why would i pay the $30. so i can look at a blank screen, i'll pass. and the guys who did pay that cant watch it have ever rite to be pissed. i dont care what it cost, u pay for a service u should get it. not part of it, but the whole thing.

That's the whole thing .....................guys DID pay $30 and still can't get on .

There is obviously a problem with LiveRc being victims of their own success.........however I do not feel the least bit sorry for them . The reason for that is ......they are still taking membership money well knowing they are unable to provide the service you are paying for ..........weather $30 is alot of money or not .........it makes no difference .

Do you think everyone just happens to be registering right at this time so they can get on next weekend when there is nothing going on ??? If they decided to stop registering new members until after this weekend in an attempt to provide better service to their already registered members I might think differently .

To say that LiveRc had no idea that the response to this race would be so overwhelming is just irresponsible on their part . LiveRc is really great thing bringing these races to everyone ..........just hope it all gets worked out by the weekend .

I agree 100% with you about the people that have paid and have not gotten their membership yet.I was referring to the people complaining because they can't freeload and watch for nothing.As far as the coverage goes yesterday's was fantastic from what I saw!

I voiced some concerns and I think LiveRC has listened to what we are all saying and are trying the rectify the problems. I appreciate their efforts to keep us paying supporters happy.

You want to say I'm whining, whatever. I spent $30 for the bonus lap membership and even pre-ordered the $20 DVD so I can get on to see the qualifying for THIS RACE. I won't even be around Sunday to watch the race because I will be racing. Myself and others have paid our money, but the accounts aren't being updated immediately as stated on their own website here:

"A Bonus Lap membership is available for a low annual fee of $30. Payments can be made through PayPal, and your account will be automatically upgraded immediately after you submit payment. "

So far this morning I'm still a standard member. So I now have only today and part of Saturday to watch the qualifying for my expenses, and yes it's only $50 that I have put out, but if you are independently wealthy, I will leave my Paypal address and you can deposit $50 in my account and $30 in everybodies elses account that has paid and can't get on to watch. I wish I lived in your area so I could dump out 2 gallons of your favorite nitro fuel at your feet and see your expression. That's how I feel right now. And don't give me the internet tough guy reply of fighting with me, I would just say, "stop your whining".
I totally understand the technical difficulties they are having with the feed. I'm not complaining about that. Not updating existing accounts almost 24hrs later is bordering on laughable. Don't offer the option of upgrading memberships if you don't have the manpower on hand to make it happen. Sorry for the rant, but it's always easier when it isn't "your money" somebody else is playing with.

Like I said before, be greatful someone is making an attempt to bring this to the masses. Im sure this guy who owns live rc isnt rich, probably holds a day job, and does this because he's passionate about the hobby. RC will probably not ever be mainstream. You wont see the Worlds on Fox Sports. RC racing ranks up there with major league foosball, its not for everyone. Give this guy a break, im sure he's working his ass off to get this resolved. Im sure it isnt easy (or cheap)to bring high bandwidth internet connection out to a farm field.

I was not even looking at video. I just wanted to watch the scoring. Maybe they should just allow scoring to be viewed for free and have video pfv. Thats all I am saying. I think its unfair to pull the rug out from under everybody. How would you feel if you were wactching the Super Bowl and when Halftime starts NBC says everybody must pay to see the rest of the game.

I am suprise how well the $380 Hot Bodies D8 is doing. I was look at the MBX6 or RC8, now I have to add the D8. I know Amezuca and Hara are great drivers, but anyone see them doing this well?
