Okay , you get the cars and hopups to test . Are they free and are you allowed to keep them ? If you do , do you have a room to keep all the cars or do the writers get to keep them ? Can you get stuff for free that you will use for yourselves and not for the magazine ? Do you give stuff to your friends and family .

Some we get to keep , some we don ' t . The ones we keep we ' ll continue to test , or maybe save for a later comparison . Occassionally I ' ve given cars that were finished testing to local racers that really try hard but can ' t seem to get their tattered , beat - up old cars to run well . It doesn ' t happen too often , but they always go to someone who really needs it and most of all , didn ' t ask for it .

i wondered that too . in an older issue , i think it was a tamiya with a red golf body , you said it was in your " kits to be built asao pile " i think . then it hit me , i was wow ! that job would kick *****! do the companys just send you parts and kits and stuff and give them to you ? or do they say if you test it you keep it for advertising purposes ? or do they just tell you in advance and have a company rep . come over and test it with you ? that sounds cool . i would love to have all that stuff coming in the mail to me . every day would be like christmas . and you would know all the new info on stuff . do you ever leak out some private info at the track accidentally ? or your testing a new car at a track , and draw a huge crowd , and people take pictures , and quote you , and post the info on your new kit on the internet and riun it for the maG ?
sorry for rambling lol , just kinda curious .

You guys need to lay off Chris Chianelli's hair. I like the way it looks like a little light brown grass fire burning out of control on top of his head.

Anyone remember when Chris left RCCA to do the rock band thing? I've still got his "last" issue somewhere. Wasn't that '87 or '88?
