For Bashers, By Bashers!

THE Cub Report, Version 05.03.2010

Geezuss I’m getting tired of lame “teaser” press releases. A fine example of this was the tease put out by our broken English speaking friends at Kyosho America a couple weeks ago. The promise was “Something BIG” was coming from them. What did it turn out to be? Well the “BIG” news was that Kyosho America was opening up a Mini-Z track inside their facility. Arrgghhhh….. To me “BIG” news from Kyosho is a totally revamped 8th scale buggy featuring liquid cooling and EFI for the engine, and some way super dope laid down shocks that use a linkage for rising rate, remote reservoirs and eternal damping clickers. Just say’n…

The official BigSquid bashing squad hit an event hosted by Slot and Wing Hobbies in Champaign Illinois this weekend (look for event coverage in the next couple days). I was unable to attend, but the BigSquid crew came back ranting and raving just how much fun they had long jumping and mud slinging. I think a lot of people forget just how much fun bashing is. Anyways, we got to talking about why there aren’t more bashing events put on and why there aren’t any dedicated bash only tracks. Perhaps hobby shops think there is no money to be made by putting on bashing events? The Slot and Wing event had good attendance, as has BigSquids own Bash-A-Paloozas, and the No Limit RC events are always huge. Maybe if you are a shop owner you could (and should) consider catering more to the bashing crowd instead of the hardcore (and very vocal) racing guys? There are way more bashers than racers floating around out there. Hint hint…

That’s it for this week, as always support your local hobby shops, tracks and bash spots!
