work is the same; it’s just one is two-stroke and the other is four-stroke.

Yes, both can be a little feisty or temperamental but that’s what makes them fun and unique. Everyone has an electric RC car these days, you can pick them up at any store. You don’t see a gas RC car that often, it raises eyebrows because of it.

When you learn to fix or repair something like an engine it’s a different feeling. It’s a challenge of its own that most people will never experience.

I remember the first time I walked into my first technical school class. I didn’t know anything about engines at all. I wasn’t good at fixing anything; completely terrified. The first assignment was to find an old lawn mower that doesn’t run and bring it to class with you. I found an old Brings & Stratton 3.5 engine that had been sitting in a shed for years.

The second assignment of the class was to start tearing the lawn mower apart and completely dismantling the engine. Once it was apart to understand that if you had fuel, ignition, and compression you could get it to run. That’s the rule for any engine, I still go by that when troubleshooting.


I have a love for all things toy car-related whether it's Lamborghini toy cars, Corvette C8 toy cars, or big car toys for adults. My specialty is looking for the best deals in the right places.

Vintage toy cars are something that fascinates me. What makes old toy cars worth money? The desire to have the car that you dreamed about as a kid. Having the income to purchase the car now that you've found, imagining the joy that it will bring.

I also love to do home automation in my spare time for fun. I love to consult on all things computers but mostly for family. Technology has always been a passion of mine so I've always studied information systems. I have over 20 years of experience in this function and love it because it's challenging but also rewarding.
