A little about me!



When ever I wanted something in life, I wouldn’t stop until I got what I had wanted! Before I had a name for The RC Chop Shop, this what I did to get the things I wanted! After Moving out I realized there was more things I needed so I could no longer really afford the things I wanted. In the past year I have decided to take this a bit more seriously then before! Friends would joke about my toy car chop shop, so I felt the name was rather perfect!

If you are not familiar with how things work around here, don’t worry! I buy RC cars, even entire collections! I break everything down to bare bones and sell back to other hobbyist at a fair price. Most items you will see are USED and everything will be in various conditions.

I look forward to making some sort of connection with each and every one of you!
