Everybody’s Scalin’ – All Aboard, Next Stop the Holidays

Crazy how fast this year has gone, as we are on the precipice of my favorite week. Thanksgiving week, that is. I’m a big fan for one simple reason, as I’m sure many of you are – it’s typically the shortest work week of the year! Around 4 years ago I started a tradition of doing a “holiday build” during the [...]

ASK Cubby – Your Letters, My Banter

“3D Printing from the local Hobby Shop Hey Cubby! Do you think hobby shops would invest in 3D printing machines and the software to draw people back? Having someone on-site who could lay down your ideas into software like Blender or AutoCAD and print it on-site would be pretty neat. Even having someone there to reproduce that hard to find broken part would [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Bustin’ Broncs

Traxxas made a big splash this week with several big announcements pertaining to the TRX-4 platform. The first, and most “visual”, of the announcements was that a Bronco shell will be available. No word on the wheelbase of the body, but it will most likely be the same as the Defender, right under 13″. It’ll come in red and sunset. Hopefully [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Tuff Trucks

This week I wanted to share a winter project with you. Yeah, I know it’s not technically winter, but still. Close enough. My group of friends has long been wanting to add a “tuff truck” class to our monster truck racing club.
