THE Cub Report, Version- First Time At The Track

I could see it coming a mile away. I have been down that road million times. What am I talking about? I was at the track last week working on a review and a basher showed up who had never driven on a track before. Oh my, it used to be funny to watch a first time track guy blow [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Just Don’t Do It

No matter if you are at a local bash spot, trail, track, or rock pile, there are just some things you shouldn’t do. Here is a list I have compiled of things that I have seen Joe Blow bashers (and even guys on our Bash Crew) actually do, that probably aren’t a good idea… While at the local track testing… just [...]

Hello and happy Labor Day to everyone out in rc land. Ok, if you are an American you are stoked, Labor Day means a three day weekend. If you live outside the states, Labor Day is a day that American’s use to eat loads of BBQ, drink a lot of rot-gut beer, and get one last swim in the pool [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Steppin’ To The A.M.

Hello all and welcome to this week’s Cub Report. I personally had a weekend that pretty much could not be beaten. I got to watch some of the uber pros at the Futaba Nitro Challenge, watched a ton of F1/AMA MX/FIM MXGP/UFC, and got in some much needed trigger time with the new Pro-Line Ambush Scale Crawler. Yes indeed, life [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- In Kinwald We Trust

Ya know, racing is a significant part of our hobby. In fact, it used to be uber important. Now days, or at least since most people started using the internet, that has changed a bit. In the old days dinosaur media made it seem like everyone raced, or at the very least everyone should be racing. Thankfully, thanks to the [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- When Hell Freezes Over

No doubt, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve got a new advertiser here on Big Squid, a little company from Texas known as Traxxas. “Some people” have said that Hell would freeze over before they would advertise with us, in that case, Hades must be looking for his Isthmus Parka about now. Needless to say, it was about time that the [...]

THE Cub Report, Version – If I Had The Money…

Hello to one and all, it is yet again another wonderful day in the rc neighborhood. Last weekend I did something I rarely do, which was not get in one minute of trigger time. I was away on family business (read- a funeral), so I did not drive one rc car all weekend. However, all the fun family festivities (read- [...]

THE Cub Report – Pokemon GO Edition!

Ok, so I hate Pokemon passionately, but my son is all about them. He has seen every movie, watched every tv episode, and of course, goes to school daily with a couple dozen Pokemon cards in his backpack. Naturally, the minute Pokemon GO was unleashed on the world he asked (read- forced) a parental figure (read- me) to put it [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Happy Birthday America

Well hello there ‘Merica, happy birthday to you. If you are an American, you’ll enjoy a day of drinking, shooting off fireworks, grilling outside, and if you get lucky enough, even some trigger time (either gun or rc). If you are outside the states, yes, us wacky Americans really kick the party up a notch on Independence Day, celebrating the [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Abacab

Ya know, just minutes after I wrapped up writing THE Cub Report last week, the official PR came across the wire that Novak had decided to pull the plug. Much has already been written across the net about our hobby losing such an iconic name. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry has a long boring story about how their Cyclone, Super [...]
