Great place for a rc hobby enthusiast. The guy Gary that works there is very knowledgeable and provides great customer service. The other staff members there are also courteous and helpful.

Nice assortment but one staff member in particular was very rude. Very know it all and scolding my 15 year old son that he is not taking care of equipment. Kid feels bad enough that car broke and goes there for help and to ask questions and gets yelled at? Come on, the prices are high, would only go to the store for the interaction so it should be fun and helpful. I can buy online . Yes, staff is knowledgeable but making shopping pleasant should be a priority at a hobby shop.
Although the radio shack website states that this is one o of their retailers, they only have a small cabinet of RS products, and what little they have is available for cheaper, and with higher quality, at Walmart!

I needed parts for my XMAXX, and they had everything I needed! Two different bodies, and all of my suspension parts, charger, batteries you name it! Even upgraded my springs! The staff is very passionate about RC, they enjoy talking about the subject, and helping you decide how to fix/upgrade your machine. Great experience, and A LOT of inventory!!! My truck looks great again and its ready to run! Thanks guys, Ill be back!!

If you have a Traxxas RC vehicle they carry just about every part or accessory you'd ever need. Tons of hobby items, so glad to have a store like this in the neighborhood. The folks that work their are very passionate about the business.
