Default RC on TV!!!!!!

Jammin Jay and Lance Norick are scheduled to be on SPEED TV's Wind Tunnel tonight to talk about the R/C and the ROAR Nats.

Congrats to who ever put this together - this is the type of exposure R/C needs to move forward. More people seeing it, gets more people involved!!!

Can't wait to see what they do for the segment.

It was actually a good little spot. Not much pumpin up the Jammin' cars but making it easy for people to see. Lance Norick was very clear in stating that you can get into the sport with everything you need for $400-600. That should turn some people's head's.

As more people are exposed, exposure will become better. Time will tell if our sport/hobby will be the next NASCAR

That is an excellent idea ... the more of us that do e-mail the TV networks will show that there is an interest in seeing RC on TV. The networks will look at the hobby more seriously if we all voice our "want" to see some programing on TV. How awesome would it be able to see the national events live on TV - imagine being able to see all the A-main action from the comfort of your own home (if you can't make it to the event yourself) - couple that with some interviews of the grass-roots racers and you have a winner.

I have an awesome idea for a show - if any TV producers out there race RC - PM me and we can talk.
