You want 5 Pro drivers who are sponsored to participate in a unbiased shoot out?

I want a competent POTUS.....

I think they would need more time, bit hard to judge multiple cars in one day when every driver would most likely prefer different set ups to suit there driving styles.
Would most likely need a full day for each car so they could get to know it & therefor give a better judgement on all aspects.
But like mentioned above, getting an unbiased opinion may be a bit hard, maybe just great drivers who have no sponsorship would be better.

That would be assume. Nevertheless, with magazine sells at an all time low, you would think they would do something like this to spark sells again.

I remember Xtreme RC Cars buggy shootouts... all the top notch buggies, identical running gear (same engine / pipes, same radio gear, same tires etc.) It was really great and seemed really unbiased. Last one I remember was Sep. '05, six buggies: GS Avenger Pro, Thunder Tiger EB4 S3, Xray XB8, Mugen MBX5 Prospec, Jammin X1CR Pro, and Kyosho MP777 SP1. Good stuff...

The last time XRC did the shootout, it cost them +15K. I dont see it happening again anytime soon.

Sponsored drivers lie through their teeth, one week the best brand on earth is X brand, few weeks later Y brand is sooo much better and they just can't believe how badly X brand was holding them back!

I just don't care for their opinions on anything other than setups and carburation etc, any product-related matter and you just can't take anything they say as being worth a damn.

(Disclaimer: may not apply to ALL of them, but a lot of them)
