THE Cub Report – Backwards Is The New Forward

Hola folks, and welcome to BigSquidRC version 2018. Holy cow did 2017 fly right on by, hopefully 2018 decides to stick around a little longer. While 2017 could be considered an “ugly” year for rc, there is a whole lot of hope out there for ’18. Sales seem to be coming up, that and companies are really changing their business models [...]

THE Cub Report – Rewriting The Rulebook

Happy December to you, with holiday season in full swing, so is indoor racing season. If you are a noob to rc, let me explain. During the summer months most people in our hobby like to race outside. During the winter months, things typically move indoors. I don’t race either, because racing sucks. Right now everyone likes to focus on trophy [...]

Yo, how ya been? Thanks for joining us on BigSquidRC for another Cub Report. Word from the trenches is that the holiday season is off to a good start.

Whoa, what a crazy time it was last week in the rc biz. There was some epic announcements no doubt, shall we dig right in? Yup, the Pro-Line PRO-MT 4×4 has gotta go at the top of the list for last week. If there ever was a truck solely designed for bashing, I think it has to be the PRO-MT 4×4. [...]
