EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – HORIZON RC FEST 19

What a recovery week it has been as Cubby would say. You know an event was good when you feel you need to take a week off after the fact, and Horizon RC Fest 2019 was no different. Last years RC Fest was my first big event being on the Big Squid RC payroll and I was a little shy. [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – JUICEBOX OFF-ROAD PARK REMODEL

Last years Summer Opener was going to be hard to top, I mean come on, how do you top a scale Metallica concert. I really loved the Jurassic park trail from last years Axial Fest and wanted to [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – WHAT SIZE RIG DO YOU WEAR?

What’s going on Squid nation! I have been working on my scale off-road park that last few weeks trying to get it ready for Saturday’s summer opener. Made some new trails and rebuilt some old ones as well. But the new Axial Racing 1:24 Deadbolt got me thinking. Pros and cons of smaller scale and bigger scale rigs. 1:24: Now these little [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – RUST BUCKET

In the past I have tried a few different methods to try and create rust. Mixing cinnamon with brown paint and all kinds of do-it-yourself techniques. All of which ended in a complete disaster and left me feeling beaten. Then I saw my buddy Joe’s Traxxas Trx4 Bronco and the rust job he did using a 3-step rusting kit. I [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – CRAWLERS 4 KIDS

It’s a good feeling when you can help someone out, right? Well, it’s an even better feeling when you can use RC’s to help. Hearing stories of how the hobby has changed someone’s life for the better can almost put some saw dust in your eyes. From beating addictions, to the less fortunate, the stories are endless. So, when I [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – KITS AND RTR’s

Over the last few months I have been doing a lot of building. In turn I blame Big Squid RC for sending me to USTE lol. I know there are two types in the scale world, those who build and those who just want some scale right out of the box. Whatever one you are, they are both fine and [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – RC4WD BIG EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT

I just love when RC companies do teasers of upcoming rigs or events. So when I started to see RC4WD teasing about something last week on their Instagram I was very intrigued. Having to wait those hand full of days is never easy. I am a very impatient person so once Wednesday arrived and RC4WD went live on their Facebook [...]

Unbelievable! In a good way. The great folks at RC4WD sent us some goodies including a Trailfinder 2 kit. I have a few builds going on already but once that RC4WD box showed up at the Big Squid office I knew everything else was going to be put on hold. I have been really looking forward to doing this RC4WD [...]

Well, I can honestly say I am in full build mode. In total I have about seven builds I want to have done by fall. Sounds like a lot, but in reality I have most of the stuff I need. There is more to a scale build then just painting a body or adding some scale items on to your [...]
