Zoom Room is on the top of my list. They offer good advice and recommendations. The Zoom Room crew is very knowledgeable. Orders come in very quick. Lastly, they are honest, which I really treasure in a good hobby shop. With their new store, even better!

Now that I got back into Kyosho Mini-Z's. I would have to say ZZ Hobby is #1 for the Z's. The owner is very professional, especially in explaining how each option part work and what they improve in terms of handling. They also have a big selection of parts and bodies.

For me. It will be Action Hobbies here in Brampton (Steeles just past Dixie). Gives me good prices, most especially when paying cash (got my T-Maxx and E-Maxx there). Lots of spare parts for my trucks too.

Next is Zoom Room. Owner is a great guy, awesome customer service. Prices are reasonable too. If only ZR is just here in our area, heck I'll be there every weekend.

although i haven't been as active in the hobby as i'd like to be. ZoomRoom gets my vote. Henry and Roz are awesome, knowlegable and great people to deal with. always friendly, fairly priced - what more could you ask for.

I like any shop that sponsors races, To me that shows they try and give something back to the race community.
As for my favourite shop...I guess I will have to say the largest in Ontario which is LEADING EDGE HOBBIES.
They dont stock much for the higher end offroad units but at least they can generally get it in within 3 days and the one owner Mike is top notch in customer service.

The Hobby Shoppe in Orangeville gets my vote. As Narly said Steve just opened last year and is building stock based on what the area hobbyists are using. If he doesn't have it, he will within two to three days.

That place has been my second home lately...LOL

Hobby Hobby would be next.

I stopped by Action Hobbies last year...once...and never again. The attitude I got there was ridiculous!

for me it is PINNACLE HOBBY on the corner of markham rd. (4 and 16th. I have been going there for well over 10 years, Dave, Ron and an honourable mention for Bernie!! are always honest about every product, always go out of there way to find what you need and make you happy. I live over an hour away and pass 4 or 5 stores to go there. Everytime I walk in there it is like I'm walking into my buddies house even if it has been months. Thanks again guys
