Default On Road RC Racer...mini magazine?

Hey guys. I used to publish an auto racing magazine and am getting back into on road nitro touring cars after a couple years off. Disapointed in the coverage in RC magazines...lack of.
I am starting a high end monthly newsletter for the RC hobby in Georgia. I am also interested in starting a national high end newsletter/mini magazine for the on road segment of the hobby.
So, I am putting some feelers out to see if you guys think there might be interest in such a publication? It would be 4-color and probably a typical magazine size. All on road...1/10, 1/8, nitro and electric. Tech, product reviews, newbie tips, big event coverage.

I have also posted this on the on road nitro forum...fyi.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mark Lutes

This could be very interesting. Mags these days are full of nitro offroad and monster trucks. It'd be neat to see more onroad including 12th scale. Good luck.

Wow, that would be great to see a segment specific magazine. If you need any help, let me know. I like to write, and used to be the editor of my Middle School's newspaper (I am in 9th grade now). Let me know if you need people to write for it because I am a machine when it comes to writing.

That would be a great idea, especially if it would help to get more people into the hobby. I own a small hobby shop in Northern Virginia. Would be glad to help distribute it to the public....

Hmmm, might be an interesting perspective for the younger crowd. I will keep you on file.
