Let us take some of the stress out of holiday gift buying this season by giving you more time to qualify for price adjustments. Price adjustments on purchases are available 10/8/2022 until 12/25/22. If an item you buy has a price reduction before Christmas, we will credit the difference upon request, so you can shop confidently knowing your price is guaranteed.
All credits will be issued as Loyalty Club Points on your Tower Hobbies account.
Of the model RC car categories, RC kits require the most building time and effort. That’s not necessarily a disadvantage. You gain the pride of knowing that you’ve successfully put together a fast-moving RC vehicle by yourself. And you learn a great deal about how it works — experience that will help you upgrade its performance and quickly repair any possible damage. Replacement parts as well as “hop-ups” are available from Tower Hobbies.
The majority of RC cars and trucks aimed at first-time RC modelers fall into the other two groups. Both come almost entirely factory-assembled. RTR (or Ready-to-Run) RC models let you start driving almost immediately after opening the box. They come fully equipped with a power plant and radio system already installed. Prebuilt models (also known as ARR, or Almost Ready-to-Run) are usually identical to RTRs but don’t include a radio, in case you have one already or would rather choose your own.
