Hi Everyone,

This is the first ever issue from rccartips.com. Hope I
can really help you enjoy the hobby by providing tips
and sharing my own personal experience with the hobby.

Below is a timeline of the rccartips.com website.

January 1 - I love RC cars, so I decided to put
up a web site that promotes the hobby. And on
this day, www.rccartips.com was born.

About 1 new subscriber per day to the newsletter.

January 2 to 26 - Less than 10 visitors per day
to the website. This is to be expected, as
search sites such as Google and Yahoo have yet
to index www.rccartips.com.

January 27 - Traffic jumped to 80 visitors per
day! When I checked, Google had indexed my site
and was the source for visitors.

January 28 - Alexa.com ranking of 1,900,000.

(Alexa.com is an indicator of popular sites, 
Yahoo getting a ranking of 1)

February 5 - Traffic has risen to about 100
visitors per day. Alexa ranking is now around

About 5 new subscribers per day to the newsletter.

This 1 month old site has actually surpassed
my 3 year old Philippines Web Tutorial site


I attribute this success to one Internet
Marketing Guru, Ken Envoy. His tips do seem
to work (based on what I have achieved so far
with www.rccartips.com)

I am now proud to be part of his affiliate
program, and will not hesitate to endorse

The Best Upgrade for Your RC Car

Every time I buy a new remote control car, the first
hop-up item I buy are ball bearings.

Ball bearings will improve the speed of your car, and
increase its durability and reliability.

But note, not all ball bearings are of the same quality.
Try to buy from well known brands such as Associated,
Duratrax, and Tamiya.

In terms of performance, below are the rankings:

1. High quality ball bearings
2. Low quality ball bearings
3. Metal bushings
4. Plastic bushings

Kits usually come with metal or plastic bushings. I
would immediately replace these with ball bearing during
the assembly process.


New Stuff on the Web Site

I uploaded a couple of rc car reviews such as the
Tamiya Honda CRV, and OFNA Mercedes Benz Nitro Touring

I have also added links to online magazine shops that
sell discounted subscriptions to Radio Control Car
Action and R/C Car Magazine.

Check them all out at www.rccartips.com


Personal Notes

On Feb 10 and 11 I will be at the PICC giving my talk
about technopreneurship to STI students. Then on Feb 12
I am off for a 6 week IT training in Japan.

During this time I might be late in answering emails.
Thank you and God bless.
