THE Cub Report, Version- Enema of the State

I certainly hope you’ve been having a bash-tastic Memorial Day weekend thus far. In case you’ve been living under a rock (and some people actually get it wrong), Memorial Day is a day for remembering all those that died while serving in our armed forces. If it wasn’t for them, you and I wouldn’t be sitting here enjoying all the [...]

ASK Cubby, Version- More Dodging The Truth

“Vaterra Cubby, I’m a daily passenger on the Big Squid Express. Great job. I’ve been a big fan of Vaterra since they came on the RC scene, but have been a little dissappointed lately with their off road selection. I know it’s hard to come up with the more innovative products like Axial’s Yeti every year, but I’d really like to see [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Didn’t See That One Coming…

We really messed up this time, and by “we” I mean a whole lot of people in the traditional rc industry. We totally underestimated the entire quadcopter/drone phenomenon. What could have been a cash cow, a savior to our industry, many of us basically looked at as yet another small fad. Instead it has turned into a behemoth. In case you [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Why I Stopped Racing

If you’ve been reading THE Cub Report for any period of time, then you know back in the early days about all I ever talked about was racing. Yes, I drank the Kool Aid, for most of my life rc was solely about racing. It was what the magazines had preached, it was what the manufacturers preached, and it was [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Driving A Piece of Garbage

So… over the weekend I loaded up all my gear and met up with the BSRC Bash Crew. They are truly a bunch of mis-fits, but they all are extremely hardcore about their bashing. Their cars/trucks are fully prepped for a beating, they love driving all day long, and they are all about going bigger and harder than the next [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- I Hate Nitro, But…

If you’ve read the CR for any period of time, you clearly know I have a passionate hatred of nitro. It stems from years of watching T-Maxx drivers grind away on “easy starts” with no success, or even when they could get the engine to pop to life, actually sitting the truck on the ground was the kiss of death, [...]

Just in case you haven’t gotten the memo, On-Road racing here in America is F#&$%@!. Why do I say that? Turn outs at local races are abysmal, and even their national events have turned into a joke. And yes of course I am going to give you examples. In my local area, one of the biggest metros in the USA [...]
