ASK Cub Reporter- 09.07.2011- My Email Explodes All Over You…

Hello Brian, First, I have a suggestion: I just read the 4WD Short Course Shootout and 3 trucks is not so much for a shootout. You already mentioned the Losi SCTE and Associated SC10 4×4 are not in stores now. Maybe you could get all trucks out again when they are in stores and do a 4WD Short Course Shootout Reloaded or [...]

Funny how the meltdown emails come in every week when I dare mention anything about motocross. Yup, I spam motocross pretty hard in every Cub Report, and I do it not only because I can, but because there are many direct ties between that sport and ours. With that said… Something huge is going on this coming weekend. Traxxas, [...]
