4.0 out of 5 stars Old School January 15, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I subscribed to this magazine for a number of years in high school, and pick up issues of interest, such as their buyer's guides, from the news stand every once in a while.

Car Action is the premiere magazine in the RC Car category. Covering everything from the cutting edge, sponsored racers, to "Readers' Rides", this magazine will keep you up to date and fuel your passion for RC Cars. Even the advertising can be informative, as you get to see what is available in the market.

Although I haven't picked on up personally in sometime now, I have to make an old school recommendation to all RC Car enthusiasts. Pick up an issue of RC Car action, and see for yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Traxxas, Traxxas? Traxxas Traxxas Traxxas! November 26, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm recently getting back in to RC cars, and figured the best way to catch up was to grab a couple of magazines.

On one hand, you have RC Driver, which is a pretty broad publication that tries to cover beginners to enthusiasts.

On the other, you have this magazine, which is almost a parody of itself.

The January '13 issue seems to be pushing the "hot ladies love RC cars!" angle (with "hot" being incredibly subjective) when you manage to find a page that doesn't have something to do with Traxxas. Granted, as the holiday issue, it literally has a Traxxas catalog in the middle -- but that catalog dominates the entire magazine.

What little original content there is seems to be rehashing descriptions you could read on any hobby shop's site, and apparently, publishing MSRP (or any price) on any of the products is a major faux pas in the editors' eyes. I guess if I loved Traxxas and RTR cars as much as most Radio Control Car Action's readers appear to, I'd probably know what the prices are without needing to be told.

I don't hate it, but I really don't understand why it's the more expensive of the two RC car magazines, when it has the least amount of original content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money July 11, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I bought this as another gift for my boyfriend, who is an RC Car fanatic. It is a great publication for the latest in the hobby and for generating ideas for those who build and /or paint their own cars, as my guy does. We will be renewing this subscription!
