I think you need to expand on SSJChar's idea and for the on-road cars have a Top Gear Stig type character who takes the lastest chassis's and races them around the same circuit each month. Even reviewing new speedos, batteries and motors that way so they all get bench-marked around a circuit rather than the various dyno and tech-chart stuff we get at the moment.

The First 3 shows are pretty much nailed down, (and episode 2 is in my opinion quite a bit better than ep 1) however we have noted alot of really good feedback and are hoping to introduce a "hints / tips / setups" section which will be hosted by as about as big a name as you can get!

As regards the Stig idea (which will mean nothing to you guys from the US) it just isn't possible due to the way the show is made as we don't have a fixed base to film from.

Furter more you couldn't compare 2 cars on the same circuit in absolute time terms as the tracks change so much with temperature and use and also the set up options on the cars are so varied - which can mean one mans "dialed" car is another mans "pig"

You ask for comments:

I lost interest a after a couple of minutes of the racing footage.

Good first attempt. Commentary and explanation of the rc raciing was very good. the shots need to be tighted up. The wided shots make the racing look like daglo mice runing around. Slo mo close ups will show cars sliding and crashes look gracefu as opposed to a flash of cars all over in a couple of milliseconds.

you wil need at least a three camera shoot. probably all hand held. the cars are to fast to shoot from camer stands. The framing all should reflect full scale framing. ground level, close ups. with shots of the lead and in pack battles.
