Cubby- Hi there Cory and thanks for the email. And guess what? Boy are you in luck. The Losi 8IGHT-T E 3.0 was announced a couple of days after I received your email. Cut the check for $579 and you will have the time of your life. Hit your LHS or This Link for further details/info.

“Motor Explosion
What is the fastest way to make my motor explode?
You rule and everybody else drools,
Seth E.”

Cubby- So ya, I get some pretty “off the wall” questions sometimes, pretty much like this one.

So… Seth’s question leaves a bunch more in its wake. Like… why does he want to blow it up? Does “Seth” even know the difference between a motor and an engine? How many beers deep was Seth before he hit the “send” button?

But still, I feel obliged to give some sort of answer, so here it goes…

Cubby’s Top 3 Ways To Blow-Up a Motor

3. Beat it to death with a hammer. Yes, I know that isn’t really “blowing it up”, but it is sure to be dead afterwards and you will have worked out some of your inner frustrations.

2. Let Iron Mike gear your car for you. For whatever reason Iron Mike always thinks the biggest pinion in his toolbox is the best one for every single application. Mikeee has killed off a whole lot of motors this way so it is proven to work like a charm.

1. Plug it into a wall socket. This is kinda like plugging in an old Hart subwoofer, except much more dangerous.

So there ya have it Seth, best of luck killing off your old motor.

So there ya have it, another edition of ASK Cubby has gone live. Hit me up at my personal email, thecubreportrc at Any letter that hits the big time will earn you a free BSRC sticker pack, while being declared as “Letter of the Month” will land ya a free BSRC t-shirt.

Peace & Love,
