Hello everyone and welcome to the August 2016 edition of the Eat Sleep RC Giveaway drawing.

I’m Tony Phalen and we are here once again at Team Associated’s HQ in Lake Forest California to pick a winner for this month’s giveaway truck.

I’m here with Nick Wautlet, sales rep for AE and Reedy, and he will be joining me as we reach into the much larger bucket of names to pull the lucky winner of this month’s giveaway.

What’s up Nick, how’s it going?

It’s going pretty good, how are you?

Good. So as you can see we got one of your SC10 RTRs here. It’s the LiPo combo – comes with the battery and charger already in it. We also have the ESS-One Sound System in it, so it’s going to sound really awesome. And, of course, the body painted by Matt of Sharkbait Designworks. He did a killer job, it looks really good.

Looks really good.

Oh, and AKA tires on it so it will have lots of grip. We’ll be including the stock set of tires in case you don’t want to wear these out right away.

So, are you ready to get to the name pull?

Yah! Lets’ go for it.

So we had to get a much bigger bucket because we had right around 1200 entries – so it’s much bigger and it’s quite full. So, the next contest maybe we can fill this thing up! So let me shake them up for you here.


Alright so dig in, where you want to go – top, bottom, sides.

Go to the bottom!

Alright, who’s the lucky winner?

Justin McNeal from California.

Well alright, congratulations Justin. We’ll get in touch with you about your new car!

Sounds good, congratulations bud!

CompetitionX would like to give a huge thanks to everyone involved this month – Team Associated, Reedy, AKA and Sharkbait Designworks. Please take a moment and check their links in the description below.

We’d also like to thank everyone who signed up for this month’s giveaway. As always, we clear the entries each month so you will need to re-submit your name to enter September’s contest. Head over to to find out what it is.

Thanks for watching, and thanks Nick for joining us today.

Yah, of course.

Here I’ll go ahead and shake your hand.

Yah alright!

Thanks everyone.
