New Bright is a manufacturer of RC, or radio-controlled, vehicles. The company makes radio-controlled toys aimed at young enthusiasts as well as scale cars and trucks usable in competition and for other purposes. Replacement parts are available from New Bright and other companies so that hobbyists can do the following work on their RCs:
- Repair wear and tear and damage from accidents.
- Tweak their RC cars and trucks to a particular track or environment.
- Upgrade parts for enhanced durability and performance.
Generally, replacements are made with the original material. If the stock control arm is made from a plastic composite, then parts sold separately will be constructed from the same material. This isn't necessarily true in the case of upgrades, however, because the manufacturer will often choose the best material for the performance or ruggedness being sought. Common material options include the following:
- Plastic composite
- Carbon fiber
Like the model train industry, the RC industry uses scale to indicate the size difference between the model and the real-life object being modeled. If there is no real-world subject, then the number simply indicates size relative to other RC toys and replicas.
New Bright indicates scale for its toys as well as its more serious cars, trucks, and boats. The reason this measurement is important when choosing replacement parts is that it informs you if the part will fit. A 1:8-scale wheel won't fit on a 1:10-scale truck. You will need a 1:10-scale part. Common scales used by New Bright are listed here:
New Bright offers an option for nearly every part that constitutes the vehicle. In some cases, it offers upgrades and accessories too. These enhancements are also made by third parties, and some of the more prevalent options include the ones listed here:
- Vehicle shells
- Tires and wheels
- Shocks and springs
- Control arms
Check the manual for your New Bright toy or replica. Each manual has an exploded view of the vehicle with part numbers for each item. You can use that part number to ensure that you're buying an appropriate replacement or upgrade.
