Yeah, your right. I was looking the booth for HARDCORE RACING to see if they have titanium chassis for MTX4, FIORONI option parts and TEAM ORION for their new wasp rev engine.

Rich - That was the same impression I got. I was done with the show in less than an hour. Spent the rest of the afternoon at Downtown Disney before heading back to Norcal. I think the industry as a whole is hurting compared to years in the past. No Hardcore, Happy Time, Much-More, Orion/Peak, e-Hobbies, just to name a few.

Same here we were inventing things to do after about an hour. I wonder if turn out is down do to costs to exhibit or the global economy has that much of a factor?

I bet it has something to do with gas prices.

I hope I'm not stepping on anyones toes here (RC Tech admins/mods), but I have been, and still am, posting some very detailed and exclusive coverage from RCX 2006 and even the RC Car Action Readers Choice Awards that you won't find anywhere else. Just over 1500 photos coming to nearly 5 gigabytes.

You do have to register, but it is worth it. I've got all the latest from HPI, Apogee, Kyosho, Castle Creations, Pro-Line, etc. I will be posting up the non-product-specific stuff tommorrow, such as the rock crawler hill, chicks, etc. I didn't see Courtney Day anywhere though.
