Do not waste your time going to this hobby shop. They hardly have anything and the prices is not worth your time.

I tried to buy stuff on several occasions and they either didn't have the product or the prices was way too high. Their prices are almost double that of victory rc or odyssey hobby.

They also say they will order more stuff 5 weeks later still don't have the part you need. I don't see them lasting more than year.

Although i did here something about another hobby shop opening soon. Close to baker rd don't know where though.

I purchased my first remote control at this hobby store, they
opened the package, put free batteries in, and started the
car to make sure it ran right. I thought this was great.
I brought the car home, wrecked it,amd broke the axle. Brought back to hobby store, they fixed for me. It only cost me the part, and 10.00 for repair time. The guys were friendly and answered all my questions.

A bit dissapointed when i visited this store. Not alot to choose from. And the younger guy i talked to when i was their was rude. Tried to ask a simple question about parts on redcat cars compared to HPI and didnt even answer my question fully. As well as i asked a general question in regards to engine tuning that any shop owner should know and he gave me the wrong answer. Note: you dont lean your car out when its cold you richen it. And they dont have alot a parts in stock as well as way over priced. I could buy parts and cars from other redcat dealers in the area alot cheaper.

Also Jeremy whats the name of that shop hopefully they have more to choose from, and someone that actually knows more about everything.

I don't really share your full hate, but will say i did have the same issue where it took forever to get a part for my redcat car from them.

Second to above. This is typical of Baytown's crap stain they call shopping here. I need parts, they aren't even open for business. Very disappointing...

A full week and nobody has answered the phone. It's hard to support a local shop when it's not open.
