Durango I don't know about
Sc10 I heard they're good but can be harder to get dialed in
Blitz I wouldn't get for racing
So my choice would be the 22sct I don't race 2wd sc but when I decide to go for that class it's going to be the 22 unless tekno announces one by then

I would say an SC10.2. The guys I race with that have 22's say that they are so finicky and hard to get dialed in and varies from week to week. I understand all things will vary from week to week but they say its a big difference.

i would check at your local track to see what they support. if they dont carry Associated or HPI parts that should eliminate those rides.

at my track they support Losi, Associated, and HPI... so i'm lucky. but i will tell you it takes a lot more "skill" to run a blitz up front. you really have to drive it on the edge to be up front.

I just picked up a blitz flux and my first impression is that the truck looks great and the quality looks better than the rtr sc10 I had a while back.

To the average racer any listed will work as long as you have parts support.

I like the shocks and electronics better in my blitz and well as the hb megabites tires that come on the blitz flux stock.

And also to anyone who tells you the HPI is not raceworthy dont believe everything you hear as all this is just opinions..

I bought a rtr brushed blitz a couple years ago and took it to the track and placed in the top spot running stock sct against trucks that were well modded.
This was with the stock tires and a NIMH battery.
As long as you are not looking at a Slash or a Helion truck you will be fine for racing.

I like the durango desc210 because it has big bore shocks light weight and u could move the motor to mid or rear.
the associated is hard to dial in
there is a shop by where I pass by when I go to the track (sdrc clay)
I just want to buy the kit and put in my own electronis.


My friend has associated sc10 and still hasnt got to dial in his rc.
he had some trouble with suspension and more

I have an Associated SC10 and a Blitz ESE. I have race both trucks and really prefer the Blitz. The Blitz drives and feels more planted, jumps and lands better, it suits my driving style better. However if I were to get a new racing truck at this moment, I think the SC-10.2 is the best bang for the buck. All of the short course trucks are good enough to be competitive on any given night.

ive only driven my durango, my old xxxsct and the 22sct.


I have to say i love my durango. Even though its the RTR version you can win races with
it right out of the box. well worth the money. the 22sct and xxxsct are both awesome as well. but for the money you cant beat the durango

Saw a couple of Durango 2wd at the track today. Guys seemed to like them and they held their own.

I am considering a SC10.2 or SC10RS...any thoughts between those two? About the same price but one is RTR. I am willing to build it if the truck is going to be better in the long run.
