R/C Cars, Trucks, Buggies & Boats

Specialty Hobby Shop - Flint, MI

Looking for an R/C CAR, truck, buggy or boat? We’ve got them

At Rider’s you will find R/C Buggies, Trucks and Cars, ranging from entry level to competition, from rock crawlers to road racers to off road trucks and buggies, in nitro or electric.  While most of our products are ready to run, we also stock build it yourself kits from Tamiya and others.  We not only sell the R/C vehicles, but we also sell replacement parts for them. We make it a rule to only sell cars that have replacement parts available separately.

In addition to helping you fix your truck or buggy, Rider’s has lots of parts to upgrade it. We’ve got hop-up kits and accessories such as wheels and rims, shocks, motors, gears, speed controls and a large selection of custom aluminum parts.  Our R/C car department employees are all R/C enthusiasts themselves and have used the products that we sell.  They can help you pick the right accessories and show you how to install them.  We also do repairs if you don’t have the time, tools or expertise to do it yourself.

We stock a wide range of batteries and battery chargers for both NiMh and Lithium, as well as brushless motor upgrades.  For nitro vehicles and boats we carry a full range of fuel and starting accessories.  We carry upgrade radio systems, upgrade and replacement servos and all the other accessories you need.

Rider’s also carries R/C boats, from small pool racers to off shore gas models, with sizes and styles in between to fit your budget.  We stock Deep Vee’s, Tunnel Hulls, Swamp Boats, as well as a Sailboat or two.
