Default Any Good RC Crawling mags out there?

Hey everyone, I need the 4-1-1. Are there any good magazines dedicated to the great sport of RC Rock Crawling? I know there must be. I've seen some of the long time popular RC mags that will feature a crawler once in a great while, but they usually only touch on it. I need better than that! What are the best magazines out there that I should be reading? (I can't sit in front of the computer on RCC all day...I gotta get something I can take with me to the john too! )
Peace out!

I havn't seen one. I know some 1:1 crawl mags will feature small sections to it, and I have seen some special issues of car action dedicated to it, but to my knowledge there isnt a complete crawler mag for RCers. We just aren't as big as short coarse.

I dont know of any fully dedicated crawler mags but I do know that RCCA is getting a lot more crawler features. I bought the last issue and I was suprised at the amount of crawler action there is. They mentioned that over 90% of the readers rides submitted are scale crawlers. That tells you something.

You have already logged into the best RC Crawling mag there will ever be...rccrawler.com

What more could you want? You can search, content is being added constantly, and you can be in the magazine whenever you want.

This is pretty much the best bet as far as cool mag stuff goes.

Save your money from a subscription and buy a star. Support this site. There is LOADS of info here. Stuff you couldnt even imagine.

Mine won't hold a charge that long anymore, so I was just looking for a backup in case of 'emergency'. Maybe I should just get a new laptop. lol

True. RCCA has been running a few more here and there. I also picked up a copy of Xtreme RC Cars mag not long ago (the July issue 187) which had a write up about the Axial Wraith. What drew me to it was that it had a huge picture of the Axial Wraith on the cover (and it was positioned larger and above a Losi Short Course truck, coincidence? I think not!)

I can see myself doing that in the near future Wildman. So far I like what I've seen.

Magazines WISH they were as good as RCC. Why wait to get info once a month, when you can get it all day long?

If it still works ok you can just buy a new battery for it. I got a larger battery and it lasts a bit longer than the factory battery did. Hell, bring the cable with you too!

Yeah, mine's a Toshiba and it's actually fairly new, well maybe a year and a half old (kind of middle aged in computer years, I know) but it's perfectly good, I do need to get a new battery. A high capacity batt would be good too. Where did you get yours? Can you recommend a good place for laptop batteries?

Yeap smart phone and web browser. I'm on the pot at work right now, I wash my hands before I touch my dick.

Never did like tapatalk though, just preference.
