    Vintage Traxxas RCCA Articles

    Ok Traxxas vintage fans, I have good news . Today I found a website that has very high quality scans of Radio Control Car Action magazines from 1986 to 2005. If you are interested you will need to download them and then use WinZip to access the files in PDF.

    The Traxxas SRT article can be found in the February 1995 issue.
    Traxxas TCP - October 1995
    TRX-3 - November 1993
    LS-II - September 1993
    TRX-1 - February 1992
    Blue Eagle-LS - October 1992

    Defiantly worth the read in my opinion. Here is the link.

    This link has been removed. Please see the last post in this thread.

    If anyone knows the year and month RCCA did an article on other vintage Traxxas vehicles post it here so we can have a reference.

    It's been a few years since I last checked, but you could view every page of every RCCA magazine on their website. I think you had to purchase a subscription though.

    Nice find!

    Which issue has the review of the Wildcat?

    Very sweet indeed!

    I downloaded and saved these a while back from a fella on rc10talk, when the links were still available.

    Here are a few issues I know of other VTG Traxxas cars.

    JULY 88' FIERO GTP

    APRIL 90' SLEDGEHAMMER

    JUNE 90' BULLET

    SEPT 90' RTR BULLET

    OCT 90' RADICATOR

    DEC 90' TRX-EAGLE

    AUG 91' HAWK

    Great reading forsure!

    Nice ad! I miss flipping through magazines and seeing those Traxxas ads. Nowadays they have a 50+ or 70+ description instead of the "National Champion" status.

    BTW, when and where did the TRX-1 sweep the A through E mains at a ROAR National Championship? That's news to me.................even though I read and believed that ad back in the early 90's.

    That must have been the largest gathering of Traxxas cars at a race since the start of SCT racing.

    What I like about these old pictures...the truck fits the environment and how detail they are. would do anything to go back in those days and have that very moment. Rc today doesn't feel the same.

    I'm sorry to rain on the parade, but I had to edit and delete several posts in this thread.

    While I am not an expert on copyright law, I'm quite positive that scanning a magazine and reproducing those images (e.g. by posting them on-line) is against the law. Magazines, including their words and images, are protected under copyright laws and should not be reproduced without the copyright owner's (or owners') permission. Given that RCCA required people to have a paid subscription to view older magazines, I'm guessing that all of the images in this thread were reproduced without their expressed permission.
