thxs Physixx, I checked that one out...unfortunately the RC cars they have there are way to advanced for my son. I plan to buy a few of them, cause I am sure my son will find a way to break em

Circuit City (Radio Shack) is a great place to get cheap, simple RC cars. Lots of choices too.

The Source for nice ricer ones to mod, if not that hobby/gamer shop in metro next to the nerd DnD shop is a good shop to go to.
