Default free advertising?

Am wondering, if I list all products I use, do I get free stuff? Is it just a bragging thing? Just curious.... I will list everything I use if It's about bragging....lol

A sig isn't bragging, its to show support to sponsors or represent what brands you use. I don't see a reason to brag.

The RC industry is so inflated you have to pay for even stickers , let alone a $30 hat or t-shirt that likely was made in another country...

Here's the thing about being sponcered. Guys think that all getting sponcered means is free/cheap parts. Wrong. Getting sponcered you basicly become an employee of that company. You need to go out. Promote the products of the company sponcering you, and most importantly you need to HELP the guys at the track. Weather they are using your products or not.

Say you are sponcered by AE and a hotbodies guy at the track is struggling. You need to help him out. Then all he will think about when he gets home is Wow that AE guy sure was a big help, which brings a +1 for AE.

Basicly put into your sponcership what you want to get out of it.

Sadly enough I know a lot of factory drivers who are giding themselfes during the races and do not have the time to give support. This is not a way to help the people who are actually paying the sponsored driver.....

If I only get free stickers then they do not go onto my body, the sponsoring must be something special (more than only a standard discount) before I place stickers.
