Default 4wd electric magazine?

Anyone know any magazine that's dedicated to 4wd electric? Or better yet, 4wd electric buggies? Or overall a good magazine for offroad electric?

If you want to read reviews on 4wd buggys, then there is a few on this website oople.com - more indepth than you'll find in rcca for sure.

oople. Will you be doing a review of the SB V2 Pro. Looks to be a winner:

As Posted by Dave G:

"NEWEST Addition to team, TQ's CT State Champs"

Howard Cadrain piloted his MRC/ACADEMY SBV2 Pro buggy to the TQ position over many factory sponsored AE/Losi Drivers this past weekend at Wolcott hobby in Wolcott CT. Howard drove his production V2 Pro buggy flawlessly to TQ by more then 3 seconds over 2nd place qualifier. Howard had some first turn troubles and ended up 3rd overall in the main. He also set the fastest laps of the day in the main event!!!

CONGRATS HOWARD!

Does look a good car and I have been in contact with the distributors - I have a lack of time at the moment so don't want to take any more on until I can be sure of putting in 100% effort

The car is a rare sight over here in the UK so it would be good to see it get more exposure.

Haaha I hardly see any reviews about the SB V2. I tried googling it, but I didn't get any reviews. My sister is dealing with some guy on this forum about a trade for a V2. So hopefully I'll get it soon. Does anyone own one, and wants to give a pesonal review? Those are always the best kind of reviews. ^_^

I had the Sport version of the V2 and I liked the car after a few changes better than my V1 Pro, especially on the loose surface I ran it on. I would say that the one you are looking at (it has all the hop ups, correct?) should be very good. Very durable car and quite capable.

I think I'm getting the regular version with the plastic chassis. Do you think the graphite conversion is worth the $150? I'm thinking of buying the fiberlyte chassis set. it comes out to about $95, with the chassis, top deck, fron/rear towers all in Carbon Fiber.

Looks good.
