THE Cub Report, 06.25.2012, Version- The Bells Onc…

Days like today are why I believe in miracles. You see Spanish driver Fernando Alonso didn’t have a shot at winning the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Valencia Spain today. Alonso and his Ferrari had a lackluster performance in qualifying on Saturday, putting them 11th place on the starting grid. Certainly Alonso and his Ferrari would work their way into [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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.
