Every year we here at the Big Squid RC Headquarters gather around a large table and toss out ideas for Bash Vehicle of the year. This year, one of the ideas tossed around was that we should consider other products as well, so we have decided to start a Bash Product of the Year category! Since this was our first time voting for products, and vehicles, everyone had some good ideas of what should make the list but there were a few that really stood out above the others. This years winner for 2018 Bash Product of the Year is the Spektrum DX5 Rugged from Horizon Hobby! Our review isn’t even live yet, but the radio has just been awesome. Surviving these huge 20+ foot tosses and drops to the ground, actually being able to run a vehicle while submerged, it’s been awesome. Now remember, we do the crazy stuff so you don’t have to! I’m pretty sure Spektrum does not recommend using the radio while it’s under water, or playing catch with it, but it can really take some serious abuse!
Runners up in the product category are the Pro-Line Racing Bash Armor Bodies, and the RC4WD Bendpak Lift.
The Bash Armor bodies have been what bashers have been dreaming about for years! Finally a RC body that we can put on a vehicle, go out and get stupid with it, and not have to replace the body again when we are done bashing!
The Bandpak Lift should be in EVERY scale rc garage. Talk about an out of no where product that is just so cool to own and show off! With the popularity of the scale scene, and the truly amazing scale looks and versatility of that lift, it was a top choice.
What an amazing 2018! Can’t wait to see what products come out in 2019 and blow our minds.
