THE Cub Report, Version- Watch Us Build A Friend Just Like You
Well hello there friend, welcome to a bright new week in rc and yet another Cub Report. Hopefully you had a good weekend filled with rc, Supercross from Texas, and some good (UFC) and not so good (Bellator) MMA action.
You probably saw Brian throw up a big “Welcome Aboard” post about RC4WD last week. Yes, we are pretty stoked to have RC4WD join the BigSquidRC family of supporters, and I truly mean family. We go through the good times and the bad times in the hobby with our sponsors, working with them to help the hobby grow. They are also the people that are most after the business of our readers, they know you like to bash, they know you like to read BSRC, and they actively want to help make your experience in the hobby the best it can be.
With RC4WD, they are at the very top end of the scale game, offering products nobody else can touch, and would really like for you all to support their trucks, wheels, tires, and other accessories. Pretty much every week when I read about the latest releases from RC4WD I am amazed by their incredible attention to detail. They have done what it takes to secure all those official licenses and to make sure the rc version comes out looking as close to the original product as possible. Also, instead of making everything out of plastic, most of their gear is made from real metal. As Americans, we have seen everything gone to being made out of plastic, done mainly to save the manufacturer a few bucks here or there. It is refreshing to see a company go ahead and make product out of more expensive materials like steel and aluminum. Yes, it costs a few more bucks, but can easily be worth every penny for the added durability and scale authentic look (and feel).
So yes indeed, I also want to welcome the RC4WD crew on board to BigSquidRC. I have only met with them once (at a HobbyTown USA show a couple of years ago) but they are good old fashioned rc heads like you and me. They dig putting in long hours to create products that will blow away everything else on the market, then taking those products out and getting them dirty, just like all bashers do. If you get a chance, take a look at the RC4WD Website and see if there is anything that strikes your fancy. If you see something you like, RC4WD products are easily available at most local hobby shops, but if you don’t have one, you can also get them on-line at huge retailers like Tower Hobbies and Horizon Hobby.
That’s all for this week, have a Fantastic Week in the hobby and get out and support your local bash spots and hobby shops when ya can.
