On your marks! Attention! Marsh! – FAMC and Dremel racing car repair workshop

In April 2016, the Bosch DIY Academy at the Flacon Design Factory hosted a master class with Dmitry Malyshko, a leading pilot in the radio-controlled car class and a representative of the Federation of Automobile Model Sport FAMS . He explained why preparing radio-controlled cars 1:1 scale for a race is like preparing for Formula 1.


On the threshold of American Automodelling sport anniversary Dremel brand and Federation of Automodelling Sport held a master class on racing cars repairing.

According to Dmytro Malyshko, radio-controlled models need no less attention than big racing cars. Sturdy wheels for a successful race. Tires for radio models, unlike their counterparts for real cars, need to be prepared for the race themselves. The main difference from 1:1 scale cars is that the tires on radio cars are not inflated. Tire inflation is controlled by foam inserts of varying densities. To keep the edges of the tire flat and without scratches use Dremel 8200 with sanding disc nozzle .

“There are several stages of racing within a single event. At the finish, competitors usually roll out 2 or 3 sets of tires in a single race day and have to change them immediately, which means minutes and seconds are lost to the winner,

– explains Dmitry Malyshko.



Dremel 8200 – This cordless power tool runs on a 10.8V Li-ion battery and is just as powerful as a corded oscillating tool. Charging time does not exceed 1 hour, which enables you to finish work quickly. Quickly install interchangeable accessories with the wrench built into the EZ Twist tip. The motor brake instantly stops the tool from spinning when the tool is turned off.

In this case a multipurpose tool becomes irreplaceable for a pilot and technicians. Most popular among automodelers – Dremel. This was also demonstrated by the 2016 Grand Prix of America in the Electric Road Racing indoors, where Dremel was a partner.


The Dremel Workatation 220 is the combination workstation with a tripod, the ideal solution for stationary work with tools. Possibility of vertical or angular drilling, step adjustment 15 degrees, horizontal grinding and polishing. Integrated flexible shaft extension 225 . The wire is always in a safe position thanks to a special control system.

“Before we release a product to the market, we always do research that helps us understand where the tool can be used. We strive to make our products multitasking. That’s why you need the Dremel multitool for everything from home and garden to vinyl crafts and even painting restoration. As we can see, the tools have also found their application in automobile modeling”,

– Says Dremel expert Stanislav Nefedov.
