The Retired Report – RC Racing is COOKED

You heard what I just said, rc racing is COOKED. It’s BENT AF, as it has now become literally a race to extinction. Who allowed this to happen? Why doesn’t anyone actually fix it? Welp, I am Cubby, and welcome to a good ole’ fashioned Cub Report. Let’s start ranting, shall we? 🙂 You may not have noticed, but in 2024 [...]

THE Retired Report – Passion Projects & FMS Is Smeshing It!

Ya know, I’m not getting paid for this! And, well, to be honest, that’s entirely my fault, as I’m the guy that decided to “retire from rc”, LOL. But see, I have a problem, I’m a loudmouth, and sometimes things just hit me in such a way, that I feel the need to spew them here on BigSquidRC. For free. [...]

Holy smokes ya bunch of bashing lunatics, it has gotten freak’n hot outside! Well, at least here in the Northern Hemisphere, summer temps are now going through the roof. Where I live, the high was 96 degrees F yesterday, and the temp will tend to stay 80 or above for the next 3-4 months. And while I personally love warm [...]

THE Retired Report- Wanna Bash On Grandma’s Face?!?!?

So I’m cruising YouTube, blowing off another day, just like any other, and I come across the crazy video below. In the video, it shows an rc truck driving around a house. You see it come down some wood stairs without scratching them. You also see the truck drive over a precious piano. You then see it drive over “Dad’s” [...]

THE Retired Report – Super Caps For the Win

Ya know, living the life of luxury can be hard on a man. A man can only drink so many bottles of Dom, and extinguish so many hand rolled Cuban cigars, before he feels the need to actually do something. I could go into Brian’s office and CA glue all his desk drawers shut, but where is the fun in [...]



The man, the myth, the legend, that is right I am talking about Cubby.  The reality of not being able to enjoy a weekly Cub report or Ask Cubby is hard to imagine. I myself am a glass is half full type of person so rather than dwell on how much Cubby will be missed I say focus on how [...]

ASK Cubby – Smart Questions, Questionable Answers

“RC Super Stadium Truck Hello Mr. Cubby, I have a question: As I watch Stadium Super Truck races online, I think-wow, that would make for a great RC platform. They race, they jump, they bash, they go fast and they look scale. But when I look for an RC SST, I don’t see IFS/solid rear axle. I see stadium [...]
