ASK Cubby- You Pile On The Questions, I Skimp On The Answers

“fuel mix Dear Cubby, I recently stepped up to a 1/5 scale. Really enjoying it. My question is about fuel ratio. Every manual I’ve read says 25:1, and that’s what I’ve been running. But I’ve seen on forums that a lot of people are running 32:1 or even 40:1. I even read in a mag that they ran the new losi dbxl [...]

ASK Cubby – More Of Your Letters, More Of My Mumbo Jumbo

“HPI/Traxxas Merger Hey Cubby, Just saw the article about the possible HPI/Traxxas merger. If it’s true, what do you think that would mean not only for Traxxas, but for the industry as a whole? I hope that the HPI bodies would still be available and that maybe Traxxas would change some of their platforms. I know you’re position on racing, but HPI [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Lessons I Have Learned…

At a bash over the weekend, I witnessed something peculiar. I’ve been in the hobby since the Earth cooled, but I had never seen this before. A youngster drove his Vaterra Ascender over to my pit area, sat his transmitter down, then walked away to meet up with his Dad. 45 minutes later, he came back over, picked up his [...]
