I think you may be reffering to Radio Control Hobbies on the DIY network. I don't really think that show is very popular, but if there is a torrent out there I couldn't find it. Sorry, but I don't think there are too many people out there ripping episodes for torrents..... It's just not that big yet. The show also goes into all the different R/C models.... like boats, off-road cars, on-road cars, planes, and helicopters. It's not just one thing in general.

As far as televised event coverage...... Well, even in the USA where you can put almost anything on TV and have people still gawk at it we're still waiting. If you ask me it's time to ditch stupid shows like that new dance competition and American Idol and get some Snowbird coverage on there instead. I can see it now, Saturday primetime! Yeah..... I'm dreaming!

I watch Inside RC when I remember what time it's on, I usually remember like an hour later... it's OK, since I'm into many aspects of the RC hobby I like to see more than just cars. I think the website is insiderc.com .

Honestly, I wouldn't watch televised RC racing, it's boring enough being a spectator live at a track....

It would be boring to see the races but really informative to show the pits of Drake, Cav, Saxton, Tebo, etc....
Also if they did TV reviews on cars that were new like the AE belt driven car, or the ST Pro, or the GT2, or the 8ight. I would like to see them take a RTR and hop it up to where its dependable and handles better for the weekend sportsman racer, bashing trucks like the Savage too.
Edit: There should be commercials too. I think HobbyPeople has one in SoCal.

Look if they can put The World Championship of Dominos on TV they can do something with R/C to make it watchable.It would'nt have to be live as they could edit it and make it very interesting.

in the uk we do have alot of tv which is shit for eg. Bid-up-tv,QVC and all the crap that you get on free view so they could change them but i dont see the point as it will be so boring to watch rc as you will be doing nothing.

there is a website where you can watch live rc racing but its mostly in the states http://liverc.rccars.com/fantasy_rc.php

I turned on the TV the other day and Dave Attell was hosting the National Rock, Paper, Scissors Championship. I'd much rather watch some RC racing.

There's a poll on The Outdoor Channel's website asking if you watch Inside RC . It's like a 97% No, if you all want to see more RC on TV it might be wise to go vote yes whether or not you watch it. I'm sure they're using the polls to see what shows to keep and can...

Look here I remeber they put in the past the episodes of Dropin on the website so you can download and watch them when you wanted. It would be possible to do the same for the RC so people can watch it worldwide. I like to see a coverage for the upcoming worlds in ITaly.

There will be an announcement in the very near future about an RC Racing TV programme for the UK (and probably Mainland Europe)

The programme (currently 8 x 30 mins) will air in the autumn on the Sky platform. (not Sky itself!)

It will contain race action from the World Championships in Italy

As well as news, reviews and interviews across the spectrum of RC car racing

I know, because I'm one of the people making it - and we're beginning filming on Friday
