Question about RC Thunder Tumbler Rc Car

Bought 2 Thunder Tumblers but one remote controls both. How do you change the frequency so they work independently for racing? The box says there are 2 frequencies but I don't know how to change it.

The box shouldn't say "two frequencies for competitive racing." That is misleading.

Thunder Tumbler comes in two frequencies-27 MHz and 49 MHz. In the 2015 model, the red and blue cars that I have are both 27 MHz. It designates this on the front of the box. I assume that the black one is 49 MHz.

SOURCE: bought 2 thunder tumblers and

The Red & Blue Versions of this both work on 27MHz while the Black works on 49MHz. You should have been advised of this when purchasing the 2 units but I supose that depends where they were purchased from.

I bought 2 Thunder tumbler radio control rally cars. They don't come with instructions for how to change the frequency so they can race. Any idea how to do this?

Type the thunder tumbler in Fixya's search. This is two way radios. There are a LOT of posts on your RC trucks. If new, I suggest you return them.

I bought 3 fans and all are getting signals from one remote. How do I change each one so they work independently?

You need to change the frequency in two of the receivers & transmitters. That's a low-end store brand for Lowes so I don't know what kind of receiver you have. Usually there are four dip switches in the receiver & transmitter. Just match them.

Remote frequency for my cable receiver seems to be the same as the remote frequency for my TV

Hi Thor!
You have to select "Cable" on the universal remote on the cable to change the channels on the cable box.
And press "TV" on that remote to change or access TV Functions.
Or use only the TV remote only to change Inputs on the TV.
Good Luck,

I got 2 360 rally car thunder tumblers and when we turn both the cars on one controller will control both cars at the same time. Is there any way to fix this? Cause it's very hard to race each other when...

Most of the store bought RC cars support a few channels and autoselect the channel or they are tied to the controller. Some of the better (hobbist) RC cars have a channel select on the underneath. You could check for that but if these are the 9.99 stocking stuffer specials, you may be out of luck.

We purchased two Barbie corvettes for twins and it seems that one remote controls both cars. Is there a different setting where they can control their own car?

Hi Janet, unfortunately this I'd due to the transmitter frequency being the same! This should have been pointed out to you when purchasing both items together! The packaging should indicate this too! I race remote control cars and on the higher end transmitters the frequency can be changed so all racers are on different frequencies but this would not be the case for you!
