“Help picking next RC Cubby — First let me say, I enjoy your Q&A articles and your website all together – It’s helped me dramatically as I step back into this hobby after a decade+ away.

“Trophy trucks Hey Cubby, Just wondering if you had any insight as to why nobody sells a 1/10 trophy truck? I enjoy scale looking models but crawlers are just too slow for my taste.

“Outdated Chassis Does this annoy you too? Is it really just me that minds when a big rc company (no fingers pointed) constantly releases the same product that just looks a little different.
