    Well, are you going to read them? Do you like the content thats in it? Can you relate the content from the mag into real life situations for you? Do you know whats good for you and not from tips sections?

    You have to make some desions yourself. We cant help all your problems. Just go out, buy a few different issues, read them (dont skim) and decide if you think you would like to continue on with getting those.

    Ok, im not trying to be rude, discoruage you or anything else, but do some reasearch. Go look around at stores, ask people around. You cant just ask other people. Cause if your going to only read electrics, then dont worry. Dont even bother. You wont learn anything. You have to understand all aspects of RC (not fully, but to some extent) to gain any knoledge and learn new things. And for a year its about $25 - $30... Its about $5 an issue individually.

    well. I brough 2 of them, one was RCcaraction, another one was 2005 buyer's guide
    and most of the topics in there are alll about nitro car or electric off road.

    and I asked the people in LHS, and they said they don't have any electric on road
    ok, and I only found a few pages about electric on road like three or four out of 250 pages

    so what now?

    Thats because your new to the scene. To me it makes perfect sence, its not electric season. This is when the sun is out, and its not crumby outside, so everyone would rather run gas instead of electrics. Electrics are HUGE when fall / winter rolls around.
