Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Traxxas Scaler

You guys knew I’d be talking about the Traxxas truck this week, right? When I first saw the photos making their rounds last weekend, I actually thought it was a hoax at first. People have done this several times in regards to Traxxas releasing a scaler. It took awhile before I could confirm it was real, but yes, it was indeed. I [...]

ASK Cubby- More Of Your Questions, Less Of My Answers

“Traxxas still king, can they save on road? LHS issue Hey Cubby, It’s been a while since a wrote in, but I wanted to share some thoughts. First, the quote “support your LHS (local hobby shop)”. Well, I am not into this hobby to support my local hobby shop. In fact, if it wasn’t for the Internet, I would [...]

Monster Truck Madness #5 – 4x4x4

Back in my Bigfoot days, a commonly asked question from many a casual fan was “What does 4x4x4 mean?” For those that don’t know, that slogan used to be painted on many of the trucks. 4x4x4 means four wheel drive with four wheel steering. When people think of monster trucks, four wheel steering (from here on out 4WS) is probably one [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – What got you into scaling?

Last week there was a chain message going around Facebook where if you got tagged, you had to post a picture of your first r/c crawler and describe how you got into it. I got tagged by a few friends…but I abhor those things so I never did my part. I figured it would be better to just share it [...]

Ask Cubby – Reasonable Questions, Ridiculous Answers

“Suggestion/ Thanks First off, awesome website with a ton of usefull info. I recently got back into the rc hobby after about decade. Boy was I surprised when I ripped down the block with brushless for the first time and then promptly “needed” to jump my real car and have my neighbors questioning my sanity as they stood around waiting for [...]

Bashers Basics – Soldering

The world of RC is a great and vast hobby, but no matter where you travel throughout the hobby, at one point or another, you will come across something that requires you to solder. For someone that doesn’t have previous experience with industrial equipment, it may seem extremely daunting, from the specialized tools needed, to the safety risks. But never [...]

THE Cub Report – I HATE Cheaters

Ya know what? Everybody hates cheaters, but me in particular, I absolutely loathe them. They are lower than a quadcopter’s price at a gas station and deserve every bad thing that happens to them. For example… a bunch of years back I was racing at an indoor track in Albion Illinois (the name was Rectors I think?). This was in Southern [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Tire Wishlist

Last week Pro-Line made some headlines in announcing their boss looking 1.9″ Interco Bogger tire. The gigantic mud tires got me thinking about what tires I’d like to see done in the future. Many popular off-road tires have already been replicated in r/c size; some, like by several companies even, like the aforementioned Boggers. Still, there are pieces of rubber out [...]

Monster Truck Madness #4: The T-Maxx Conquers the World

It’s hard to believe that the launch of the Traxxas T-Maxx was 18 years ago. There have been a lot of releases before and since, but nothing compares to the seismic shift that occured in this industry back in 1999. Given how much time has passed (I was a sophomore in high school!), I’m sure there are many of you that [...]
