Here we are folks, another week in the rc hobby. Wow, the last year or two have been wild haven’t they? The good news is that things seem to be settling down, still, it may be another year or two before we see how everything shakes out. Any which way, welcome to THE Cub Report, and as always, thanks for [...]
“UDR VS SBR I cannot find a solid answer, I read the review on both and saw that someone asked this already, but you were waiting to review UDR. Now that it’s been done can we finally get a clear answer? Thanks, Favian J.” Cubby- Yo homeskillet, thanks for writing in. We will get ya out a sticker pack. So what’s the final verdict? This [...]
Over the last half decade we’ve seen scale realism go from taking a backseat to performance, to becoming the number 1 thing that consumers demand. Initially it started in the rock crawling scene, now it is everywhere. A great example of this is the new Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer. The Traxxas UDR was designed for incredible scale looks on the [...]
“#mrt2018 Cubby, I just read the coverage for Mud rocks and tears on the front page. I wish I could have gone but was stuck at home 4 hours away. How did it go and when might you hold the same type of event again? Trevor B.” Cubby- Yo hey ya Trevor, thanks for writing in. A snail mail for a sticker pack bro. Ever [...]
Across the globe the DHK Hobby Hunter BL short course truck is well known, but not so much here in America. A few months ago HRP Distributing started bringing DHK into the states so that the American bashing crowd could find out what’s up. We’ve been bashing/thrashing/driving the Hunter BL short course truck to see just how it stacks up. [...]
Hello folks and welcome to THE Cub Report. Once again, there is a LOT going on this week, so I’ll attempt to keep this as brief as possible (never happens.. LOL). First up… Huge props to the #arrmaarmy for crushing all the competition in BigSquid’s 2018 March Bashness. The ARRMA Kraton is our 2018 Overall March Bashness Champion, and deservedly so, [...]
“Scale Event Hi Cubby, The Bigsquidrc scale crawl is going to be my first one! I am so excited I can’t wait. I have a pair of SCX10s that I will be bringing. My question to you fine sir is what else do I need to bring? See you Saturday Cubby! Martin S.” Cubby- Yo hey Martin, thanks for writing in on this fine Thursday. [...]
The war at the top of bash mountain is beyond fierce. You’ve got large scale short course trucks, you’ve got massively over-powered 1/8 monster trucks, you’ve got low slung truggies that seem to be glued to the ground in the corners, etc. One of the trucks at the top for Losi is the LST 3XL-E from Horizon Hobby. The LST [...]
Coming to you live from the greater Chicago metro area, welcome to THE Cub Report. We are insanely busy around this place, so lets see how fast I can bust this out. 🙂 First up, Mud, Rocks, and Tears! Finally, our first ever scale crawling event is upon us. #mrt2018 goes down this Saturday in Crystal City, Missouri, and we would [...]
“Traxxas Rustler Cubby, I am just getting back into rc cars, could you please recommend some basic upgrades for my Traxxas Rustler? I basically drive around my yard and local parking lot and don’t want to spend a lot of cash. Ronnie F.” Cubby- Yo hey Ronnie, thanks for taking the time out of your day to write in. Oh ya, don’t forget, a [...]
After reviewing a couple of other trucks from DHK, we finally got a shot at one of their 8th scalers. A few weeks ago we started testing the 1/8th RTR DHK Hobby Maximus Monster Truck to see how it stacks up to its competition. The Maximus sports quite the affordable price point, we wanted to see if the truck was [...]
So here we are folks, another week in rc. Hummmm, let me think. Naw, I can’t really think of anything exciting that went down at all last week.

“apply Hello, If it is possible please send me manuals of 2016 Tamiya Blackfoot Re-Release. Thank you very much Best regards, Roo” Cubby- Ya know, I dig letters like these, Roo, if you are seeing this, shoot me a snail mail for a sticker pack. Why do I like letters like this? Because they are so easy to answer. OK Roo, YES, is it “possible” that I could [...]
