ASK Cubby, Your Week In Questions, My Week In Daydreaming

“Associated and TLR Hey Cubby, Whats up? So earlier this week, the TLR 22 3.0 was “leaked” with an expected official release today 11-5. And so it was. Then, out of nowhere, Associated releases a B5M CE. Pricing is within $5, from what I can find online, so basically it comes down to if you like Losi or AE. Did [...]

“Going large Hi, I’ve got a Halix and my son’s got a Yeti. Now we want to go large. I know you’ll review the X-Maxx soon but the question is are you going to compare it to the Yeti XL and maybe a few others? We’d love to see that shoot-out. Cheers, Gary” Cubby- Ya know what Gary, I think a whole [...]

“Trophy Truck Discussion You have a News/Blog entry online about the new bomb Axial has planted (the SCORE Trophy Truck).

Thanks for supporting the scene! Dennis R. (Germany) WAKE [...]

“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. I would like to pick your brain for suggestions on a second RC purchase (sort of). Brief backstory: I purchased matching 1/16 E-Revo’s for my sons [...]

“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. Short course trucks are fun and can be made to look pretty realistic but lack a solid rear axle. I think the new thunder tiger jackel you just [...]

“Duratrax and Ofna Hello Sir, I was curious if you knew why Duratrax stopped making cars? I see that they make a 1/8 buggy but that is all. Also I saved up for an Ofna 1/8 Ultra LX2e and parts have been discontinued. I used to buy Associated and Losi but I think their prices have sky rocketed. That’s my opinion. Is [...]

“Crystal ball Cubby, I see that your crystal ball doesn’t work so good. You mention a lot of stuff that never happens and I think you are straight up full of it. You can’t get away with saying a truck is going to come out when it never does, maybe you need to get your facts straight before you post. Stanley R.” Cubby- [...]

“Outdated Chassis Does this annoy you too?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. Every company does it (including my beloved axial) and it just irritates the hell outta me. To point a finger, the almighty Tamiya CC01; I think they could [...]

“The Internet For years I have been watching traffic on rc forums go down. I don’t think it is the fault of the websites themselves, I think it shows a lack of interest in the hobby as a whole.
