THE Cub Report, 01.19.2015, Version- Legacy

After completing a long, somber, mentally exhausting weekend at a relative’s funeral, it got me to thinking a whole lot about legacy. Certainly nobody lives forever, once we are gone what really matters? How many people that attended the funeral? When the last time someone speaks our name? What our kids accomplish? Or simply our legacy? Ya I know, a pretty [...]

“Newbie Who Is An Oldie Hi Guys, I just wanted to drop you guys a line to thank you for your website. I am a 65 year old senior who got into r/c back in the days of the original RC10 when my now 30 year old son wanted to go racing, which we did. We bought a kit and I put [...]

THE Cub Report- Headlines You Won’t Be Seein…

When you visit BSRC you see lots of headlines, some about new cars, some about reviews, even some about changes within our industry. After some bench racing with the Bash Crew I now present to you some headlines you won’t be seeing in rc this year… “Traxxas Wins IFMAR World Championship!” – No, you’ll never be seeing this headline, Traxxas knows [...]

One of our friends, Tim Gluth over at RCNewb.com, posted up a question last week that got my mind to thinking. His question was quite simple, “What is the best rc story from 2014?”, but I had a hard time actually coming up with an answer. However, after some more thinking (and a few Swarovski crystal flutes filled with Dom [...]

Hello cruel rc world, welcome to yet another Cub Report, a satirical column intended to raise eyebrows (and tempers). Hey, I actually have a few topics this week, so lets get this party started… 1. Did ya see IFMAR is allowing AstroTurf as a racing surface for the 2015 10th scale off-road worlds? Of course you didn’t, you are a basher and [...]

No, it isn’t December 31st quite yet, but I decided to bust out my annual year end summary a couple of weeks early. Overall, 2014 will not go down as a banner year for rc sales, but it certainly saw a bunch of innovative products released. The whole 8th scale gasoline powered monster truck thing sounded great on paper but [...]

Years ago, and I don’t remember how many it has been (and I’m far too lazy to look it up), I wrote a Cub Report featuring what our BigSquidRC Bash Crew wanted for Christmas. I wrote it to give you guys a little more insight to what our Bash Crew was thinking, and to what they really truly wanted under [...]

As the years have passed I’ve become a grumpy old man (Yes, even grumpier than before). Every day it seems more and more things trip my trigger. It might be something small like how a woman takes 4000% longer to use an ATM than a man does, or something that really truly torques me off, like fake Facebook likes. Why would [...]
