“Traxxas Rustler Cubby, I am just getting back into rc cars, could you please recommend some basic upgrades for my Traxxas Rustler? I basically drive around my yard and local parking lot and don’t want to spend a lot of cash. Ronnie F.” Cubby- Yo hey Ronnie, thanks for taking the time out of your day to write in. Oh ya, don’t forget, a [...]
After reviewing a couple of other trucks from DHK, we finally got a shot at one of their 8th scalers. A few weeks ago we started testing the 1/8th RTR DHK Hobby Maximus Monster Truck to see how it stacks up to its competition. The Maximus sports quite the affordable price point, we wanted to see if the truck was [...]
So here we are folks, another week in rc. Hummmm, let me think. Naw, I can’t really think of anything exciting that went down at all last week.

“apply Hello, If it is possible please send me manuals of 2016 Tamiya Blackfoot Re-Release. Thank you very much Best regards, Roo” Cubby- Ya know, I dig letters like these, Roo, if you are seeing this, shoot me a snail mail for a sticker pack. Why do I like letters like this? Because they are so easy to answer. OK Roo, YES, is it “possible” that I could [...]
Hello there rc people, thanks for clicking over to BigSquidRC. No matter if you are a first day noobie, or have been pulling trigger since the 1970s, THE Cub Report is here to ramble on and on about our beloved hobby of rc. First up, how about That Podcast Of Ours? Ya, it took a while to get all of our [...]
After reviewing a couple of higher-end Team Redcat trucks, we discovered that Recat isn’t messing around. Their 1/8 monster truck and 1/10 Team Redcat SCT were both solid trucks, clearly capable of running with the best in their classes. Recently, we started driving the Redcat Landslide XTE monster truck. The Landslide is part of Redcat’s normal line-up of bash vehicles, [...]
“Backyard bashing Hey Cubby, I’m relatively new to the rc hobby, only a couple years now, but I’ve been working up the gumption to write in as my son and I have been enjoying your work for a long time now, heck even back before we took the plunge in to this addiction, er hobby. Love your industry updates, product reviews [...]
Well hello there rc people, happy Monday and welcome to THE Cub Report. I don’t have a lot running around in my mind today. We are super slammed working on reviews, as well as a million other things. Our March Bash-ness contest is just around the corner, which we have been prepping for since the middle of last month. For you [...]
“Has BigSquid gone soft? Just read the review of the E-Revo 2.0 and am disappointed in the Broken Parts section. I didn’t see any detail about the durability testing you did, in fact, only saw it about what you didn’t do (“No, we did not drive it WFO into a brick wall” and “we don’t have a lot of time [...]
While DHK Hobby is well known overseas, here in America they are just starting to take off. DHK is now carried by HRP Distribution here in the states, thus making it much easier for local hobby shops to stock them. Over the last few weeks we’ve been able to bash and thrash the DHK Crosse BL 4wd monster truck. The [...]
Yup, here we are folks, yet another incredibly busy week in the hobby. Thanks for joining us here at BigSquidRC. Here we go… First up, how about that Revo 2? Ya, since our review we’ve been getting a lot of email about it, but ya, it is legit. Seriously, I hate to say it is the toughest truck we’ve ever reviewed, [...]
“Help CEN CTR 5.0 To Off Road Hi, I hope you can help me with my CENB CT5. What I’m trying to do is convert my ct5 in a semi off road or in some way protect de internals pieces (spurs, belts, and other parts). The chassis has too many open spaces and rocks and dusts come in very easily i [...]
In the beginning, the Traxxas Revo was a nitro powered monster truck that set new standards for performance. Soon, brushless was taking over everything and the E-Revo was released. The electric form of the Revo was even more extreme, going even faster, and jumping even higher. It has just been a few weeks since the Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 was announced, [...]
