[Update: Live show is now over. Check out the replay above or on our YouTube channel.]
Welcome to Big Squid RC Live tv video show for make happy time on your internet box dot com. Tonight’s show is probably going to be about March-Bashness 2013. Maybe some other stuff thrown in for good measure. Brian probably won’t be in again, he’s in Vegas trying to save this sinking ship, he took the last $97 in the Big Squid bank account and he’s putting it all on Black 29. So that means hosting duties are left to me, Jeff. Once again you’ll be witness to a slow motion train wreck. It’ll be awesome I promise! We do have our chatbox back tonight so feel free to chat along and we’ll answer your questions and even INTERACT with YOU live!
Tonight’s show is sponsored by Duratrax and their wonderful Onyx chargers. Check them out at the Duratrax website.

Another work week is nearly over, TGIF, time to get those trucks out and have some fun.
So the time came around for the 2012 Downtown Joliet Easter Parade and I needed to come up with something one of a kind to promote my old grade school. Then I was walking though my local Hobby Lobby and I found a huge plastic egg. That was it! An RC Easter Egg! So I went home with the egg and started dremeling away, I mounted it on top of an HPI Wheely King, but when it was done it just didnt look as cool as I wanted. To add to the wow factor I cut a hole in the top of the egg and mounted a stuffed Easter Bunny in it. Now I had an Easter Bunny Driving a 4×4 Easter Egg. The Egg turned heads like no other and everyone who got the chance to ask about it wanted to know where they could get one and how much I paid. Riding wheelies through the parade really got the crowd going and helped promote the school. Happy Easter! from Adam the Intern!
No real bunnies were harmed in the making f this post.

At our next demo we’ll be giving away not one, but TWO of the not available in stores yet ECX Torment short course truck. We’ve been bashing these at all of our demos and having a blast, now it’s possibly your turn. You have to be here to win, so get to the IHobby show for our 3:00 demo. Plus you never know, something like yesterday might happen where a company here just comes up and tells us to give away one of their vehicles!
Many thanks to ECX RC for putting up these great prizes.
Lucky Patrick watched our demo and then walked away with a brand new Evader DT. And that’s all you have to do to possibly win. We have one more give away to do today at our 3:00 demo. It’s going to be a big one, we have TWO ECX Torments to give away. These trucks aren’t going to be available in stores for another couple weeks and we’re giving TWO away today! So make sure you get over here and at the Big Squid RC track.
Many thanks to Duratrax for giving us the new Evader DT to give away!
Take a look at this awesome tractor on display at the NR/CTPA pulling track. It’s the only Super Stock class tractor in the world right now and it’s packing a humongous 93cc Go Kart Engine. Hopefully it’ll run some heats tomorrow, they typically run a few at the top the every hour.
And a second winner walks away with a brand new vehicle. This time a HPI Racing Savage Flux XS went home with Kyle. Many thanks to HPI Racing for giving us two vehicles to give away today!
What’s this? A third winner today? You bet. We had so many people and were getting so much attention at the demo that the great guys at Speed Passion ran a brand new RS2 stadium truck over to our booth and told us to give it away! Things like that happen around here, so you gotta be here, you never know.
Our next demos will take place on Sunday at 11:00 and 3:00, we have even more trucks to give away, so get here.
