tornado rally cross body

PROTOform Tornado RallyCross Body

New from PROTOform, the Tornado RallyCross body. This body is for the 1/16th scale Traxxas RallyCross vehicles. It’s made to be used with the Traxxas Black Wing (#7317) to finish off the awesome racer look. If you have a 1/16th scale RallyCross, and you bash it like it’s meant to be bashed, your probably due for a new body. #gallery-1 [...]

Redcat Shredder SC 1:6 Scale Short Course Review

Redcat Shredder SC 1:6 Scale Short Course ReviewUsually when you hear the words Redcat and RC in the same sentence your initial reaction is to cringe. They just don’t have the best reputation out there right now. The products are usually pretty low priced, and the scales are always non-standard. Hobby shops rarely carry their products or parts, and [...]


THE Cub Report- 09.12.2011- If Ya Can’t Beat’em, Join’em

Has it already been another week? Omg does time fly in the wonderful world of rc. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right?

And yes of course, Jeff’s version is vastly [...]

traxxas f150 raptor svt

Traxxas F150 Raptor SVT

New from Traxxas is the Ford F150 Raptor SVT. According to the description, it’s based on the Traxxas Slash platform. We are pretty sure it’s a slash with a F150 body on it, but way it’s worded, it’s as if it’s a whole new vehicle. It comes with the Titan 12T Brushed motor, 2.4Ghz radio system, and BFGoodrich replica tires. [...]


mini recon

HPI Racing Mini Recon

Looks like HPI Racing is going to try and get into that ‘first rc vehicle’ category. The one where parents and a kid walk into a hobby shop and say, ‘What should we get our kid for his first RC?’ The HPI Mini Recon is going to have a price point of $99!! So it’s easy on the wallet. [...]


HPI Savage Flux XS 01

HPI Savage XS Flux Unboxing!

It’s here! It’s here it’s here it’s here! The HPI Savage XS Flux is here! Here are the unboxing pictures, including a pic of the XS Flux next to the Traxxas Stampede 4×4. Keep in mind that my ‘Pede 4×4 has the JConcepts body lowering kit with Pro-Line wheels and tires, so it is not quite [...]

RPM promised us some new rear a-arms for the SC10 4×4 last week, and they have indeed delivered. Available in black, the a-arms have been beefed up in all the right areas, yet will cut 5 grams of weight from your vehicle. Of course, they are also backed by RPM’s lifetime warranty! They should be available at [...]



Evan’s 5 Minutes…on HPI Savage XS Flux Day!

“On vehicle for delivery.” The most beautiful words anyone can see on a UPS tracking status screen, especially when on that truck is my HPI Savage Flux XS!!! Sure, I was hoping to get it a little sooner than some of the other guys out there, but the universe often works against us here at Big Squid. [...]


hpi trophy flux truggy

HPI Racing Trophy Flux Truggy

Talk about a bashing vehicle! Just saw some info on the HPI Racing 1/8th scale brushless Trophy Flux Truggy! Comes RTR, with a 2.4, and sounds like it’s basically built for jumping on 4S Lipo! That we like! Also looks like a good amount of bling. This might be a Europe only vehcile, we’ll have to see if it makes [...]
