Wicked RC

April 13th, 2010


When I go down route 9 eastbound, I always see the sign for “Wicked RC” and I always wonder what it is and forget to look it up.  I finally I got around to it and asked the manager, Gus, if I could come in and take some pictures and ask him some questions and he was nice enough to say yes.
Wicked RC is remote control race car central. In addition to providing a track for racing, there is a rock course for ATV type remote controlled vehicles. They also offer repair services and have a big wall of motor parts for the fix-it-yourselfer.
They hold races on Mondays and Fridays and also host birthday parties.
The track is made with movable barriers to be able change the course for each race and you can control your car either on the ground level or from the loft type area on the second floor.


I’m not an RC racer but I like that this is something different in Framingham and it actually draws people here. Gus said they get people from NH and RI since there are very few RC racing venues and  there aren’t any this big.  For more information check out their site: http://www.wickedrcracing.com

  1. $350 for a 10 kid birthday party where you race for only one hour and only get 5 cars (my math puts that at each kid getting about 1/2 hour of time). $35 a head seems pretty steep for only about 1/2 hour of “real” fun!

  2. I had a party there for my son about 2 months ago. The kids had a blast, it $350 for racing and the pizza and cake were included, they do a really good job entretaining the kids and keeping the cars running after the kids break them. Don’t find it bad at all.

  3. Gus (the owner) knows his stuff. You will be hard pressed to find a more welcoming RC Shop anywhere. Stop in even if you have never laid your hands on a hobby grade RC before.
