THE Cub Report – Going Hard At March Bashness!
So here we are, just you and me (and a few thousand other people), for this intimate, March Bashness edition of THE Cub Report! Seriously, we are stoked that you are here, and even more stoked that the fuse for March Bashness is about to be lit!
Weeks before March Bashness all us knuckle-draggers at BigSquid start our own predictions. Just like in the real NCAA tournament, there are upsets in March Bashness, and that’s what makes it so fun to vote for our brackets. Inevitability a truck or two that we think are contenders for the win will get upset, but it is so cool to see what the general buying public thinks is hot. Although, after thinking about it a bit, in recent years March Bashness voting seems to have come down to large groups of hobbyists supporting their favorite brand. The mighty ARRMA ARRMY has become a real force in recent years, with some serious voting wars with Traxxas fanatics. Then you’ve got thousands of hardcore Pro-Line truck drivers, more and more Tekno fans each year, and loads of long time Losi fanatics. Man, we love watching the voting for March Bashness, I hope you do to, I know the industry folks monitor it like hawks! After all, the results are 100% you guys, and it is hard getting good marketing info like that.
So looking at the brackets, the very first match-up is insane- the giant Losi 1/5 gas monster truck against the monsterous Traxxas X-Maxx. After that, the side 1 bracket match-ups keep on being epic, with the Tekno monster truck going up against the world conquering ARRMA Kraton, the Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 against the DHK Maximus monster truck, and the ARRMA Outcast goes head to head against the HPI Savage. On the other side of the bracket we’ve got the mighty Pro-Line PRO-MT going up against the ECX Ruckus, the Tekno truggy versus the Pro-Line PRO-Fusion SC, the Traxxas UDR verus the Losi SBR (!!!!!!), with a Kyosho 1/8 nitro buggy against the Losi TENACITY truggy. Wow, just wow! Such great trucks duking it out this year!
Oh and, I have to even start talking about the crawler side of March Bashness! I think I will leave that for next week. Until then, have fun watching the NCAA basketball tournament, and feel free to get your vote on here at BigSquidRC for your favorite bash machines! Oh and, support your local bash spots and hobby shops when ya can!
