While I was out of commission for my last injury I had a lot of down time, literally because I couldn’t walk or stand for too long, lol. That time gave me the opportunity to build the Big Squid RC scale cabin for Juicebox Off-road Park. Unlike Chase’s Hardware store that is built out of thin wood the cabin is [...]

ASK Cubby – More Great Questions, More Terrible Answers

“Corally 6s cars Yo Cubby, I’ve seen the new Corally 6S cars and I think (like a lot of other people out there) they look a lot like the Arrma 6S line-up. What do you think about that?
