THE Cub Report – Reminiscing The T-Maxx Era

Ya know, there was a time not all that long ago when our industry was growing. Growing like crazy in fact! The time period goes from right around 1999 when the original T-Maxx was released, to around 2007 where a general economic downswing in America put a big damper on the runaway growth of our hobby. The other day the [...]

I had a big “What to expect in 2019” Cub Report planned for this week as I traditionally do on the first week of a new year, but it will have to wait another 7 days. You see, I lost a reader last week. Actually, you know me, I probably lost us hundreds of readers last week alone, but, I [...]

THE Cub Report – Well Hello There 2019!

WOW, 2018 will go down as arguably the craziest year ever for the rc industry! From start to finish, 2018 was filled with awesome highs, and absolutely terrible lows. I won’t beat around the bush here, 2018 will mostly be known as the year that industry leader Hobbico was snatched up by long time rival Horizon Hobby, but there were [...]
