Everyone at the shop is super helpful and understanding. Thanks for the great service and helping me with my first R/C purchase.

The owner is either a bad salesman or has no clue to what he is talking about. I picked up a vintage RC 10 L road car from a garage sale for 20 bucks. Took it in and asked for parts he laughed at me and said i would be better off buying a new car from him as no parts are available. I found Tower Hobbies had the parts from a R5 that would fit. The car does about 50 mph now and he was wrong. Next I get a xtm XLB. Take it in and he puts me down in front of other customers and states that the engine is bad and it will cost 200 bucks to get the car running. Wrong again. I put some nitro in it and it started right up. Does about 50 in the grass and is the only thing keeping me sane in these hard times of no work. I cannot afford expensive parts or new cars right now. And it is funny how slow his shop is. Thats because he has burned enough customers and will probably lose everything. From now on I will go to ONE HOBBIES in El Mirage.

Why would you take in a car accross the valley to get fixed if it wasn't broken? Silly.

I bought a starter box from him. The thing looked ok upon removing it from the box, but after deeper inspection it had clearly been used to scavenge parts for anther box. In addition it did not accept the batter I purchased for it. I asked 5 times if the battery would work with it. Finally, it was not sufficiently adjustable for my truck to have the flywheel hit the starter wheel.

I was trying to save a few bucks in buying the OFNA box. Better to just go spend the money. And watch out for this guy. He always seems to "KNOW" everything, but doesn't have the patience for others ideas. I've been in RC as long as he has, I'm just on the spend side of the counter.

Not going back.

Wow, "unemployed" sounds a little sensitive. I have been there several times and have never had a bad experience. I actually came on today to write a good review for the store because I found the owner to be genuinely helpful and knowlegable about cars. Just moved to HI and wish that there were stores like Quicks here.

If you have been in RC cars as long as he has why were u asking him 5 times if the battery worked? Kind of sounds like you KNOW it all already haha

Stopped in this shop cause at the time I was on that side of town. And here is my review, I am new to the RC scene so I was putting my trust in someone to guide me along the way in what I needed to purchase to keep me going on an rc track longer. Well, after talking with the owner of the shop, which I had no bad experience with and the shop is very nice and well organized, he sold me two batteries and a quick charger. Well, needless to say after checking further into prices on batteries that are Nihm's and only 7.2v 1600's I could have purchased them somewhere else for way less. Each battery was basically $33 and the charger was priced right. So, I was in a nut shell lied to and ripped off. He told me that the batteries would last way longer all of one minute longer (I timed them vs. a 7.2v 1200) and I could have purchased the 2 batteries for $30. Here's my beef about it, I am willing to fully support the local businesses, but don't rip me off or lie to me. I feel like he took advantage of the situation to make a sale. Now, I'm not saying I won't go back there if I'm on that side of town cause I might need something and it could be priced right. But, being taken advantage and lied to is just not right and bad for business in my opinion. Especially, with a new customer. Guess, his overhead must be high. Like I said before, I have no problem with the the shop and doing business there again and I am even willing to give him a second chance. Just this time I know what to look for price wise. Just look and price shop is what I am saying. Have a good one.

response to bdaddy..... unemployed aint from Scottsdale but Glendale... next to Surprise.. imagine that. And I agree with unemployed the owner of Quicks is a dick.. His parter however is cool . I drive road cars, highly modded savage, and I fly both electric and gas planes, Blah Blah.. The owner thinks he is all knowing but Ive already said that..DICK!! Perhaps I will open a hobby place in Surprise, with good service and put this moron out... perhaps even hire Mr unemployed in GLENDALE.
