HPI Garage Banner…There we go…Now that I have your undivided attention…

Yes you did read right! Our friends over at HPI Racing have opened a new sub-site called the HPI Garage. This site is built to help you keep track of the HPI cars you own as well as being a repository of information regarding parts, hop ups, and forum links related to your HPI vehicles.

By joining the Garage and signing up for a MyHPI account, you also get entered into quarterly contests automatically. Which brings me back to the Savage XL Octane. Anyone who signs up for an account by March 31st will be entered into this quarter’s drawing, the very first XL Octane off the line!! Don’t worry if you have no HPI vehicles, you can still sign up for an account too!

Still don’t believe me? Check out all the details of MyHPI and the contest via THIS LINK.

Ok, so if you haven’t heard about our Big Squid RC Bash and Swap Meet, you need to click that link! To help us get people excited for the bash our friends from Hobby Town USA Orland Park have given us two vehicles to give away! A Helion Invictus and a Helion Animus.

So how do you enter to win? (I heard someone yell from the back)

Easy! You need to CLICK LIKE on two facebook posts. One is on the Big Squid RC Facebook Page and the other is on the Hobby Town USA Orland Park page. We will then take all those people that entered, and randomly choose a winner of the Invictus on August 2nd! You do NOT need to be present to win, but you do need to live in the USA.

Then at the Big Squid RC Bash on August 3rd we take whoever is attending that also liked those posts. Those people that show up to the bash will get SPECIAL raffle tickets! And we will choose a winner live at the bash and hand them a brand new Animus! (You need to be present to win) So if you are attending the bash, the odds of you winning are probably pretty good! We will also have a TON of other stuff to give away, this is the first of many announcements to come.

So what are you waiting for? Go find the two posts on the Facebook pages, and like them for a chance to win!
