Description

Tomica’s (TOMY Company, Ltd.) Bit Char-G are some of the world’s smallest pocketsize radio-controlled micro cars, were produced from 2001 to 2004 and were the competitive answer to the hugely popular Takara Digi-Q in Japan. Although the Digi-Q were considerably more popular there, the Bit Char-G seemingly endless upgrade possibilities have made it the top choice for the rest of the world. Availability was also much better to the outside world, than the Digi-Q, making it easier and more affordable to obtain. Fundamentally different to the Digi-Q, Bit Char-G operate on radio frequency and use actual front wheel steering as opposed to Takaras IR control and differential steering. Its Micro B electric motor is an adaptation of mobile phone vibrator technology. The development of this cutting-edge ultra-miniaturized motor allows the Bit Char-G to have an overall length of only 60 mm (about 2.25″) and is so small that you can maneuver it on your desk around coffee mugs, keyboards and other objects. These Days original Bit Char-G in a functional condition are hard to find and there are a lot of clones available all over the internet. But quality and patent ownership are what differentiates the Bit Char-G from its clones and consequently makes them still superior.

Specifications

Each Bit Char-G Kit includes a R/C chassis with a fixed frequency, a body, a motor and a controller. A full charge on its NiCd battery takes 45 seconds and enables a run time of about 3 minutes. The charging station is integrated in the controller, that is equipted with a retractable antenna too. Bit Char-G are fully customizable and upgradeable with various models of electric motors, tires and bodies offered by Tomica and other producers. Some simple and straightforward assembly is required before you can give it a go.

Tips and Maintenance

  • If your Bit Char-G has been unused for a long period have a look if the build-in battery is in a visually good condition and that there is no green or white stuff on its poles and contacts. In that case the battery should be still ok but it is possible that it may not directly charge to full capacity. Recharging and running the model several times will gradually lenghten runtimes then. Green or white stuff on battery poles and contacts indicates battery failure. Then you need to remove the old battery and clean the inside of the chassis carefully and have to put in a new one.

  • If you want to store your Bit Char-G for a longer period of time you should carefully remove the battery first to avoid damage to its electronics by a leaking battery.

  • Bit Char-G react sensitively to dust and uneven road surfaces, so play them on clean and smooth surfaces whenever possible

  • One must always remember that it is not possible to use the same control frequency for 2 or more cars.

  • Micro B 1.0 motor (10.000RPM) provides minimum speed but maximum torque and best control
    Micro B 3.0 motor (30.000RPM) provides maximum speed but minimum torque and poor control (when a beginner)

  • Some sets contain a black and a white motor pinion. The black one is meant to be used for Bit Char-G, the white one is for Bit Racers and does not fit well to Bit Char-G gears.

  • In case your Bit has a problem with its steering this article explains how to fix it
