This year James asked for a remote control car for Christmas. Wouldn’t you know it, Santa found a nice remote control car on the shelves of Toys R Us for a reasonable price. James enjoyed using his little remote control Corvette throughout the house and all was well.
We took the boys to R/C excitement, in the next town over in Fitchburg, MA. RC Excitement is New England’s Premier R/C Racing Complex with 3 different style tracks for R/C racing. They are a fully stocked R/C Pro shop, with an experienced and helpful staff of R/C hobbyists.
At their pro hobby shop the real remote control (R/C) cars and trucks go for hundreds of dollars and travel at speeds up to 40 MPH+.
But the great thing is at R/C excitement you can rent these real R/C trucks and use them on their indoor carpeted track (one of a few tracks!) until their batteries runs out for just $15! It’s certainly a great way to try out these more expensive R/C vehicles before buying one.
Here is one of the staff giving the boys the low-down on the rules. She stressed that these are not bumper trucks and this is not a demolition derby – any damage to the trucks, the user foots the bill. We paid for their rentals, but any damage? It comes out of their piggy banks!
And they’re off! Here are some shots of the trucks going off jumps, crashing into walls and flipping onto their backs (which seemed unavoidable for novice drivers like us!)
Oh, yes, I just had to try it too. Grant managed to get a shot of my truck when it was mobile – within seconds it was either hung up on the track or somehow disabled.
For hours of operation and an events schedule be sure to check out R/C Excitement. Don’t forget they sell trucks, cars, airplanes – just about any R/C vehicle that you can think of right in their pro hobby shop.
As for James, now that he has driven one of these super fast, indestructible trucks at R/C Excitement, he hasn’t touched his R/C Corvette once! Boys and their toys! (All I can say is save your money James.)
