What's kick'n in rc today? This->

* #hobbytown  is giving away a new #helion  dominus 10SCv2. Their contest ends today, hit our dot com for more info.

* Ever notice in our #carisma  car reviews we give them very low scores for parts availability? Well they are out to change that, they've opened a new on-line store so if your LHS doesn't stock Carisma parts, you still have a good option to get what you need.

* #yokomo  has a new trick looking drift car. It comes as a kit and should start shipping in a couple of weeks.

* ASK Cubby goes up later today, this week he talks about range on #spektrum  radios.

Have a great day!

We have several new vehicles in the #rcnews  today-

* #lrp   has announced their version 2 of the S10 Blast SC. The biggest news on the upgrade is the addition of "splashproof" electronics.

* We have posted coverage of the mud race from the #axialracing  RECON G6 that was held last weekend in St Louis Missouri.

* #kyosho  is all over the #murderedout  trend with their new #audi  R8. This is a 10th scale 4wd on their basic Fazer platform. Oh, it comes with a full set of drift wheels/tires to boot.

* #ofna  has a new on-roader as well, the Hyper GT. This is a big .28 powered nitro burner that comes with a 2 speed tranny to make sure you get from point A to point B in the fastest time possible.

* Our #vaterra  Halix hop-up series continues this week with a look at installing new adjustable tie-rods.

Hello fellow hobbyists, here is some of the #rcnews  from today->

* The #losi  5ive-T was voted by you to be the winner of our March Bashness tournament! Thanks to all that voted, and congrats to the 5ive-T for being voted the baddest ass bash machine on the planet!

* Looking for an uber-ed out SCT? #murfdogg  has announced their new 2wd Physco sct. It has loads of carbon fiber and aluminum, and it comes with other goodies like ceramic bearings, MIP CVDs, and Pro-Line wheels/body too! Street price is close to $600.

* #jconcepts  has a new fully licensed 1972 Chevy C10 body for your #traxxas  Slash 4x4.

* #serpent  has announced their high-end 747-e electric 200mm touring car. This is their nitro rig converted over to electric, making for one beefy machine.

* Our #helion  10SCv2 review should be going up either later today or tomorrow, and we posted our review of the latest #axialracing  crawler yesterday.

* We have spent the last two days dialing in the #avc  on our review  #spektrum  DX4S. We installed it in our Pro-Line PRO2 buggy and have been learning a LOT about what can (and can't) be done with electronic stability assistance.

We are starting to recover from the G6 event, what a great time! Cool trucks, awesome people, it doesn't get much better.

In the #rcnews  today->

* #rc4wd  has some new spiked tires for your #tamiya  Clodbuster. Street price is $34 a pair.

* #prolineracing  is teasing their new 2013 Ram 1500 short course truck body. Can't wait for more pictures on this one.

Oh HECK YA, welcome to the WeekEND!!!

* The #axialracing  G6 is in the STL this weekend. If you are in the area drop by and say hello to the Bash Crew. Cubby, Tim, Adam The Intern, and Doug The Scaler Guy will all be in attendance.

* #rc4wd  has some new gnarly looking 1.9 tires. These are a version 2 and are taller than the originals, which should come in quite handy in those deep mud sections.

* Our review for the #helion  10SCv2 is now up! We had a lot of fun bashing with it, and found it much harder to break than the original.

* #helimax  has a new quad called the 230Si. The 230 is not a small quad, comes with all the bells and whistles, and has a low street price of $149.

* #serpent  announced their latest nitro touring car, the 748. Lots of uber looking parts on this one.

We hope you have an incredible weekend!! We'll be busy at the G6 and also working on reviews for the Durango DETC410, a Spektrum AVC system, and another review that has to go unnamed for now.
