RC Model Shop Direct was originally created to offer outstanding service and knowledge to all radio controlled enthusiasts. We wanted to create something different to the traditional model shop by also offering the RC enthusiast a fantastic venue for RC Racing, RC Drifting, RC Rock Crawling all under one roof.
Most indoor RC tracks in the UK are temporary tracks that are laid out and put away on the day of the meeting. Most of them are in Sport Centre halls on a weekend. At RC Model Shop Direct we can offer RC drifting and practice sessions every day within our permanent indoor rc tracks.
We currently hold evening meetings every Tuesday and Friday night. These nights are great fun where you can also meet other likeminded radio controlled enthlasis. We also have an outdoor temporary race track where we have fun race meetings. When we do race we use the latest BBK timing software along with the AMB timing system that can accept personal transponders but don’t worry if your radio controlled model does not have a transponder, we can count your laps manually.

RC Drifting has been in the UK for around 7 years but there aren’t many official clubs that promote the hobby of RC Drifting nor any rc model shops that have a venue like ours! Here at RC Model Shop Direct we have one of if not the biggest RC Drift circuit in the UK. Friday night is “Friday Night Drift Night” at RC Model Shop Direct where we transform the whole venue into a RC Drift venue. What makes the night special is the atmosphere we have within the place and Friday night is all about having fun and talking to likeminded RC Drift enthusiasts. We currently have a resident RC Drift team #Lowsliders that use the venue every week and offer help and advice to anyone that comes along.
We also have the UK’s largest indoor RC Rock Crawling mountain. This is a realistic rock crawling landscape for 1/10th scale rock crawlers. There is a course marked out to test your ability but watch out for the swamp!
Please remember with every RC Kit you purchase from us we also give you free venue vouchers to use your new model within our venue. This saving you up to a further £18!
