Your choice is yours. Mine is mine. Cheers buddy.
Then say it is the availability of spares and not words like "Service Network" , New guys to the Hobby will be put off if it sounds complicated.

And can you give me the name of ONE hobby shop which stocks spares for RC cars in India?

Default How about THREE?

Ok. How about three??

Radical works New delhi. Stocks parts for Himoto Racing.

Model Art stocks for Thunder tiger.

Racetech for HPI.

And CEN racing is also now officially in India. Traxxas is on its way. So they too will have after sales service. Which means spares!

That means all new hobbyists, RC is now going big guns in India too.

Who deals with Traxxas? Radical has stopped saying they are not shipping to India anymore. Real reason, maybe a new dealer. Rotor Sport, Chennai supports only 3 models of Traxxas trucks mostly Nitro.

Could someone post up web links and phone numbers of the dealers who deal in such RC trucks.
And is the price comparable to what are given on their official websites in dollars.

Our friend ICEMAN here has CEN racing. Congratulations.

Traxxas is not yet official in India. The talks are on. Watch this space for more on that one.

As for the autocar show, I have no news on that front. However, the Speedrun Bombay hopefully will showcase major RC players in India.

Lots of hobby/toy shops have Kyosho models. No idea on the spares availability or its official dealer/distribuor. That would be best answered from the toy shop owner itself who has them.

All weblinks and contact numbers are available on the company official websites. Please check for respective brands.

The event is in the planning stage. Will definitely let you know about the updates. I'm waiting for further news myself. And the best part is that its open to all. So any brand can participate. Its the category that has to be met.
