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 race meeting. Most of them are in Sport Centre halls on a weekend. At RC Model Shop Direct we can offer RC racing and practice sessions every day within our permanent indoor race track.
We currently hold race meetings every Tuesday night and Saturday afternoons with practice session’s available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning. Within the venue we use the latest BBK timing software along with the AMB timing system that can accept personal transponders. Projected onto the 6ft by 6ft race board is the current race results so others can see in real time who is winning and how they are progressing in the race.
RC Drifting has been in the UK for around 7 years but there is not many official clubs that promote the hobby of RC Drifting. 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 #Ratrap RC that use the venue every week and offer help and advice to anyone that comes along. We also drift every other Sunday and this day is designed to help people improve their RC Drifting ability where we add some competition work into the day.
Future plans for our RC Venue is to create a RC Rock Crawling section. This will be an indoor realistic rock crawling landscape for 1/10th scale rock crawlers.
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!
