Default Need some help please!! Research paper :)

One of my professors tells me I can write my research paper on whatever I want. So naturally, I chose rc cars and I like my truggies the best. Just wanted to know if anyone knew any good books or websites I could use for reference. I have found some but I really looking for off road stuff.
Example:
History of Nitro Truggy-first one made???
Nitro Truggy and Buggy evolution???-Found some good stuff from Kyosho, any others?

Anything along those lines would be great. Thank in advance.

Neobuggy has a lot of evolution and progress in one of their 2010 Worlds articles, it was about someone who had been to and raced all the races since 1990.
