My initial response was "that's a first" and not much more. I read on another forum a bunch of people Traxxas bashing, but I think that the magazine is a great advertizing tool and could be quite helpful to Traxxas enthusiasts. If it isn't completely packed full of adds for their products, but had some tuning tips and little things to make your truck or car perform a little better it could be great. You would think the company that engineered a car would have some insights into how it all works. Obviously I haven't seen one yet, but maybe Traxxas will use it to sell out pages to aftermarket companies that sell Traxxas upgrades like to RPM and Integy. It has potential to be good, but also a lot of potential to be bad. I'm excited to pick a copy of one up, but I certainly don't see it overtaking something like my favorite, RC Car Action Magazine.
Going to subscribe? What are you thinking?
I'm definitely going to subscribe. I hope they do some aftermarket stuff.

I just don't see the point of such a magazine. I can come to the forums and get all the info I need here and just a couple other forums as well. Magazine subscriptions in general are in decline. What kind of content are we talking about being inside the mag? Whats going to be the advantage of buying such a magazine. Am I going to find out some special/secret info before the rest of the world?
It appears as marketing gimmick to me! Just my .02cents...

Simple.... It's called exposure...
Hopefully it will have updates of Traxxas 1:1 racing as well as RC racing and development.... Sure wouldn't mind reading more from people like Steve Slayden.

This is a great way to draw folks into the hobby and possibly get more in depth info on thier sponsorships along with thier partners. It's great that they will be able to promote thier business and the hobby more itself.

Im excited about this magazine. I read RCCaraction also, but I tend to stay more involved with Traxxas. It would be cool having a tips section and some project pics and so on. Plus its good bathroom material...
One shot.....One kill, no exceptions
I keep on trying to predict what the magazine will be like, but there's really no way to know until it comes out. This thread is just getting me more excited.
Free subscription for non US customers?

I'll definitely see what they decide to do with the first issue. I used to love RC Car Action and RC Nitro but the latter was terminated and RCCA has declined since 2004. If they offer valuable tips and tuning suggestions, setup articles, product reviews, and some cool builds, I'd be interested.
I would like to have one How about a free magazine to everyone on here: JK I know that would be imposable but they could send me one
I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran
Sounds like a good place to read a non-biased review on a product.
