Anyone have Radio Race Car, 1988 Optima Mid review?

Post by sheriff »

I know it's a long shot fellas, but it's probably January or February 1988 issue Radio Race Car.

I've seen the Model Car Magazine scans on here (great) but would love to read the RRC one again!

Thanks :)

Hey mate, is this the one you're looking for? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Radio-Race-Car-International-Magazine-March-1988-feat-Kyosho-Optima-Mid-/261039489938?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item3cc72a8392

If so, I have it in front of me, and can scan it today if needed...

Alex you legend!! That's the fella. Thanks very much. If you get a minute, and can scan the review, that would be fab.

I'll probably bid on that magazine too!

Thanks again

Always interesting to read period reviews... and to see that the UK reviewers weren't any better than the French or the Americans... and I thought RCCA was barely credible :lol:

Thanks alex :)
