Really? I hate it. Well, those are harsh words. I just think that Superstreet is a ricey version of SCC. SCC seems to have (although more apparant in years past) that performance comes first. You can see it in their project cars...no body kits, seldom any decals, and very close attention to detail. However, Superstreet is more designed for the less-performance oriented owner. Someone whose not interested in a complete engine overhaul, but would rather do some mild/medium level bolt-ons and also give their car some "pazazz"....just not what I like.

I guess calling it ricey is a bad way to look at it...I just think SCC's performance-focus is more intriguing.

Good call. However, if you want to get technical, Import Tuner would be the 'riced-up' version of SCC & Turbo. They just happen to all be from the same publisher. But even Import Tuner is more serious than Super Street. Perhaps not for racing, but 2NR is very serious about the show scene. SS just feels like its catering to the masses, rather than leading them.

Yeah you're right about that. The best thing to do is to subscribe to everything. That way you'll never miss out on any detail. Super Street provides some eye candy, but the articles are trash.

missing out?

I have a short term solution to magazines and not missing out on everything, cause if you haven't test driven the Lexus IS sport design, you've been missing out, I found an offer online that said I could get a free magazine subscription to media week if I test drove it, I tried it and, yeah it worked, I mean the free offer. well here are the links, tell me what you think
