How do you increase the range for a r/c car? I don't know what to purchase.? Answered

I once took the antenna wire (white) and cut the antenna out. Then I soldered a flat sheet of metal (copper or aluminum is good) to it. It could help. It did for me.

The problem with short ranges is that the transmitter is very weak.  If you change the transmitter for a more powerful one you can control your car until it's out of sight.  I'm talking about a transmitter where you buy the trans. by itself not everything as a set.

You might get a little more range if you make both of your antennas longer but you may just untune the antennas and get less range.

you could try to find a larger antenna for your car.
