Got to love them 4 pages on how to drift a micro, 2 pages on the us indoor champs. I guess we all have to start drifting micros to get magazine coverage. Pretty sad

Yep, either drift...or run a nitro T-maxx. Then what you love gets LOTS of coverage. That probably explains why I dropped all my RC Mag subscriptions...hmmm...

i did learn that electrical tape on the tires helps and u can install a red led in the exaust pipe. mello yello dialed yeah the green hatch is a killer drift car. U have some of the best drivers at this race and they get 2 pages of coverage. Wait a minute i want a job there i can explain the mains just as good as they did. Paul Lemieux took the lead and didnt look back LOL sad

Racing/racers make up a small amount of the R/C community.
The magazines usually cater to the largest audience(sp?)...

....or you could "support" a race and then provide limited coverage of the event and then wonder why they dont want to hold the race again.

I wonder if the market would support a racer only magazine? XRC does a pretty good job but it would be nice to see an actual "racer" magazine...sort of like the coverage in Autosport for full size cars.

Years ago I tracked down a U.K. magazine and they covered all sort of event even regional type events.

Hey Jamie,
What race would you be talking about that RCCA PROMISED coverage for then did... Next to NOTHING! LOL

The R/C Driver Off Road Madness race will be MUCH better this year.

Does anyone make a quality magazine? Seems they are all mostly ads with some real fluff reviews.
