DarBro RC Model Shop are here to help you get the most out of your car and to keep it running at peak performance.

We are registered with most mainstream RC hobby suppliers and will do our best to have you up and running as soon as possible. Some of the brands we have worked with so far are Traxxas, Habao, HPI, Losi, FTX, to name a few. Both nitro, petrol and electric are all supported.

On assessing your car, we will then be able to give you an estimate to complete the repair job and have it sent back to you. Most jobs can be done within the first hour’s labour charge. It’s rare we have to charge a second hour.

If you have WhatsApp we can keep you updated on the progress of your repair.

We do not use After Run Oil after we have completed an engine job as most of the time folks want to get driving straight away after they collect. Please ask for After Run Oil and how to use it if you do not have any. It’s a very important part of owning and running a Nitro Engine.

For any other enquiries related to this service, please fill out the contact form.
