You're putting your trust in an R/C dealer - why RC Hobby Explosion?


Here are 10 reasons why RC Hobby Explosion is the best choice for you:

1) Free Shipping Promotions - Throughout the store we have tons of Free Shipping promotions. Brands like Savox, DHK, Associated, and GMade always ship free, and most Traxxas trucks now have free shipping. We can't always offer free shipping on everything, but even when we don't have a free shipping promotion, we will have a low-price fixed rate shipping option for you to keep your cost as low as possible.

2) No Bull Advertising - We don't bait and switch you with advertised deals that don't really exist. Many of our competition lure you in with sale items that look too good to be true and then trick you into navigating to the products they really want you to buy. We offer great deals and competitive pricing that you can depend on.

3) Centrally Located - We're located in far north Texas, which means that a large part of our delivery area is only 1 to 2 days by ground service. Even our farthest zone is only 4 business days, so we can get you your order fast!

4) Same Day Shipping - Get your order in before 12 noon CST and it ships same day in most cases. If fact, we do everything we can to get all of the orders that come in after 12pm out the same day, too. If you have a special situation and need your order shipped the same day and it's after 12pm, just call us and we'll do our best to get you taken care of.

5) Competitive Pricing - If you've made it to this page, you've probably already noticed that our prices are incredibly low. We spend hours each day checking out the other guys to make sure we're giving the best everyday pricing available.

6) Shipping Options - From low cost economy USPS shipping to expedited FedEx overnight service, we give you lots of options to choose from.

7) A Friendly and Knowledgeable Sales Staff - If you call us with questions, you won't talk to someone whose only job is to take your order. We have a large staff of experienced customer service reps who understand the R/C industry and can help you make the best choice for your R/C needs.

8) Huge Product Selection with Great Parts Support - We carry thousands of top-quality R/C trucks, cars, boats, airplanes and helicopters with a huge parts and accessories department to get you everything you need. Did you know that we carry over 2,000 parts and upgrades just for Traxxas?

9) Easy to Navigate Website - Having tons of great products doesn't matter if you can't find them. We have designed our website to help you find what you're looking for in as few clicks as possible.

10) Fast and Easy Checkout - Some websites have you go through 3 to 4 pages of data entry just to checkout - at RC Hobby Explosion, we have a one-page checkout so you can place your order quickly and get back to what you were doing.


AND HERE'S ONE BIG BONUS REASON TO BUY FROM RC HOBBY EXPLOSION:

11) You're Supporting the R/C Industry! - We are the heart of the R/C industry, and that heart is quickly being killed by Amazon. Online and brick-and-mortar R/C dealers are being destroyed by Amazon's mission to take over the world of e-commerce (read below).

Dont Buy On Amazon

PLEASE SUPPORT THE R/C INDUSTRY BY PURCHASING THROUGH OFFICIAL ONLINE AND BRICK-AND-MORTAR R/C DEALERS THAT ARE COMMITTED TO THE R/C INDUSTRY AND IT'S FUTURE. HERE'S WHY:


  • EVERY PURCHASE MADE ON AMAZON MOVES ONE MORE R/C DEALER CLOSER TO GOING OUT OF BUSINESS.
  • IN A TIGHT MARGIN INDUSTRY LIKE OURS, 90% OF DEALER PROFITS GO TO AMAZON COMMISSIONS, LEAVING THE R/C DEALER WITH ALMOST NOTHING.
  • ESSENTIALLY, THE ONLY ONE MAKING ANY MONEY ON AMAZON IS AMAZON.
  • AMAZON CAN'T GIVE YOU THE PHONE SUPPORT, PERSONALIZED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, AND QUALITY CATEGORIZATION OF PRODUCTS TO MAKE YOUR R/C PURCHASING FUN AND EASY (TRY FINDING A LIST OF PARTS FOR YOUR TRUCK ON AMAZON).
  • WITH AMAZON YOU WILL USUALLY PAY HIGH SALES TAX CHARGES - WITH US, WE ONLY CHARGE TAX ON TEXAS ORDERS!
  • THE FUTURE OF OUR INDUSTRY IS IN JEOPARDY - IT'S ALL UP TO YOU!
