Hobby-Sports.com’s 9,000-square-foot hobby emporium buzzes with the sound of revving RC engines and hobbyists perusing the stock of fun-size vehicles and toy parts. Remote-controlled cars weave through a 78’x37’ carpeted racetrack with turns constructed from a CRC Clik-Trak barrier system and speed limits strictly enforced by a Playmobil police officer.
