I have digital copies of every RC car action magazine from 1986 to 2005. If anyone wants a specific copy let me know.

I'd want to see them all. Can you upload a zip file onto a share page somewhere? I'd want to see them all. I sold almost all of mine from 87 to 95 since I got tired of moving them.

Here's a link that I saved from a few years back, though it only covers 86-95.

That's great. Just what I was looking for...the early years scanned in. Thanks!

I have all of my RC Car Action magazines from the first issue all the way up to the 2005 or so.

I subscribed to the digital subscription of RC Car Action so that I could see the archive and look at these old magazines rather than going through my boxes in the garage.

The one thing that is missing from both the RC Car Action archive and the links provided above is the old advertisements. Yes, I'm weird. Part of the thrill of running through the old magazines is seeing the old ads like Tower Hobbies and Stormer Hobbies. I enjoy seeing the ads for the cars that I had, and for those I wanted desperately to buy but never did. The prices always crack me up too.

That is my only complaint, but it's only because I'm weird like that.

I miss the ads with the online versions too. Mostly for the oddities, aftermarket chassis and conversions, transmissions, steering setups, etc.

That is a great link! Saved in favorites

I also have around 50 or so old RC car action, and some other ancient RC magazine varieties from the late 80's-early 2000's.

Of course they aren't mine, nearly everything I had growing up got destroyed or lost somehow lol. But, my father in law died last year and we found his stash - amazing he held on to everything!

I agree, the advertisements are great, I especially love seeing the vintage Clod stuff, might have to go bust them old mags out again for a look!

Oh my thank you so much for this blast from the past.It is inspiring me to start R/C again with my youngest child.
I got to find my name again in the 93 Sept edition with the 93 Pro Am @ the Ranch Pit Shop.
Best memories from my childhood are of that track hanging out with Marcus and Allen.
RIP Ranch Pit Shop.

Every month, I pull out all my back issues of RCCA and R/C Car for that month and review them. Presently, my research has me going after articles on the RC10GT for a restore project. Finding lots of good info from a really fun time. I miss those days and the monthly arrival of magazines in my mailbox.
