Let there be light on your 1/10 scale rig with the new LD Racing LED Light Bar. 13 crazy bright LEDS ready to connect to the AUX port on your receiver, or to AA or AAA battery packs. These lights are designed to run on 5-6V, and would look sweet across the top of your scaler. Head over to [...]
Both Bill and I were pretty sold on the Aquacraft Minimono when we showed it at the end of July, but now Thunder Tiger has something a little bit bigger with their new Outlaw Jr. Brushless RTR Boat. Measuring only 29 inches long, it will fit perfectly in smaller bodies of water. Featuring a water-cooled motor, ESC and [...]
Bill posted up a cool little video of some of the stuff we were doing while in Peoria over the weekend testing stuff for the upcoming shootout. The video show’s us messing around with the Traxxas Stampede doing all sorts of flips and fails, with some sweet slow motion footage. Check it out!Nice job Wrench!

Duratrax has a new charger offering with their Onyx 245 AC/DC Dual Charger. It handles all different types of batteries, has lipo charging ports, and can charge from the wall or the track. It comes with both Traxxas and Deans Ultra plugs, can charge batteries of different chemistries, and can balance up to 3S. I personally HATE [...]
The peeps over at JQ Products have gained the titled sponsor for their 2012 season by reaching an agreement with Skullcandy. Know for their mainstream headphones and other audio equipment, Skullcandy and JQ both share similar roots of small time start-ups. Skullcandy is the #2 reseller of headphones in the U.S. behind Sony, which is a pretty big [...]
Yes, I’m just like most of you guys, there simply isn’t enough time in the day (or days in the week). I spent the first part of the weekend trying to escape from Hurricane Irene. Then I hauled butt back to help out the BSRC bash crew on our latest shootout. Then of course I had to catch [...]
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 [...]
It seems like every week or so we get a PR from LRP with something about the SXX V.2 Speed Controller in it, and this week is no exception. The latest news is that the SXX will now be bundled with the Vector X-12L Short Course 550 motor. This is good for those that like to keep their stuff paired [...]
We just heard from JConcepts they now have the Illuzion B4.1 Finnisher Worlds Body. It fits the Associated B4.1 and B4 models with the +8mm extended chassis. It has a increased windshield to help with air flow in the jumps and the spaces between the body and chassis have been tightened up to help keep the air from getting all up [...]
Cubby– To start things off today I must say congratulations to Chris D. for winning my Electrix Boost buggy last night. BigSquid held the contest over on Facebook where whoever was the 100th poster won my Boost and the 100th reply was from Chris. So congrats Chris, I hope you enjoy my Boost! If you didn’t win last night [...]
Hey everyone, just saw that Castle Creations is recalling some of their larger scale ESC’s. The Phoenix Ice HV, The Mamba XL and the Hydra Ice HV. They are asking that customers cease operation of these controllers, and send them back to Castle for modifications. I know several people using the Mamba XL, so I thought we should help [...]

It’s that simple. The comment has to be attached to THIS post on FB. (nested replies do not count, must be [...]
