Default WHY NO COVERAGE FOR OTHER CLASSES??

Redrc, Neobuggy, Rcspecial......if you read these threads at all. Quick question why is there no coverage on ALLLLLLL the other CLASSES n podium finishers! It's sad that a race that big with the majority being regular folks, but only the Elite class is talked about.......some folks traveled half way around the world n won there class n it wasn't talked about. +40 class. Open class. Lengends class. I mean the regulars make up most of the race n get no coverage, it's just a bit disturbing......smh

Yep sounds typical, but if these guys in lower class's etc etc stopped doing it, there wont be the pro class unless they start forking out thier own money they wont have lol

Yeah even if they don't report on the class at least just putting up a video on demand of all the A Main's would be fantastic.

OMG WHY DOESN'T ESPN COVER MY LITTLE LEAGUE?! OR MY POP WARNER FOOTBALL LEAGUE?!

Oh wait... that's right... because NO ONE CARES. Just like every major sporting event, the media, especially media like redrc, neobuggy, etc. with limited funding, will only cover the pro classes. Heck, most of the "News" on redrc is manufacturer/vendor supplied... so maybe you should ask Associated why they aren't submitting news to redrc about how well their car did in the 40+ class at DNC.

All of these classes were covered as part of LiveRC's coverage.

I understand.........but I'm not saying full coverage, just a simple podium pic with 1st thru 3rd names How expensive could that be

Little League and Pop Warner are showed on ESPN and Pop Warner is still on ESPN on demand. just sayin.

But I dont know, maybe I was watching some other race, but I saw most of the 1/8 scale racing. Remember this is a 8th scale race. The other stuff is side shows.

No I'm not saying that, all of the 1/8 racing was shown on liverc. I'm saying the podiums were not shown.....there were open class podiums, +40 podiums, in electric n nitro etc.... Like rightnow you prob can't tell me who won the Open class 1/8th nitro buggy n what car he was driving that's what I'm talking about...........it could have been me
