Was there another thread? Wow, I'm gone for a week and everything falls apart! heh heh

I like Xtreme (rc411.com) - if you count the number of pages with content on them versus the amount of pages with only ads on them, Xtreme has nearly TWICE the ratio of content to ads - that means that compared to the other magazines Xtreme had nearly twice as much content (with regards to size) as the others - and, in the case of the December issue, the competitor had a 282 page mag, but only had as much content as Xtreme with 162 pages (not counting the back cover inside and out. . .)

What about quality of content,do the guys who write the mag know their stuff and do serious reviews and articles or is it more a begginer mag?

Jun - To answer your question from teh other thread. RCCI is nice magazine. Plenty of info but I rarely buy it. It is geared more towards Electric racers which I have little interest in now. I prefer the RCRacer mag as it has nice Nitro Info and lots of it.

And plenty of good reviews about all the different cars.

Personally i like Nitro magazine. I like the reviews of the kits, and the how to sections. The extreme RC mag looks interesting, where can i find it? I never seen it in any of the stores. Then again i live in cowsville, VA.

Does anyone know where to get RC World magazine. My local Japanese bookstore stopped carrying them. It's one nice mag with a glossy cover, puts RCCA to shame(but it's in Japanese).
