You know its really weird...

I picked up a copy of SCC three months ago cause they
had an article about their project FD (they
shake-and-baked the o-rings) and it was actually a
pretty interesting article if not overly technical is
still gave a pretty decent view of raotary internals
how htey work (and how they don't! :) for the novice.

I bought the next months issue thinking they'd finish
up the feature (doing a monster rebuild and single
turbo conversion) but nothing. I guess they like to
build supsense or SOMEthing :) Anyway, that issue had
an AWESOME article about Lincoln Electric's welding
school up in Ohio. Somehting I knew nothing about but
now plan to attend. Also there was a decent article
about how to cut time off your drag runs through good
habits and whatnot. And to top it off a great writup
on the SWEETEST -73 rx-3 I think I've ever seen.

This month (The Z issue) they feature a nice FD that's
working its way down from 12s to 9s (not impossible,
but optimistic). PLUS that article about the REPU and
7s. Always a lot of good tuning info for boosters and
non-boosters alike. Brakes, exhaust, etc. Stuff
common to all performance cars.

I went from dismissing it as a 'Ricer-rag' to putting
it second to GRMS on my favourite mags list. I only
mention any of this cause it was such a shock to me
that it was as good as it is, esp. after seeing stuff
like "Superstreet" and "Turbo" magazine out there.

You may not find REPU stuff in there every month but
there's decent rotary content, and other stuff that
matters if you're into any of hte RX's too.
