Radio Race Car International

Saw the best Mini-z article I've ever seen in a RC Car Magazine this weekend. It was in Radio Race Car International August 2010, I believe it's out of England. Six pages long, did a short history of Mini-z, and then focused on the MR-03. Touched on the Stafford Mini-z racers club and talked a fair amount about HFAY, which I thought was cool. PN Racing was mentioned also for there parts. I can't remember the name of the person who wrote it, Tuffs maybe? He was really trying to get the point across about how Mini-z are misunderstood as "just toys" but are more then that, and are legitimate RC racers. Next month is going to be more of a focus on the AWD. This is just a quick summary of what I got from it in a general sense. The information is basic, nothing new to someone who's been around, I was just encouraged at the amount of information and attention Mini-z were given, and looks like will be given from this publication. I've seen this magazine before, should not be hard to find, if interested.

Unfortunatly, no. I did not buy the magazine, and there website does not offer anything.

This was the best I could do: http://www.radioracecar.com/issues/?i=4216

They must have just put out the September issue, some of those articals you can view.

Thanks for the information. Either we get the magazine later, or the August issue shouldn't have been on the shelf.
