...the best -- R/C car followed by R/C Driver. What are your favorites?

We hate you too...

futureal's note: This thread was split from another, so it picks up an already-running conversation. So no, Derek does not just randomly post that he hates people.

At least, not usually...

Hey Derek,

Take it easy ...some of my comments were just a little bit tongue-in-cheek ...and BTW, regardless, you could be mature and accept the feedback graciously rather than retorting that '....you hate me' when you have never even met me!!! I like chicks too, just not in r/c car magazines.

Take care,

Khal

Practice what you preach. You can say you hate me, but I can't say I hate you...

So I still hate you. I'm not sure what gracious feedback you left for me, but I accept it. Thank you for that. I'm not sure what 3 pictures of a model does to you to make you "hate" a magazine. I guess you hate the newspaper, TV, and every other place a model is used.


Oh and I still hate you...

Yes, there was, and bashing other publications or readers was not it

I've had my debates with DerekB a couple times about the chick stuff, and it always ends with the understanding that they feel they're reaching their target audience, and if you don't like the stuff in their mag...then your probably not their target audience! I admit, I'm not in that target audience, so I don't buy it. No biggie for either side.

RCCA seems to be heading in Xtreme's direction. Which again, if they're reaching their target readership, mo powa to 'em. But its not for me.

RC Car is right there with RC Driver when I think of how much I like reading them. Its just that the production quality of some of their mags just does seem as high.

Which brings me to RC Driver. It just seems 'right'. Great quality, great articles, and I don't have to get dirty looks from my wife as she sees the pics in it as she walks by! I've bought a couple issues already and plan on picking up a subscription as soon as my RCCA subscription runs out.

A lot of people have taken up the 'Highlander series' position that "there can be only one". I don't see that as the case. As of right now, I find myself subscribing to one mag and periodically buying issues of the others that interest me. I don't see that changing. The only thing that will change is which mag I'm subscribed to. RC Driver here I come!

I get all four of the big mag's now. I like them all for different reasons. I like to compare the reviews. I really like the photo work ing XRC and RC Car. I'd have to say I've grown to like the review format that RC Driver uses the best.
