    We are doing a little research on starting a new RC magazine geared only towards the "car" part of the RC market. Would cover nitro and electric, road course, paved oval and dirt oval, maybe occasional drag racing.
    Would cover all aspects; parts and car reviews, races, lots of tech and mods, in house project cars, readers project cars and more. Will focus entirely on CARS...more towards the competition aspect.
    Looking for some input and suggestions...anyone think it would be a good read??!!

    regards

    Mark - your double post was removed. One thread should be more than enough on this topic.

    If I had put it in the right spot on the board it would have been enough...did not realize I put it in the classifieds. Can you relocate it to the on road forum???

    thanks

    Been working on ideas for the mag...what do you think of this?
    The magazine is designed and printed more like a reference piece. It is printed on heavier paper with a heavy cover and is three hole punched so you can keep them filed in a three ring binder for quick reference.
    The publication may only be 24 pages but it is full of tech and product info relating to CARS. Advertising may take the form of sponsorship of different sections and articles which could take up less pages. The table of contents is on the front cover making it easy to "reference" any articles you are searching for. The publication would be available at hobby shops/tracks and by subscrition. Would still be a full color publication.
    Would be pro and rookie sections for the advanced and entry level racer. Attempts would be made to involve readers in testing and using equipment to get REAL world input and results.
    An extensive web site would support the publication and could offer interactive product reviews and more....
    We would rely heavily on real world application of product and tech.

    Sounds good...personally I am into offroad, but I'm sure you will do fine.

    this concept could be applied to another publication that caters to the offroad crowd...
