Just to clarify a bit on this point and give a bit more background. Every dollar that comes into this site (in addition to a lot of out of pocket money), goes right back into the site.

In addition to large amounts of time spent working, running a site like this takes money. Everything from bandwidth costs, software licenses, equipment purchases and repairs, etc all add up. And the more we grow this site and community, the more those costs go up.

On that note - we are growing, and have a lot of initiatives being worked on behind the scenes to make this site and community even better. It may go unnoticed, but the traffic to this site has increased over 30% in just the last few months. And it continues to increase.

As mentioned earlier, this site is very light on ads in comparison to most community based sites this size. In addition, the ads are mainly given out to smaller R/C companies at large discounts to help them - and the hobby grow. We are trying to keep it this way, and subscriptions help us do that - in addition to give out special perks in return.

So that's where the subscription contributions go; and a special thanks to those who do subscribe. Stay tuned for a lot of great stuff coming soon.

Well so far I like everything but the new logo and font used for site buttons. The logo seems very 70's to me. I would like to see a more race inspired logo. "Which I could help make by the way".

@[[john]]: The signatures are currently limited right now in length (paying or otherwise). I am sure someone will complain but it is pretty liberal, you can get probably 5 lines of text in there.
5 lines is more than enough....I don't really think we needed the 20 lines of people posting how many cars they had and all the shops they have been too..

Thanks for the upgrade...looking good.
