rc bashing with Cubby

THE Cub Report, 07.28.2014, Version- Endo nesia

And this week the wheel of death lands on… you guessed it, one of my favorites, ROAR! Actually this week I’m not flipping out on them at all, but I do want to talk about their press release from last week. ROAR put out a statement in regards to the high-zoot 2.4″ wheels that are all the rage 10th scale [...]

THE Cub Report, 06.23.2014, Version- Tractiongate ’14

Last week our wonderful sanctioning body put out a press release (of sorts) concerning traction control at their races. Here is their PR where they state anyone caught using it gets a 5 year insta-ban… “The ROAR Executive Committee has decided on a 5 year Suspension from ROAR events for any infractions of rule 5.2.3 The use of traction control sensing [...]

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. [...]

It is time for rc racing to get some freshening up, I mean, it is basically the same as it was the 80’s, THE 80’S! Nobody else rests on their laurels that long and for good reason, when you do, things get static and boring. And while turnouts at “big” races are doing well, local racing in many areas has [...]

The lawsuit has now been settled and here is a press release from Fantom Racing (who get motors from Trinity) stating some of the details. “Trincorp Reaches Settlement Agreement with Remotely Operated Auto Racers.

THE Cub Report, 06.17.2013, Version- Bring the Noise

Hello readers, industry types, and people who just happened along via some random Google search, this is THE Cub Report, a weekly rant-n-rave session about the rc world. Rc racing is so freak’n screwed up, yet the vast majority of racers have no problem just “going with the flow’. Thankfully I’m not wired that way… For example, over the weekend ROAR [...]

Happy Monday morning everyone, and welcome to another week in rc. Thankfully the F1 season kicked off last weekend. After qualifying it looked like yet another run-away year for the Red Bull team, but when it was all said and done my favorite robot Kimi Raikkonen was standing on top of the podium. The Ferrari team also gave me some [...]

Hey guys, welcome to THE Cub Report, your weekly dose of rc bench racing and shoot’n the rc bull. 25 days, 1 hour and 42 minutes until the cars roll off in Melbourne, “sigh”. It seems like it takes forever for the F1 season to get started. The “big” story from Dallas last night (Saturday) was why rookie Honda/Geico rider Zach Bell [...]
