Fast Fours (and rotaries) Magazine.

Notice how it's no longer "Fast Fours & Rotaries"? It's now "FAST FOURS four, rotary & high-tech performance (in tiny writing)"

Fast Fours & Rotaries magazine used to be greatest magazine on the shelf for true car enthusiasts. It's the only magazine that catered for the Rotary enthusiasts as well. Now it's a great magazine for advertisment browsing and checking out what the latest 'Droid' kit on a Honda Civic looks like.

To be quite brutally honest, the magazine has gone to shit. And this petition is going to prove i'm not the only one who thinks so.

Take the last issue i purchased for example. May 2006 - 69 out of 179 pages are company advertisments. Featuring cars such as: Series 3 RX7 (great!), starion, lexus, integra, skyline, datto ute, drift meet, lancer, datto article, proton. Next is the Feb 2006 issue: Datto, skyline, Supra, Forester, BMW, Focus, WRX, Drift meet and of course, 71 pages of advertising.

While the variety of cars in an issue isn't bad, the variety of cars PER issue is terrible. We don't wanna see the same shit every month! How many articles on FC RX7's has there been in the last 5 years? Compared to how many articles on Lancers... How many articles on old school rotors such as R100, RX2, RX3, RX4, 1300, 323's etc have there been compared to Skylines, Civics, Lancers etc?

Stop putting so many rice box workshop pony's, owned by 17 year old kids and funded by their parents and start putting in more cars like Aaron Fitzpatrick's Datto 1600 and Drew McConville's S3 RX7. The only decent cars in the magazine are usually the cover cars, and to get a decent cover car month after month is pretty lucky! The rest of the cars in the magazine are usually there to fill the pages that you couldn't get advertisments for!

Next thing: What is with the new car reviews?! Does anyone really give two shits about what thew new Mitsubishi Lancer LS sedan is like?! If you want to review a new car, go review something that is half respectable. Like an RX8, a GTP Falcon, a Clubsport, 350z, MX5, Corolla Sportivo, Ford Territory Turbo, BMW M6... anything other then a mass produced nugget that weighs almost 1300kg and boasts a huge 115kw...

Articles such as "Benji's Toy" a Proton Gen2. Complete waste of space. Instead of grabbing the latest Korean built shitter, bolting a turbo on it, putting some sports springs in it and calling it a race car, why don't you guys put a little more effort in and follow a REAL build up. There are thousands of projects in the works that people have been spending anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 years doing. Real back yard, in the shed at 2am with the fluro over the engine bay, blood sweat and tears type build-ups and Fast Fours have the audacity to soil our eyes with this kinda crap and call it a build up!?

It's time Fast Fours AND ROTARIES, stepped up to the plate. Stop putting so much advertising in the magazine (it never used to be there, so why do you need it to be there now?), stop putting so many Auto Salon trailer queens in the mag and basically stop catering for 14 year old kids who wouldn't even know the difference between a starter motor and a fuel pump and start catering for the more matured generation. The ones who used to buy your magazine religiously, when it was good.
