Rupert -- Protoform was there with their new Dodge R/T oval bodyRupert said:I am up at the Chicago show and I am disappointed that not one Oval manufacture is set up at the show. Except AE and they don't have on Oval car on display. How will this class survive if it is not supported by the manufactures
I know Hardcore was in Vegas the week before, maybe they thought their "show" budget would be better spent on Vegas than Chicago. I also heard that the Vegas show was a true "hobby" show and very little RC.............[email protected] said:I thought the show was a little smaller than last years... and some manufactures did not even bother to show up... such as Hardcore, Integy and others... (not that they reflect Oval directly)... as a whole, it was a good show and nice to see and talk with some top people.
Pictures and story coming soon at: www.steelcityhobbies.com.

I have my own thought of way the R/C show is in chicago, first and foremost I always thought there had to be a HUGE investment from Great Planes.[email protected] said:This (Chicago) is one of the biggest R/C shows of the year... why would any sound manufacture opt not to show up? I almost went to Vegas myself.... made the right choice from what it sounds like. I heard it (Vegas) was a complete R/C flop. Strange because last year when I heard there was going to be a Vegas show... I thought it would kill the Chicago show in a matter of 5 years. From going to trade shows in Vegas, that is the place for any large Expo... but the R/C Expo is not all that large compared to many other industries. And there is a reason why the show is in Chicago... I'm sure someone will chime in here.
