We all do it, go out to the book store or get subscriptions to the are favorite RC car magazines to keep up to date right?
Well we post pics of our cars now lets see who has the most RC car related magazines. I have an entire collection of RCCA starting from 1996 and many others, in all I have 130 mags. they stand 66 inches high. Beat that, I will post pics when I can get the camera away from my wife (her christmas gift).

you guys just ever look back at those old mags and see what the cool and hip things were at the time, ohh how far we've gone

So how big is that stack steve, that just rcca? or other mags too

I have tons but I have been getting rid of a lot of them lately. I have a year of rcdriver, 4 years of Rcca, a year of 4wheeler magazine, 3 years of dirtwheels, a year of atv magazine, 3 years of gamepro... This adds up to a BIG stack of magazines.

Every issue since 2002.

01-04-2005, 05:05 PM
I've got enough Motor Trend, Sport Compact Car, Road & Track, RCCA, RC Driver, and a few ATV mags to last me a lifetime.

Too many, thats how many mags I have..

01-04-2005, 05:08 PM
I've been subscribed to RCCA since 02 and buy all the other rc mags at the news stand when I get a chance. I also have every modern drummer mag since 03. I think they should create a mag called "Backyard Basher" ya know...all about bashing, how to bash proof your rc, sick trick sections, tough truck shootouts, hold events like the big jump & freestyle competitions and then write about them, the bashers corner, Interveiw some no name people like me who bash, whats under whats his names hood,the damage report, bash test the new rc's,ect..ect..I'd buy it, heck I'd subscribe to it.BTW if anyone decides to do this..you better contact me to be "the official master basher" "the king of all bashers" of"Backyard Basher Magazine". cause ya know..it's my idea...teehee :p ;) :D

i have most of RCN issues i think i dont have about 4 issues

01-05-2005, 05:51 AM
Awsome Thanx Mr Pond....
That Buggy Looks alot Like My Impact Baja Las vagas Buggy....

01-05-2005, 09:43 AM
It should, it's the 4WD version of the Las Vegas buggy. It uses the same suspension and chassis, it's just missing the front drivetrain. ;)

01-05-2005, 09:52 AM
Wow...that buggy looks pretty awsome, I was only 11 years old when it came out and was still playing with my Nikko cars. If I knew about that I might have gotten into hobby grade RC a long long time ago.

01-05-2005, 03:05 PM
Hey Steve thanks for the Pic, I always wondered what the first issue looked like! C.J. you should post a pic of your LV buggy so we can all admire. :D

Steve Pond.... What is your oldest RC car that you have? Do you have any pics of it????

01-05-2005, 06:46 PM
Its in Bits and Peices At the Moment..(the rear end is anyways).
I'll get some Pics Up soon...
I'll put it next to My Kanai 2 so you can compare how far the Kosho 1/8 buggys have come.. ;)

01-05-2005, 08:33 PM
i got the febuary issue of XRC and RCCA

01-05-2005, 09:42 PM
My house is being taken over by magazines - over the holidays I hauled 300lbs of old mags to the recycling center and I could easily do that again (need too!). I have 36 back issues mixed, mostly RC Nitro and RCCA, with a few XRC and RC Driver mixed in. Unfortunately, my stack of Cycle World is making a come back.

I do have a stack of professional journals (JPT, SPWLA, SPE and TLE) that thanks to 2 side by side 8' bookcases is 8ft tall. Those are all looking for a library to donate too.

01-06-2005, 09:32 AM
Since alot of you have old RCCA issues, would anybody be interested in selling their first edition car action mag and also selling the issue that introduces the T-Maxx.Or are these readily available for anyone.

01-07-2005, 12:24 AM
A whole bunch that I use for insulation from the cold blistery winters when I am not driving.
