Evan’s 5 Minutes…on HPI Savage XS Flux Day!

“On vehicle for delivery.” The most beautiful words anyone can see on a UPS tracking status screen, especially when on that truck is my HPI Savage Flux XS!!! Sure, I was hoping to get it a little sooner than some of the other guys out there, but the universe often works against us here at Big Squid. [...]

Evan’s 5 Minutes…on Falling WAY Behind!

Hey Squid Fans! It’s time for another five minutes with yours truly. I’m actually 2 weeks behind, so I guess this should technically be Evan’s 10 Minutes…but I digress. I’ve had some things going on personally that have prevented me from pulling my weight here at BSRC lately, but I’m hoping that these things are wrapping up [...]

Evan’s 5 Minutes…on 8 Days Until RCX!!!

What up Squiddys?! We are officially 8 days away from RCX! That means we are only 8 days away from BASH-A-PALOOZA! Most importantly, we are only 8 days away from giving out $1500 in prizes for BASH-A-PALOOZA! I’ve seen the stack of stuff we have lined up to give away and trust me when I tell [...]

Evan’s 5 Minutes…on too hot to be clever…

It’s Friday Squiddys! It’s time for another five minutes with yours truly. I’m not sure about the rest of the country, but it has been hotter than H-E-Double Hockey Sticks here this week. It has been utterly miserable. It has also had a pretty adverse effect on my bashing time, I can tell you that much. First [...]

Evan's 5 Minutes...on being part of the BSRC Crew...and othe…

Two weeks ago, Brian issued an open call for new BSRC writers/team members. Just as he stated, things have gotten insanely busy around here, and things will only get…more insane. We’re less than a month from RCX, where we’ve got some killer things lined up (Bash-A-Palooza, the BSRC booth, and of course booth babes!). We’re just [...]

Evan's 5 Minutes...on JConcepts Lowered Body Mount Kit for t…

In the beginning of May, Brian posted his review on the Traxxas Stampede 4×4. We actually have a couple of these trucks floating around the office and they really are a great vehicle. However, Brian made mention of a major design flaw (aesthetics wise) in his review that seems to be a common theme; the way the body [...]

Evan’s 5 Minutes…on Selling My Soul for the Savage XS Flux

What’s up Squiddys?! It’s time for another edition of Evan’s 5 Minutes… As the title suggests, the topic of today’s mad dash will be the newly announced HPI Savage XS Flux, and what I’m willing to do for it. Before we launch into that, I just wanted to congratulate Thunder Tiger and their T4-G3 Monster Truck on [...]

Evan’s 5 Minutes…on Customer Service Reviews & MIP

It’s time for a special Wednesday edition of Evan’s 5 Minutes! It seems like we’re all carving our own little piece of the BSRC pie lately, and I wanted to take just a second to show my support for Brian’s post earlier today about the “try-before-you-buy” idea at local hobby shops. I think it’s an awesome idea [...]

Evan’s 5 Minutes…on Paying it Forward

I credit the RC hobby with saving my life. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it’s not entirely an exaggeration. In my non-BSRC life, I work for a global company in the corporate Information Systems department. The stress is often insane, and being a computer guy, most of your hobbies involve electronics (console and PC games [...]

Evan’s 5 Minutes…on the Unveiling

I’ve been part of the Big Squid RC crew for a few months now. I’ve been sort of lurking in the shadows of the news and press releases surrounding the RC world and I’ve published a couple reviews. I owe Brian, Cubby, Jeff, and the other guys a huge “thank you” for giving me a chance, and [...]
