THE Cub Report, Version- What Is a Bash Like?

While some of you have been to an organized bash, my guess would be that the vast majority of you have not. You might be stuck in an office working the rc biz and too busy to make it to a local event, or you might live in a part of the country where there simply are no bashes (which [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Stoking the Fire

For the longest time now I’ve been planning on building a super scaled out, high performance 1.9 trail rig. It’s just that other responsibilities (aka different r/c’s) have always led to this project being stuck perpetually “on the drawing board”. No more! A massive amount of stuff has been ordered and as you can see in above pic, it’s time to [...]

PRO-MT Set Up Street

How To – Setting Up Your PRO-MT For Street Driving

There is no doubt that the vast majority of bash vehicles were designed to be used off-road, but end up being pavement burners. We see it every day, trucks (and buggies) of all sorts being driven around the local parking lot, many handling like a hay-wagon because they were not set-up properly. We decided to do an article on how to [...]

Average Joe’s Raceway – Wrench Invasion with Video

If that video does not want to make you get out and bash, I don’t know what will! Being the Wrench for Big Squid, I don’t get to go out to often. So when Brian asked me to go check out a local track, I jumped on it. I headed out to Average Joe’s Raceway in Lombard, Il. on Sunday [...]

ASK Cubby

ASK Cubby, Version- Your Weekly Questions, My Weakly Answers

“The Internet For years I have been watching traffic on rc forums go down. I don’t think it is the fault of the websites themselves, I think it shows a lack of interest in the hobby as a whole. I have seen many people leave the hobby while very few have entered. People have left the hobby to pursue other things, [...]
