ASK Cubby – Your Intimate Questions, My Satirical Replies

“Traxxas TRX-4 What’s up, Jimmy D here again! So I went my local LHS this weekend and spent 30 minutes pouring over the Traxxas TRX-4. Display model only, as the big green sticker on the box says.

ASK Cubby – You Write In, I Duck Out

“Pro-Line PRO-2? Hey Cubby, I was wondering if you had any insight or insider information as to what’s going on with Pro-Line? Their website lists the PRO-2 and PRO-2 Buggy as out of stock, most online retailers list those two as “discontinued”. Where can somebody find a quality non-RTR basher? I like building kits, but I don’t race, and the Tamiya kits [...]

THE Traxxas Ford GT Review

Traxxas made huge news in early February when they announced the Ford GT. At a time when on-road had been in decline for years, Traxxas rolled the dice with a hot looking Ford GT body and an all new 4-Tec 2.0 chassis underneath. Can the Ford GT breathe some much needed life back into the on-road scene? How well does [...]

Ya know, life isn’t all about rc. Well, it mostly is, but if you go 100% at rc all the time, you will get burnt out. That’s why it is prudent to enjoy other sports, hobbies, and racing. Especially right now. I say that because both F1 and the Feld Supercross Series are having freak’n incredible seasons. With just 3 [...]
