    Question Good rc magazine?

    Hi guys and gals.
    Im looking for a good rc magazine to subscribe too.
    I recently picked up a copy of Radio Control Car Action and i like it but it's got more electic cars for my taste.
    I own a t-maxx 3.3, Revo 3.3, and a Nitro Rustler 2.5 so im deff. looking for a magazine more focused on nitro trucks. Anyone know of some good magazines focused on nitro rc trucks? My LHS just shut down and there's not another one till about 120 miles so i have to have it delivered.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I get Radio Control Car Action, and it has more nitros than electrics. There may be a few issues with more electrics, but it always seems that there are more nitros.

    rc-driver is good but they dont do as much traxxas stuff as HPI, lost, or smaller brands. They never even tested the 3.3s, 12t-Titans, or other new models. I sure as heck hope they test the VXL and new e-maxx, they have great reviews that graph the speed and acceleration of each model they test I like that. I asked a traxxas employee on the forum why RC-driver was so behind I thought it had to do with traxxas not liking them but he didnt know why
    I memorized pi to 200 digits!

    Xtreme RC cars is good and its pretty balanced this months issue they tes the new emaxx, and shows what it takes to get the VXL rustler to do 70. then it has a whole bunch of other stuff in it too

    I think RC driver is having a 2 for one subscription deal. So if you have a buddy you can split the cost and both get 1/2 off of the reg price. I can't find it on the website, but I know one of the blow-in cards from one of my son's recent mags had that offer. He usually gets RC driver and the Extreme RC titled one

    i read rc car action, but it has a TON of ads. you have to go through like 10 pages of ads for each page of actual articles.

    I have RC Car Action and just started subscribing to Xtreme RC. So far I like Xtreme RC better.
