    Love the panel! Has anyone been to "Ridemakerz" yet? What is the price range for making your own RC car?

    Hi Sue! I took my son to Ridemakerz a few weeks ago, and he really enjoyed it. (I think his Dad enjoyed it even more!)  At Ridemakerz, you choose a base car and then customize it with wheels, sounds, stickers and more. You can choose a base car for as little as $10, with the  prices ranging up to almost $40. The base price includes wheels, rims, and one sound. You could choose to upgrade those items for an additional charge. There were free stickers you could use to decorate your car, or you could purchase stickers, spoilers, mufflers, lights, etc. If you want to drive your car by radio remote-control, that feature costs $25, plus the cost of batteries for the remote and the car.

    My son chose a $15 car and stuck with the stock wheels, hubs, and sound. He added remote control and purchased the rechargeable battery along with a spoiler and a few other items to customize his car, and our total cost was around $65. If you really want a souped-up car, you could easily spend $100. Ridemakerz is a fun experience, and now that we're home, my son (and husband) still enjoy racing the car around the house, which my little dogs find quite annoying!

    Hope this helps! Please feel free to ask if you have more questions!
