Zero RC is a hobby shop operated by RC expert Zero in Garcia, San Fierro, San Andreas. The shop is owned by an unnamed landlord up until 1992, when the landlord decides to sell the shop. Zero had been living there and knew that he would have nowhere to live should someone buy it. In desperation, Zero calls Carl Johnson pleading for help. CJ, having just met Zero, obliges, raises $30,000, and buys the property, allowing Zero to continue his residence there. This also unlocks the Zero mission strand, all of which revolve around defeating Zero's rival, Berkley. Completion of the three Zero missions is optional in terms of the overall storyline, but is mandatory for achieving 100% completion. After completing the missions, Zero RC becomes an asset for Carl.
The store has several model vehicles, some of them based on the vehicles of San Andreas which includes the Swat Van 92, Hydra, U.S.S. Liberty, Jester, Turismo, NRG-500, and ZR-350. The shop also has action figures of past GTA and Manhunt characters, including Lance Vance, Tommy Vercetti, James Earl Cash and Piggsy.
- A major glitch will occur in the game if the player has a two-star wanted level or more while buying the RC Shop. Exiting the shop (with the wanted level) disables the script for Zero's phone call, thus disabling all of the shop's missions and the asset property. It is still unconfirmed if Zero calls the player after the wanted level disappears.
- The shop's banner has a background from one of the Japanese flags, which may be a reference to the Japanese RC manufacturer Tamiya, although it could just be a coincidence.
