Iím putting together a multi-part guide for beginners and I could use some assistance in reviewing the guide to make it better. The purpose of the guide is to answer the question, ďIím new to on-road nitro, what should I get?Ē Part 1 is just the basics; part 2 will get into selecting a car (RTR versus kit) and part 3 will provide a general overview of selecting other equipment if the person doesnít buy an RTR.
Part 1 of the guide is online [http://nitrokb.netne.net/new/index.html
] and this is what I need assistance with:
1. Accuracy. The last thing I want to do is put out misinformation. I donít claim to be an expert, so it is possible that Iíve got something wrong or am not communicating it correctly.
2. Content. Is this enough information? What am I missing? I just want the bare minimum for an impulse shopper to go to the hobby store and be able to speak somewhat intelligently about what he wants. Parts 2 and 3 will get deeper into selecting specific items.
3. Tone. If any part of it is condescending, please let me know. Iím blind to such things at times.
4. Audience. The intended audience is someone new to nitro and as applicable, their parents. Is this guide helpful enough for parents?
5. Would this guide discourage someone from buying a nitro car? If so, why?
7. If you own
a hobby store and/or a track, would you post this guide? If not, why? What would you change? Keep in mind, that someone could print this guide and show up with it in your store.
8. Grammar. My nemesis for sure! Feel free to point out errors.
9. Wording. Is there a better way to state something so that it is clearer, makes more sense or is more informative? Suggestions are welcomed.
10. Would you feel comfortable emailing a link to this guide to your neighbors, relatives and friends? If not, why?
I know everyoneís got an opinion Ė good or bad. Letís hear it!
Thanks! Appreciate the help!
