Default Which Mag for Electric Offroad?

While I'm sure all the magazines cover most aspects of RC, are there any that have a concentration on electric offroad these days? I want to subscribe to a mag but I want to avoid one that focus's mostly on nitro.

Thanks!

They are all pretty much the same. They all have the same reviews within a month of each other. I had subscriptions to like 3 of them and that is what I noticed....

RC Driver magazine has some pretty good stuff, those guys still race electric off-road locally when they can. I don't think any of the magazines concentrate on electric though.

Thanks for the replies. I was leaning toward RC Driver or RCCA. I guess I'll just toss a coin.

RC Car Action is loaded with nitro stuff.
Xtreme RC Cars has really good mix of all forms; nitro offroad, electric offroad and onroad with great how-to's and some HOT women.
Great Magazine!

Maybe I'm laying a guilt trip on ya FOOLIO. But I carry RCDriver and XRC Cars. I know you save a lot of money on subscriptions, but maybe you don't want EVERY issue. You may save dough by only buying what you REALLY want. Just a thought.

Hey that doesn't mean that I still won't pickup and occasional issue of the magazine I choose not to subscribe too...

Well, let's be realistic here. If I was buying the magazine just for the girls...I would probably be buying a magazine that is, shall we say, more focused on their assets rather than RC cars...

Take the girls out and I think they still have the best mag..., but nothing wrong with a little bonus right?
