Cubby Calls it Quits, Heads to ROAR

I was hoping he would give some sort of final ‘Goodbye from The Cub Report’ but apparently that’s not how he rolls. We are sad to see him go, and believe me, the counter offers were BIG. We wanted to do something special, but he really wanted to just fade away. Cubby’s last day was this morning at Big Squid. [...]

THE Cub Report- 08.15.2011- Sand Baggers Delight

Welcome to yet another exciting week in our wonderful hobby of rc. What was the big rc news last week you might ask? HPI announcing a new gas (not nitro) powered monster truck coming in 2012, that’s what. I guess the obtuse might have just blown right by that PR, but I saw it as the first sign [...]

Hola rc fans, welcome to yet another scrumptious edition of rc’s most satirical column, THE Cub Report. So… where did “Cubby’s Wheel Of Doom” land on this week?

THE Cub Report, 06.07.2011- Do You Remember?

Everyone is OCD in some way, shape or form, I’m OCD about market trends. As much as I’d like to think the same as an “average consumer” does, I know because of my involvement in the industry that I don’t, my views/thoughts etc are epically skewed. Unfortunately for me, my job requires that I am spot-on with market trends. With [...]

THE Cub Report, Version 11.07.2010- Red Bull Constructo…

Most Amercians could car less about Formula One racing, but being the most elite motorsport on the planet I can’t resist watching it. Todays F1 race was in held in Brazil at Interlagos. If you are an rc road course designer, your dreams should be filled with thoughts of emulating that track. The elevation changes, the multiple apex corners, [...]

Hello good people of the rc world, and welcome to yet another vitriolic edition of your favorite weekly rc column…. So, one of the guys in the ROAR camp sent me another scathing email, which I thought was quite odd as Cubby’s Wheel Of Doom hasn’t landed on ROAR for weeks (a wheel I spin to determine who I’m flip’n out [...]

How are tracks keeping their doors open now days? Have you looked at weekly attendance at your local tracks? More likely than not, your local track is getting 15-40 entries on a weekly basis, hardly enough to keep the lights on and rent paid. Well, I’ll tell ya how many tracks are keeping their doors open, big “trophy” races. Many [...]

THE Cub Report, Version 07.26.2010- Sucks Massa Pulled …

Have I mentioned how much I love Formula 1 racing? Have you heard every race is a giant soap opera? Well today at Hockenheim my favorite F1 team, Ferrari, had a one/two finish all locked up. Massa got a great start off the grid then pulled away with the lead. Later in the race his Ferrari teammate Alonzo started [...]

Editor’s Note — Here are the facts: Adam Drake was top qualifier in the buggy class. Jared Tebo TQ’d the truggy class. Tebo then went on to win both the buggy and truggy classes. Jeff was sent there to take pictures and provide coverage of the event. What we got back from him was this “story.” [...]
