Just a quick heads up, Pro-Line Racing has re-designed their website. It’s got a good look, and things are a little easier to find over there. If you haven’t checked it out lately, maybe now is a good time to go tire/wheel shopping for the summer bashing!
Hey All, in case you were flipping out last night hitting your reload button trying to get to BigSquidRC, it wasn’t you.. it was us. Our ISP had a small network hiccup. Things look to be fixed and up and running. We not return you to your regularly scheduled program! Thanks for your support!
April 12th, 2008 is the U.S. Vintage Trans-Am Nationals! This is a really cool idea. On-road RC racing with Vintage bodies! These events are getting more and more popular, and starting to pick up some great sponsors as well like HPI Racing, Parma PSE and EDS Racing Products! I will be doing my best to get out [...]
It looks like the Schumacher USA Speed Passion motors are now ready to get dirty! The new Competition 2.0 brushless motors come in 8.5, 7.5, and 6.5t. They are built to handle 2wd and 4wd off road vehicles. Make sure if you pick these up, to grab the Speed Passion GT ESC that comes with [...]
Yesterday Cubby mentioned the new Traxxas T-Maxx 3.3, so I figured I should get some pictures and information posted. The new T-Maxx 3.3 has 6.3 inch tall tires and 30mm (1 inch) longer wheelbase. The new tuned aluminum Resonator pipe adds 16% more power for a top speed of around 45mph. It has a [...]
Brian, the head cheese and uber editor of BigSquidRC.com suspended me last week. I never thought he would have been personally offended at what I had last turned in, but I guess he wasn’t impressed with my last Cub Report that contained more curse words than a typical rap song. This week, I’ll try my very best to keep [...]

I just got an email from a fan that snapped a picture of our racer, Tim Mohr’s X-Ray M18T Pro running the new Castle Creations Mamba Micro Pro! This is one of the first I have seen in the wild. Looks pretty good! I hope the rumors I keep hearing about this new ESC, with them getting [...]
Venue- RC Madness, Enfield Connecticut, carpet, indoor, off road. Track this year featured a HUGE wall corner (dubbed the wall-ride), and a SIC full on supercross style step-on-step-off. Date- March 28-30 – Turnout- 268 entries Big Winners- Billy Fischer, factory Losi driver, pwned the most people this year. His Losi Mini LST looked to be one of the [...]
Not much news this week. The biggest news was that Trinity is releasing a new brushed stock motor- it seems they didn’t get the memo that nobody gives a crap about brushed motors anymore. At this point, putting out a new brushed motor is like coming out with a new set of horse shoes instead of tires. Seems my paychecks [...]
I am still waiting for confirmation on this, but as of right now, it sounds like HPI has bought outright Team Associated and Team Losi! Team Associated is happy because it might put them back in the news, it’s been quiet from them. Team Losi is excited because they see it as an opportunity to sell 18 more versions of [...]
