R/C Car and Xtreme RC are my two favorites. Any Hi-Torque publication (R/C Car) seems to be the best in what they cover, like Motocross Action and Dirt Bike for example.

Here is how I rank em'

1)xtreme rc.
2)rc driver
3)rc car action
4)hi torques rc car

Xtreme rc car is my favorite because it is well written, has good information/tips and also has some humor thrown in. Just my opinion.

RC car is run & parts tested by racers/people who can race.All others are run & reviews done by people who sometimes go to tracks.I subscribe to all except driver,I like reading about RC crap even if the the mag uses idiots.I simply put on the brain filter when reading except for RC driver theirs no filter big enough to strain the crap info those retards spout.

I love X-treme rc cars mag for their how to's, reveiws and most of all the side bars, they crack me up

We have an all Australian mag called 'racing lines' but compared to XRC it's crap.

Xtreme Rc for me! Though some of their kit reviewers are subpar (copy and pasting from previous reviews) , the overall quality of the mag, as per my opinion, is still above others.

unfortunately there isn't a BS-filter big enough for any of them.
either use hoochie-mamas to attract the junior high readers, or their reviews and write-ups are 6 months behind the times

Ever read RC Car? They already have their MP9 review out! Their is no BS in RC Car mag, they take it to the next level and actualy tell you when something sucks! And they actualy know how to drive so they can actualy test their cars. All the other mags that I have read are just stupid and I cant hardly read them, they just make me angry. The other mags have some good articles every so often, but RC Car has only good articles.
