At Tekno RC, we believe our dealer network is one of the most important aspects of being successful in the marketplace. Our dealers work hard to ensure parts support, track-side assistance and customer service are up to Tekno RC’s standards. This helps to positively promote the brand and increase value in our products. We are introducing the Tekno RC International Dealer Spotlight to recognize the great men and women who work hard to bring our customers the support, local assistance and service that they deserve.
Each month one of our international dealers will be featured with details regarding their shop, how they got involved and where you can find them.

We started working with Bjorn Nagels of RC Speedhouse in October 2015. Getting Bjorn on board was no easy task. It started with detailed conversations through any possible media and in the end we managed to get the ball rolling.
RC Speedhouse is one of the premier 1:8th off road shops in the Benelux area and they are present in all major races. Ensuring Tekno RC drivers are covered as far as parts and technical advice are concerned.
Like many of our dealers, RC Speehouse has their race team attending all major races. Kurt Vanvlemen, Ronny Socquet, Jordy Velder, Rajco Van Der Sluijs, Gerrit and young Bas Beunis are some of the members on the team. So if you happen to be at a race in the area, stop by the RC Speedhouse tent and say hi!

Bjorn Nagels, founder and owner of RC Speedhouse got involved in RC Racing back in 2006 by being completely blow away from the technology involved in RC cars. Like everyone at their early stages, he bought various cars and in 2007 he started racing in the local Truggy cup. Like many RC racers he hasn’t forgotten his first race when he made it to the A-main and got lapped 12 times but was hooked for life!
In 2009 he was tired of waiting for parts in Benelux so he decided to open RC Speedhouse and bought a little van where he kept some boxes with products in the back. It all went fast from there. Now almost 10 years later, Bjorn still enjoys racing as much as he did in the beginning but a lot of things have changed. Fast forward to today where RC Speedhouse has grown to a full shop capable of covering the needs of the most demanding racers. With the addition of Tekno RC Bjorn is convinced that he now offers a greater range of products than ever!
