Default Speed channel RC

f1larry had a great idea on another post he had a link to the SPEED chanel and thier feedback page. Maybe if we all band together in an effort to promote RC then they will listen. If we all sent them feedback every day they would have to listen just so they wouldnt have to listen to us anymore.

this is his post:

Just think if a Channel like Speed TV came out to an R/C race to cover it. I think they should. It would be a perfect fit for the offseason. I think it is pretty safe to say that most R/C racers are motor sport enthusiast as well. I think it would be pretty cool if they came out to some of the major races and put it on TV. That would help promote the hobby even more.

Shane maybe with your influence you can help make it happen.

If you agree Here's a link to send Speed TV feedback. http://www.speedtv.com/feedback/

great Idea Larry

I sent them an Email. Let do this and get them to cover a big race. Maybe the worlds! That's coming up. That would be perfect.

bah... wind tunnel doesn't really appeal to me... mainly because 90% is some sort of NASCAR type discussion.... well, that's what i nocited the 2 or 3 times that i did watch it... fell asleep 2 out of the 3 times, literally...

tuned in to it to watch their R/C topic... was cool that it was R/C (and actually brought a smile to my face), yet more NASCAR type stuff... probably because of the relation to Tony Stewart... it's a start though...
