Those of us that drive AXIAL Scorpions know that a good bind, or a powerful motor, can pop or snap our drive shafts. Well, RC4WD (RC4WD.com) has come up with a solution for this weak spot in the Scorpion driveline. The Punisher Shaft is a stainless steel shaft that is a direct replacement for the stock Axial plastic [...]
We never like to see this stuff happen. At the last big Midwest RC Drag Racing event, Shredder-X had a glitch/run-away and his R/C Motorcycle took off at the end of the track. Sadly, it was perfectly timed with a oncoming car. 🙁 Younger viewers may want to look away.
While a lot of people enjoy our forum area, we have had a few requests for us to open up a place to hang out and chat. We bring you the Big Squid RC Chat! You will need to be registered with the forum to be able to use this new feature. So far, people have really been enjoying [...]
Ok, check this out! New from Aquacraft comes this cool looking Alligator Tours Nitro RTR Airboat! How cool would this thing look running in your lake or pond? Sure.. anyone can just run one of those ‘normal’ looking boats around.. but this thing would be awesome! It would be cool to put a little person in there [...]

Least not forget, those that have died for our freedom, and our right to take brand new $800 rc cars and jump them off the side of a house. Memorial weekend is not only one of the most important holidays (honoring our military men, woman, and those that gave their lives for us), but also one of the busiest in [...]
Since I know there are more then a few people out there that have trouble viewing the HiDef videos, I will start posting them over on HobbyZip.com since just about anyone can see the stuff there. This is the 1/5th Scale RC HPI Baja 5B doing an awesome barrel roll video. Enjoy!
Pro Driver, Tim Mohr, and I were out one morning testing the new HPI Baja 5B. We were also testing out the new HD Camera. The footage isn’t at full HD Def, or it would be too big to download, but I think it’s pretty good. You’ll need a codec (or quicktime) to play it. To [...]
Besides all the great tires, rims and car bodies, Pro-Line Racing seems to always come out with something else cool. This time it’s the Attack heli canopy for the Mini Titan. They also have one that fits the TRex 450 Heli! So if your a RC Helicopter person, you are gonna want to pick these [...]
I figure that would get your attention! Usually I post the normal Acer Racing logo whenever they have an announcement, but since this one is for their upcoming calendar, I thought I would do something special. The calendar is now up for pre-ordering at $18, and ships in September. I hope each picture has [...]
New from Schumacher USA is the Speed Passion GT LPF ESC. If you are wondering what all the letters stand for, it’s officially the Speed Passion Gran Turismo Low Profile Electronic Speed Control. My guess is, they would have to ship it in a very large box if they kept that name, so they went [...]
Outerwears Performance Products is now offering ultimate shock protection for Big Bore shocks! They are available in solid colors and now their new designs as shown. I have been looking to pick up some Outerwears stuff for my new HPI 5B. Hopefully they have the cool designs in the jumbo size as well! 🙂
Another week, another Cub Report- here’s all you really need to know about what went down in the rc universe last week. It’s been years since the revolutionary Traxxas T-Maxx came out. Since then, most companies have jumped on the bandwagon and produced their versions of the platform. The HPI Savage was the first, and probably toughest competitor in the category. [...]
