THE Cub Report, Version- What Is a Bash Like?

While some of you have been to an organized bash, my guess would be that the vast majority of you have not. You might be stuck in an office working the rc biz and too busy to make it to a local event, or you might live in a part of the country where there simply are no bashes (which [...]

“The Internet For years I have been watching traffic on rc forums go down. I don’t think it is the fault of the websites themselves, I think it shows a lack of interest in the hobby as a whole. I have seen many people leave the hobby while very few have entered. People have left the hobby to pursue other things, [...]

You know, I’ve used the title “Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned” (the title of a Prodigy album) once before, wayyyyyyy back in 2009. So this week I thought I would hop in the time machine and go back to what I wrote back in ’09 and see how it stands up today. So what was in my ’09 Cub Report? * I [...]

THE Cub Report, Version- Crazy As Len Koenecke

Ever see an empty flying field? How about a nearly empty track with 10 people, each running 4 classes for “40 entries”? How about that rocky area of your local park that used to have 10 guys crawling on the weekend, now it is lucky if 1 or 2 shows up? Seriously folks, we gotta stop running people off. Why [...]

“Is this a no-brain’r or ? Sir Cubby, Mr. Cubby I’d like to know your take on choice of 1/8 Truggy Tires for straight Hard-Core bashing.

In N Out Cubby

THE Cub Report, Version – From Atop Mount Olympus

Bigger, faster, gnarlier, that is exactly what bashing is about. Get at least two guys together in a cul-de-sac or at a local park, and it always turns into a “who is the faster” or “who can jump farthest” contest. So the “big” news from last week was of course the announcement of the 6th scale Losi Audi R8 Supercar. Being [...]
