We were excited to get a chance to speak with Chris Dickerson from Horizon Hobby, and Todd Mattson from Pro-Line Racing about the recent Pro-Line acquisition by Horizon. We were on a pretty tight schedule, but got about 10 good questions in that were on a lot of people’s minds.You can visit the official Pro-Line Racing Site at that [...]


Video Interview with Juan Pablo Montoya

At the 2018 Airmeet and Racemeet in Donauwörth, Germany put on by Horizon Hobby, we were given an impromptu interview with Juan Pablo Montoya! We have met Juan several times, and he is an absolute pro! Even during our unrehearsed and unprepared (as you’ll see) questions, Juan just knocked it out of the park! Thank you Juan for your time [...]


Interview Vance Lund

Interview With Pro-Line’s Vance Lund

First announced several months ago, we were very intrigued when we saw Pro-Line’s MX43 Tires & Impulse Pro-Loc Wheels for the Traxxas X-Maxx. Not only were they specifically designed to reduce tire ballooning, but they also use a new style of bead to totally eliminate tires coming off the wheel. After giving them a severe workout during our Review Process, [...]


Spektrum Ryan Dunford Interview

Interview With Spektrum’s Ryan Dunford

A few weeks ago Spektrum announced their innovative S6240RX Servo. Servos don’t usually get a lot of attention, but the Spektrum unit is quite unique as it features a built in receiver. The BigSquidRC Bash Crew decided to get with Spektrum to learn more about it, and while we had them at our ear, to ask a number of other [...]

With Pro-Line putting out more scale and rock crawling gear every day, we decided to reach out to Paul Willhite for an interview.

[...]


Matt LeMay Redcat Racing

Interview With Matt LeMay & FC Brigham From Redcat Racing

Right about a month ago we posted a video that Redcat Racing had worked up showing them durability testing their TR-MT8E BE6S monster truck. The video was truly no holds barred as the Redcat crew put their test truck through an incredible beating, the type of beating that you just don’t see every day. Our entire Bash Crew was pretty [...]


Attila Kiss Mammuth Works

Interview – Mammuth Works’ Attila Kiss

The Mammuth Works Rewarron 1/3 Scale Off-Road Truck has been making some serious waves in the rc industry. It looks to be the biggest, baddest, machine to ever hit the market. No, the Rewarron isn’t shipping quite yet, but for a bunch of eager large scale buyers, that day isn’t far away. We recently had a chance to talk with [...]

Wednesday Interview – ARRMA’s Rob Hopkins

ARRMA may seem like the ‘New Guys’ on the RC scene, but they have a lot of talent and experience behind the scenes. They sort of popped up out of nowhere with 6 vehicles covering just about every genre, and the vehicles we have tested and reviewed here at Big Squid RC have been exceptional at taking a serious beating. [...]
