Default RC Car Action 1987 issues

Hello I'm in the process of trying to complete my RCCA collection and I'm having trouble finding information on the 1987 year for my checklist.

I've learned that 1986 was the first year split into 4 issues (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) and know that in 1988 it was released monthly, but the info I have on 1987 is spotty. From what I've gathered the first issue for 1987 was called Winter 1987 and have found a photo of someone else's collection that shows about 7 magazines but can't read the dates, so I have no idea if after the winter issue it was released monthly or if there were specials involved etc...

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Winter 87 was the first issue..carrying over the previous years format. The February issue is when they switched to bi-monthly. If you read the last paragraph of February’s Editor page, he mentions the switch.
